What did SNL star Chris Redd say about Elon Musk?
As Musk gears up to host Saturday Night Live there are a few things he needs to learn, however, fortunately for the Tesla boss cast member Chris Redd is around to lend a helping hand.
On May 1, Musk asked his 53million followers on Twitter for help with a few “skit” ideas he had.
“Throwing out some skit ideas for SNL. What should I do?” Musk asked Twitter.
He then floated the joke: “Baby Shark & Shark Tank merge to form Baby Shark Tank” and “Irony Man – defeats villains using the power of irony”.

However, before Musk gets too ahead of himself, Redd had a piece of advice: “First I’d call Em sketches,” the comedian replied to Musk.

In a since been deleted post, both Bowen Yang and Aidy Bryant took swipes at Musk on their social media accounts.
When Musk posted, “Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is” to his Twitter account, Yang screen-grabbed the tweet to post to his own Instagram story.
Yang captioned the tweet, “What the f— does this even mean?”

Bryant was a bit more subtle, as she posted a retweet from Senator Bernie Sanders calling it a “moral obscenity” that “the 50 wealthiest people in America today own more wealth than the bottom half of our people.”
The tweet was added to Bryant’s Instagram story just hours after Musk was announced as host.

The spike came after a price slump last week, when the meme-inspired cryptocurrency fell after hitting an all-time high, Reuters reported.
Supporters of the cryptocurrency used hashtags to fuel a rally, bumping up the price of dogecoin, until it eventually lost steam.
This recent spike pushes the value of the currency back towards the record highs that it experienced earlier this month.
