Billionaire Elon Musk Admitted He Has Asperger Syndrome

Billionaire Elon Musk Admitted He Has Asperger Syndrome

The owner of Tesla and SpaceX joked in an interview about his behaviors and fixations.

The success of Elon Musk, one of the richest men in the world, can hardly be questioned. It has one of the oldest electric vehicle companies (Tesla) and has been an undisputed ally for NASA with space travel (SpaceX).

Around Musk there are many comments, some involve his fortune, others his strict way of working and running his companies, and even some kind of prophecy in which it is assured that a man who bears his name would be the first to colonize Mars , career in which it is submerged.

In the last hours Musk was invited to the American program Saturday Night Live (SNL), Elon Musk, and it was in this space that he admitted that he has Asperger syndrome.

In his opening monologue on the show, the billionaire bragged about being the first person with this syndrome to be invited to SNL. “Or at least the first to admit it . ” “I know I’ve said or posted weird things, but it’s just the way my brain works. To anyone who has offended I simply want to say: I reinvented electric cars and I am sending people to Mars in a rocket, “he explained, joking a bit about the messages he always makes through Twitter.

“Did you think he was going to be a relaxed and normal guy too?” . Musk has received much criticism for comments such as his public mockery of the SEC ( Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States) and for insulting a diver who rescued a group of children trapped in a cave in Thailand.

But on this show he exceeded expectations and also made jokes about himself: his tweets, the unusual name of one of his sons (X Æ A-12 Musk).

But that was not all. The billionaire has been characterized by moving the cryptocurrency market through his public statements. At the beginning of 2021 he assured that he had allocated part of his capital to invest in cryptocurrencies and that his clients could already make purchases at Tesla through this denomination, exploiting the price of bitcoin and taking it to exceed US $ 50,000 dollars.

In recent weeks, Musk has been linking another cryptocurrency: dogecoin in his speech.

Pressed to say exactly what this cryptocurrency was, the billionaire described it as “an unstoppable vehicle that is going to take over the world . ” To later add that it really is a hubbub, which made several the price of the currency for the second time in the week and making it go from 74 cents to 49 cents in just minutes, as reported by the CoinDesk portal.

While the SpaceX founder has no significant dogecoin holdings, he has been known to constantly talk about dogecoin on Twitter, often causing its value to rise.

Dogecoin emerged as a joke seven years ago, when Jackson Palmer, an Australian trader, made a meme combining a cryptocurrency with the doge meme. Now dogecoin has a market capitalization that exceeds $ 17 billion.

During the program, SNL actors wondered why the billionaire would have wanted to accompany them on set and in a segment about the Chinese rocket re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere at the same time the show aired , they concluded that the space businessman “needed an alibi ”.
