We're leaving this up as it resulted in lots of discussion, but we would normally remove this post as it's low-effort and the photo is only tangentially related to SNL.

Surprised this is the only comment to this effect...


hesokayiguess

Same I was checking to see if anybody else knew her


musicaldigger

it's literally the **point** of the post


Curious_Rugburn

Nah, she’s clearly sweating in this picture and she doesn’t sweat.


Ian-FTW

Exactly! Besides, that couldn't be Maxwell, she was at a Pizza Express in Woking that day


Crohnies

That was my immediate reaction and was looking for this comment. I'm surprised it took so long to find it!


CollegeAssDiscoDorm

It's pronounced "Jizz Lane" FYI.


notcoolcoolcool

thank you, I will never pronounce it any other way


Moosedroolz

Couldn’t they get somebody better like Bob Odenkirk with Nobody in theatre’s and was a SNL writer in the late 80’s


PurpleSquare

>Bob Odenkirk I need this.


Sp_Gamer_Live

Dude WROTE FOR SNL, Come ON


Sregor71

With co-host David Cross. 🙂


CollegeAssDiscoDorm

hell yeah, sketch comedy legend


el_sattar

I didn't know I need this, but I really need this.


Sp_Gamer_Live

Tom Hiddleston has Loki coming out! Riz Ahmed made history at the Oscars! MILEY CAN ACT!


tastysugar

Would 10000% prefer Miley be host + musical guest.


CarlMarcks

She really is great.


throw-away-212

I really want to see Hiddleston host!!


sjfiuauqadfj

id love for riz to host but unless he wins big it would be kinda late considering that the oscars is tomorrow


XOSkyXO

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan have a new show


mmayor114

I'd kill for Bob Odenkirk to host, but unfortunately he is in the middle of filming the last season of Better Call Saul right now. Hopefully next season he can host to promote the airing of the final season.


highdesertfriends

Nobody was so good. I get that Elon got some people to space, but I’ve seen Odenkirks comedic timing and it’s great.


lgodsey

I hate action movies and I loved Nobody. Bob would be an amazing guest.


LoveLeahNotWar

Really?? Okay I’ll watch it then! That will make the husband happy


MoshPotato

Nobody was amazing.


LoveLeahNotWar

Omg yes!! Musk is so stiff and strange but not in a good way


[deleted]

It would be all worth it if Michael Che made a joke about his parents owning an apartheid slave labor emerald mine


comics0026

Oh that would be good, WU has been the highlight of SNL lately for me


hovdeisfunny

I think weekend update has always been one of the show's best segments


FroadwicK

Weekend Update is the only segment I watch anymore.


jjaminben

Cold open and Weekend Update for me


finley87

I felt that way when Tina and Amy were on it too.


manys

I"m not sure Lorne has that...kind...of sense of humor.


Dice101man

And you put him with Miley Cyrus, someone that has proven she can handle both host and musical guest roles and be great.


sjfiuauqadfj

honestly sounds like miley is the backup plan to do double duty in case the backlash gets too hot against musk or if musk pulls out last minute


RickPerrysCum

Saving this for three weeks from now when you're right. It makes sense that they'd specifically have Miley for a case like this.


sjfiuauqadfj

thank you for saving my comment, rick perrys cum

No it comes from Rick Perry's forceful ejaculation

Person_Impersonator

Justine Musk - 1st wife 5 sons: Griffin, Xavier, Damian, Saxon, and Kai. Divorced in 2008, and [she dishes some dirt on him in this article.](https://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/a5380/millionaire-starter-wife/) Talulah Riley - 2nd wife Married in 2010, divorced in 2012, remarried in 2013, re-divorced in 2016. No kids. Grimes - non-wife child-having partner 6th child, X Æ A-Xii, born in 2020


[deleted]

>\[Elon\] texted me to say he was engaged to a gorgeous British actress in her early 20s who had moved to Los Angeles to be with him. Her name is Talulah Riley, and she played one of the sisters in 2005's *Pride and Prejudice*. Two of the things that struck me were: a) *Pride and Prejudice* is a really good movie, and b) My life with this man had devolved to a cliché. I have to say she has a great sense of humor, maybe Lorne should give her a call instead.


finley87

For real, what a fucking bad ass! Tangent but Mackenzie Scott (Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife) recently married a science teacher that taught at her kids’ private school. It’s so wholesome and cute...https://www.google.com/amp/s/people.com/human-interest/what-to-know-about-mackenzie-scotts-new-husband-teacher-dan-jewett/%3famp=true


astronautjones

He had six sons with his first wife. The first son died of SIDS as an infant.


MySockHurts

> Married in 2010, divorced in 2012, remarried in 2013, re-divorced in 2016. If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again to fail more.


AmmarAnwar1996

This article was a great read. I hate him even more now


bwleung89

For a brief second I thought it was publicly known Musk fucked 9 kids


Kinoblau

Could be, look at who he's friends with.


flovell3

According to Wiki it's 7 - but I lol'd which is worth an upvote


[deleted]

Let's hope. I've never cared for Miley but she did a great job last time and the songs she played were pretty good.


beepbeepstreet

we'll probably get like the weirdest possible version of the thing that happens sometimes where the musical guest is basically an uncredited cohost.


finley87

Don’t like her style of music but she’s someone who is insanely talented in that respect. She also strikes me as utterly authentic, which is always nice.


rebeccaloops

If he actually does host I hope Miley gets hella political in her act and calls him out.


steph-was-here

one of the writers for rick & morty @'d her on twitter saying she'd pay miley to call elon a cunt on air lmao


Ch_IV_TheGoodYears

Wait is Elon really hosting? Oh my god get ready for the most awkward episode of SNL youve ever fucking seen!!


BamaLover4life

Steven Seagal ring a bell anyone. Or how about, Paris Hilton, Justin Bieber, Milton Berle, Frank Zappa, Nancy Kerrigan and of course Donald Trump


TheRealMacPhisto

Zappa's music performances were pretty good at least. If he was just the musical guest and not the host it would have been great.


BamaLover4life

Yeah that would have been the better choice.


Kaylamarie92

I’m not the kind of person to defend Bieber and I don’t remember actually watching the episode but I do remember the one sketch with Tina Fey where she was his teacher who had a crush on him and it was kind of funny. At least in retrospect it was.


[deleted]

Omg dude Wayne Gretzky


karaokeoverkill

Or Deion Sanders.


modsarefailures

Jokes on you (Lorne.) I won’t see it. I can take one Saturday off.


11upand1over

I feel the same way, skipping this one. I even watched the fucking trump episode (regrettably so in hindsight).


comics0026

It was so bad, and the worst part was that some people thought it made him look presidential


cloudsandlightning

I’m gonna watch WU and that’s it.


burtalert

Wow, this is really refreshing to see a subreddit that doesn’t just blindly worship this guy


[deleted]

He sucks so hard, I think people are starting to see that. Especially with his death tunnels and cars that decapitate people


proudbakunkinman

Reddit has all kinds of people on it but I think the biggest demographic especially by time on it is teen to 40s very online middle class dudes. Hence why there are memestocks and cryptocoin posts on the front page every day with 50k upvotes, 95% upvoted. Plus gaming, memes, sports, mma, video clips of people fighting, etc. Not surprising a high percent of those in that demographic worship him since he repeats their memes and hypes up their memestocks, coins, etc.


breachofcontract

I hope this sub doesn’t worship anyone. No one is absorb scrutiny. Lorne is proving that himfuckingself.


TheSavageBallet

Is he even known for being funny or something? This is so out of nowhere.


Sp_Gamer_Live

He likes memes but he’s also a thin skinned baby


[deleted]

Amongst many more terrible things, he’s also noted for stealing memes and not crediting comedians.


Rob_T_Firefly

[He steals memes.](https://www.sfgate.com/tech/article/2021-04-elon-musk-twitter-covid-19-meme-tesla-ceo-16118139.php)


ehsteve23

Well that’s the bottom of a very long list of reasons not to like him


TheSavageBallet

Oh this is going to be a shitshow


TeTrodoToxin4

He also accused an engineer for being a pedophile for saving children faster than him.


roqueofspades

His memes are shit and reek of a boomer trying and failing to understand zoomer or even millennial memes


BigToeBePoppin

I had to read that twice to realize you didn’t mean that literally


zzp49

They did a Simpsons episode starring him a few years ago and it was bad even for modern simpsons standards


Crisis_Redditor

His monotone voice worked well for the South Park episodes he did, I thought. But I cannot imagine him doing a monologue, let alone skits.


zzp49

Yeah they utilized him well in South Park by bot really having him do a whole lot


Missy_Elliott_Smith

Same thing in Rick & Morty. Didn't do much, the main joke was the fact that he was even there. This episode is going to blow on a Trump scale.


comics0026

I think the fact that it was an alternate musk that made his introduction by giving a "self-aware" speech basically saying how our musk has a serious lack of empathy really helped make him the butt of the joke, something I bet musk still doesn't get


CoolBeansMan9

Okay that’s really saying something


HarvestMoonMaria

It was a super bad one for sure. I honestly think I’ve never rewatched it


[deleted]

No and it’s worse because he has no charisma.


Beatle_Matt

...and no personality.


Sp_Gamer_Live

oh he has a personality Its just that personality sucks


Ki-Gon

He tweets memes and stuff! He's totally a comedian ready to host! Hard /s


prefix_postfix

But he smoked weed with Joe Rogan and that makes him a hero! ...somehow.


[deleted]

While drug testing employees ffs


Imrustyokay

and denying them a union


[deleted]

If by "funny" you mean "can drive an otherwise good episode of rick and morty to a screeching halt" then yes.


Shagrrotten

To be fair, that’s by far the worst episode of Rick and Morty with or without Elon Tusk.


MyUsernameIsJudge

He tries hard (way too hard) on Twitter but when he’s on stage live he’s incredibly awkward and stilted


scratchedrecord_

He has the sense of humor of an edgy 14-year-old boy.


mountainislandlake

I’m just gonna skip this episode and catch up on my murder/cult shows instead.


atelierjoh

Don’t forget baking shows! Edit: what? I like baking shows. Edit 2: screw you guys. I’m eating all of them.


[deleted]

I identified so much with that part of the song. I watch all the murder, cult, and baking shows.


[deleted]

any recommendations?


coreyhemp

The Serpent is the best thing I e seen in a while


somehowstuck

I second this recommendation. Great show


thebestdaysofmyflerm

Murder Among the Mormons on Netflix is great


TexasDD

It’s not technically a murder show. But I enjoyed the hell out of “This Is A Robbery”. On St. Patrick’s Day 1990, about $500 million in art was stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. None of it has been recovered yet. There’s still a $10 million reward for it. Possibly Westies. Possibly La Cosa Nostra. It’s a great story.


Amonette2012

Ooo which murder/ cult shows? I need new tv.


VodkaAunt

Murder Among the Mormons is super interesting so far


Rattivarius

If you're up for a read, Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer is excellent.


Amonette2012

Damn, good title!


writergirl1980

I have not seen this one - what channel please?


SheToldMe

Netflix! I literally just finished it about 10 minutes ago.


[deleted]

Queen of the South, if you don't mind cartel murders. Also I fell in love with Alice Braga hnnnng


frozenelf

Elon Musk is already a cult leader


lizzieloohoo

This is so stupid. He’s not an actor. Miley would be better.


CollinABullock

Well, this is all news to me. In terms of things he could be doing that Saturday evening, I suppose hosting a comedy show is one of the less destructive ways to kill time.


sjfiuauqadfj

it will be a trainwreck but at least it will be our trainwreck


nlpnt

Musk is hosting!?! He makes me glad the natural-born-citizen clause of Article II exists.


zzp49

I heard they're getting Mike Lindell to host the season finale


wwabc

who was the last spoiled rich baby they had host? how did that work out?


JERICHOSBELLYBUTTON

Who was it tho I can’t remember Edit: Oh right, Trump. The ultimate spoiled rich baby.


sofuckinggreat

It was Trump and his episode suuuuuucked


JERICHOSBELLYBUTTON

Yeah, they even had him do the Hotline Bling dance it was pretty cringe


comics0026

And it was even his second time hosting


GlenCocosCandyCane

Hey, at least Elon Musk won't ever be president.


IshyMoose

I would have said the same thing about Donald Trump in 2012...


brucejoel99

I think what /u/GlenCocosCandyCane was getting at is that because Elon Musk is only a naturalized American citizen, he's therefore not eligible to run for (let alone be) President, as only natural-born citizens are eligible to do so, meaning that - unlike in the case of Donald Trump - he'll quite literally never be President.


IshyMoose

Oh thank god.


Oostburgalur

..of the US. Mars maybe


CashMcClane

I fucking hate that he’s hosting when they’re so many other good options people have already mentioned here (including just Cyrus as both host and musical guest).


mysticsavage

This feels like a Steven Segal redux imminent.


comics0026

If you get people to tune in, it doesn't matter if you're showing them a train wreck Although Idk if it'll be Segal awful, it will probably just be Trump's 2nd-time terrible


vagina_candle

More like the Steve Forbes episode really, except the musical guest won't be kicked out for "insulting" the host or whatever.


KyleG

Yeah this is gonna be a disaster. High likelihood he decides the jokes aren't good enough and bails at the last second.


EbmocwenHsimah

Fucking *please*. We know Miley can carry an episode on her own, just give it to her.


KyleG

Miley doing his monologue and then all the sketches written for him would be hilarious Like my dream scenario is the host fakes a broken leg during the monologue and the whole show is sketches showcasing physical comedy and so they're written to be this whole disaster of a show that falls apart This is the closest I imagine the show would ever come to that.


Sp_Gamer_Live

I hope he does! Lorne deserves it


KyleG

You know about Louise Lasser? She was hosting back in the 70s. She locked herself in her dressing room the night of and basically didn't perform. Partway through the show they finally convinced her to come on and she did one sketch.


1975hh3

Fuck this billionaire, covid belittling piece of shit.


foxmcdonald

Who is next to him in the photo?


Sp_Gamer_Live

Ghislaine Maxwell, Child Trafficker


musicaldigger

a disgusting disappointment


lgodsey

I'll pass on that episode, thanks.


unqualifiedking

So annoyed they're doing this


PepeSylvia11

They're doing it to garner outrage press. Same thing with Trump. Sickening.


turkeypants

Or just press in general. It's a big get of a very buzzworthy name. It means ratings, period, because people are curious. They out here selling ads and this will work well whether it crinkles our noses or not.


laszlo

Fucking gross. He's a terrible person. I wonder if his contract states they aren't allowed to make any jokes about the fact his family owned an emerald mine that used slave labor. That he isn't a "self made" guy at all. That he exploits his workers so much people at SpaceX call it SlaveX. That he rips off taxpayers, that he knows nothing about engineering and just takes credit for whatever he wants to buy. Or that he regularly puts statements out about crypto in order to raise the value that would be insanely illegal with any other valued trade. That he spread COVID misinfo. That he's generally a spoiled, sociopathic narcissist. Plus he's incredibly thin skinned. I'm incredibly disappointed in Lorne right now. A whiny abusive asshole who is the second richest person in the world does not need more of a platform. Did we learn *nothing*!?


cogginsmatt

I’m sure they won’t make any jokes at his expense. Look at how much he hates The Onion for occasionally taking a swipe at him.


al_m1101

I still refer to him as "Ol' Muskie."


harrier1215

Super disappointing. It will be a shit episode and they’re just doing more to prop up a guy whose not a very good person.


maskedbanditoftruth

He told people not to get vaccinated. He’s way worse than not a very good person.


[deleted]

I for sure like to watch billionaires cross shit off their bucket list while i shovel shit in poverty


Jedibri81

His appearance on the Simpsons was awful


coldliketherockies

That was a bad episode


guestpass127

A bad episode of the Simpsons from the last 20 years?! The hell you say!


lavardera

pass


Johnnn05

Yikes. You would think they learned from Trump. I remember watching that Oval Office sketch with Ivanka and wanting to puke. Stop doing this shit.


comics0026

The problem is, [dumpster gave them big ratings](https://ew.com/article/2015/11/08/donald-trump-snl-ratings/), so I imagine Lorne has no reservations about making an episode that will suck hard if people tune in


BelgianBond

I take people's point about any publicity being good publicity, but if there ever was a situation where that doesn't fit it's here. The audience is filled with front line workers right now is it not? Musk defied the stay at home order for his Tesla plant last year and made everyone return to work. He also tried to make out that the coronavirus pandemic was mainly hyperbolic media coverage, and that the threat was exaggerated and would be over in no time. Do Michaels and NBC really expect these key members of the pandemic response to sit and applaud this guy?


finley87

Recently read about how some of the cast feels guilty that they shared a national stage with Trump before his 2017 election bid...For that reason, my mind immediately jumped to “Groan I hope Elon isn’t running for President”. And then I happily remembered that the little punk was born and raised in er, idyllic-for-white-millionaires Apartheid South Africa, where he developed an appetite for contempt and entitlement.


Cynthiaimprov

I am so very disappointed. Lorne is showing his age and lack of relevance. We never wanted any more narcissistic billionaires on our favorite show.


Rleduc129

Has Lorne lost it or is NBC wanting ratings?


Notpoligenova

I have never seen this many people upset about an SNL host choice since Trump. This is going to be an interesting live show.


Snoo-8506

I'd like a joke about the Maxwell/Musk connection but NBC/Lorne would shoot that dead.


ThatOneReddetUser

I used to love this guy, but even if i still loved him i would be baffled by this decision. Hes not really someone who can do sketch comedy. Closest thing he has done is that terrible simpsons episode


breachofcontract

The musical guests have been kind of head scratchers but this is just fucking stupid. This blood emerald king adds fucking nothing to the show. I can’t imagine being a writer in the room with him. I’m seriously just fucking confused.


fhatl

Lorne is a dickhead. He has more in common with musk than anyone that posts here.


Nemesinthe

At least make him join the Guy Who Just Bought A Boat...as himself.


novemberqueen32

when is kenan replacing lorne....sooner the better


ncphoto919

Trash hosting choice.


guymacguffin

Fuck Elon Musk


tipsygrape

I am disgusted this dude is hosting. I wonder how much he paid. I hope some of the cast members cast mad undercover shade.


CrazyJoeDav0la

Judy Gold tweeted that Carol Burnett has never been asked to host, a thought that just makes this even sadder.


EntireLychee833

I honestly thought this was an April Fool’s joke. Then I remembered it was the 24th.


BamaLover4life

I'm gonna watch the show, but if it suck ass, after weekend update, i am done.


tenkittens

Is Elon Musk hosting May 9?


brucejoel99

May 8th.


lucidlotus

Just gross. 🤢


skyerippa

Why would they do this? Why would Elon even want to do this?


aprotos12

Elon Musk who accused the British diver who helped save the kids in Thailand that were trapped in cave, a pedo. Then doubled-down on it. That is the guy who is hosting. Will NOT be watching this a-hole.


JayNotAtAll

I predict some kind of weed sketch with Pete Davidson


Playamonkey

Disgusting!


coreanavenger

I wonder if he bought his way on


shoulderroll2010

Lorne Michaels can't help himself. You are out of your gourd if you don't think he will give Trump a call to host within the next five years.


BamaLover4life

They did not learn anything from Trump, didn't they.


CoolBeansMan9

Going to be a bruuuuutal episode


william1Bastard

It's just another symptom of how hopelessly lost this show is, and has been for years.


[deleted]

I for one cannot wait for this. It’s going to be the most awkward shit show ever and I’m all in for it. What the fuck were they thinking letting him host?


Rleduc129
