SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — Elon Musk revealed that he has Asperger’s while hosting “Saturday Night Live”.

Musk said he was the first SNL host with Asperger Syndrome, a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication.

It is a condition on the autism spectrum, with generally higher functioning.

“I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL,” he said. “Or at least the first to admit it.”

The tech billionaire brought his mom, Maye Musk, on stage with him for a moment ahead of Mother’s Day.
