Chris Redd Drags Elon Musk Before His SNL Debut! “Saturday Night Live” cast member Chris Redd threw some sly shade at big-headed Elon Musk Saturday as the Tesla CEO mused on Twitter about his upcoming debuthosting the program next weekend.
“Throwing out some skit ideas for SNL,” Musk tweeted. “What should I do?”
Redd fired back: “First I’d call Em sketches,” which is what they are.
Others on Twitter were a tad more vicious.
Musk probably needs all the help he can get for his appearance on “SNL” — especially since the comedy crew members don’t appear particularly thrilled about appearing with him next Saturday. That could leave the awkward but full-of-himself billionaire hung out to dry.
Bowen Yang and Aidy Bryant in particular already dropped a bit of snark on social media. After Musk tweeted, “Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is,” Yang snapped: “What the fuck does this even mean?”
Bryant merely posted on Instagram a quote by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) about the “moral obscenity” of the ultra rich.
Cast member Andrew Dismukes posted on Instagram: “Only CEO I want to do a sketch with is Cher-E Oteri,” over a photo of “SNL” alum Cheri Oteri.
“Weekend Update” co-anchor Michael Che quipped to Jimmy Fallon earlier this week that he hopes the billionaire will uphold the “SNL” tradition of hosts to give “a couple million dollars” to the cast members. Che did say, however, he was “excited” to meet Musk.
Cast members reportedly won’t be forced to appear with Musk if they don’t want to.
“Speaking historically, if a cast member has been that unhappy, they don’t have to do it,” a source told Page Six in the New York Post. “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels “won’t ever make them do anything they don’t want to do,” the source added.
The musical guest next Saturday is Miley Cyrus.
