Last week, “SNL” stars, including Bowen Yang, seemed to express upset over Musk’s hosting gig. After the Tesla CEO posted, “Let’s find out just how live ‘Saturday Night Live’ really is,” Yang responded, “What the f–k does this even mean.”
Aidy Bryant seemed to take a swipe at the SpaceX pioneer by tweeting a Bernie Sanders quote stating, “The 50 wealthiest people in America today own more wealth than the bottom half of our people.”
But when Page Six asked Musk, 49, how rehearsals were going in light of the hubbub and speculation, he told us exclusively that it was all “much ado about nothing.”
Perhaps Shakespeare in the Park is in his future?
When asked if everyone was being friendly and willing to work with him, the extremely concise mogul simply told us, “Yes.”
A source told Page Six last week that cast members who are upset with the choice of host do not have to appear in sketches with them.
“Speaking historically, if a cast member has been that unhappy, they don’t have to do it,” a source told us. “[‘SNL’ boss Lorne Michaels] won’t ever make them do anything they don’t want to do.”
Musk asked for “skit” ideas on Twitter this week throwing out ideas like “Woke James Bond,” “Baby Shark & Shark Tank merge to form Baby Shark Tank,” and “Irony Man – defeats villains using the power of irony.”
