I would like to take this time before SNL starts to tell you all how much Elon Musk sucks. He's literally going to make a shit ton of money off of hosting; not only is he being paid to do it, but its projected the stocks in Tesla and Dogecoin will go up massively- effectively making him even richer than he already is.
Speaking of Dogecoin, cryptocurrency is literally polluting the Earth at alarming rates. It may be trendy to have, but the servers running it are literally putting out millions of megatons in carbon dioxide. Not only is Elon Musk polluting the Earth, but space too.
He sent a sports car into space, and for what? Because he could? He created more space junk, something that's already a decently large problem, just to show off how much money and technology he has. Not to mention the 1,300 satellites he's put in orbit, some of which are already no longer operational, plus he plans to send more to create something called starlink. But it's doing more damage than good, the satellites will create light pollution, causing a massive hit to astronomy and astronomical images, while continuing to create more space junk as well as "traffic jams" in orbit because of how many he's sending up. He has literally enlisted the help of famed car designer to design RC cars to race on the moon, they'll be sent to space in October.
Not to mention how he runs Tesla. The working conditions in Tesla factories are reportedly horrible. He's extremely anti union, going as far as to illegally threaten to take away stock options if his employees did unionize.
Tesla doesn't pay taxes, and now that Elon, SpaceX headquarters, as well as Tesla headquarters are going to be in Texas, he will save millions in taxes each year because Texas has no state income tax. Elon Musk is the second richest man, he is worth 164.2 billion dollars, and he's cheating the system so he doesn't have to pay taxes. Oh! And let's not forget when he said another stimulus check was a bad idea in July of 2020, in the middle of a fucking pandemic, while he was making 4.9 billion dollars in government subsidies. He's a piece of shit.
Someone needs to stop him before he does irreversible damage to our planet. I get that he thinks this is just some simulated world and he's doing no real damage, but that simply isn't true. So fuck Elon Musk, and fuck whoever decided to feed into this vanity project and let him host. He isn't an actor, nor a comedian, nor a singer; he's a billionaire who's effectively killing our Earth and he gets rewarded by hosting a comedy show. This just goes to show that if you have enough money you can do anything you want. I'd say I hope the episode tanks, but that wouldn't be fair to the writers and cast members who put their hearts and souls into each sketch.
EDIT: Some sources I used
Environmental damage due to cryptocurrency, bitcoin specifically
Space pollution he's creating from all of his satellites
Evading income tax by moving to Texas (all of the billionaires move to states with no income tax 😒)
