Elon Musk reveals he has Asperger’s syndrome
Elon Musk announced in a TV show that he had been diagnosed with a mental disorder.
Tech billionaire Elon Musk announced while hosting the US comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live that he has Asperger’s syndrome.
“I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL or at least the first to admit it,” the Tesla CEO said during the opening monologue of the show.
This was reportedly the first time Musk has publicly spoken about having this mild form of autism.
What is Asperger’s?
People with Asperger’s often focus obsessively on a complex topic and have trouble with social relationships.
The disorder is named after German doctor Hans Asperger, who first described it in 1944.
It belongs to the autism spectrum, a family of conditions, which can severely inhibit a person’s mental and social development.
