“Saturday Night Live” cast members won’t be forced to appear alongside controversial billionaire Elon Musk when he hosts the show, Page Six is told.
“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.”
The Tesla founder, 49, is set to helm the NBC institution on May 8 — but some cast members have made it clear that they’re less than enthused by the prospect of having him on stage at Studio 8H.
After Musk tweeted, “Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is,” cast member Bowen Yang wrote: “What the f–k does this even mean?”
Meanwhile, writer 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.
Longtime cast member Aidy Bryant shared a message that many perceived to be a dig at Musk too. The “Shrill” star, 33, reposted a tweet by Sen. Bernie Sanders that called it a “moral obscenity” that “the 50 wealthiest people in America today own more wealth than the bottom half of our people.”
As for Michael Che, the “Weekend Update” host, 37, joked to Jimmy Fallon this week that he hopes the billionaire will uphold the “SNL” tradition of hosts giving “a couple million dollars” to each cast member.
Miley Cyrus has also been blasted for signing up to perform on Musk’s episode after some fans claimed online that he’s “destroying the planet” and doesn’t like women.
Musk will join the cast for rehearsals at 30 Rock beginning on Tuesday.

Poor SNL snowflakes.
Haven’t watched SNL in decades
Oh come on, he smokes weed, and you know he’s got some awesome icky. None of them are passing up a chance at that.
These weak little SNL twits sure think they’re important.
Elon isn’t anymore a controversial figure than Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Bezos or ANY Hollyweird/RockNRapp billion/millionaire.
It’s just more Far Left Cancel Culture politics.
They’re just too afraid that they will lose their street credibility from the woke culture.
So many people are terrified of the militant left now, they don’t want to admit they’ve become sheep.
Will Musk wear a Mask? Dunno. Won’t be watching. He is interesting.
They hate anyone smarter and more productive than they are. Which is why they hate virtually the entire rest of the earth’s population.
Shove it up your collective Obamaholes, little low IQ shitzoids. SNL is soooooooo last century.
“the 50 wealthiest people in America today own more wealth than the bottom half of our people.”
Ok my friends. Do we stand up for the billionaires? Whether it’s honest earnings(or not) you all have to defend free enterprise. It’s the billionaires I don’t care for.
I don’t think I have ever watched an episode. I’ve been busy raising a family, repairing broken things, trying to hold on to a job, making money to feed the government. Maybe these corporate media overlords can enlighten me about how I should think, or how I should laugh. How will they know, anyway? I’m wearing the mask they require. Oh well... Back to work!
Elon Musk should tell them to go f*ck themselves then
But he practically single-handedly started the electric car revolution that is GREEN!
He should be a Liberal Saint!!
The tolerant left. As long as you think like they do. Otherwise they scream “REEEEEEEEEE!!!!!”
What do these little Communist agitators think is going to happen to them when the Revolution comes?
Rich people complaining about rich people.
The funny thing about communism: Once they run out of enemies…
…they never really run out of enemies.
so how did he get the gig if no one there likes him?? I don’t watch btw.
They hate him because Musk fought the law (Alameda County) and the Law.....oh wait, Musk won! He beat the sacred covid shutdown and has been blasting shutdowns and face diapers since.
