This take is pissing me off so Im going to just rant about it to get it out of my system.
Elon Musk's SNL bits weren't unfunny because he's autistic, they were unfunny because he's an out of touch conservative billionaire with a cult of personality who panders to online nerd communities who are obsessed with 4chan, cryptocurrency, and saying slurs as often as possible. Every time this man says a single thing it's incredibly clear he has no idea what life is like for the average person and has been spoonfed by others his entire life. He didn't start tesla, he bought it. He's more of a detriment to SpaceX than a positive. He's rich because mommy and daddy being racists in apartheid South Africa. He owns a fucking diamond mine. He calls literal heroes pedophiles for daring to criticize his stupid plans thatd kill innocents. His companies violate almost every OSHA standard (and thats just the shit in the USA) and his space company rains dangerous shit all over American cities.
People don't hate Elon Musk because he's autistic. People hate Elon Musk because he's a Captain Planet villain.
And, trying to level that disgust towards him as disgust towards autistic people is so extremely ableist. Elon Musk getting made fun of for being terrible at comedy and being an unrelatable billionaire is not the same as autistic people getting made fun of for not being able to communicate ideas.
Fuck all the way off.
