Dogecoin took a dive during Elon Musk’s ‘SNL’ hosting gig



Dogecoin took a dive during Elon Musk's 'SNL' hosting gig

Elon Musk’s “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig did not send Dogecoin to the moon — instead, it slid by 21 percent during the broadcast, despite multiple mentions of the SpaceX founder’s favorite cryptocurrency.

The meme currency started the day at a high of $0.73, and sold off to $0.63 as SNL went live from NBC’s Studio 8H at 11:30 p.m., according to Coindesk’s price history.

After Musk mentioned the currency as a Mother’s Day present for his own mom, who was on hand during his monologue, the asset slid by six cents.

“I’m excited for my Mother’s Day gift,” Musk’s mother said. “I just hope it’s not Dogecoin.”

By 12:29 a.m., the currency plummeted to $0.50. before rebounding to $0.56 as the show went off the air, according to the site.

Musk also revealed to the audience he has Asperger’s syndrome during the opening speech.

The Tesla CEO also did a Q and A about the currency on the Weekend Update segment, which poked fun at the esoteric nature of coin.

A sketch at the end of the comedy show also poked fun at early currencies.

The day before the show, Musk warned investors to be careful when trading Dogecoin and other currencies.

“Cryptocurrency is promising, but please invest with caution!,” he tweeted.

Saturday’s volatility came after crypto CEO Barry Silbert took to Twitter to announce he was betting against Doge, which started as a joke.

“Okay $DOGE peeps, it’s been fun. Welcome to crypto! But the time has come for you to convert your DOGE to BTC, Silbert wrote.

UMass Amherst students suspended for partying outside without masks



UMass Amherst students suspended for partying outside without masks

Three Massachusetts college students were suspended after school administrators saw a photo of the trio at an off-campus party, outside and unmasked, according to reports.

“There was a photo sent to the administration of these girls outside off-campus on a Saturday. This is why they lost a whole semester of their schooling,” one parent told CBS’s Boston affiliate, WBZ-TV.

It’s unclear when the photo was taken and whether the young women had been vaccinated at the time they attended the party.

The freshman were cut off from virtual learning after being suspended and barred from taking their finals, meaning they will have to redo the semester, their parents griped.

“That negates this whole semester, $16,000 of money and they have to reapply for next semester. But they missed housing registration,” a father of one of the kids, identified only as Scott, told the station.

A surge of COVID-19 cases at the school in February prompted restrictions, but by April when the UMass hockey team won the national championship, athletes were seen celebrating, some without masks, as they arrived back on campus to a large crowd, according to a report.

The school said in a statement that students have gotten “a number of public health messages this semester that emphasized the importance of following public health protocols and the consequences for not complying, and those messages were also shared on UMass social media channels.”

The university did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Post.
