Elon Musk Won't Back Down On Cave Diver 'Pedo' Remark

Elon Musk renews 'pedo' controversy, asks if it's 'strange' the British diver hasn't sued

Elon Musk Doubles Down On 'Pedo' Comment Against Diver Vernon Unsworth Who Rescued Thai Football Team

Unfortunately, this week also saw Elon Musk getting baited once more on Twitter over his previous comments about British cave explorer Vernon Unsworth, who was critical of Musk's efforts to help a soccer team stranded in a flooded Thai cave system last July. Musk soon responded to this "You don't think it's odd he hasn't sued me?" Musk tweeted. "He was offered free legal services".

Buzzfeed News reports that Unsworth and his legal team are "preparing a civil complaint for libel" against Musk, who infamously referred to the diver as "pedo guy" after he dismissed the Tesla CEO's proposal to use a submarine to rescue the children as a "publicity stunt".

"And hey. sue you, he still might. or anyone else that you've whack-a-moled without thinking twice about", the user tweeted.

"He's not going to become a typical CEO, so the question is whether he's going to make statements that run afoul of securities laws", said Ken Bertsch, an executive director at the Council of Institutional Investors, a trade group that represents public pension funds that own Tesla shares.

Unsworth had criticised a mini-submarine that Musk had delivered for the rescue as impractical and said he could "stick [it] where it hurts".

Musk posted the tweet in response to an article about the removal of accounts responsible for coordinated manipulation on Twitter, praising the micro-blogging platform's actions.

The Tesla CEO was widely criticised last month for making the unfounded allegation against Vernon Unsworth, who was part of an global team that freed the young footballers and their adult coach from the Tham Luang cave complex in northern Thailand. "That day, Tesla's shares fell more than 3 percent, before Musk issued an apology a couple of days later, noting that "[Unsworth's] actions against me do not justify my actions against him". "Why?" Musk who is very vocal about his views on social media has often paid the price for it.

The spat between the two was ignited after Berlin-based motivational speaker Tijen Onaran tweeted an opinion piece about Musk crying in an interview with The New York Times.

"I think sometimes people think I spend a lot of time in Twitter", he told the YouTuber Marques Brownlee earlier this month.
