Twitter Slams Elon Musk After He Calls Thai Rescue Diver a "Pedo"

He had said in an earlier interview with CNN that Musk's miniature escape pod "had absolutely no chance of working". They had no conception of what the cave passage was like...

"The submarine, I believe was about five, six feet long".

"He's just a PR stunt merchant - that's all he is", he said.

Musk responded on Sunday in a freaky series of tweets referring to Mr Unsworth without using his name as "pedo guy".

A British expat who helped with the rescue of 12 schoolboys trapped in a cave in Thailand is considering legal action against billionaire Elon Musk for a tweet apparently labelling him a paedophile.

Elon Musk belittled a British cave explorer as a pedophile after the man criticized Musk's effort to help in the rescue of a Thai soccer team as a publicity stunt. Engineers from SpaceX, Musk's rocket company, has been training members of the Thai Navy to use the mini-submarine.

A British diver involved in the Thai cave rescue mission has indicated he may sue Elon Musk over comments made by the billionaire. Musk has seemingly since deleted the posts, which saw him insist that he never saw Unsworth at the cave site, as well as saying the mini sub/pod could have gone all the way to Cave 5.

He added that Mr Musk was asked to leave "very quickly" when he arrived.

"Bet ya a signed dollar it's true", he wrote in another tweet that has since been removed.

Musk also faced criticism from followers over the weekend after reports revealed the CEO made substantial donations to a Republican political committee last month.

The war of words began after Vern Unsworth told CNN that he thought Musk's attempts to help out with the rescue of the youth soccer team represented nothing but a show for attention.

A British cave diver is considering taking legal action against Elon Musk after the USA entrepreneur called him a "paedo" on Twitter.

Asked by a Nine Network reporter if he was going to take legal action again Musk, Unsworth replied: "Yes, yes, it's not finished".

The caver, who lives part of the year in Thailand, said he would make a decision when he flies back to the United Kingdom this week - adding that the episode with Mr Musk "ain't finished".

A spokesman for Stanton later told The New York Times that the cave proved to be too narrow for the submarine.

"Only people in sight were the Thai navy/army guys, who were great".

"Just returned from Cave 3".

"I have a lot of support from people around the world astonished by his unfounded comments", Unsworth said, according to The Guardian.
