Diver Who Helped Thai Boys May Sue Elon Musk For 'Pedo' Comment

Elon Musk

The drama comes amid a crisis at Tesla, which has yet to prove that profitable, high-quality mass production of its Model 3 electric sedan is achievable.

Vernon Unsworth was part of a team of expert divers from all over the world who convened in Thailand last week to figure out a plan to rescue the 12 boys.

Since then, he has been arguing with people who accuse him of shoehorning himself into the drama and imagining hypotheticals in which rescuers had not deemed his hastily built submarine unnecessary and impractical. The British diver went on to say Musk "can stick his submarine where it hurts". At one point he even told CNN that Musk's idea "had absolutely no chance of working".

Elon Musk, co-founder and chief executive officer of Tesla Inc., speaks during a Boring Co. event in Los Angeles, California, U.S., on Thursday, May 17, 2018.

Unsworth has said he is considering legal action against Musk, while Tesla investors wasted no time in expressing their concerns about the CEO's erratic behavior Tesla's. The unfounded claim came after Unsworth called Musk's miniature sub a "PR stunt".

Rain sticks around in Central Georgia
Comfortable conditions are expected for Wednesday through Friday , with daytime highs expected in the low 80s. Those temperatures will be accompanied by mostly sunny skies and much lower humidity.

When asked about the comments on Monday, Mr Unsworth said he will now consider legal action.

If you're already acquainted with Musk and his freaky entanglement with the Thai cave story, you may skip to the end of this report for a fuller accounting of his baseless pedophilia accusations.

"Hopefully useful", he said in one tweet.

Musk made his "pedo guy" comment in a tweet to Zeynep Tufekci, a University of North Carolina professor who recently wrote a New York Times op-ed titled "What Elon Musk Should Learn From the Thailand Cave Rescue". "It was just a PR stunt". In the tweets he only referred to Unsworth as the "British expat guy who lives in Thailand". In an interview last week, Musk said he was reforming from his belief that Twitter was a no-holds-barred battleground where "if you attack me, it is therefore okay for me to attack back". Musk told his followers on Twitter that he was talking to cave experts about a "tiny, kid-size submarine" that he had created that "might be safe enough to try".

Musk later deleted the tweets and did not immediately respond to a request for comment through Tesla. But whatever. Musk has also been busy trying to undermine reports that he was one of the top 50 donors to a political action committee that aims to retain Republican control of the U.S. House after federal filings showed he donated $38,900.
