Elon Musk calls the cave diver who insulted him a "pedo"

Elon Musk

Is just had absolutely no chance of working.

In an earlier interview with the channel, Unsworth said the submarine of Musk was 5 feet, 6 inches tall and was in no way possible to be sent inside the caves.

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

Musk fired back on Twitter over the weekend, taking his reply a step too far in calling Unsworth a pedophile, causing many on the social media platform to ask Musk to delete the tweet, which he later did.

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

First, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO claimed that he "never saw this British expat guy who lives in Thailand (sus)", with the "sus" potentially meaning "suspicious".

Last week, as the rescue effort was under way, Mr Musk hit out at the Thai official in charge of the mission's command centre, Narongsak Osotthanakorn, after he said the mini-sub was "not practical with our mission", though it was "technologically sophisticated".

"You know what, don't bother showing the (final rescue) video".

Unsworth was shocked by the allegations Musk laid against him, telling he was "astonished and very angry" at the attack.

What does Trump-Putin summit mean for US? With attempts to reset relations with Russian Federation by former presidents George W. Mr Trump cowardly dodged the question without denouncing Russian Federation , or even hinting that there was any misconduct.

Musk offered to assist the rescue mission by providing a submarine but the request was turned down on the ground that it would be unworkable.

Musk deleted his tweet thread on Sunday evening, but Unsworth has saved copies.

"You are literally such a douchebag to go after that cave diver like that", commented Instagram user alexapersian on one of Musk's Instagram posts.

Now, Unsworth plans to take legal action against the entrepreneur for that statement although he said today (July 16) that he had not reviewed the tweets and only heard about them, according to The Sun Daily.

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

Osatanakorn's comments weren't as damning as those from Vern Unsworth, who played a critical part in the mission.

The group is now recovering in hospital in Chiang Rai and is expected to be discharged this week.

All 12 boys and their coach were later rescued by divers without Mr Musk's help.

In response, Musk dismissed the credentials of Ostanakorn, who led the joint command center coordinating the operation and is former acting governor of Chiang Rai, the province where the cave is located.
