Thai Cave Rescuer Threatens to Sue Elon Musk Over ‘Pedo’ Remark

Thai Cave Rescuer Threatens to Sue Elon Musk Over ‘Pedo’ Remark

When asked if he would consider legal action against Mr Musk over the comments, he said, "yes, it's not finished".

Elon Musk, who regularly takes on journalists and other critics on Twitter, on Sunday tweeted a response to Mr Unsworth, without using his name but calling him a "British expat guy who lives in Thailand". Both tweets have since been deleted.

Musk later deleted the tweets. The statement has already lost Tesla a fan and potential business. "This goes over a line where he can't claim 'Well, my big sin is that I go too far in defending the company'". Musk's submarine was never used.

Musk was responding to an interview with Mr Unsworth where he said a child-sized submarine had "absolutely no chance of working".

He said of Musk that he can "stick his submarine where it hurts".

Kevin Holland, the managing director of the Solar Shed, a British renewable-energy installer, said his company would no longer promote Tesla products until Musk gives a "full & public apology...regarding his disgusting comments to a real hero". "I have made the mistaken assumption - and I will attempt to be better at this - of thinking that because somebody is on Twitter and is attacking me that it is open season".

Unsworth told AFP news that he will make a decision about whether to take legal action against Musk after flying back to the United Kingdom this week.

The star winger has been huge for his national side and guided them to the final against France in the grand tournament. Mourinho is a long-term admirer of Perisic, having tried to land the Inter midfielder previously.

In short: Elon Musk, u ok hun? He previously served as an economic adviser to controversial leader a year ago, before pulling out because of a difference in opinion on climate change - rather than, you know, Trump's overt racism.

Musk responded by lashing out at the media for the Trump comparisons, writing: "Why do you think he got elected in the first place?"

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.

At the same time, the Tesla CEO had also traveled to Thailand.

"You can't be doing yourself any favor minimally by creating this kind of a distraction, and at worst raising questions about your credibility", he said. In fact, most of the time I do say nothing. As one of the company's biggest investors said last week, Tesla needs to keep its head down and focus on performance. Tesla is worth more than $52 billion, largely on the promise of Musk's genius.

After Elon Musk branded one of the British divers who saved 12 boys a "pedo", the man has said he is considering legal action.
