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

Thailand cave rescuer considers legal action against Elon Musk for 'pedo' comment

Elon Musk calls British diver who helped rescue Thai schoolboys "pedo guy" in Twitter outburst.

Musk hit back and baselessly referred to Unsworth as "pedo guy" - short for paedophile - in a heated series of tweets to his 22 million followers on Sunday, sparking threats of legal action from the diver.

Musk's posts on Twitter sparked backlash from shareholders and Silicon Valley analysts, who called his behavior immature and an impediment to the vehicle company's success.

Unsworth said Monday that he is considering legal action against Musk, telling a reporter for Australia's Nine network, "it's not finished".

"Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it", Musk wrote, clarifying in a follow-up tweet that he meant "the Brit expat diver" was a pedophile, according to The Washington Post. 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".

The tweets were later deleted.

Mr Chowdhry said that like other important innovators, Mr Musk has zero tolerance for any distractions from his goals, even if he lacks the public relations skills of most CEOs, and that within five to 10 years, Tesla's innovations will be more appreciated.

A number of them told Reuters, requesting anonymity, that the latest controversy is distracting Musk from Tesla's main business of producing electric cars.

The government's push came after it had secured control of most of the Daraa province in an offensive that began in June. AFP reported that hundreds of fighters and a few of their family members boarded around 15 buses which had then set off.

In the end, it was the team of divers who saved the children through a complicated rescue mission.

While investors following Tesla are a starkly polarized bunch, there's one thing they can probably all agree on: As the company struggles to profitably boost production of its Model 3 sedan, it needs as few distractions as possible. Earlier this month, Musk criticized the media for "negative" coverage of Tesla, and in May said he would create a site where people could rate the trustworthiness of an article and track journalists' "credibility score". When the press, along with people actually working on the mission, failed to take his cave rescue plan seriously, Musk felt oppressed.

Musk responded by saying Osatanakorn was "not the subject matter expert" and that he had been "inaccurately described as rescue chief" and should have been labeled the "former Thai provincial governor".

"Yes", Mr Unsworth said when asked if he would consider legal action.

He later doubled down on his comments, insisting to one critic that he'd bet "a signed dollar it was true", before deleting all the tweets about Unsworth.

Thailand-based Mr Unsworth's knowledge of the cave complex is said to have played a key role in the rescue effort.

James Anderson, one of the largest shareholders in Tesla, told the Guardian that he planned to convey his concerns to the company. "The challenge is that he would have to find assets of Musk's outside of the America".
