Diver is consulting lawyers over Elon Musk paedophile slur

Elon Musk renews 'pedo' controversy, asks if it's 'strange' the British diver hasn't sued

Mr Musk added: "He was offered free legal services".

The tweet comes more than a month after Mr Musk apologised to the British diving expert Vern Unsworth for calling him a "pedo".

In another extraordinary tweet, replying to another Twitter user, he said: "You don't think it's odd Unsworth hasn't sued me?" "And I'm sure the company's lawyers are telling him that". My son is in London on business at the moment but...

The 47-year-old's hostility towards Unsworth stems from the diver's comments he made about the billionaire's submarine, which he said "had absolutely no chance of working" in the rescue.

Unsworth called the submarine "a PR stunt" during an interview with CNN.

Bryan Robson: Manchester United shouldn't sack Jose Mourinho
Manchester United are in discussions with Anthony Martial's representatives over a new long-term contract. The club will say it's supporting Jose but we all saw what happened with Louis [van Gaal in 2016].

"I think sometimes people think I spend a lot of time in Twitter", he told the YouTuber Marques Brownlee earlier this month.

Earlier this month, he tweeted that he had secured funding to take Tesla private, before stating that he actually didn't secure the money, and then going on to say that the deal was in fact totally off the table.

Mr Musk has been embroiled in another Twitter-related controversy over recent weeks after tweeting that he was considering taking his auto firm private, adding that he had secured the funds required.

Unsworth said he has not ruling out taking legal action against Musk over the tweets. "In an attempt to avoid litigation and to see the public record corrected, I invite you or your legal representatives to contact me", Wood writes.

It's unclear if Musk read or reviewed the notice.

Pope ‘begs forgiveness’ as archbishop accuses him of ignoring abuse
The pope accepted the resignation of McCarrick, now 88, in July, making him just the second cardinal ever to lose his status. Despite repeated requests from journalists, the Vatican had not responded to the allegations by midday August 26.

The SEC already had been investigating whether Musk's vehicle production forecasts may have misled investors before the regulator started scrutinizing whether he had secured funding for a Tesla buyout, Bloomberg News reported on August 9.

But Musk's decision to continue to respond to critics on Twitter indicates he won't change easily, said Charles Elson, a University of DE finance professor who specializes in corporate governance. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO is known for his innovation, but it's hard to tell if he will embrace blockchain technology anytime soon.

Wood, Unsworth's attorney, said via email that his firm is "representing Mr. Unsworth pursuant to a written engagement agreement and are not providing services pro bono".

The tweet caused Tesla's share price to surge 11 per cent, hurting the short-selling investors whose return depends on the company losing value.
