Elon Musk Calls Thailand Rescue Diver "Child Rapist" In New Attack

Mohave County Sheriff's Office search and rescue boats look for four people missing on the Colorado River north of Lake Havasu in Arizona Elon Musk Renews Attacks on British Diver, Calls Him a ‘Child Rapist’

Mr Musk had accused Mr Unsworth of being "a paedo" during the rescue of 12 schoolboys from the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex.

One exception to the feel-good vibe has been an ongoing feud between American tech entrepreneur Elon Musk and British caving expert Vernon Unsworth, whose advice and experience were considered crucial to the rescue operation.

Mr Unsworth's lawyer Mark Kennedy from the firm Howard Kennedy told the BBC that Mr Musk's allegations were baseless.

The alleged scheme started August 7, according to the complaint, when Musk tweeted: "Am considering taking Tesla private at $420".

'After deleting the initial accusation and tweeting an apology, Mr Musk has continued to republish his false and unsupportable accusation.

He said he had most recently met with the Saudis on July 31 and left that meeting "with no question that a deal with the... fund could be closed, and that it was just a matter of getting the process moving".

Yes, that is the CEO of the second most valuable automaker in America calling a reporter a f***ing a**hole, accusing him of "defending child rapists", and going into oddly specific yet entirely circumstantial detail about why he believes Unsworth is actually a pedophile. Musk hopes to be sued and Musk deserves to be sued.

He also claimed Mr Unsworth wasn't involved in the cave dive rescue and had been shunned by its members, adding he hoped Mr Unsworth would sue him.


The law firm of Labaton Sucharow said in a release that it filed a suit in U.S. federal court in San Francisco on behalf of short seller Andrew Left and that it is asking for class action status to represent anyone who bought or sold Tesla shares between August 7 and August 17.

Thousands of Thais will feast royally in the capital on Thursday to celebrate the rescue of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave, a dramatic and highly risky mission that gripped the world for more than two weeks. Reuters was unable to verify the emails reported in the BuzzFeed article.

He can "stick his submarine where it hurts", Unsworth said during the interview in Thailand.

On August 7, Musk surprised the investment world with a Twitter announcement that he was considering taking Tesla private and that the funds needed to do so - which some financial analysts estimate at more than $70 billion - were "secured". Last week, the British company announced plans to build a test track in southwest England for testing the electric vehicle it is now developing and planning to launch in 2021.

Musk later announced in a blog post that he chose to scrap the plan to go private.

"The tweeting fiasco", Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne wrote to clients, "is likely to draw investor scrutiny on whether Elon's behavior, management style, and operational ability are enough to take Tesla to the next level".

After falling 4.2% in trading Tuesday, shares of Tesla kept falling in after-hours trading and are set to open at $285 Wednesday, their lowest price since June 1.

"This past year has been the most hard and painful year of my career", he said during the interview.
