Elon Musk brands Thai boys' rescuer Vern Unsworth a paedophile

Elon Musk brands Thai boys' rescuer Vern Unsworth a paedophile

In another tweet, Musk says he "never saw this British expat guy who lives in Thailand" and challenged the suggestion he was asked to leave the cave because his assistance wasn't necessary. No evidence has emerged to substantiate Musk's claim of paedophilia. Unsworth said the mini-sub was too long and rigid for the cave conditions and that Musk had "no conception" of what the cave passages were like.

Some advice for Elon that doesn't cost as much as a defamation suit: Log off, do not pass go, and do not send any more people back into that cave to prove your point. Unsworth said the billionaire "was asked to leave very quickly".

[Musk] can stick his submarine where it hurts.

Musk's proposal to rescue the team with a small submarine "just had absolutely no chance of working", said diver Vern Unsworth, who played a major role in the rescue.

Croatia Beat England To Enter World Cup Finals For The First Time
On the game itself, he added: 'The first half was really good, we could have had a second goal - we had the chances. But Croatia can surprise by continuing their winning streak.

When a Twitter user pointed out that Musk was "calling the guy who found the children a pedo", as The Guardian reported, the tech entrepreneur responded: "Bet ya a signed dollar it's true".

Unsworth could not immediately be reached.

Musk had gone to Thailand during rescue operations with his mini-submarine, and left it at the Tham Luang cave complex in case the rescue team needed it.

It would seem by the outrage, still pouring in hours after Musk's Twitter tantrum, that any good publicity Musk did get for his submersible, intended or otherwise, is all but lost now. Secondly, nearly everyone is in agreement that he went way overboard with the remark accusing Unsworth of being a pedophile just because he doesn't like what the man said, as can be seen in the replies to his tweet.

Wimbledon 2018 -- Novak Djokovic advances to men's final vs. Kevin Anderson
If you go in the first week of Wimbledon and see some of the matches that go five sets, I just don't think they are entertaining. Anderson‚ 32‚ is now in a race to be ready for the final against Novak Djokovic‚ who beat Rafael Nadal in the other semi-final.

One journalist, a senior correspondent for Vanity Fair, tweeted that he cancelled his Tesla order over Musk's donation. He declined to elaborate.

Mr Musk didn't take the criticism lying down and launched a furious attack on the experienced diver after responding to a piece in the New York Times which called his effort "commendable". That is my mistake. "I will correct it".

The head of the rescue operation, Narongsak Osottanakorn, stated that the machine was impractical for the obstacles they faced. Osatanakorn stepped down as Chiang Rai governor during the rescue, but was still acting as commander.
