Billionaire Elon Musk calls Thai rescuer a 'pedo'

  • Furious liberals meltdown sell Teslas after Elon Musk’s significant Republican donation uncovered

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tore into the British cave diving expert who helped rescue the 12 boys from a Thai cave earlier this month, calling the explorer a "pedo guy" in a tweet.

Unsworth, who lives in Thailand's Chiang Rai province, said that Musk was "asked to leave" the cave "very quickly", and that he "can stick his submarine where it hurts".

The caver, Vernon Unsworth, said the submarine was a "PR stunt" that wouldn't have made it 50 meters into the cave past the dive start point.

"Just a P.R. stunt". It's unclear why Musk saw fit to use such unhinged language in a dispute that had nothing to do with such subject matter.

This frame grab from video tweeted by Elon Musk shows a "tiny kid-sized submarine" being tested in a pool in Pacific Palisades, Calif., July 8, 2018.

In a separate Twitter thread over the weekend, Musk defended his almost $40,000 donation to PAC Protect The House, a political action committee that aims to preserve Republican control of the House of Representatives.

"You know what, don't bother showing the video". "We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo". Unsworth's knowledge of the Tham Luang cave, gleaned over what he says has been six years of exploration, helped locate the missing boys.


He was involved in the rescue for the whole 17 days.

The 13 were rescued by divers earlier this week after rising flood waters kept them trapped for almost three weeks in the Tham Luang Nang Non caves in northern Thailand.

Musk was quick to offer his help to the extensive team of worldwide diving experts.

"Just returned from Cave 3".

But the head of the rescue mission dismissed the option in favour of sticking with the plan for experienced cave divers to help the boys swim out. The team built a mini submarine dubbed "Wild Boar" (after the name of the team), which they believed could transport the boys to safety.

"Although his technology is good and sophisticated it's not practical for this mission", Mr Narongsak said.

Stanton replied: "It is absolutely worth continuing with the development of this system in as timely a manner as feasible".
