Elon Musk Calls Hero of Thai Cave Rescue a "Pedo"

Elon Musk Calls Hero of Thai Cave Rescue a

Last week, tech mogul Elon Musk announced on Twitter that he was dispatching engineers from his SpaceX and Boring Company teams to aid with the Thai government's mission to rescue 12 boys trapped in a cave in the country.

Unsworth was instrumental in the rescue of the boy's soccer team, but lambasted Musk's submarine plan in an interview published by CNN Friday.

Some users reported Musk's comments to Twitter, one saying he "shouldn't be allowed to use Twitter to unleash [his] followers on people like this".

Vernon Unsworth, who led the operation to save the boys stuck in the cave, accused the SpaceX boss of launching a "PR stunt" that never had a chance of working. The British diver went on to say Musk "can stick his submarine where it hurts".

The mockery was fueled, in part, by reports that top rescue officials had considered Musk's submarine impractical for the cave's tight-winding passages. "It wouldn't have made the first fifty metres into the cave... just a PR stunt".

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

Nadal unhappy over roof closure during loss to Djokovic
Novak Djokovic cruised to victory over Kevin Anderson in the 2018 Wimbledon Championships men's final. Djokovic wasted another three break points in the eighth game of the decider.

The billionaire attracted controversy for his approach to the Thai rescue after Narongsak Osatanakorn, head of the joint command centre, said the mini-submarine would not have been practical. "Thai navy seals escorted us in - total opposite of wanting us to leave", Musk wrote.

"You know what, don't bother showing the video", Musk wrote. Musk called the fact that Unsworth retired to Thailand "sus", or suspicious, before ending with, "Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it".

"Just returned from Cave 3". The "Wild Boars" football team and the coach had been stuck in the cave since June 23.

Update, July 15th, 2018, at 5:30pm ET: Musk has apparently deleted the tweets after they resulted in widespread media coverage (as well as anger and mockery).

"Mini-sub is ready if needed". He was the one who helped pinpoint exactly where the boys were within the cave complex.

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