Elon Musks Calls British Cave Diver A 'Pedo' On Twitter

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.

Mr Unsworth has spent the best part of six years exploring the caves, and his intimate knowledge proved vital in the rescue effort.

But British caver Vernon Unsworth told CNN that Musk "can stick his submarine where it hurts".

"This reaction has shaken my opinion of many people", he added, in reply to a user who defended him. He wrote that he was escorted into the cave by Thai Navy SEALS - "total opposite of wanting us to leave".

"It had absolutely no chance of working". If not true, then I challenge this dude to show final rescue video. "We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo". But that wasn't enough, he then called Unsworth, "Pedo guy", and that is where he might be getting himself in serious trouble.

He also responded to one critic who had called the submarine idea "absurd" a week earlier, writing: "Stay tuned jackass". Thai officials involved in the rescue agreed with him as reported by The Independent.

Croatia - World Cup - 15 July 2018
Under FIFA's strict colour-clashing policy, Croatia would not be able to wear their black and navy blue even if they wanted to. Four pitch invaders disrupted the game in the 52nd minute for about a minute before being dragged away by security and police.

The boys and their coach entered the cave just seven days before it was due to be closed because of monsoon flooding.

An global team of cave-diving experts rescued the group of 12 teenage boys and their coach last week, after they had been stuck in the cave since June 23. "We designed the mini-sub to Stanton's specifications *and* brought a flexible rescue pod just in case".

Musk's Sunday tweets came in response to a New York Times opinion piece entitled "What Elon Musk Should Learn From the Thailand Cave Rescue".

Meanwhile the two Australians who helped in the global rescue of the Wild Boars soccer team were given diplomatic immunity in the event anything went wrong during the treacherous rescue.

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). "If it isn't needed, that would be great to know". "If the rain holds out it may well be used".
