Musk calls mini-sub rescue plan critic ‘pedo guy’ in Twitter tirade Musk calls mini-sub rescue plan critic ‘pedo guy’ in Twitter tirade

He elaborated that Musk "had no conception of what the cave passage was like".

The attack by Mr Musk, 47, came after the experienced cave diver rubbished the Telsa CEO's plans to use a miniature submarine to save the boys.

In response, Musk questioned Unsworth's involvement in the rescue, describing him as a "suss" (suspicious) "British expat guy who lives in Thailand".

"It just had absolutely no chance of working", Unsworth said in a widely shared interview.

Unsworth said when Musk arrived at the rescue site with the submarine in tow, he "was asked to leave very quickly", and also told CNN that Musk could "stick his submarine where it hurts".

In a series of tweets Sunday morning, Musk referred to Unsworth as a "pedo", requested video of the cave rescue, retracted that request, then promised proof that his submarine could have, in fact, performed the rescue. "It wouldn't have made the first fifty meters into the cave".

But now Mr Musk has taken to Twitter in a rant against the experienced diver, adding he "never saw him in the cave". On Sunday, Musk jumped on Twitter and called Unsworth a "pedo guy".

Amidst the horrorshow that is his Twitter account, it was revealed by public accountability organisation ProPublica that Musk donated $40,000 to a donated almost $40,000 to a conservative group focused on ensuring that Republicans control the House of Representatives - perhaps not great optics when you're trying to maintain a look as someone on the frontline of the battle against climate change.

In this undated photo released by Royal Thai Navy on Saturday, July 7, 2018, Thai rescue team members walk inside a cave where 12 boys and their soccer coach have been trapped since June 23, in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand. Lashing out and calling a guy who was actually part of the rescue operation in a measurable way a pedophile is probably not a great move! "We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo".

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

In his next tweet six minutes later, Musk replied, "don't bother showing the video" and promised to send his sub to the spot where the soccer team was trapped.
