Elon Musk doubles down on ‘pedo’ claims against United Kingdom cave diver

Musk said that he had "spoken in anger" after Unsworth accused him and SpaceX engineers of orchestrating a "PR stunt" by sending a small submarine to help divers rescue the 12 Thai soccer players and their coach from a flooded cave.

Musk doubled down on the comments on Tuesday, tweeting, "You don't think it's odd he hasn't sued me? He was offered free legal services", Musk said after the Twitter user, Drew Olanoff, criticized Musk for the "pedo" tweet.

Bet he can expect that lawsuit this time.

He then asked Olanoff if he had investigated for himself in two separate tweets, before concluding that he hadn't.

At the time, Mr Unsworth told 9News he was considering legal action. "I think people realise what sort of guy [Musk] is".

In his tweets published on Tuesday, Musk appeared to suggest it was suspicious that he had not yet been sued and again called for his claim to be investigated.

Billionaire Elon Musk said on Twitter that he wanted Ethereum "even if it [was] a scam" on Tuesday - perhaps as a tongue-in-cheek response to the cryptocurrency scammers who frequent Musk's Twitter. "Have you actually done any research at all?"

Times Finance Editor David Enrich, meanwhile, said on the social media site that the paper stands by its description of Musk's emotions during the interview.

Musk's use of Twitter has caused a bit of an uproar as of late.

Musk responded in a since-removed tweet: "We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo".

He also said the submarine wouldn't have been able to navigate the complex tunnels of the Tham Luang cave complex, adding Mr Musk was not needed and was asked to leave.

The episode prompted the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to probe whether Musk and Tesla intentionally made misleading statements to influence markets, something that's prohibited by regulations.

Elon Musk is denying that he cried during a recent interview with The New York Times in which he described how he'd become overwhelmed by the stress of running electric vehicle company Tesla.

Nelson, the founder of Seattle female-focused co-working space The Riveter, knew that if she cried at work or in public while representing her company, she would face the criticism often lobbed at women when they cry: that they are weak, not a leader, can't keep it together.
