Elon Musk sparks controversy again by reviving 'pedo' issue

Thai cave rescuer Elon Musk called 'pedo guy', prepares to sue for libel

"He can stick his submarine where it hurts", Unsworth told CNN, prompting Musk to take to Twitter and call Unsworth a "pedo guy", question his credentials and suggest it was suspicious that a British man would live in Thailand.

Mr Musk added: "He was offered free legal services".

In another extraordinary tweet, replying to another Twitter user, he said: "You don't think it's unusual Unsworth hasn't sued me?"

"I am in the process of preparing a civil complaint for libel against you", the note reads.

Musk then couldn't resist trading barbs with a follower who criticized him for calling a cave explorer in Thailand a pedophile back in July.

Simon Mignolet Has Reacted To 'Bizarre' Loris Karius' Departure
Speaking to Het Laatste Nieuws , he said: "I find it freakish that Karius was loaned while I also had options to be loaned". Meanwhile, Premier League club Liverpool announced Saturday that Karius joined Beşiktaş on a two-year loan deal.

"So you actually did nothing and yet imply you are a truth-seeker", wrote Mr Musk.

When Amy Nelson read The New York Times' recent interview with Tesla CEO Elon Musk - in which, The Times said, "he alternated between laughter and tears" in describing "the most hard and painful year of my career" - her first thought was, "I would never cry in front of a journalist as a female CEO".

While the rest of the world was celebrating the successful rescue, Mr Musk's offensive comments have cast a shadow over Mr Unsworth.

Musk sent a string of now-deleted tweets in which he said he was working on producing a video to prove his submarine could have reached the trapped football team.

They culminated in a post that described Mr Unsworth as a "pedo guy" and a follow-up saying "bet ya a signed dollar it's true".

White House flag no longer at half-staff after McCain's death
Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle were devastated by the loss Saturday, struggling to imagine Washington without him. Add John McCain as an interest to stay up to date on the latest John McCain news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Musk has since apologised for making the baseless claim, adding that he had said it out of anger.

Mr Musk, however, has denied his use of the app was a distraction.

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. (The implication here being Unsworth didn't lawyer up because he might have actually been the thing Musk unfoundedly proclaimed he was.) Except, it turns out, Unsworth's lawyer did get in touch with Musk.

"Conventional business leaders are far more careful in their behaviour - you don't find FTSE 100 chief executives shooting from the hip like this because they are advised it would be detrimental to the interests of their companies", Matthew Gwyther, ex-editor of Management Today, told the BBC.

Urban Meyer suspended 3 games, might have erased text messages
