Elon Musk makes unfounded claim about diver who criticized his submarine

Furious liberals meltdown sell Teslas after Elon Musk’s significant Republican donation uncovered

Mr Musk responded yesterday in a weird series of tweets referring to Mr Unsworth without using his name as "pedo guy".

Believing the sub he built would have been able to get the trapped children out of the cage, Musk wrote, "I challenge this dude to show final rescue video".

In an interview with CNN, Vern Unsworth basically told Musk to shove his submarine up his arse. Secondly, nearly everyone is in agreement that he went way overboard with the remark accusing Unsworth of being a pedophile just because he doesn't like what the man said, as can be seen in the replies to his tweet. "He had no conception of what the cave passage was like" Mr Unsworth told CNN last week.

'You know what, don't bother showing the video. Highlighting the dangers, a former Thai navy SEAL volunteering to work on the rescue effort died Friday while replenishing oxygen canisters that were placed along the escape route. The submarine was reportedly 5 feet and 6 inches long, small enough to carry one of the boys but likely rigid and obtuse in the tight, murky dimensions of the cave network.

But responding to a New York Times piece about what Musk should learn from the Thai rescue, the billionaire unloaded on the British diver.

Musk then shipped the submarine out to Thailand, commenting that it was ready to be used if and when it was needed.

But Greg van Avermaet of Belgium held onto the race lead after finishing in the group of favourites, chasing Martin to the line. The overall favorites should be tested again in Roubaix, before heading down to the Alps next week.

In this case, the criticism came from a British cave diving expert who said he wasn't too impressed with Musk's plan to rescue the Thai soccer team trapped in a cave system in Chiang Rai. "It wouldn't have made the first 50 meters into the cave from the dive start point".

But now Mr Musk has taken to Twitter in a rant against the experienced diver, adding he "never saw him in the cave". Musk, for no reason whatsoever, called Unsworth a "pedo". "It was just a PR stunt".

He had had not contact with Musk throughout the rescue operation nor since - a situation he hopes will not change. The tweet was later deleted.

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).

There is no indication that Musk's statement is true, and he provided no justification or proof to back up his claim.
