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

Billionaire Elon Musk lashed out at an English diver who helped rescue the Thai football team, calling him a "pedo", before eventually retracting his comments.

British diver Caver Vern Unsworth, who helped find the boys, told CNN that the submarine "just had absolutely no chance of working". "It wouldn't have made it the first 50 meters into the cave from the dive start point".

Musk was criticised by many, some of whom accused Musk of using his sizeable (22 million) Twitter following to incite ill will towards people, and others saying his comments were clearly libelous.

"He had no conception of what the cave passage was like", Unsworth said.
