Elon Musk Revives Thailand Diver "Pedo" Controversy With New Tweets

Tesla may need to raise $2B to meet debt obligations

However, earlier this week, Musk appeared to double-down on his pedophilia themed attacks, tweeting, "You don't think it's odd [Unsworth] hasn't sued me? He was offered free legal services.' Unsworth's attorney called Musk's tweets 'false and defamatory" in the letter.

Elon Musk's freakish Twitter feud with a rescue diver in Thailand may soon land him in court.

Bet he can expect that lawsuit this time.

It's unclear if Musk read or reviewed the notice.

While the latest communiqués avoided any reference to the troubled auto company, his August 7 "funding secured" tweet indicating he had raised billions needed to take Tesla private at US$420 a share triggered the US Securities and Exchange Commission to intensify a pre-existing investigation into firm's public pronouncements on vehicle production forecasts and two class-action investor lawsuits.

News of the legal threat came less than 24 hours after Musk - whose effort to aid the rescue with a mini-submarine he'd built had "absolutely no chance of working," according to Unsworth - rekindled the feud out of the blue. "I think people realise what sort of guy [Musk] is".

Musk's representatives didn't immediately respond to requests for comment. The billionaire boss of Tesla has once again courted controversy on micro-blogging site Twitter by reviving his previous slander against one of the British divers involved in the famous Thailand cave rescue case.

Trump rejected statement praising McCain
In 2015, in the opening months of his presidential campaign, Trump mocked McCain's service in the Vietnam war and time as a POW. The American flags flying at the White House returned to full staff on Monday, less than 48 hours after the death of Sen.

Nelson wrote about her thoughts on the Musk profile in a contributor piece for Forbes, noting that she understood and applauded Musk for his authenticity.

Musk claimed his words were "spoken in anger" after Unsworth allegedly told him to "engage in a sexual act with the mini-sub".

"Your dedication to facts and truth would have been wonderful if applied to that time when you called someone a pedo", posted Drew Olanoff. A spokesperson for Tesla issued a statement to Reuters welcoming the Ontario judge's ruling.

Musk apologized for the earlier tweets and eventually took them down, but his Tuesday tweets are still up.

But everything was reignited on Tuesday, when ― after saying he totally, definitely, for sure didn't cry during a recent New York Times interview ― Musk further attacked Unsworth, suggesting it was true that he's a pedophile because he hadn't tried to sue.

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

"The biggest risk short-sellers pose to Elon and the stock price is putting information out there", said Paul Huettner, who works for a Chicago-based advisory firm and said he took out options betting against Tesla after it missed its Model 3 production targets past year.
