Elon Musk could face legal action over 'pedo' comment

A British diver who played a key role in the rescue of 12 children trapped in a cave in Northern Thailand is considering legal action after Elon Musk called him a 'pedo' on Twitter.

Vernon Unsworth told The Guardian he was "astonished and very angry" at the attack and said he may take the matter further.

Asked whether he would consider legal action, Unsworth said "yes, it's not finished".

Musk has since deleted the tweet.

The billionaire inventor initially posted the comments in response to an interview Unsworth gave saying the child-sized submarine that Musk delivered to the cave site had "absolutely no chance of working".
