Elon Musk’s Wish to be Sued – Granted?
Thailand Cave Rescuer Vernon Unsworth
This is a rather bit odd for a tiff between two adult men but here we go.
It seems that Elon Musk did not much care for Thailand Cave Rescuer, Vernon Unsworth’s comments with regards to a mini sub that Elon built in an effort to help with the Thailand cave rescue in July.
The buzz is that Vernon negatively criticized a mini sub that Elon had built which Elon took offense to.
Elon’s response to that was to accuse Vernon of being a pedophile.
He kept referring to Vernon as the “pedo guy” on Twitter of all places. To make matters worse it seems that Elon sent a rather odd tangent based email to Buzzfeed and Buzzfeed in turn actually released excerpts of the email that Elon sent.
At one fatal point Elon stated “I fucking hope he sues me.”
In it he continually accuses the cave diver of being a child rapist while providing no evidence to support the odd and unusual claim.
In the end, Vernon decided he was sick of it and gave Elon precisely what he wanted and is now suing him for around $75K and a court order that prevents Elon from making false accusations with regards to Vernon being a pedophile.
Vernon is a British citizen who was directly involved with saving a boys’ soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave they had become trapped in.
As Brilliant as Elon is, at times he like many brilliant individuals tend to go off on a senseless tangent that turns out to be rather regrettable in the end.
But hey $75k is just a drop in the bucket for a guy like Elon so I say he just agree to hand it over to Vernon and sing a legal document stating that he will never mention the man’s name again and walk away with some shred of pride and dignity.
