Musk says he made the remark in outrage, after British jumper Vern Unsworth said Musk was blameworthy of a "PR stunt" by conveying a scaled down submarine to Thailand to safeguard the soccer players and their mentor. Unsworth said the sub would have been futile in the save exertion.
That is when Musk went on Twitter and called him a "pedo."
Musk presently says, "My words were talked in outrage after Mr. Unsworth said a few lies ... In any case, his activities against me don't legitimize my activities against him, and for that I apologize to Mr. Unsworth and to the organizations I speak to as a pioneer. The blame is mine and mine alone." In spite of the fact that Musk erased the "pedo" tweet, Tesla stock fell 3% Monday, despite the fact that it more than recouped Tuesday. Unsworth had undermined legitimate activity. He hasn't reacted to Musk's conciliatory sentiment.
