Elon Musk revives 'pedo' controversy in Twitter spat

Ironically, the letter surfaced after Musk himself wondered why Unsworth hadn't sued him, while discussing a separate story on Twitter.

Never one to turn his back on a potential Twitter fight, Musk fired back, making a thinking-face-emoji insinuation about why Unsworth never sued him, despite being offered free legal services. "According to a subsequent Twitter post, you did so out of anger".

"You don't think it's unusual [Unsworth] hasn't sued me?" "I also spent considerable time listening to current shareholders, large and small, to understand what they think would be in the best long-term interests of Tesla".

Mr Musk has been embroiled in another Twitter-related controversy over recent weeks after tweeting that he was considering taking his auto firm private, adding that he had secured the funds required.

While the rest of the world was celebrating the successful rescue, Mr Musk's offensive comments have cast a shadow over Mr Unsworth.

Billionaire Elon Musk said on Twitter that he wanted Ethereum "even if it [was] a scam" on Tuesday - perhaps as a tongue-in-cheek response to the cryptocurrency scammers who frequent Musk's Twitter. "If so, what did you actually do?" he said.

In an interview with CNN, Unsworth said: "He [Musk] had no conception of what the cave passage was like".

Musk sent a string of now-deleted tweets in which he said he was working on producing a video to prove his submarine could have reached the trapped football team.

Since then, the two men have been at loggerheads, with Musk calling Unsworth a "pedo guy" and now possibly facing a lawsuit for it.

In a letter addressed to Musk obtained by Business Insider, Wood says Musk made "false and defamatory statements" suggesting that Unsworth was a paedophile.

On Twitter on Tuesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk denied that he cried during a New York Times interview earlier this month.

Musk is known for being unusually candid on Twitter compared to other CEOs, but he has become increasingly combative on the site this year, lashing out at critics and reporters and spurring questions about his judgment when using the site. Last week, Musk said Telsa would remain publicly-traded. "And I'm sure the company's lawyers are telling him that".

He ended the exchange by suggesting that Olanoff was not a "truth-seeker" because he didn't investigate why Unsworth hadn't sued Musk.
