Elon Musk Won't Back Down On Cave Diver 'Pedo' Remark

"I don't think a CEO should be on Twitter; I would have hoped that would have been the lesson". L. Lin Wood, a defamation lawyer based out of Georgia, tweeted a letter earlier Wednesday dated to August 6, 2018.

Some hours later, Unsworth's lawyer replied to the tweet with a picture of a letter sent to Musk informing him he would be sued for libel.

Musk later apologised for the tweets, but yesterday seemed to backtrack by tweeting: "You don't think it's unusual he hasn't sued me?"

Musk responded in a since-removed tweet: "We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo".

Elon Musk was apparently none too happy when British cave diver Vern Unsworth said the submarine Musk built - and shouted about to the world on Twitter and in the New York Times - was a "PR stunt" and that he should stick said sub "where it hurts".

In it, Wood says he is "in the process of preparing a civil complaint for libel" against Musk on Unsworth's behalf. "He was offered free legal services". Banks later brought receipts in the form of texts from Grimes, dishing everything from Musk's penis size to his newfound love of marijuana, and the two unfollowed each other on social media soon after.

Myanmar generals should be prosecuted for genocide, war crimes
Maung Maung, a military representative in Parliament, said the army doesn't have any comment on the United Nations report. They said the commander-in-chief and five generals should be prosecuted for orchestrating the gravest crimes under law.

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.

It's just the latest Twitter hubbub Musk has created.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission is now reported to be investigating the matter, and some Tesla investors are suing the firm over the tweets.

Musk posted the tweet in response to an article about the removal of accounts responsible for coordinated manipulation on Twitter, praising the micro-blogging platform's actions.

Reports that emerged after the tweet and a statement from Musk suggested that, at the time of the tweet, he did not have legally binding agreements in place that would provide enough funding to convert Tesla into a private company. Last week, Musk said Telsa would remain publicly-traded. Musk said in a tweet last week that he was no longer pursuing a plan to privatize Tesla.
