While Elon Musk spent his evening on Twitter (again) complaining about short sellers...
Bravo, right thing to do! Short selling should be illegal.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 3, 2019
...we are reminded that it was his use of Twitter when talking about British cave diving hero Vern Unsworth that will be leading Musk into the courtroom this morning, as he heads to trial for allegedly defaming Unsworth when he referred to him as "pedo guy".
Unsworth helped play a key role in saving 12 boys and their soccer coach who were trapped in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Thailand in July 2018.
Musk had proposed his own solution for the rescue, embarking on a boastful public quest to construct a device that could help rescue the trapped children. But, ultimately, the rescue was done by actual professionals and without the help of Musk.
In a post-rescue interview with CNN, Unsworth laughed off Musk's proposed solution and told the billionaire he could "stick it where it hurts", disregarding Musk's effort as a "PR stunt".
