Elon Musk launched a stunning attack on a United Kingdom diver involved in the rescue of the Wild Boars, calling him a "pedo" on social media.
Unsworth had stated that he felt Musk's submersible had no chance of ever working for that specific rescue because it was too big and rigid for the caverns, and as can be seen at a column on the Inquisitr. He wrote that he was escorted into the cave by Thai Navy SEALS - "total opposite of wanting us to leave".
Vernon Unsworth, an explorer who is an expert in the cave, dismissed Musk's submarine was "a PR stunt" in an interview with CNN. "We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo", he wrote.
But it's a spat between another one of the rescuers and Space-X entrepreneur Elon Musk which is dominating headlines after Musk called British rescue diver Vern Unsworth "a pedo" in a tweet.
When challenged by a Twitter user about the allegation levelled against Unsworth, Musk replied "Bet ya a signed dollar it's true".
Responding to his own tweet, Mr Musk said: "You know what, don't bother showing the video. It wouldn't have made the first 50m into the cave ... just a PR stunt", he said.
Unsworth told AFP on Monday he had not reviewed the tweets in full and had only heard about them.
Musk's final tweet in the thread referred to Unsworth as "pedo guy".
Furious Elon Musk calls Thailand cave rescue diver a 'pedo'
Unsworth essentially called the submarine useless.
Representatives for both Tesla and SpaceX did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Musk and his engineers built a miniature submarine in hopes that it could be used to ferry the kids to safety, but the idea was rejected by the rescue team as the submarine was unlikely to be able to navigate the cramped caves. Secondly, nearly everyone is in agreement that he went way overboard with the remark accusing Unsworth of being a pedophile just because he doesn't like what the man said, as can be seen in the replies to his tweet.
His remarks were shared on Twitter by a certain Rex Kramer (@RexDangerSeeker) who shared screenshots of Unsworth's interview last July 13.
Musk initially became involved in the rescue after someone tweeted at him, asking if he would offer any assistance.
The caver said he would make a decision when he flies back to the United Kingdom this week, but added that the episode with Musk "ain't finished".
All 12 boys and their coach were later rescued by divers without Mr Musk's help.
