Using inappropriate words while tweeting is not a good idea. In this post, we will tell you how the Chief Executive of Tesla, Elon Musk tweeted “Pedo Guy” to a caver, and how Unsworth sued him.
Elon Musk, chief executive of Tesla, will appear in his own justification in contradiction of an offense court case sued by the British cave rescue diver, lawyer of Elon Musk said in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Monday.
Elon Musk sued by Vernon Unsworth, the British caver, because Musk calls him a “Pedo Guy” in a tweet. Elon Musk posted the tweet after Vernon Unsworth blamed Musk in an interview by CNN of grandstanding by proposing to help Vernon Unsworth’s diving team rescue 12 boys and their soccer coach in July 2018, from a cave in Thailand.
Elon Musk lawyer, Alexander Spiro, told the court, “Proof is going to be over Mr. Musk (appearing) that actually Mr. Elon Musk didn’t call Vernon Unsworth a pedophile. And in fact, Mr. Elon Musk deleted that tweet, express regret, and branched out.”
Before a trial scheduled to begin on December 3rd in Los Angeles Federal Court, there was no sign by the accuser that they were interested in settlement of the case.
L. Lin Wood, the lawyer of Vernon Unsworth, said Vernon would also appear. And also told the court that he would provide proof of harms by “speaking about his anxieties, fears, and his worries by being branded a “Pedo Guy.”
Stephen Wilson, the U.S. District Judge, called for the second day of pretrial trials to look into what proof can be used in next week’s public trial.
Wilson rejected Musk’s challenge to have the court case terminated and also lined that Vernon Unsworth was not a celebrity, and it makes it informal to prove the offense.
Elon Musk had claimed that Vernon became a star because of his support with the prestigious rescue and desirable to prove “actual malice.”
Elon has express regret for the “Pedo Guy” tweet, saying it was a common insult where he was growing up in South Africa, and that he did not mean to blame Vernon Unsworth of pedophilia.
Unsworth said he had shared a house in the Thailand rural area with a 40-year-old lady who owned a beauty salon and has starved of the accusations.
The clash in the middle of the two men stood up when the search team categorical not to use a mini-submarine offered by SpaceX rocket of Elon Musk’s company to aid with the rescue. Unsworth Vernon told CNN that the proposal was a “PR stunt” and that Musk could “twig his marine where it hurts.” Vernon Unsworth is looking for compensatory and punitive compensations.
Elon Musk lately settled a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission court case in excess of his Twitter use.
