Elon Musk’s “pedo guy” trial is expected to wind down today.
Here is the back story:
The spat began after Unsworth helped coordinate last year's rescue of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave in Thailand. Afterward, Unsworth in a CNN interview mocked Musk's offer of a mini-submersible as a "P.R. stunt" and said Musk could "stick his submarine where it hurts."
Musk, 48, who had traveled to the rescue site to deliver the mini-sub that was never used, testified he took to Twitter to lash out at Unsworth after seeing the interview.
Musk said the term "pedo guy" was a common epithet in South Africa, where he grew up and insisted in court he did not believe Unsworth was a pedophile. - https://finance.yaho...-110736119.html
In short, Unsworth claims his character was negatively impacted by Musk’s retaliatory tweet and is seeking unspecified damages.
