Thai rescue: Elon Musk apologises to British caver for 'pedo' remark

Elon Musk has apologised for calling a British caver who helped rescue 12 Thai boys from a cave a "pedo".
Tesla CEO Musk issued the apology today to Vernon Unsworth, who worked on the rescue of the "Wild Boars" football team and had dismissed Musk's plan to recover the trapped group using a miniature submarine."(H)is actions against me do not justify my actions against him, and for that I apologize to Mr Unsworth and to the companies I represent as leader," Musk wrote on Twitter. "The fault is mine and mine alone." "Pedo" is short for paedophile.
Earlier he was considering taking legal action against Tesla boss Elon Musk after the entrepreneur called him a ‘pedo’ on social media. Musk had launched the Twitter rant against Briton Vernon Unsworth after the cave expert slammed his offer of a miniature submarine to extract the footballers from the Tham Luang cave as a "PR stunt".
Last week, a group of 12 football players and their coach were rescued by an international team of divers through a narrow network of twisting, flooded tunnels.According to Unsworth, who provided mapping knowledge of the cave to rescuers, said Musk's prototype would have had ‘absolutely no chance of working’. “He can stick the submarine where it hurts,” Unsworth had said in an interview.Musk responded Sunday in a bizarre series of tweets referring to Unsworth, without using his name, as "pedo guy". The tweets, however, were deleted later.
