Elon Musk is back to insinuating Thai cave diver is a "pedo"

But earlier this week, Musk, baited by some other Twitter users, brought the subject back up, declaring it "strange" that Unsworth never sued him.

Wood, Unsworth's attorney, said Wednesday that he sent Musk a note on August 6 alerting the billionaire that a lawsuit was in the works. The insinuation here seems to be Unsworth hasn't sued Musk because he is in fact a "pedo" as Musk put it.

"Nonetheless, his 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 tweeted.

The multi-billionaire hasn't been shy about his awareness of the blockchain sector, either - in Janurary, Musk joked that the Boring Company flamethrowers would have "the safe word "cryptocurrency" [and come] with a free blockchain". "He called on Musk's legal counsel to contact him in order to avoid litigation and to correct the allegedly false statements".

In it, Wood says he is "in the process of preparing a civil complaint for libel" against Musk on Unsworth's behalf.

Not only would Musk later admit that funding had not been secured, but in a Friday blog post wrote that he and Tesla's board of directors decided it was in the best interests of the Palo Alto-based to remain public.

Three weeks ago, he tweeted that he was considering taking Tesla private - a move that has led to at least two class-actions suits being filed and a possible investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

A Tesla employee who was sacked from a Nevada battery factory filed a whistleblower complaint with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, accusing the electric-car maker of spying on its workers and turning a blind eye to drug trafficking by the Mexican cartel.

A spokesman for Tesla declined to comment on short-sellers, who are often dubbed "haters" by Musk's supporters on Twitter.

Ferguson is only one of thousands of Tesla bears who use Twitter to crowdsource financial data, photos, satellite imagery and video footage of Tesla facilities to shed light on the company's production and sales figures to support their view that the stock is overvalued. "According to a subsequent Twitter post, you did so out of anger". A spokesperson for Tesla issued a statement to Reuters welcoming the Ontario judge's ruling.

Whether or not Musk actually cried real baby man tears is neither here nor there.
