Elon’s “Imaginative ” Tweets…

Elon Musk wants the defamation suit brought against him by British diver Vernon Unsworth – whom he publicly accused of being a pedophile and child rapist after Unsworth declined Elon’s assistance rescuing a Thai soccer team (and their coach) who were trapped in an underwater cave – thrown in the woods.

Elon’s lawyers dismiss it all as “imaginative attacks” that amounted to a “schoolyard spat” and claim that, in any event, Musk’s accusations of pedophilia and child rape were protected “free speech.”

But Musk did more than just call names. He demanded – publicly – that Unsworth be investigated for pedophilia – urging a BuzzFeed reporter to “stop defending child rapists.”

That’s pretty heavy – and besides, calling a guy a jerk or whatever is not the same thing as publicly accusing someone of something not merely despicable but criminal.

How much is Unsworth’s reputation worth?

We’ll soon find out.

A hearing is scheduled for April, about four months from now.

  1. Musk will probably quietly settle out of court and say nothing more about it. His adoring press will conveniently forget about it, too. The range-of-the-moment American public will be unaware that there was ever any kind of flap and Teflon Musk will be smelling like a rose, PR-wise.

    • Hi Axis Sally,

      I think that’s what will happen, too. It’s revealing, isn’t it – as regards the bias of the media? They practically crucified Trump over “grab them by the pussy” – his crudely braggadocious comment about his normal/heterosexual (and not criminal) sexual exploits- but let it slide when a guy like Elon tosses around child-rape accusations.

  2. No, Elon, this is a clear classic case of slander. You will lose. If you want to end this, write the man a big check now rather then later.

    It’s telling how people complain about Trumps tweets, but this guy seems to get a pass.

    • Hi Rich,

      Agreed… it’s also hideously beyond the pale. I don’t like Elon – I think he’s a fraud and a rent-seeker – but those are legitimate appellations, based on tangible facts. I would never accuse him of something like the things he accused Unsworth of, without some pretty damned persuasive reason to (a la Kevin Spacey).

      I hope Unsworth relieves Elon of a Brinks truck’s worth of cash.
