US Court Green Lights Thailand Cave Defamation Lawsuit Against Musk

A US court recently gave the okay to a defamation lawsuit filed against Elon Musk by one of the rescue divers who heroically helped save the youth soccer team trapped in a cave in Northern Thailand.

On Twitter, Musk had called the rescuer Vernon Unsworth as a “pedo guy” and also told a journalist that Unsworth was a “child rapist”.

The public squabble between the two started after Unsworth publicly slammed Musk’s child-sized mini rescue submarine a “pr stunt”.

Musk then told Unsworth to “stick his submarine where it hurts”.
