Elon Musk apologizes to cave rescue diver for calling him a ‘pedo’

Elon Musk has apologized for a vicious attack on a British diver who helped rescue a group of boys from a Thai cave, saying his words were “spoken in anger.”

Over the weekend, the Tesla Inc. TSLA, +0.32%CEO branded Vern Unsworth a “pedo,” or pedophile, after the diving expert criticized Musk’s bid to help the rescue by sending in a mini-submarine. Unsworth described Musk’s offer as a PR stunt that had no chance of working.

“My words were spoken in anger after Mr. Unsworth said several untruths & suggested I engage in a sexual act with the mini-sub, which had been built as an act of kindness & according to specifications from the dive team leader,” Musk wrote in a tweet, posted Wednesday in reply to another Twitter user.
