Elon Musk correct received his trial against the British diver in the Thailand cave rescue he infamously labeled a “pedo” — a jury correct made up our minds Elon did no longer defame Vernon Unsworth.
The jury wasn’t ecstatic Elon went too some distance with his tweet after Unsworth helped rescue the 12 boys trapped in a cave with their soccer coach help in 2018. It did no longer capture ’em prolonged to reach their verdict Friday in federal court in L.A. — a mere 50 minutes of deliberation.
Elon even took the stand this week to testify … and whereas on the stand he apologized to Unsworth and stated he did no longer in truth take into consideration the guy was as soon as a pedophile.
As we reported, Unsworth sued Elon for defamation after the Tesla and SpaceX CEO called him a “pedo guy” whereas they had been beefing on social media.
Unsworth ripped Elon’s efforts to create a mini-submarine to support with the rescue … calling it a “PR stunt” with “absolutely no likelihood of working” and telling Elon to “stick his submarine the set apart it hurts.”
Elon lashed help at Unsworth on Twitter, pronouncing, “Sorry pedo guy, you in truth did request for it.”
Unsworth did no longer discover the capture, however he did discover Elon’s apology below oath. That is something.
