British caver from Thai rescue slams Elon Musk submarine as 'PR stunt'

Furious liberals meltdown sell Teslas after Elon Musk’s significant Republican donation uncovered

"He can stick his submarine where it hurts" the British rescue worker told CNN. James Anderson, a partner at Baillie Gifford, Tesla's fourth-largest shareholder, said in a recent Bloomberg interview the company needed a period of "peace and execution", adding: "It would be good to just concentrate on the core task". But that wasn't enough, he then called Unsworth, "Pedo guy", and that is where he might be getting himself in serious trouble.

Musk responded on Twitter, implying it was "sus" [suspect] for a British ex-pat to be living in Thailand, before offering to make a video of the mini-sub working inside the cave. Musk, for no reason whatsoever, called Unsworth a "pedo".

A British cave explorer who recently helped rescue 12 boys and their soccer coach from a Thailand cave network slammed Elon Musk's child-sized submarine proposal as a "PR stunt".

"I thought they had it in hand & only agreed to help when Thai SEAL died (deep cave pumps not operating at time)", Musk said.

And Unsworth should know - he was instrumental in the boys' rescue, convincing Thai authorities to call on a team of English divers who knew the cave, according to the Daily Mail.

The 47-year-old Tesla and SpaceX CEO didn't take the criticism too kindly, lashing out at Unsworth in a series of tweets Sunday in which he baselessly accused the diver of being a pedophile. They were found 200m from that spot.

"Just returned from Cave 3".

The "Wild Boar" team were rescued last week by an worldwide team of divers through a narrow network of twisting, flooded tunnels.

The boys got stuck in the cave after wandering in on June 23 after football practice only to find themselves trapped by rising floodwaters.

There is no indication that Musk's statement is true, and he provided no justification or proof to back up his claim.

"Right now, I have one of the world's best engineering teams who normally design spaceships and spacesuits working on this thing 24 hours a day", Musk's email to Stanton dated July 8 read.

The billionaire attracted controversy for his approach to the Thai rescue after Narongsak Osatanakorn, head of the joint command centre, said the mini-submarine would not have been practical. "If the rain holds out it may well be used".
