Musk was angrily responding to an interview Unsworth gave on Sunday in which he said a child-sized submarine the Tesla chief executive delivered to the cave site last week "had absolutely no chance of working".
"Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it", Musk wrote, clarifying in a follow-up tweet that he meant "the Brit expat diver" was a pedophile. In an interview last week, Musk said he was reforming from his belief that Twitter was a no-holds-barred battleground where "if you attack me, it is therefore okay for me to attack back".
If you're the billionaire founder of several publicly traded companies, here's an easy PR strategy: Never tweet. "I have given vastly more to humanitarian causes". The British diver reportedly helped recruit top global cave rescue experts for the mission as well. That report came after some criticism of the plan from people who argued that the relatively large submarine would not be able to fit around the tight cave network the boys had to navigate. In May, Tesla shares suffered a similar plunge after Musk's erratic performance.
Unsworth, 63, said he hadn't actually met Musk face to face when Musk visited the cave during the rescue effort. The submarine, I believe, was about five-foot-six long, rigid, so it wouldn't have gone round corners or round any obstacles.
Munster and other investors said that while they've sometimes agreed with Musk's Twitter statements in the past, they couldn't back him up this time. Musk told his followers on Twitter that he was talking to cave experts about a "tiny, kid-size submarine" that he had created that "might be safe enough to try".

Though Musk later deleted the tweet, he also later tweeted out another now-deleted message saying he'd bet a signed dollar that his claim of pedophilia was correct.
Mr O'Donnell said Mr Musk has fallen into a "hero worship persona" but has failed to live up to the responsibility that implies.
When asked if he would consider legal action against Mr Musk over the comments, he said, "yes, it's not finished". "I haven't decided what to do next yet", Vern Unsworth told Reuters in Mae Sai town in Chiang Rai province, about 2 miles from the cave where the boys and their coach were trapped for 18 days.
Last month, he alleged sabotage at Tesla's operations by an employee, who responded by claiming to be a whistleblower. Meanwhile, CEO of Brian Communications Brian Tierney said Musk is "not showing the kind of discipline of someone going to manufacture hundreds of thousands of cars".
