From a report by CNBC today, Musk had blasted Unsworth on Twitter after the diver "criticized his mini-submarine plan to help rescue the trapped team". However, earlier this week, Musk appeared to double-down on his pedophilia themed attacks, tweeting, "You don't think it's unusual [Unsworth] hasn't sued me? He was offered free legal services", Musk said in a response to Drew Olanoff, who is vice president of communications for Scaleworks, a San Antonio-headquartered venture equity firm.

"I think sometimes people think I spend a lot of time in Twitter", he told the YouTuber Marques Brownlee earlier this month.
Musk's weird allegation came after Unsworth accused Musk of using the Thai cave rescue ordeal to stage a publicity stunt.

According to a tweet from Lin Wood, an Atlanta-based defamation expert, Vernon Unsworth has retained him as legal counsel and is "preparing a civil complaint for libel" against Mr Musk.
But Musk's decision to continue to respond to critics on Twitter indicates he won't change easily, said Charles Elson, a University of DE finance professor who specializes in corporate governance. "You did so without any basis".
This new chapter of the "pedo guy" controversy is a fresh display of Musk's recently erratic behavior.
The Thai soccer team of young boys spent two weeks in the cave before being rescued on July 10.
Mr Musk posted: "We will make one (a video) of the mini-sub/ pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo". Last week, Musk said Telsa would remain publicly-traded.
