Musk offers a weird apology.

That cracked me up. People should have this kind of humor. Such a stress releif.

@nag : The aftermath is a testimony of the character?

Imagine this...hold for it...He has to live with this abnormal tweet. *Anyone could have done such a stupid one. Now he's a public person. He is not abliged by the same rules as the common pleb.
It's tough up in the hierarchy.

The English guy was an expert caver/potholer/spelunker. His expert knowledge of the cave was critical in the rescue, and he was regularly in consultation with the divers brought in at his recommendation.

Whereas Musk is a tool who seems to think that he knows better than teams of caving and diving experts when rescuing people from flooded caves.

I think that English guy is going to be VERY rich VERY soon

Having been to Thailand a few times, I understand Musk's troll. The number of expats in Thailand for purely sexual reasons is revolting.

Musk is too rich to lose that sort of court case. He said pedo (foot), not paedo (child molester).

Your energy independence is brought to you by Saudi Arabia, courtesy Musk.

Quote:
Elon Musk has outlined his plan to take Tesla private and said he discussed financing the deal with Saudi Arabia.

The founder of the electric carmaker also indicated that he would need to raise far less than the $70bn it has been estimated he would need.

Never ending fiasco, Musk.

Board decides to stay public.

OMG! When will this end?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6108365/Elon-Musk-doubles-pedo-guy-claim-British-diver.html

How long does it take for a board to decide to fire a CEO? Is it too difficult to boot out someone with 19% of the shares of the company?

Also, Tesla are poorly made pieces of junk.

No such thing as too rich in a British court remember. Loser pays the costs so money is immaterial. You can also ask a judge for a summary judgement to stop it going to court because this is an open-and-shut case

No. I mean that he has too much money to lose a court case where his offense was calling someone a foot. The assumption is that he was implying the guy was a paedophile because he called him a "pedo", but pedo means foot. Had he called him a paedo, the implication is clear. The lawyers that Musk can afford would easily win that case.

It's extremely pedantic, but lawyers and the law are pedantic.

Are these going through the British courts? That might be his first problem, he is rich and white. Which is a major crime in an of itself. British courts primary exist to serve Mulsims these days.

Secondly, he speaks his mind, which will immediately put him on the back pedo with the judge.

Actually though, USA is the only country I've seen that spells Pedophile with an 'a'. Not that I do a lot of research into pedo culture 8)

He said he is going to sue in three countries, Thailand because he can get actual jail time, UK courts and of-course US kangaroo courts.

Jesus. Jail time in Thailand.... If I was a benefit billionaire like him, I don't know what I would do if I wasn't allowed to go fuck Thai lady boys and snort coke.

Thing is Musk has not only doubled-down on said statement, but tripled and even quad-down on it...

it is getting harder and harder for a lawyer to spin this (still doable but you know :) )

if cases are being brought in Thailand, UK, US that is two area's he will more than certainly lose..
1) Thailand, these divers helped save nationals
2) UK, harshest libel laws that are upheld (t. cruise sues in the UK for this reason)

US... probably drag it out and he would probably get let off

Also Tesla are the most unreliable cars according to a survey in the UK.

Judge: No reasonable person would think that.

You're judging it like a criminal case with is 'beyond reasonable doubt', a civil case is judge on the 'balance of probability' and what the average person would reasonably think. If that argument came up it would be unreasonable to think someone would just put a random spanish noun into a sentence unless it forms part of a regularly used phrase like cojones

He literally did, and a decent lawyer can just point it out.

However, as Naib posted above, Musk just had to shoot himself in the foot and flat out call the guy a "child rapist" in an email.
