Dry eyes: Tesla's Musk says he shed no tears in interview

Elon Musk renews 'pedo' controversy, asks if it's 'strange' the British diver hasn't sued

Earlier, Musk had called the diver Vernon Unsworth a "pedo" (short for paedophile), for which he later apologised. Unsworth was dismissive of the mini-sub, stating that it would not work and suggesting that Musk "stick his submarine where it hurts".

Musk offered to build a mini-submarine to rescue the children, but the head of the mission called it "not practical".

"Nonetheless, his actions against me do not justify my actions against him, and for that I apologize to Mr. Unsworth and to the companies I represent as leader", Musk tweeted. "He was offered free legal services.' Unsworth's attorney called Musk's tweets 'false and defamatory" in the letter. "I don't think a CEO should be on Twitter; I would have hoped that would have been the lesson. Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it". And on Wednesday came news that the National Labor Relations Board has filed a complaint alleging Musk broke US labor laws when he tweeted in May about a union organizing effort at Tesla's Fremont, California, plant.

And there it remained until Tuesday when, amid a Twitter discussion about an interview earlier this month with The New York Times during which the reporters wrote that Musk was driven to tears. That's according to a letter dated August 6 from Unsworth's attorney sent to CNBC. "You published through three different tweets to your twenty-two million followers that Mr. Unsworth engages in the sexual exploitation of Thai children, and you did so at a time when he was working to save the lives of twelve Thai children", the letter notes.

East Coast-based small business owner Paul Shust, who told Reuters he uses information posted on $TSLAQ FinTwit and has an options bets against Tesla, said he was so upset by Musk's August 7 tweet that he wrote to SEC Commissioner Kara Stein that day, according to an email seen by Reuters. "You did so without any basis".

Musk later apologised for the tweets, but yesterday seemed to backtrack by tweeting: "You don't think it's odd he hasn't sued me?"

Tesla CEO Elon Musk, already facing an SEC investigation that started when he tweeted about taking his company private, has continued to tweet - despite being asked by his board not to.
