Elon Musk is back to insinuating Thai cave diver is a "pedo"

Elon Musk has tweeted again about a man he had previously accused of being a child abuser.

Musk later apologised for the tweets, but yesterday seemed to backtrack by tweeting: "You don't think it's unusual he hasn't sued me? He was offered free legal services", Musk said after the Twitter user, Drew Olanoff, criticised Musk for the "pedo" tweet.

That caused major swings in the company's share price and subsequent claims that his message had been misleading. "I worked with Silver Lake, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, who have world-class expertise in these matters, to consider the many factors that would come into play in taking Tesla private, and to process all the incoming interest that we received from investors to fund a go-private transaction", Musk wrote.

To keep tabs on Tesla inventory, @Latrilife monitors California lots where he said Tesla cars are kept before being shipped to distribution centers and posts the footage on Twitter.

Rather than responding to a media inquiry on the possible libel suit, Musk lashed out at BuzzFeed News when the outlet asked for comment.

Musk said on Friday that Tesla would remain public, but said he believed there was "more than enough funding" to take the company private.

The clash appeared to have been resolved after Mr Musk deleted his offending tweets.

He was responding to a tweet by Olanoff, who told Musk that his "dedication to facts and truth would have been wonderful" if he had applied it to when he "called someone a pedo".

Mr Musk then apologised after Mr Vernon said he was considering suing him. After receiving requests online that he help in the Thai rescue efforts, Musk, together with SpaceX and Boring Co. engineers, developed a mini-submarine that the stranded children could use to escape the flooded cave system.

"I think sometimes people think I spend a lot of time in Twitter", he told the YouTuber Marques Brownlee earlier this month.

Musk's August 7 tweet that he had "funding secured" for the deal and a subsequent New York Times interview in which he described his critics as "smartish" sparked a frenzy of online lampoons of the 47-year-old billionaire CEO.

Elon Musk seems to be spiraling at a frightening pace.

Not how she wants to be perceived as a chief executive.

"But there can be a lack of humility that comes with being involved with big tech".
