Short Seller Andrew Left Sues Tesla and Musk

Short Seller Andrew Left Sues Tesla and Musk

All of this comes after Unsworth retained the services of a lawyer to begin defamation action against Musk, who first bandied about his claims on Twitter in July. "Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it", Reuters reported.

On Tuesday, BuzzFeed News published two of Musk's emails in which he called a journalist who has written about the dispute a "f*cking asshole" and made new claims against Unsworth without any evidence for them. But it is unclear why Musk has repeatedly and publicly attacked Usworth, 63, since then - or where the apparently baseless pedophilia allegations came from.

In an email to a reporter, Mr Musk said Vernon Unsworth - who assisted with the rescue of 12 Thai teenagers from a flooded cave - was a "child rapist".

Unsworth's lawyer said he would sue Musk over both the latest and previous allegations.

The boys, members of a youth soccer team called the Wild Boars, and their coach spent almost three weeks underground before an global team of divers and cave experts rescued them from the cave in July. "Musk did not provide proof of his claims to Buzzfeed News, and Buzzfeed News could not verify any of the claims after reporting on Unsworth's background". It isn't where you'd go for caves, but it is where you'd go for something else. Chiang Rai is renowned for child sex-trafficking'. Their reporting has not yet turned up any evidence of a criminal record for Unsworth in the United Kingdom, while a Thai official said it was highly unlikely Unsworth, who has lived in Thailand on-and-off for years, would be granted a visa if there was evidence he was a child abuser.

Federer, Djokovic through as storm rages over umpire's Kyrgios pep-talk
Paire smashed his racquet, argued with the umpire and produced 11 double faults as Federer came through 7-5 6-4 6-4. The only problem? Umpires aren't allowed to give struggling players any form of on-court coaching or pep talks.

Mr Unsworth's girlfriend, Woranan Ratrawiphukkun, 40, yesterday said she was "no child bride".

Yes, that is the CEO of the second most valuable automaker in America calling a reporter a f***ing a**hole, accusing him of "defending child rapists", and going into oddly specific yet entirely circumstantial detail about why he believes Unsworth is actually a pedophile. Even at a time where this kind of unprofessional, unbalanced conduct has been wholly normalized, Musk's unrelenting and highly public grudge match with a private citizen stands out as truly troubling and deeply weird. "I started to doubt whether I was also stuck in the cave", he said.

The proposed class period runs from August 7 to August 17, over which time Left said he bought and sold many millions of dollars of Tesla shares.

According to The Verge, Musk said in the YouTube interview that he hoped to scale production at Tesla and lower their design and technology costs enough to be able to offer a truly mass-market electric vehicle.
