After a British cave diver questioned the tech entrepreneur's role in the rescue, Musk lashed out on Twitter.
The billionaire Tesla CEO was widely condemned for throwing the slur at Vernon Unsworth after he had questioned Musk's involvement in the rescue that captured the world's attention. In an interview in the aftermath of the rescue, Unsworth intimated that Musk's plans to rescue the boys with a miniature submarine a "PR stunt" and he told the tech entrepreneur to “stick his submarine where it hurts.”
Musk retaliated on Twitter, writing: "Never saw this British expat guy who lives in Thailand (sus) at any point when we were in the caves. Only people in sight were the Thai navy/army guys, who were great. Thai navy seals escorted us in — total opposite of wanting us to leave."
