Mum of hero British caver says Elon Musk should be ‘put up against a wall and shot’ for calling her son a ‘paedo’


THE elderly mum of Brit cave hero Vern Unsworth says tech billionaire Elon Musk should be shot for falsely branding her son a paedo.

Musk let rip at the cave expert on Twitter after he dismissed the tycoon’s offer to build a mini submarine to free a trapped football team a PR stunt.

The Tesla boss has since apologised to 63-year-old Unsworth, but his mum has clearly not forgiven Musk for what he said about her son.

When asked about the “paedo” slur, Vera Unsworth, 88, said: “That’s stupid, that is the last thing he is. It’s disgusting, absolutely disgusting that.

“If I had my way I’d put him (Musk) against a wall and shoot him, it’s disgusting coming from a millionaire as well.

“He wants his mouth taped up. I don’t know if Vernon will seek legal recourse, if he has any sense he will.

“He probably thinks money doesn’t hurt him and he can get away with anything. I hope he does take legal action but the point will be he has got the money and Vernon hasn’t.

“I’m shocked I don’t really know what to say.”

Unsworth is a British expat who lives near the Tham Luang cave network in Thailand where 12 boys and their football coach became trapped for more than two weeks.

The former financial adviser was the first foreign rescuer at the scene and played a crucial role in saving the team.

He spent years exploring the cave system where the boys were trapped for 17 days, meaning he had expert knowledge vital to the rescue.

However, he was scathing of Musk’s offer to send a mini-submarine to help in the rescue efforts, which he dismissed as “just a PR stunt”.

Musk- worth a reported $20bn-  hit back at Vern in a bizarre series of tweets, some of which he later deleted, suggesting the expert caver had exaggerated his leading role in the rescue.

He also claimed it was suspicious the Brit lived in Thailand before explicitly branding him a “paedo” in one post.

Musk said: “Never saw this British expat guy who lives in Thailand (sus) at any point when we were in the caves.” Later Mr Musk tweeted to his 22 million followers: “Bet ya a signed dollar it’s true”.

Unsworth has said is now considering taking legal action against Musk for his astonishing remarks.

“Its not finished. No justification. At the end of the day we were here to rescue 12 young boys. I don’t really understand the guy. Obviously it’s a bruised ego,” he said earlier this week. “I’ll take advice when I get back to London.”

In a Tweet, Musk had proposed “a tiny kid sized submarine” for the rescue. He showed a test of the submarine in a Los Angeles swimming pool on July 9.
