Tesla investors are demanding an apology from Elon Musk after he branded a British cave diver who rescued children from a cave in Thailand a “pedo”.

 

The billionaire business magnate’s Twitter post sparked a huge backlash from shareholders in his firm, who later hit out further at Mr Musk in an open letter.

 

Mr Musk baselessly called the diver Vernon Unsworth a “pedo” in the social media rant before doubling down on the insult and eventually deleting the posts.

This and his share price are two distinct issues not evenly closely related. Have a read of the article below that was written in March 2018;

The share price has been taking a hit.

 

Pedo comment shouldn't have been said.

Sounds like u have been listening to chicken Little. Same could be said of any listed company. If it gets down to about .20 be careful?

Follow the money.  Money talks.  Worried investors begin to duck for cover.

Even Reuters has been wrong calling him a caver, then diver, then caver. The quote above posted by holy cow cm is from a Reuters report last night. 

 

Quote

Unsworth said he brought his knowledge about the cave to the rescue mission but added that he “no idea” what the diving conditions were like because he is not a cave diver.

 

Whether or not Musk realizes how much damage such a "pedo" comment could cause, it was an incredibly cheap but seriously damaging shot. He should have  immediately apologized well before Tesla investors got on his case.
