Apparently, Elon Musk will live his entire life without ever being held responsible for anything he does, no matter what he does.
Must be nice.
After a four-day-long trial, a jury took less than an hour to decide that Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk did not defame British caver Vernon Unsworth when he sent a tweet calling Unsworth “pedo guy.”
“My faith in humanity is restored,” Musk said as he was leaving the courtroom on Friday after the verdict was announced.
Well, that’s a weird comment from a weird bugger.
Unsworth sued Musk in September 2018 for defamation, seeking punitive and compensatory damages. Unsworth had helped rescue 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded Thai cave last year. Musk had referred to Unsworth as “pedo guy” in a tweet sent shortly after the rescue. This week, Unsworth testified that the tweet made him feel “humiliated, ashamed, dirty.”
During closing arguments on Friday, Unsworth’s attorney L. Lin Wood said the tweet was “a nuclear bomb.”
“There are people and relationships and situations that will be harmed for decades because of the fallout,” Wood said.
At the heart of the case was whether Musk’s “pedo guy” tweet was a statement of fact. According to Musk’s legal team, it was an insult that was provoked by Unsworth, who called Musk’s efforts to help with the rescue a “PR stunt.”
“We’re having a federal case about him using the wrong insult,” said defense lawyer Alex Spiro.
Musk involved himself in the Thai cave rescue by instructing his employees to build a mini submarine to help save the boys. Unsworth said in a CNN interview that Musk should “stick his submarine where it hurts.” After seeing the interview, Musk fired off his “pedo guy” tweet on July 15, 2018. In his opening statement, Spiro said Musk’s tweet “was a joking, deleted, apologized for, responsive tweet. A JDART.”
On Friday, Spiro said Musk was genuine in his efforts. “No one can bring together people like he can to do the impossible,” Spiro said.
It is a lie that this was simply a random insult. People all over the internet were trying to dig up dirt on this guy to prove the allegation.
Elon himself doubled down on it.
Then he tripled down and suggested there was research into Unsworth’s sex habits.
It was intended to be taken literally, because there is a vicious feminist blood libel that white men who go to Asia are having sex with children. I lived in Asia for nearly ten years, met some really scummy criminal type people (a minority, but I did meet them), and never once did I ever hear of pedophilia. I never heard anyone talking about it, was never offered underage girls, nothing.
The worst thing that I’m aware of happening is 15-16 year olds lying about their age and entrapping guys. And when that happens, if they get caught, they go to jail, even though they were tricked.
The pedophilia is happening in Western countries. The Moslems are doing it, the elite are doing it, the homosexuals are doing it. Homosexuals are literally allowed to “adopt” children as sexual playthings in virtually every Western country.
We all know what’s going on there, and no one says it because they think it’s impolite.
But it’s fine to insult the entire Asian race as a bunch of heartless demons selling their children, and insult all men that go there as child rapists.
Elon Musk is a piece of shit, he should be deported and he should be in prison for all of these scams.
The only good thing to come from this is this court room drawing:
Elon does indeed look like a Dr. Seuss character.
