In now-deleted tweets, Musk seemed to respond to Unsworth's comments, calling the diver "sus" and a "pedo" in a baseless personal attack.
British rescuer Vern Unsworth says he is considering legal action against United States billionaire Elon Musk after he made an unfounded and disparaging claim he was a "pedo", or pedophile, in a now-deleted tweet. "Only people in sight were the Thai navy/army guys, who were great", Musk wrote. Engineers from SpaceX, Musk's rocket company, has been training members of the Thai Navy to use the mini-submarine.
Vernon Unsworth, an explorer who is an expert in the cave, dismissed Musk's submarine was "a PR stunt" in an interview with CNN. He wrote: "We will make [a video] of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo". But that wasn't enough, he then called Unsworth, "Pedo guy", and that is where he might be getting himself in serious trouble. Mr Musk travelled to the Tham Luang caverns in Chiang Rai this week and presented the six-foot submarine - which he said could help free 12 schoolboys stranded for weeks inside the cave.
"He's just a PR stunt merchant - that's all he is", Unsworth added.

Officials said three or four officers suffered minor injuries and one patrol auto was damaged, and four protestors were arrested. A third officer was shot while searching for the suspect, who barricaded himself inside a home less than a mile from the motel.
"Just to get any of them out alive would have been a miracle", Unsworth told CNN.
Musk was intensely criticised on Twitter for the attack on Unsworth.
BBC reporter Jonathan Head defended Unsworth, tweeting at Musk an account of his herculean efforts and concluding: "It's somewhere between extremely probable and nearly certain that the 13 would have died trapped in Tham Luang without Unsworth's role".
Musk didn't seem pleased with Unsworth's statements and took to his Twitter page to air out his grievances.
Musk visited the cave site before the rescue operation was carried out.
