For every extraordinary stunt, theres something else odd or humiliating, most recently calling a Thailand cave rescuer a pedo, says Guardian correspondent Hannah Jane Parkinson
When I was at institution, one of the go-to playground reviles, I am afraid, was ” paedo “. Mostly the teaches were paedos, but the socially tricky kid in sixth way and the porter who scuppered your escape at midday is likewise targets. Of direction, I realise now that even jokingly alleging someone of sexually mistreating children isn’t witty or inventive. You grow out of these baseless, ludicrous monikers, don’t you?
Not Elon Musk, aged 47. The tech CEO has called the British diver Vern Unsworth- one of the first divers on the situation who helped rescue the Thai football team caught in a cave- a “pedo” on Twitter( “hes having” 22 million partisans ). This was plainly because Unsworth pointed out that Musk’s offer of a submarine wasn’t helpful to the rescue efforts.
Just watch the video in which Unsworth passes his opinion on Musk’s submarine.” He can stay it where it hurts ,” Unsworth says, which may have precipitated Musk’s ” pedo ” observe, but just to reiterate, Musk is 47, and I do not ponder Unsworth was seriously considering sodomising him with an oxygen cylinder. Perhaps the best part of the video is when the interviewer says:” But[ Musk] was in the cave ,” and without “re missing a” pulsate, Unsworth answers:” And was asked to leave very quickly .” The diver is now considering legal action over the tweet.
Last week Musk kicked off because the media referred to him as a billionaire. The billionaire name, Musk quarrelled, are applied to “devalue” him( even though it’s factually remedy ), and in a staggeringly unintelligent see he moaned that” they didn’t announce me that until my fellowships got to a certain size “. Well, duh.
It’s wild that Musk can act like such a bonehead. He is clearly very intelligent and his SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket launch in February was genuinely awe-inspiring. Sure, he boasted relentlessly and couldn’t defy appending one of his Tesla vehicles to the rocket- and his space journey attempts are based on his strange opinion that artificial intelligence is going to go charlatan, become evil, take over the Earth and we are all going to have to colonise Mars( I am be taken seriously here)- but there is no doubt the launch was an extraordinary accomplishment of engineering and layout. He is dating the vocalist Grimes and he’s objectively handsome, even if examining a little bit like a Madame Tussauds waxwork. The guy is doing well.
