Elon is still throwing out pedophile accusations. He has learned nothing.

    This is extremely troubling. Does he really have the same lack of self control as the president? Is his brain fried?

    I never thought I'd say these words, but I really hope that guy is a pedophile. And elon has evidence. Otherwise he's gone nuts.

    Is this old news for calling the Thailand cave rescuer "pedo" but he apologized already?

    Are there repeated incidences after that?

    He probably has some decent evidence from the guy's past or else he wouldn't push it like he is.

    Even if he does, this story has run its course. No need to bring it back.

    His priority is all messed up.

    He needs to go to police to report the pedo, and not Twitter.

    This case reflects poorly on his leadership!

    His approach is definitely controversial, and I'm not denying that. But it appears this is important to him and he's not going to let it go. Also, perhaps there's possibility that it's something from the past and it's already been reported and prosecuted by the authorities... thus that's how he knows and why he's surprised nobody has looked into it.

    Just like Trump, Elon can't resist to tweet some garbage. If anything, it's a massive distraction for everyone. Someone needs to take Twitter away from him .

    I can't see anyone calling someone a "pedo" without some reason. It's not a common term when name calling. Elon most likely saw or knows something that is eating at him. What do we actually know about Vern Unsworth's past? Why has he opted to spend so much time in the sex capitol of the world? Are the caves there really that unique from all of the rest of the world's caves?

    These are all baseless accusations. I know people who live in Thailand and they not there because they are pedos. It's a great place to live/retire.

    Under what circumstances would Elon see that this guy is a pedo?

    That would be enough to warrant the title.

    Tesla needs a COO like there is no tomorrow. Elon needs a vacation, to discover a work life balance, and to abandon Twitter. Please Elon, concentrate on making great cars/rockets and staying sane!

    Ohhhhh, according to Reddit! Well thats a super-reliable source of information for sure!

    I'm sure all the pictures were legit and also had their IDs in the photo to verify that they are, indeed, underage!

    Yes. It's personally important for him but not for a representative of an organization that needs to announce substantiated facts, not rumors.

    It's the same way that he announced the "funding secured" to take Tesla private: Although the money is there but the terms to grab the money is not acceptable (Germany wants controls in exchange for funding $30 billion). Thus, it has never been secured because no terms were discussed prior to the announcement.

    Of course there are tons of good people living and working in Thailand. This does not change the fact that it is a hotbed of sex trafficking.

    "The US State Department's influential annual Trafficking in Persons Report for 2014 downgraded Thailand from Tier 2 to Tier 3 status. Tier 3 is reserved for those nations whose governments do not fully comply with minimum human trafficking abatement efforts and are not making significant efforts to comply with those standards."

    No one has posted any copy of those pictures (AFAIK). Isn’t it strange? Elon has millions of fans but no one posts this crucial evidence..

    OK? There is plenty of sex trafficking in the USA too, doesn't mean everyone living in America is a pedo.

    Elon is barking up the wrong tree here.
