The dramatic rescue of a Thai soccer team and their coach from a cave last week is now being overshadowed by the drama between one of the rescuers and billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

Musk offered to help with the rescue operation but one of the rescuers named Vern Unsworth dismissed the idea that Musk put forward as nothing but a PR stunt.

And Musk did not take that very well, this weekend on Twitter he called Unsworth a “pedo guy” on Twitter. And things have gotten even more nuts since.

Musk then doubled down when challenged on Twitter saying he “Never saw this British expat guy who lives in Thailand” when he visited the cave where the soccer team was trapped.

Musk has since deleted the Tweets but that hasn’t ended the drama around them.

Firstly, Unsworth says he is now considering legal action against Musk for the Tweets. 

And people online are now lining up to have a go at Musk for what he said about the rescuer.  

Someone says Musk shouldn't throw stones considering that his father had a child with his own step-daughter.

So as you can see this whole situation is now overshadowing what should be a celebrated rescue operation. 

Musk has yet to publically comment about the outcry he has caused online.
