Tesla Inc founder Elon Musk has apologised to Vern Unsworth, the diver who played a key role in Thai schoolboys rescue operation, for calling him a “pedo” in a tweet earlier. An altercation had erupted between Musk and Unsworth after the latter rejected his proposal to send a ‘mini-submarine’ for the rescue of the 12 schoolboys and their football coach.
