He will still be respected and certainly a lot richer too if he sues.

He will have to go through a LOT if hassle and unpleasantness, for months at least, before a suit gets resolved and I suspect he does not want that, I know I wouldn't.   I also doubt he wants to make money out of this, just wanted a retraction of the baseless and libelous accusation.

 

Unfortunately the apology issued by Musk falls short of a real retraction.  But perhaps it can suffice.

The apology issued by Mr. Musk was very carefully worded in the context of possible legal action by Mr. Unsworth.

Go with the US ones, they will sting him a lot harder, half a million US is the going rate for libel, and that's without a gobby unlikeable billionaire being involved.

Musk is on record, undeniable libel. Demand USD 100,000 contribution to Muu Baa team facilities. Over.

yes said with the minimum it needs to be actually called an apology.

and that he did not mentioned any sorry for calling him a pedo, simply means it us worded so he is not admitting any guilt.

 

not good enough

 

So IMO- sue the สrse off him Vern

No contradiction, the interviews were afterwards and not really publicity seeking.

Whereas Musk came in, Hey look at me and what I can do.

If he REALLY wanted to save the boys and nothing else, then he could have certainly done it with a lot less fanfare.

Whether the interview was before or after isn't the real point the point is he did them and fire the first shot when it was not even necessary. So what he was looking for PR, that is his business what does it have to do with him or maybe he was upset or even jealous it took the attention away from him?

Guys like Musk, think money only I have no idea whether he wanted to save the boys or not but for sure he got the attention he wanted plus more from the Brit.

Personally, the greatest pressure is going to come from the Tesla Board, as you know the stock has dropped like 2 billion in 48hours, as I noted it is all about money and now Musk is in the hot seat with the Board. If he is removed it will be a huge embarrassment for him but he will walk away still with millions and continue getting millions. A guy with this type of ego and stubborn, vindictive, will go after the Brit with all he's got and go through his life with a fine comb, his relative, his ex-wife, his kids, and all his friends he associated with at home and Thailand. Believe me, they will find something if not they will make it up because everyone on this earth has skeletons in their closets!  If he is a man of principal and has the fight in him I say good luck but he is going to get crushed and someone close to him will do more suffering than him.

The best for him is the Board of Tesla don't want him to step down but have him shut his mouth, let the lawyers do the work and quiet this down and slip the Brit 500 to 2 million and be happy he was called a Pedo! He can live it up after he converts to Baht.  For that type of money, Musk can call me <deleted> he wants because I know it isn't true it just words and then shows me the money$$$$

Got like Musk, think money only I have no idea whether he wanted to save the boys or not but for sure he got the attention he wanted plus more from the Brit.

Clearly Musk's statement was unwarranted and ill conceived.  However, all this talk about running to lawyers and filing  charges for 'libel' only reinforce the already oppressive legal environment in most SE Asian countries over libel and slander.  The standards in the US for prevailing in such suits - even if there are such laws on the books are much different. Musk has already made an ass of himself, nothing else can really be accomplished.  Suck it up and get on with life.

Right, unlike Mr U who told Musk to stick his sub up his ass. A lot of British apologists and sages on this site.

I am having a similar thought to your last paragraph.

 

If Musk is publicly found guilty to his comment to Vern he has the power to send someone to C/Rai to see where Vern eats/drinks then give a local kid a 1000B to go up to Vern and plant a kiss on him ( just a horrid example ) while another kid takes a photo then it starts all over again.  Nasty thought but I would not put it past Musk to try and clear his name.

Your accusation there is far more libelous than Musk's, heat in the moment comment.

 

People here really need to read Dustdevil's posts on this thread (posts nos. 93 & 97 on p.7) to understand how difficult it would be to actually be successful in litigating this.

If Unsworth files a lawsuit he is gonna get one in return. He slandered Musk with his comments in front of the whole world. Millions of people know Musk. Does anybody know Unsworth? Whose reputation is likely to suffer more financially?  Clearly Musk's.

No, I don't.  And it wasn't me who called the guy a Pedo.  I won't insult you because you can't read.  It was Musk.  Your definition of ïdiot" is what?  So now you call Musk an "idiot"?  Compared to who? You? Really? What have you accomplished in your life?  Musk may be many things but ïdiot"is not one of them. Foolish, arrogant, a pompus ass fine but idiot, no.  Shows you are biased.  My latest tested IQ was 125. Can't remember where that stacks up. My sister belongs to Mensa.  Or whatever it's called.  

 

But it's ok for you to libel Musk here on TV and you want me to take you seriously? haha .  Gee, maybe he has a daughter who will read you called him an idiot and she may need psychological help the rest of her life because of what you wrote. My God sir have some class. 

 

And just how did I defame Mr Unsworth my friend?  Do your best to point it out to me.  How many people even know this guy? Those who do know him always suspected he was a Pedo did they?  And now they know for sure cause Musk tweeted it out?  Again I have to ask how stupid are these folks who buy in to that then?  I would not give a rat's ass about them.  And for those who do not know him <deleted> does he care? 

 

For those here on TV who are too stupid to see it was simply a reaction to what Unsworth tweeted to Musk I can only say you need psychological help. You  have serious issues.  Mental issues at a minimum.  I await your response with facts.  Try using them instead of making stuff up.

"My latest tested IQ was 125"

Probably on a FB test, if you don't know Mensa.

BTW mine is 136 on a proper test.

How can anyone not see that calling someone a pedo harms that person's reputation, whether it is a credible accusation or not? That position is perhaps logical to pedos, but I believe most fair-minded individuals will suspect that position has been advanced for reasons other than serious belief.

That is if he wins -- whether he sues or not, I would guess that the Musk legal team is in full gear preparing in case that he does.

There are plenty of lawyers offering their services on a no win no fee such is the strength of his case (unsubstantiated allegation of being a paedophile) . Musk's lawyers would settle out of court.

This is ridiculous. What is a "reputation"?  It's simply what someone else thinks about you. Soo, before Musk called him a Pedo his only reputation was with people who knew him. He had no reputation with anyone who did not know him.  And the people who know him I assume do not think he is a Pedo; therefore, he has not suffered any loss.  One could also make a case (in the US at least) that since he went on CNN he became a "pubic figure".  Very difficult to libel or slander a public figure. Free speech and all that.

 

Someone could call Trump an Orangutan and get away with it. In fact someone did just that more or less.  Plus the fact that unless someone states they have proof that he is a Pedo it would obviously just be an "opinion".  Now, if Britain doesn't have free speech laws things may be different. 

 

I hope he does sue Musk just to see if he has a case.  And then I hope Musk sues him to see if he has a case.
