Then he will have the situation where he seems to accept Musks allegations uncontested .

   He has been accused and he will need to Court case to prove the allegations are unfounded

No guarantee he would win any Court libel case.

Very disgusting comment from Musk.... I'm not 'sus'  or a 'pedo' just because I choose to live in beautiful Thailand. Sue him,  give a bit to charity and enhance your retirement fund.

we only have your word for that but if you go to court and  show me Ill accept it..............see how nuts it is

Shares of Tesla Inc fell more than 3.5 percent on Monday, knocking almost $2 billion off the company's market value.

And after a brief knee-jerk reaction (probably algorithmic trading) the stock price rose higher than it had been before the brouhaha.

If good ol' Vern is really being serious about seeking counsel, the best advice right now is keep his OWN counsel and stop yapping to Reuters and the like. Someone up there who knows him should tell him to pull his head in.

Incorrect on both counts. He has already refuted the remarks in public, and the onus is not on Mr Unsworth to prove his innocence, but for a prosecutor to prove his guilt. The obvious absence of proof and resultant charges makes this very unlikely. I think the general public are smart enough to dismiss the petulance of a public figure (Mr Musk) who has thrown his toys out of his cot, so to speak.

Its  pretty clear to any sane person he isnt a paedophile his life wont be ruined it will be even more respected and even more so if  he  just lets it go

I do agree that the sane ones amongst us will respect Vern more, however, this will have an impact, as human nature dictates that a lot of people will see Musk's comments as gospel, a comment like this, made by somebody like Musk, holds weight with some people, that is fact and one of the many negatives of social media. 

These people have their followers on social media who, for whatever reason, simply believe everything they say without question and now because of Musk's malice comments Vern has to live with that for the rest of his life and this will make differences to it.

For example, it is like the teacher who gets accused of rape and acquitted, in reality the doubt will always remain in some peoples minds and usually it ends with them losing their career. 

Once an inference is made it is damn near impossible to remove and the more famous the person who makes it, the more impact it has.

UK tabloids have been doing it for years!

I think Vern wanted his 15 minutes of fame and then quickly discovered that his "indomitable spirit" can get crushed. Now he wants to open another Pandora's Box and doesn't understand the risk he and his reputation are taking.

Vern's indomitable spirit was also encapsulated in a Facebook post on the page of Thapanee Ietsrichai that showed him taping up split boots before getting on with the job and going back in the cave.

Has he ?

When did Musk do that ?

Simply deleted something isnt refuting it , he needs to publicly retract the allegation and to state that the allegations are untrue and unfounded

"i would worry about the ngo's who might add your photo to the international list of pedos"

 

so you wont mind  if i publish your photo online and call you a paedophile?

 

there is no point in suing somebody if they don't have any money.

do you have any money?

There seems to be some contradiction in your opinion? In regards to attention and I thank the Brit as I do everyone who took part in rescuing the boys and coach but what was the Brit doing on T.V. doing so many interviews, would interviews be considered attention?

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.

What Musk said was stupid and insulting. He should apologize. However, what Unsworth said was stupid and insulting. He should also apologize. To suggest that he (Unsworth) knows what was in the mind of Musk is insulting.  Only the Tarot card readers in Thailand know what is in the minds of people.

 

Musk didn't do it for publicity in my mind. This guy may be a jerk but he ain't stupid.  Why would he? He gets a billion dollars of publicity other ways. What if they used his contraption and someone died?  Think he didn't think of that?  You think that would be good for his businesses? Not a lot of bright bulbs here.  

 

Besides that you can go to any swimming pool in Tland and see at least one pedo playing with the kids. I've seen it many many times.  I've stopped it twice.  Must be a reason they all come to Tland. Wonder why?

 

As far as libel goes if the insurance companies are chasing him they are ambulance chasers looking for publicity.  Which is illegal in the USA, not sure about England or Australia.  So this guy would then be using a law firm that is doing what he (Unsworth) is accusing Musk of doing. Hmm

 

As far as the libel goes good luck with that.  Very difficult to prove and harder yet to show he has lost money due to the name calling.  

 

What he did also called free speech in America. You can even call Trump an orangutan like Bill Maher implied. Trump sued him and lost in court.

Apparently Vern Unsworth is taking advice from the British law firm Grabbit & Run, his contact there being Sue Ellen.

 

I heard he's gone with the US law firm of Dewey, Dewem and Howe.

 

Good luck to Vern: Musk is a loud mouthed boor and when people say his employees love him, that is probably true; but his investors and analysts, you know, the boneheads, are worried that he may well be in melt down.

haha Tesla went up 4 percent yesterday. Quite a meltdown. Maybe what Musk said will spur the cops in Tland to clamp down on all the Pedos that do live there and throw them in jail- a good thing.

He also had an interesting nibble from the established law firm across the pond... Dewey, Cheatem and Howe.
