The defamation trial of Elon Musk may be going to the Jury by the time Thursday ends after Musk who is among the richest and most influential people in the world and the diver who has sued him were in conflict over the impact and meaning of a tweet which called the diver “pedo guy.”
The cave explorer from Britain, a man by the name of Vernon Unsworth has on Wednesday testified that he felt he was being branded a pedophile by Musk in that tweet. Musk though asserted that “pedo guy” as an expression in the tweet referring to Unsworth was not supposed to be taken in a literal sense.
The appearance of Unsworth in a federal courtroom in Los Angeles had come only a few hours after the CEO of Tesla, Musk had concluded his testimony which lasted two days of seeking to minimize the offhand comments he sends out through his tweets.
However, Unsworth who was extremely emotional had said that the remarks of Musk about him on the social media platform had left him feeling ashamed dirty and humiliated.
He said that ever since that tweet, he was given a sentence for life and he finds it hurtful to even talk about it. Through this lawsuit, Unsworth is seeking damages against Musk.
Neither Musk nor Unsworth is likely to testify this Thursday. This trial is expected to get wrapped up this Thursday after video testimony from the separated wife of Unsworth. His wife is also an internet expert on Musk’s tweets and the impact they have.
Unsworth who is 64 years of age said that he began caving as a hobby in the year 1971.
