Elon Musk cleared of defaming British caver over 'pedo guy' tweet

Elon Musk did not defame British caver Vernon Unsworth, who helped in last year's rescue of trapped Thai schoolboys, by calling him a 'pedo guy', a US jury has found. A jury deliberated for less than an hour before agreeing with Mr Musk. Speaking minutes after the verdict was announced, a jubilant Mr Musk said: “My faith in humanity is restored.” A despondent Mr Unsworth was accompanied by members of his legal team as he gave his reaction to the jury’s decision and said he would “take it on the chin”.
