Elon Musk Won't Attend Burning Man Amid Tesla Turmoil

Elon Musk Won't Attend Burning Man Amid Tesla Turmoil

In a letter Wood sent to Musk on August 6 reviewed by Business Insider, Wood writes that Musk made "false and defamatory statements" suggesting Unsworth is a paedophile.

In his tweets published on Tuesday, Musk appeared to suggest it was suspicious that he had not yet been sued and again called for his claim to be investigated. Replying to a person's tweet about the incident, Musk on Tuesday said, "You don't think it's unusual [Unsworth] hasn't sued me?"

Mr Musk responded with a series of tweets, casting doubt on Mr Unsworth's character without providing supportive evidence.

The tweet was in response to the user after he said it would have been "wonderful" if the SpaceX founder and Tesla CEO applied his "dedication to facts and truth" when he called British diver Vern Unsworth - who helped rescue a Thailand soccer team trapped in a cave - a "pedo".

Wood invited Musk or his legal representatives to contact him to avoid a lawsuit. And on Wednesday came news that the National Labor Relations Board has filed a complaint alleging Musk broke USA labor laws when he tweeted in May about a union organizing effort at Tesla's Fremont, California, plant. Musk said on Friday that Tesla would remain public, but said he believed there was "more than enough funding" to take the company private.

Senator John McCain Dead At 81
The Vietnam News Agency said Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc sent a message of condolence to McCain's family and U.S. Senate leaders, while Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh paid respects to McCain at the embassy.

Musk started 17 days of drama when he tweeted on August 7 that he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private, without sharing evidence that investor money was indeed lined up. "He was offered free legal services", Musk wrote on Tuesday. "According to a subsequent Twitter post, you did so out of anger".

Ferguson is only one of thousands of Tesla bears who use Twitter to crowdsource financial data, photos, satellite imagery and video footage of Tesla facilities to shed light on the company's production and sales figures to support their view that the stock is overvalued.

"He's not going to become a typical CEO, so the question is whether he's going to make statements that run afoul of securities laws", said Ken Bertsch, an executive director at the Council of Institutional Investors, a trade group that represents public pension funds that own Tesla shares.

But Musk's decision to continue to respond to critics on Twitter indicates he won't change easily, said Charles Elson, a University of DE finance professor who specializes in corporate governance.
