The UK 'The Sun' is reporting that the 88 year old mother of UK cave diver Vernon Unsworth says American tech billionaire Elon Musk should be shot for falsely branding her son a 'pedo'.

Musk twittered the insult towards the cave expert after Unsworth branded the tycoon's offer to build a mini submarine to free the trapped Thai schoolboys a PR stunt. Unsworth was in Chiang Mai providing valuable skills and information into the delicate cave dive to retrieve the Mu Pa 13.

The Tesla boss has since apologised to 63 year old Unsworth, but his mum has clearly not forgiven Musk for what he said about her son. When asked about the "pedo" slur, Vera Unsworth said: “That’s stupid, that is the last thing he is. It’s disgusting, absolutely disgusting that.
