Elon Musk Won't Back Down On Cave Diver 'Pedo' Remark

Elon Musk renews 'pedo' controversy, asks if it's 'strange' the British diver hasn't sued

East Coast-based small business owner Paul Shust, who told Reuters he uses information posted on $TSLAQ FinTwit and has an options bets against Tesla, said he was so upset by Musk's August 7 tweet that he wrote to SEC Commissioner Kara Stein that day, according to an email seen by Reuters.

While the latest communiqués avoided any reference to the troubled auto company, his August 7 "funding secured" tweet indicating he had raised billions needed to take Tesla private at US$420 a share triggered the US Securities and Exchange Commission to intensify a pre-existing investigation into firm's public pronouncements on vehicle production forecasts and two class-action investor lawsuits.

For the record, my voice cracked once during the NY Times article.

@Latrilife, who asked to remain anonymous, told Reuters he started to scrutinize Tesla's auto production, distribution and sales after Musk refused to answer analysts' questions about profit potential and capital requirements on a conference call earlier this year.

Reports that emerged after the tweet and a statement from Musk suggested that, at the time of the tweet, he did not have legally binding agreements in place that would provide enough funding to convert Tesla into a private company.

Mr Unsworth subsequently said he might take legal action.

Musk told Olanoff that he found it unusual that Unsworth has not sued him, adding that Unsworth was even offered "free legal services". Generally, the SEC considers statements by executives to be material information that have to be true, and the comment prompted a subpoena from the regulator. Will Musk's remark lead to his entry into cryptocurrency? "Why?" Musk who is very vocal about his views on social media has often paid the price for it. The company's chairman and biggest shareholder deactivated his Instagram account last week.

Pearce said he saw Powell's comments as signaling that the central bank will continue raising rates gradually over the next year. The Fed in June increased interest rates for the second time this year, and pencilled in two more rate hikes for the year.

"Have you actually done any research at all?" he said.

"I am in the process of preparing a civil complaint for libel against you", the note reads.

To be sure, Musk's comments Tuesday didn't delve into topics that are likely to upset the SEC. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO is known for his innovation, but it's hard to tell if he will embrace blockchain technology anytime soon.

In a series of tweets, he asked the user that if he had investigated the matter at all. Tesla ended up building fewer than 3,000 Model 3s in last year's second half.

Mr Musk, however, has denied his use of the app was a distraction.

"A lot of these companies, their business models are about pushing the envelope on regulation", she said.
