Elon Musk facing defamation trial for ’pedo guy’ tweet

Musk’s tweet in which he called a British man a ’pedo guy’ should not have been taken literally and was just a retaliatory insult, the billionaire told a federal court Tuesday. The Tesla CEO is being sued by Vernon Unsworth who was involved in the rescue of the Thai boys football team from a flooded cave in July 2018. Musk was asked to explain his comment to Unsworth which he made over a year ago.

How do you adjudicate something like this? Does Musk's side need to "prove" the guy is a pedophile or does that guy somehow have to prove he isn't?

Give me a break. Is he really not entitled to freedom of speech?
