Jury finds Elon Musk did not defame British cave explorer

An LA jury found that Elon Musk did not defame a British cave explorer when he called him ’pedo guy’. Musk had defended the tweet saying the attack was unprovoked and he only meant the term as an insult for ’creepy old man’ and wasn’t literally calling Unsworth a pedophile. Unsworth’s attorney suggested to a federal jury that it award $190 million in damages.

This is a very dangerous precedent. The defence was he said as an insult. Has anyone seen the crap on Twitter people write? One of the richest men in the world is so thin skinned he goes after a angry guy in his livingroom? Musk routinely abuses social media "We've got the funding" tweet that made him millions and didn't get him removed from the CEO position. He can abuse everyone with lies, and one guy is angry on Twitter and he sues for 160 million. Musk wants the dismantling of the media, so the wealthy can 1984 everyone into submission.
