Speaking to CNN, a British driver involved in the rescue of the boys' soccer team in Thailand has expressed his feelings about entrepreneur Elon Musk, who had his engineering team design and build a small submarine for the rescue efforts.
The chief of the rescue operation also said that Musk's submarine was "not practical" for the mission.
Musk created a "kid-size submarine" and went to Thailand to assist in the rescue, but authorities ended up not needing his device.
Musk responded early this morning, New Zealand time, referring to Unsworth as "pedo guy" and saying he would make a video proving that the submarine was a viable rescue method.

British diver Vern Unsworth spoke with CNN on Friday about the rescue mission, where he labeled Musk's involvement a "PR stunt". "[Musk] had no conception of what the cave passage was like. It wouldn't have made it the first 50 meters into the cave from the dive start point". He also said that Musk was asked to leave the cave, saying that he shouldn't have been there.
"It just had absolutely no chance of working", Unsworth said.
"You know what, don't bother showing the video", Musk wrote.
