Tesla co-founder Elon Musk said Tuesday at the beginning of his defamation trial at a California court that his calling a British caver “pedo guy” on Twitter was in response to an unprovoked insult.

Vernon Unsworth, who participated in the famous rescue efforts for a soccer team trapped in a cave in Thailand in 2018, filed a lawsuit against Musk, seeking at least $75,000 in damages and claiming that his name has been defamed by the billionaire. EFE-EPA
