Musk was criticised by many, some of whom accused Musk of using his sizeable (22 million) Twitter following to incite ill will towards people, and others saying his comments were clearly libelous.
"You know what, don't bother showing the video", Musk wrote.
Billionaire Elon Musk lashed out at an English diver who helped rescue the Thai football team, calling him a "pedo", before eventually retracting his comments. Unsworth's knowledge of the Tham Luang cave, gleaned over what he says has been six years of exploration, helped locate the missing boys.
On Twitter, Musk responded to the reporter's piece.
However, Unsworth also added that while Musk and his team entered the cave to assist with the operation, they were asked very quickly to leave.
The accusation, presented without evidence or context, was directed at Vern Unsworth, a British cave explorer who recently said Musk's attempt to help the rescue effort was a "PR stunt". Musk had developed a mini-submarine created to deliver each child to safety, but Unsworth described in detail how the invention "had no chance of working". Unsworth said the mini-sub was too long and rigid for the cave conditions and that Musk had "no conception" of what the cave passages were like.
The chief of the rescue operation also said that Musk's submarine was "not practical" for the mission. "We will make one of the mini-sub/pod going all the way to Cave 5 no problemo".

In a series of tweets responding to a New York Times opinion writer who encouraged Musk to see the experience "as a lesson", Musk defended his submarine and vowed to share video of the project's success.
"Mini-sub is ready if needed".
Musk was quick to offer his help to the extensive team of global diving experts.
Musk fired back at this claim, saying the former provincial governor was "not the subject matter expert" and sharing his correspondence with leader of the dive rescue team Richard Stanton. "If the rain holds out it may well be used".
