Tesla CEO, Elon Musk told the court that his 'Pedo Guy' tweet was not meant for accusation. This statement came after the 64 years old diver Vern Unsworth sued Musk for defamation. Musk's lawyers stated that, where he grew up, "pedo" is commonly used to refer to a "creepy old man". I did not intend to accuse Mr Unsworth of engaging in acts of pedophilia, said Musk in the court. The defamation trial is scheduled for 2nd December.
