NewsHub Reports on Elon Musk’s Distasteful Comment, Promotes Crypto Scam in Process

Elon Musk Apologizes for Distasteful Comment Made to Thai Cave Diver, Cryptocurrencies Randomly Introduced?

A football team consisting of 12 Thai boys and their coach recently made headlines, as they were stuck in a cave for 13 days. Fortunately, with the help of British diver, Vernon Unsworth, the team has been rescued, admitted at the hospital and finally released on good health. Nonetheless, Elon Musk’s comment charged at Unsworth had many furious. Since the reactions, Musk took to his Twitter account to openly apologize to the diver.

According to the claims made, Musk supposedly offered divers to use his mini-submarine, however, this was refused. Unsworth voiced his opinion with CNN, where he said that Musk was simply offering help for “nothing more than a PR stunt – He can stick his submarine where it hurts.”

After hearing the statements made, Musk accused Unsworth of being a “pedo” and that being the sole reason why he took interest to helping the 13 stuck in the cave. This comment was removed at the same speed it was made!

Musk took to his social platform to elaborate as to why he made such a comment along with an apology directed to Unsworth. In particular, he said “my words were spoken in anger after Mr. Unsworth said several untruths & suggested I engage in sexual act with the mini-sub, which had been built as an act of kindness”. His understanding of it all being sexual comes from Unsworth comment, which emphasized: sticking it where it hurts.

He also shared that he should have not made such a comment, despite Unsworth’s comments – ultimately claiming that he and no one else is responsible and at fault.

How does the Introduction of Cryptos Play into this?

While the discomfort between Musk and Unsworth seems to have been somewhat sorted out, a new confusion has quickly sparked. Newshub, who also reported the story proposed the following:

“He then posted a link to a giveaway where people can allegedly win cryptocurrency, as a cool way to make amends with anyone who feels offended.”

Anyone reading this will quickly assume that Musk has decided to give away cryptocurrencies to completely ignore his ignorant comment. However, this is not the reality, that is, according to many Twitter users and crypto fanatics. It was actually a very popular cryptocurrency scam that is very prevalent on Twitter.

A particular Twitter user, @mikeinspace, was quick to realize the last sentence in Newshub’s reporting sharing:

Another Twitter user, @adam3us replies to @mikeinspace stating that Newshub made a mistake and that Musk has nothing to do with it.

@WhalePanda shared a similar post to @mikeinspace, expressing that:

Whether or not Newshub was successful in identifying the error is unclear, but it has managed to feed into newer assumptions to date! Unfortunately, this isn't the first time a major publication accidentally promoted a scam:
