"The term pedo guy' was a common insult used during Mr. Musk's youth in South Africa, which he understood was synonymous with creepy old man' and aimed at insulting one's appearance and demeanor," his attorney Alex Spiro said in a court filing. "The term pedo guy' as used and understood by Mr. Musk is not an accusation of acts of pedophilia."

Also Elon Musk in an email to Buzzfeed reporter:

"I suggest that you call people you know in Thailand, find out what's actually going on and stop defending child rapists, you ******* -------. He's an old, single white guy from England who's been traveling to or living in Thailand for 30 to 40 years, mostly Pattaya Beach, until moving to Chiang Rai for a child bride who was about 12 years old at the time. There's only one reason people go to Pattaya Beach, it isn't where you'd go for caves, but it is where you'd go for something else. Chiang Rai is renowned for child sex-trafficking."

Musk is an egomaniacal corporate welfare queen, but that's ok for his cult in this case, because he's allegedly "saving the planet".
