Elon Musk is well-known for his commitment to the public forum Twitter. His comments to fans are his way of addressing supporters and the public. Sometimes those comments can get out of hand, though, or at least they are alleged to be out of hand.

Back in 2018, Musk gave a comment that left the public in distaste and especially the person/s who were on the receiving end. Tesla's CEO allegedly abused a British diver, Vernon Unsworth, calling him a 'pedo guy' and also abused a BuzzFeed reporter. Unsworth is now taking Musk to court, and the US District Court has said that they will hear his suit.

Unsworth said that Musk's efforts to rescue children in Thailand were a mere "PR stunt" and Musk's intelligence of the caves the children were trapped in was below par. In response to Unsworth's critics of Musk's methods, Musk called Unsworth a "pedo-guy" and Unsworth followed up with the response "stick his submarine where it hurts." The United States District Court in Los Angeles will commence hearing the suit on December 3rd.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
