Elon Musk’s Mates Try To Subtly Explain To Him That He’s Coming Across As A Bit Of A C–t

Close friends of South-African-Canadian-San-Fran-Ciscan entrepreneur and evangelist, Elon Musk, have today organised an intervention aimed at subtly informing the egotistical Afrikaan that he’s being a bit of a ■■■■.
This comes after Musk lashed out at a British diver involved in the dramatic rescue of a Thai soccer team and their coach after his offer of help was labelled a “PR stunt”.
After a few rounds of San Fran Cisco Bitter, Elon’s close mate, Wazza began tip toeing around the international headlines.
“Musky, what’s this stuff that’s been going on with this diver. What’ve I been reading?” asks Wazza. Who knows very well what’s been happening, because it’s all been unfolding on Twitter.
Mr Musk went onto explain how he had made the unfounded slur of labelling the veteran diver a “pedo” in response to criticism to his offer of help for the boys trapped in the Thai cave.
The Tesla and SpaceX founder brought a mini submarine to Thailand, which he suggested could be used to get the boys out, but the idea was rejected by officials as “not practical” – because it was very clearly just an opportunity for Musk to promote his tech empire.
British diver Vern Unsworth, 63, a key member of the rescue team, shot down Mr Musk’s idea in an interview about the ordeal with CNN.
Mr Musk responded by making the unfounded claims about the veteran diver.
“He can stick his submarine where it hurts,” Mr Unsworth said.
“It had absolutely no chance of working. He had no conception of what the cave passage was like… Just a PR stunt.”
Speaking to the boys today, Musk revealed just how much it hurt to be criticised after a lifetime of being treated like an absolute matyr.
“He’s a ■■■■■■■… Ooooh look at me, I can rescue little kids with just a couple oxygen tanks” said Musk.
“You reckon you might be carrying on a bit” asked his other mate, Bevo.
“WHAT?!” shouted Elon.
At time of press, Elon’s old mates had spent two hours attempting to massage his ego, while subtly telling him that they kind of agree with the English diver.
