Elon Musk sent engineers to Thailand before traveling himself and working with his engineers to build a child-sized submarine that could assist the rescue operation.

Some have criticized his involvement as a PR stunt, and many joked after the submarine was deemed “not practical” by those leading the rescue mission.
He later posted conversations with the dive team that confirm the submarine was desired, and he is leaving the submarine there in case it can be of use in the future.
He has now commented on those criticizing him: “Something’s messed up if this is not a good thing.”

Elon Musk has hit back at those who have criticized his attempts to help recuse the 13 members of a Thai soccer team that were trapped in a cave for more than two weeks.

Musk tried to help in a variety of ways, including traveling to Thailand, sending engineers to the country and building a small, child-sized submarine.

He said on Twitter on Wednesday that the reaction has “shaken my opinion of many people.”
