Meh when I was a youngster everything was porno or pedo something or other.
I think he is reaching a little with this one but I get where he is coming from, I have heard it used a lot in different circles.
Maybe he should have called him a pedo bear, then it would have made more sense.

Edit NM -thanks Supersunbird
The article: Unsworth said in a television interview that the mini-submarine, which ultimately wasn’t used in the rescue, was a “PR stunt” and that Musk could “stick his submarine where it hurts.”

At first I thought BS. But now I've heard pedo moustache before.

Typical case of a nerd, someone socially awkward getting a commonly used phrase that they heard somewhere wrong.

Was frequently used on ZAnet, Shadowfire and Blabbernet. In the IRC days. You guys that deny it was probably never tech savvy back then.
Was a regular on two of those networks and never saw/heard it either.

Musk & friends probably circle jerk to some pedo jokes each night and cum up with this sht.

Either way, no its not a common insult. Literally never heard it before. Attention seeking whore

Maybe in Elon Musk's demented world. But generally its really not acceptable at all, and he should be held accountable for even saying it on social media.
