Tesla boss Elon Musk has reached an settlement with a Colorado potter who accused the billionaire of the use of his farting unicorn without permission.

Tom Edwards did not specify what precisely had been agreed – pronouncing best that the problem were resolved “in some way that everyone feels excellent approximately”.

Mr Musk tweeted Mr Edwards’ unique whimsical image on a mug remaining year.

Similar images of farting unicorns had been later used in Tesla in-car interfaces and promotional material.

Mr Edwards stated this was done without his permission.

It used to be the primary of two high profile Twitter spats Mr Musk has got into within the last few weeks.

Mr Musk were given in trouble in advance this month after calling a British cave diver “pedo man” in a row over the rescue of the younger football group in northern Thailand.

He later apologised and mentioned he had “spoken in anger” after Vern Unsworth ridiculed a mini-submarine he had commissioned for the rescue attempt as a “PR stunt”.

Mr Unsworth has mentioned he would possibly sue for being known as a “paedophile”.

Mr Edwards, then again, used to be more forgiving it appears.

“It Is transparent there were a few misunderstandings that resulted in this escalating, but I Am just glad that the whole lot has been cleared up,” he wrote in a submit on his company web page, later shared by means of Mr Musk.

“I Have always been a Tesla fan, and i’m looking forward to getting back to creating pots and promoting them.”
