If you don’t live under a rock then you have probably at least heard about the “News of the World” scandal. Basically, a British tabloid magazine owned by billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch was hacking into people’s cell phones: the woman who ran it is being charged, the whistleblower who alerted authorities about it is dead and blah, blah, blah…you get the idea. But that’s neither here nor there. This is about what happened just today: that same billionaire got pied in the face while he was in Parliament to testify.
The attacker tweeted this right before the attempted pie-ing:
Apparently this guy wanted to teach Murdoch a lesson about hacking into people’s shit, so he pied him in the face? I don’t see how pies and high-profile media-tech scandals are related, but okay, I’ll take it. Unfortunately, the would-be pie-assailant, named Jonnie Marbles (no relation to YouTube personality and all-around hottie Jenna Marbles) only ended up getting most of the pie on himself, leaving Rupert with little more than some cream on his shoulder. I hear that a lot of shenanigans go on in British Parliament, but this takes the cake…or pie.
