There’s something to be said about money and love. We know that money can’t buy it, we know that money can’t buy friends – and yet, it seems that money can buy hate. A lot of it in fact. Normally, this kind of hated is misplaced by people who simply wish that they were rich as well. It may be petty but it’s somewhat more understandable. But what about the others? Today, we present a list of hated billionaires and why they’re hated.
10. Rupert Murdoch
Let’s start with a name most of us know. But where do we even begin? Murdoch is a famous Australian media tycoon, has been seen as a generally repulsive man who’s concentrated his wealth to being flat out obnoxious. Murdoch stands accused being a race baiter in general conversation, spreading misinformation in the media, and creating monopolistic companies that consume everything in sight. Still not convinced? Okay, well how about the time when he tweet out what he considered a joke about an obese woman who fell through a New York sidewalk, asking if she got fat from food stamps and welfare. Generally cruel person to be sure and worth over $11 billion.
