Murdoch Calls Celebs Whose Phones His Company Hacked “Scumbags”
Rupert Murdoch has tough words for the celebrities whose phones his company hacked.
In a tweet, the multimillionaire media mogul described phone hack victims as “scumbags” as they met with Prime Minister David Cameron over the scandal.
Murdoch is the CEO and Chairman of News Corp., the company behind the Wall Street Journal, Fox TV, and Fox News among many other newspapers and television outlets.
British celebrities like Hugh Grant and Charlotte Church are pushing for an independent regulator who would assess fines for violations of privacy.
Many celebrities have been revealed as the victims of phone hacking by private investigators hired by News Corp.’s now-defunct News of the World, including Sienna Miller, Jude Law, and reportedly Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Several Murdoch employees at News Corp. have been arrested in connection to the hacking, including trusted lieutenant Rebekah Brooks.
