Everyone’s favourite out-of-touch media tycoon has done it again.
The Twittersphere has reacted in the only way the Twittersphere knows how: with users around the world sending Murdoch hilarious, witty smackdowns in response.
Celebrities including Harry Potter author JK Rowling and comedians Aziz Ansari and Adam Hills led the charge by posting these gems:
Ansari followed up his original post with some important questions for Murdoch:
“Rups can we get a step by step guide? How can my 60 year old parents in NC help destroy terrorist groups? Plz advise…Are you responsible for the evil s–t all Christians do or just the insane amount of evil you yourself contribute to?”
The hashtag #RupertsFault quickly caught on, with users blaming the 83-year-old for everything from the assassination of John Lennon to the inexplicable popularity of The Big Bang Theory.
The Mamamia Women’s Network’s own Alyx Gorman even got in on the action:
Fellow Ruperts have also been blamed for failing to control the media baron’s dangerous extremism.
Never change, Twitter.
