Rupert Murdoch’s tweet about food stamps and a 400-pound woman has created a controversy on social media.
Murdoch, known for his controversial tweets, weighed in on the story of a 400-pound woman who crashed through a New York City sidewalk.
In the tweet, Murdoch suggested the woman was 400-pounds because of welfare and food stamps.
How did fat lady who fell thru street get to 400 lbs? Welfare, stamps, etc? Then leave us all with 20yrs immense health bills. – @rupertmurdoch
Murdoch followed up the tweet with a clarification:
Did not mean to be unsympathetic to 400 lb lady, but fact remains unhealthy eating by rich and poor driving up premiums for all. – @rupertmurdoch
