Rupert’s hearing with the House of Commons Select Committee turned violent as a man attempted to attack Rupert and throw a plate with foam on the tycoon, whose wife Wendi physically came to his defense.
Rupert Murdoch was already having one of the worst days of his life testifying before Parliament when he found himself being attacked by a man carrying what appeared to be an unknown white substance, perhaps pie filling or shaving cream. While Rupert’s son James, 38, seemed a bit timid during the attack, wife Wendi Deng Murdoch was the exact opposite, jumping to her feet and quickly hitting her husband’s attacker!
Following the attack the hearing was briefly suspended, but Rupert returned minutes later minus his suit coat after most of the room had been cleared out. As for who hit Rupert, 80, various twitter reports claim it is a man named “Jonnie Marbles,” a man who quickly felt the wrath of 42-year-old Wendi. Jonnie tweeted, “It is a far better thing that I do now than I have ever done before #splat.”
