The Los Angeles Times brings us this important story of a very nice lady — the world’s wealthiest! — explaining to poor people to shut up and eat their fucking gruel:
Just in case you were beginning to think rich people were deeply misunderstood and that they feel the pain of those who are less fortunate, here’s the world’s wealthiest woman, Australian mining tycoon Gina Rinehart, with some helpful advice.
“If you’re jealous of those with more money, don’t just sit there and complain,” she said in a magazine piece. “Do something to make more money yourself — spend less time drinking or smoking and socialising, and more time working.”
But wait, because it gets better! (Of course it does.)
In other news, Rinehart — who inherited her $30 billion — says people are poor because the minimum wage is too high. If anything, it just makes too much sense! [LAT]
