Rupert Murdoch Attacked With Shaving Cream During Testimony (Video)

July 19, 2011

The Rupert Murdoch scandal was taken to a whole new level today when Murdock was attacked with shaving cream while he was giving his testimony. Oh yes you read it correctly shaving cream my friends.

Jonnie Marbles clearly had a beef with Murdoch as he has been identified as the guy who decided to hit the News Media Corp owner in the face with shaving cream. He also yelled a profane sentence as he smacked Rupert in the face with a pie tin full of shaving cream. A five minute break was taken immediately while Marbles was taken into custody. Murdoch was unharmed.

Now when you watch the video you have to pay close attention to what is going on or you will miss the whole incident which mostly takes place in the bottom left hand corner of the video. I actually had to watch it a couple of times before I really get to see what happened. Oh and you can’t even see Rupert’s face just the back of his head. It is all very interesting.

In case you are living in a bubble Rupert Murdoch was testifying in front of a British parliamentary panel regarding the phone hacking scandal with his no longer in existence British newspaper News of the World. It recently came out that the newspaper got exclusive stories by hacking into people’s phones. Basically Murdoch and his son James are trying to clarify and do damage control on what is no doubt a highly embarrassing situation their company has found itself in.

Although the whole scandal is very serious what happened today is kind of funny. I mean really shaving cream in the face, hysterical and I can say that because no one was hurt. It certainly isn’t the way most of us would get our point a cross but it seemed to have done the trick for Jonnie Marbles.
