CHEF MARCO’S SON SNEERS: RICH DON’T DIE AS THEY DON’T TAKE TUBE

Daily Mail - - Terror On The Tube -

THE son of chef Marco Pierre White caused out­rage when he posted a vile tweet about the ter­ror at­tack.

Marco Pierre White Jr mocked pas­sen­gers caught up in the bomb blast, sug­gest­ing that was why he doesn’t ‘take the tube’– adding that ‘the rich don’t die’.

He tweeted: ‘Par­sons Green tube sta­tion this morn­ing was tar­geted by ter­ror­ists, this is why I don’t take the tube #theRichDon­tDie.’

The re­al­ity TV star – whose fa­ther has an es­ti­mated for­tune of around £30mil­lion – deleted the of­fen­sive tweet just a minute later, but was crit­i­cised by other so­cial me­dia users for his ‘lack of hu­mil­ity’.

The 22-year-old later apol­o­gised in an­other tweet, say­ing: ‘I apol­o­gise for my tweet this morn­ing, it was in­sen­si­tive & ig­no­rant. My thoughts & prayers are with those af­fected & in­jured by the at­tack.’

It is not the first time he has mocked those who take pub­lic trans­port. Last week he tweeted: ‘Lol I just heard the un­der­ground has been de­layed ... this is the rea­son I don’t min­gle with the peas­ants.’
