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