Wendi Murdoch Slaps Pie Thrower in Parliament (Video)

Wendi Murdoch Defends Husband Rupert From Pie in Parliament

Rupert Murdoch's wife, Wendi, leapt out of her seat today when a man hurled what looked like a pie at her husband during his testimony in Britain's parliament. As the attack on the 80-year-old News Corps CEO went down, Wendi made contact with the attacker in the slap seen 'round the world. "Wendi Murdoch" has now reached worldwide Twitter trending topic status.

The scene in the British parliament was already tense today as Rupert Murdoch and his son James came to testify about their role in the News of the World phone hacking scandal. During the questioning, Rupert's wife, Wendi, sat seething right behind him, but she was ready to go at the sign of danger. Left-wing activist and comedian Jonnie Marbles is taking credit for the attack, and whoever did it will likely face assault charges. Watch it go down above.

That video is amazing. What I don't understand is how he got a pie in there. I remember taking a field trip to the Parliament of Canada and security was TIGHT! We couldn't bring anything with us and somehow this guy managed to sneak in a pie and get that close to Rupert. My guess is, A LOT of people who saw him with it let it slide because they wanted Rupert to get pied.

The adult in me is very disapproving- but the inner child is cheering! Personally, with the way the world is set up- a pie in the face is probably the only punishment he'll get... oh, and probably a fine. 5 million out of his billions (like fining me for five bucks) or something of the sort.

I’ve never understood the point of pie-ing people like Murdoch. It’s an impotent protest of very serious wrongdoing.
