Surprise: The Internet Hates Rich People
(CNN) — It’s no shock that people love to hate Facebook.
On Friday, for some, the emphasis shifted to hate as Facebook went public, turning its CEO into a billionaire and, as CNNMoney gracefully put it, making “thousands of millionaires” out of the rest of its staff and stockholders.
“Well most Americans are bitter and hateful toward anyone and anything more successful than themselves,” one commenter wrote on that story.
“Just me or anyone else really hoping for Facebook stock to take a nose dive and never come back up? I want to watch it drop like a rock,” one Twitter user wrote on the eve of Facebook’s initial public offering Thursday.
