Victoria Beckham becomes center of criticism

Amidst troubled times, wife of football star lays off 30 employees from her clothing line and worse, requests state aid for 80 per cent compensation for the redundees. A shallow move, many say, considering the former Spice Girl’s sizeable assets and net worth. She has garnered massive criticism from all sides over her actions, from fans, social media as well as media. Piers Morgan, one of the UK’s most famous presenters: “Sorry, but this aid scheme is not for billionaires like you two. All they do is run a famous vanity business that does not make money. Why don’t you go into your own pockets instead of taxpayers’ pockets? The Beckhams don’t need protection, they can pay their own staff,” he said on Good Morning Britain.
