Wealthy Americans adverse to paying higher taxes may have found a new enemy in famous novelist Stephen King, who lashed out at his fellow high income earners Monday afternoon for complaining about a possible increase in their rates.
In a brutally candid and colorful op-ed column for The Daily Beast, King was relentless in his criticism of rich people upset over tax increases and Republican figures who defend them.
“Tough shit for you guys, because I’m not tired of talking about it,” King said. “I’ve known rich people, and why not, since I’m one of them? The majority would rather douse their dicks with lighter fluid, strike a match, and dance around singing ‘Disco Inferno’ than pay one more cent in taxes to Uncle Sugar.”
