Rupert Murdoch, News Corp CEO, attacked with pie during phone-hacking scandal hearing (Video)

Rupert Murdoch, the chairman and CEO of News Corp, was seemingly attacked by a protester wielding a shaving foam pie while he was giving his testimony on the phone-hacking scandal before the British lawmakers Tuesday.

The protester apparently hit Murdoch in the face with cream while reportedly shouting, “You are a greedy billionaire.”

Murdoch's wife Wendi Deng was quick to defend her husband. She swung at the foam attacker and then fell to the floor.

Moments later, the police arrested the attacker.

The incident prompted the parliamentary committee to call a recess.
