Australia’s richest woman Gina Rinehart has hit back at comedian Celeste Barber who’s raised $47 million in less than a week for the bushfire appeal, saying she’s more concerned about the “true cause” of the fires.
Earlier this week, Ms Barber called out billionaires, asking why they’re not donating to help the Australian bushfire crisis.
She directly tweeted at billionaire Ms Rinehart, who has a net worth of about $14 billion, writing: “If you’re in Hawaii on a family holiday I’m going to flip a f***ing table”.
However, a spokesman for Mrs Rinehart has now issued a statement saying the wealthy mining magnate prefers to donate privately.
