Many were upset with Murdoch's use of "congrats" in reference to his paper's coverage of the event, which saw two hostages killed.

Gonna be ace when Rupert Murdoch dies. Hopefully someone will be there to report on the outcome. #Congrats.

Who is Rupert Murdoch congratulating?

Dear Sydney, please don't buy the Telegraph today. Murdoch should honour your compassion, not profit from your grief.
