Everybody’s a critic — including Bernie Madoff.
In an email to NBC News, Madoff took umbrage over ABC’s portrayal in a recent mini-series of his life and crime. The 77-year-old pleaded guilty in 2009 to running a Ponzi scheme and stealing $17.5 billion from investors. He is serving a 150-year sentence.
“I’m sure it is fruitless to enumerate the numerous fiction and absurd mischaracterization (sic) in the ABC movie,” he wrote. “However I have never been one to turn the other cheek. I will just cover those incidents that have drawn queries.”
First, “I have NEVER slapped my son Mark,” wrote Madoff.
