Poor things Nobody said she was poor.
This action is grossly unfair to almost everybody: trying to punish someone with 4% holdings while punishing 96% of the remaining owners --- widows and orphans that have Heinz stock in their portfolios. And also punishing thousands men and women working for the company. And those working for the suppliers of that company. And their families as well.
This is nothing but a mob action. It is very saddening to see that so-called conservatives take sides and spit at basic American values.
