Ian Poulter Slated For British Airways Tweet

Won't somebody please think of the children? Ian Poulter went all Helen Lovejoy on Friday when he moaned that British Airways had downgraded his nanny from business class for her flight back home, plunging his wife into a mid-flight crisis.

"Katie has no help for 10 hours with 4 kids," the flamboyant Poulter moaned on Twitter. The responses were not sympathetic.

To Poulter's credit, perhaps, the multimillionaire golfer stood by his original tweet, even in the face of the growing firestorm.

Know for his rather colourful outfits, the Twitter profile picture of the self-proclaimed 'massive Arsenal fan' featuring not one, or two, but six outrageously expensive Ferrari sportscars probably didn't help his calls for sympathy.
