London: British billionaire Alan Sugar invited a lot of criticism following his recent tweet about people working from home. According to him, people working from home should be brought back to the office or fired.

This all started with journalist Andrew Pierce, who tweeted about the government selling off Whitehall offices for £1.5 billion as people are working from home.

He wrote: Govt to sell off £1.5bn Whitehall offices left empty by working from home. Why doesn’t Govt order them back to their desks?

The billionaire quoted the tweet, and called people working from home “lazy gits.”

“Lazy gits watching golf and tennis at home while they supposed to be working. We the tax payer are paying the. Get them back to the office or fire them,” Sugar said.

Calling a Good Morning Britain report that touched upon raising the salary of people working from home, Rubbish. Sugar said, “they have to pay rent, heating and rates with or without a full work place. People should be paid less they are saving travel costs.”

In another post, the 72-year-old described remote workers as “lazy gits” and said that they “like” the life created by the pandemic. “What about nurses,doctors, cleaners, restaurant staff, builders and decorators, taxi and truck drivers they can’t work from home but provide the lazy gits a service,” he added.

However, in no time, his views were countered by many Twitter users. One user replied saying:“It is amazing how far behind you are with current times, considering you are a billionaire.”

Another user said that his claims were “absolutely insulting” to people working hard from home throughout the pandemic and beyond.

“Lord Sugar does not like people working from home while he works from home (wee, his yacht). On rule for the poor and different rules for the rich,” wrote one user.
