Jordan Belfort, whose memoir inspired the Oscar-nominated film The Wolf of Wall Street, was pretty unhappy with the line of questioning during a recent taping of the Australian edition of 60 Minutes. So unhappy, in fact, that he stormed off the set. In this clip, Belfort becomes enraged when reporter Liz Hayes suggests that his latest business dealings in Australia may be shady.
Belfort - who was convicted of criminal fraud for swindling unsuspecting investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars - simply cannot believe the implications of Hayes' questions, and after walking off set, can be heard saying, "You've got a lot of nerve...I was told this was going to be a friendly, nice interview. No one has ever treated me as disrespectful as you have."
And that's coming from a guy who spent nearly two years in a federal prison. So...
Because he didn't like the questions. Wolf of Wall Street, indeed.
