Rupert Murdoch

Leave Prince Harry Alone!

Rupert Murdoch
's got Prince Harry's naked back ... telling the world to give the young royal a break over his recent Vegas scandal -- not surprising, since Murdoch defied the Royals by publishing the pics.

Murdoch tweeted Saturday night, "Prince Harry. Give him a break. He may be on the public payroll one way or another, but the public loves him, even to enjoy Las Vegas."

TMZ broke the story ... the prince was photographed bare-ass playing billiards in Las Vegas this week and the photos quickly made the rounds all over the world. But the Royal Family was none too happy and pressured/banned British media outlet from publishing the pics.

Enter "The Sun" -- one of Murdoch's many media companies -- which published the nudie pics anyways.

Well played.

I agree What is the big deal, he isnt married or even got a girlfriend and he is very nice looking, Diana would be proud her boy is having harmless fun.

Murdoch s one to talk about leaving a celebrity (or royal) alone. That douche bag is originator of sleazebag journalism.

Quit milking this!!! You have to show this picture over and over, each day, with some new caption or story. We get it.....you broke the story.....not let it go and move on.

Why shouldn't the Sun run the pictures? Is the royal family trying to turn the UK into a police state?

Definition of a Douche Bag: someone who tweets to leave someone alone, only after he has made the money publishing the pictures in his so-called "newspaper". I believe in this case it makes them a Royal Douche Bag.
