Move over, Martin Shkreli. The internet has grabbed its pitchforks and has a new person to hate.
Televangelist Joel Osteen is now the target of a massive amount of online wrath after he was slow to help the citizens of Houston, where he owns a MEGACHURCH which can seat 16,000 people.
As it became clear that the city was experiencing devastating flooding from Harvey, the filthy rich preacher's Lakewood Church posted to Facebook on Sunday saying it was "inaccessible due to severe flooding!"
The fine citizens of Houston called out the church, posting pictures to social media that showed the church was not flooded.
While the church has since opened its doors to victims of the storm who've been displaced from their homes, the damage to Joel Osteen's reputation has been done — and he's currently one of the most hated people on the internet.
Osteen is now officially the "Littlefinger of Houston."
His Wikipedia page was briefly updated to reflect how some felt about his actions.

The church was also criticized for using the disaster as a way to boost its donations.

And some even pointed out that Osteen has a private jet. Must come in handy when escaping disaster.

Others pointed out just how damn rich the man is.

The lessons here? Practice what your preach, or social media will shame you — and they won't forget even after you try to right your wrong.
