(CNN) – Who would have guessed the day after James and Rupert Murdoch testified before a UK parliamentary committee, we’d be talking about Wendi?

And yet, here we are. The “slap heard round the world” is the talk of the town (or at least of Twitter). And so is Rupert Murdoch’s third wife Wendi Deng, who batted away the protester who tried to throw a shaving cream pie at  her husband – reacting even faster than security guards.

U.S. news anchor Katie Couric tweets: “Wow wendy murdoch giving whole new meaning to the term tiger mother...insanity!.”

This from comedian Andy Borowtiz: “After today's #Murdoch hearings, British politicians are no longer afraid of Rupert, but are terrified by Wendi.”

And more from the public. Some funny, some not (and some downright offensive.)  A Wendi Deng fan club on Facebook now has over 700 fans.
