Everyone knew he was thinking it-nowthat he's behind bars, the once-silent Bernie Madoff is freely expressing himself after his $65 Billion Ponzi scheme-"Fuck my victims" says Madoff, in a New York magazine interview from prison.
New York magazine's got a June cover story that's going to fly off those shelves: Bernie Madoff's life in prison. Somewhat of a celebrity behind bars, Madoff's bullied and judged by fellow inmates in the North Carolina prison facility where Bernie's serving 150 years for orchestrating what is deemed the "the most devastating Ponzi scheme in history."
And the once-silent Madoff's got some words for his Ponzi Scheme victims-obviously felt by the prisoner, if not previously voiced; New York magazine reports:
"But that evening [at the prison] an inmate badgered [Bernie] Madoff about the victims of his $65 billion [Ponzi] scheme, and kept at it. According to K. C. White, a bank robber and prison artist who escorted a sick friend that evening, [Bernie] Madoff stopped smiling and got angry. "Fuck my victims," he said, loud enough for other [prison] [m inmates to hear. 'I carried them [the Ponzi Scheme victims] for twenty years, and now I'm doing 150 years [prison time]'."
New York magazine reports that, in more subdued times, Bernie Madoff seems "hardened, cold": 
Responding to whether taking advantage of old ladies was "kind of fucked up," Madoff's matter-of-fact response, "Well, that's what I did," Madoff seems to take pride in his idea, "That he isn't a rat--he's tried to take all the blame for his Ponzi scheme--and [because he] isn't a child molester [it] counts in his favor." Well, it counts at least in prison.
Madoff posed for bank robber White, the prison artist, who's black. Madoff even signed White's sketch, breaking his rule, says White, who secretly wrote on Madoff's collar: FUCK MY VICTIMS.
