Except that your statement was written to apply to ALL rich people. It didn't say that *some* rich people are greedy or that *some* rich people didn't get rich by being generous.

That's like saying "poor people didn't get poor by being hard workers" and then being surprised that people took it be offensive. Or to then say, "obviously not all or even most poor people are lazy, but if you are poor and lazy then I think it's a pretty fitting funny saying".

Of course you statement was offensive.
