I think she had a good point about kid's names, what has happened to them? every parent wants to call their child something 'different', at the swing park yesterday the names being called out were "Cody, Kirky, Struan, Harley, Tad, and I kid you not, Honda! There must have been at least three Tylers, plus another Tyler in next doors garden when I got home, I live 2 doors down from a Teigan and a Shan, all horrible names.

I actually agree with Katie.

Names like Teighan and Kloeigh are horrific (my friend has kids named that) and urgh, horrific.

Of course she won't regret what she said! It got her the attention she craves! Desperate.

I am totally and completely sick of this woman. My issue is how she behaves, which is far worse than what she says. Even for a troll she takes it all to another level. I hope people just loose interest and programmes will stop booking her. It's all beyond boring now.

But she's so difficult to avoid. I can easily give This Morning or Daybreak a miss but she pops up on the radio all of the time. Unfortunately she is the current gob of choice.

She's of the Samantha Brick mold,but on TV, not the papers. Progs will book her for the ratings factor but eventually the public will get bored of her.
Right now we are all feeding the troll...

I know. It's despicable the media are FORCING her opinions onto people whether we want to know or not. It seems like any concept of shame, dignity or basic decency is long gone when programmes are happy to book the likes of Katie Hopkins just for a fleeting bit of attention.

That IS funny.

Really, why would anyone allow themselves to get outraged over her spewings? She's a troll on a very transparent mission.

No point in complaining about her while creating threads about her and giving her what she wants.

What I find most disturbing about her is the size of her head. It's ginormous.

And the radio and the papers. At least Brick had her 5 minutes of fame and seems to have disappeared back to France.

Have you seen her twitter? She is actually really funny and a bit of a WUM.

I agree with her on the name thing too to an extent. As soon as I hear some names, I see Vicky Pollard.

If she's not going to apologize for that "romp" in a field, or stealing someone else's husband, or inflicting the names "India", "Poppy" and "Max" on her poor children, she's not going to apologize for the embarassing way she keeps blurting out her offensive & manufactured "opinions", is she?

My husband is called Shan - he's Indian and I think it's a beautiful name!

I still think it's a wind-up just to promote herself. She gets paid to say this stuff, go on shows, write columns or whatever she does. There's no way she believes the stuff about disliking children with strange, contrived names when one of her own children is called 'India'. She's taking the pi*s!

There are names that make me recoil and, yes, stereotype...but the difference between me and Katie is I keep my unkind thoughts to myself and I'm aware I'm being too judgemental.

Katie is just an attention seeking troll. We really need to stop feeding her.

Discussed this character in the Wright Stuff thread. I'll just recap my comments:

This Katie woman is repellent, but one gets the sense that she's over-egging the pudding a bit in her desire to become one of those 'love to hate' TV personalities. Unfortunately, she's only getting it half right.

She goes for the easy targets: people and groups which she can mock and belittle without fear of legal reprisals. That way, she gets a 'Miss Nasty' media-image (which is really the only thing that seems to keep her on television and in the news) without landing herself in the dock.

Everything about her is deeply unpleasant - from the public image she consciously cultivates to the way she goes about it.

Why would anyone encourage this attention-seeking hatemonger to peddle her wares? I'm sure Wright knew full well she'd be using the platform of his show to court controversy and continue building a media reputation. Then again, perhaps he thinks it might boost ratings, given the recent media outcry provoked by her bile on This Morning.

One really must wonder about the mentality of someone who is so desperate for fame and a media career that they willingly attempt to become as 'hated' as possible (within the law, of course). The more negative the attention, the more she thinks she'll earn, I guess.

We picked the name Tyler for our son 13 years ago and don't regret it, yes it's more popular now but it's NOT an awful name and actually Hopkins (vile woman) he has just done his sats and came top of the whole school even getting level 6 in maths which was only ever an experiment to see if he could achieve it, stick that in your pipe.

Stop paying attention to her and she'll wither and die.

Why should she be sorry for anything? She hasn't murdered anyone! Either agree with her or ignore her. Why are so many people getting "outraged"?

I think she's just after a reaction. You can see that she loves it when people start laughing at her outrageous views. I honestly don't believe half the stuff she says. She just comes across as wanting reactions and laughs by being controversial. I don't think she honestly has these views herself. I'm not convinced by her.
