No this is it

https://twitter.com/KTHopkins

I vowed after the very ignorant & superior way she dismissed children with Autism, ADHD etc as simply needing taken in hand or words to that effect, never to comment on her again.

However a friend of mine told me to take a look at the appalling comments she made regarding a young girl appearing in XFactor weight. I looked & was disgusted, the girl in question is slightly chubby but nothing imo to be concerned about.
The comments weren't lighthearted such as, "so & so would look better if she lost a few lbs" they were mean & nasty, along the lines of "so & so has come as the mermaid from fat club"
She continued rather sneeringly, to point out one of the girls from Little Mix had been eating too much Pick & Mix.

These comments are from a supposedly intelligent woman in her late 30s, who also happens to have young daughters.
What the actual f*** is she teaching them? That it's OK to poke fun at someone for their weight, that it's OK to ridicule kids who are young enough to be your children.

Aside from that, is she too bloody up her own a**e to see it's comments like this that can lead to eating disorders.

I used to think she was just a stupid troll but after reading her comments (& there were lots) it was quite clear, how much fun she was having being deliberately vile. The word bully gets thrown about too much imo but Katie Hopkins is nothing but a nasty, horrible bully.
I wish everyone would stop following her on Twitter, she was never asked to appear on another TV/Radio show & just disappeared off the face of this earth

ETA Sorry realised I've just pointed you out to the same Twitter account

After people burning an Effigy of Katie Hopkins, I don't give a rats arse what she says. I hope she makes more money than all of the people who took part in the Effigy burning put together, and I hope she laughs all the way to the bank.

People obviously LOVE getting wound-up by her and I find that far more irritating than Katie herself at this point, no matter what she comes out with.

Presumably you think it's OK for her to say this then?

Tanni Grey-Thompson. God I wish there were some carpet tacks lying about between her and the bbc studios.

Saw her being interviewed about the effigy & she was delighted about it, just more attention for her.

The comments she makes are deeply offensive, therefore, I doubt people can help but get by wound up her.

Thing is there are a lot of trolls on twitter posting not very nice stuff, but they are funny with it. Katie's attempts at humour are cringeworthingly unfunny, and so just come across as mean.

And what on earth is she doing watching the X Factor anyway? Doesn't seem to fit the image she's desperately trying to convey (sorry for any flowery words)

Indeed they are & yet it's blatantly obvious she puts a lot of thought into her deeply offensive comments.

Also for a woman with a busy career, she does spend a lot of time on Twitter, maybe the spare time she has would be better spent with her kids, then again, maybe not. Her poor kids are probably delighted with her obsession to be as rude & nasty as humanly possible, the more time she spends on Twitter, the more time they can escape her!

I don't think for one second she's being remotely serious. If I did, I'd be as aghast as the rest of you. I just can't believe more people aren't clued in that she's obviously doing this completely for shits and giggles. Okay, so THAT in iself is pretty deranged but if people stopped feeding her every single time she opened her gob she would go away. Yet the public seem to be living for the next thing she says, and the more it goes on the more outrageous Katie will get.

If she's doing it for 'shits and giggles' she must have a pretty twisted sense of humour. I don't think people like her would go away if the public stopped paying attention, as they enjoy the oxygen that publicity gives them, so they make more and more outrageous comments, people are outraged, they know they've got people wound up, make more outrageous comments, people are wound up, and so it goes on ad infinitum...........

What is her actual career does anyone know? She talks about her business but doesn't actually seem to say what she does

Well exactly! Ironically she's probably the kind of person that if you told her you'd spent the weekend watching X Factor and bitching about it on twitter would probably roll her eyes and call you a waster. And yet she's tweeting like a teenager. Totally at odds with her personality and I'm amazed it's actually her twitter account, not a Cheryl Kerl type parody

This is true but I think people are getting bored of her already. I did a long time ago, but decided to have a peek at this thread today thinking "good goddd is she still at it?" Eventhough its kind of like on TV shows when someone is waffling for ages then people lose interest and start to walk away, the when they finally finish talking they look up and realise they've been yakking away to themselves for the past 15 minutes lol

(Please no-one do it to me I know that paragraph is a bit heavy)

Whatever it was it is now professional troll. There's no way she has time to spout off as much as she does and be a rent-a-gobshite AND be a real business woman.

Probably not too long until This Morning have her on yet again.

Could not agree more!! She does it to get a reaction and everybody gives it to her!! It's all just tongue in cheek and most people are way to sensitive

No idea. I'm beginning to think her career is just a figment of her imagination.

I agree she says it to get a reaction, however not sure telling parents whose kids have special needs, that they need to take their kids in hand or making nasty, spiteful comments about a young girl's weight is particularly tongue in cheek.

She is a nasty cow at times.

She maybe a troll but her affairs have been very real, so has her destruction of other peoples marriages and the pain she inflicted on the children involved. And she was very real on The Apprentice when she shags one of the other contestants and was especially nasty to Kristina Grimes calling her " to orange to be taken seriously." She was slated then for her behaviour...
She does it because she lacks empathy and emotional intelligence. And she can't talk and arguement against her, without personal attacks. Now people either do take her seriously and thinks she speaks for the nation or think she is a troll because nobody could be that nasty...But she is that nasty. I remember a few years ago on a late-night radio show, she saying how wonderful this recession is because it means companies can lay people off...

I wouldn't agree that people are too sensitive, I think they just either can't see they are being played like a fiddle, or they love getting outraged as much as Katie loves winding them up.

It's all really boring now, either way.

I don't for one second believe there is one person on this earth who would seriously think that.

Katie Hopkins is a panto villain. She's even said so herself, IIRC. She's clearly DONE horrible things, like breaking up a marriage and getting snapped having a shag in a field, but when it comes to the stuff she says there is just NO WAY she is being serious. She just knows what will get a reaction, but as time goes on and more and more people wise up to her she has to get more outrageous, so now we're getting comments about disabled kids and weight. God knows where she'll take it next but there will be people lined up spoiling for a fight with her whatever happens.

She did say it, it was when the recession began, before she became a person on Twitter....I heard it and was stunned. She was limited to late night discussions on local BBC radio...nobody really took much notice then, but it adds up with her love of zero hour contracts and discriminatory hiring practices.
Notice she ran the NY Marathon to see whether she would stay pregnant..

Their first child, India, was born in June 2004, and three months later they were married in front of their families and friends. Their second daughter, Poppy, was born on August 21, 2005 - and just one day later, Damian left for another woman.

Good.

Unfortunately she's so hard she probably never felt the emotions of McKinney's first wife when he left her because she's totally incapable of empathy or sympathy with or for anyone.

Best thing to do with someone like this is ignore them. They thrive on the attention that being 'controversial' brings. I know it's defeating my own point to even comment but I'm sick of hearing about her and wish she would just disappear into the ether.

I never doubted that she said it, I doubted that she believes her own words when she says things like that.

She HAS described herself as a panto villain, remember.
