Many celebrated this week when the self-confessed “biggest bitch in England” Katie Hopkins was banned from Twitter. This truly toxic woman – whom once told The Steeple Times’ Matthew Steeples that she “honestly” only comes out with bile “to make money” – may have thought this a low point (though she probably put another spin on it in her banal brain), then found her week got worse.
In a video posted on YouTube rather appropriately on ‘Brexit Eve’ on Thursday, a South African ‘creator’ named Josh Pieters collaborated with the aristocrat-magician Archie Manners to pull a brilliant hoax. In it, the pair sportingly entrapped controversial-for-the-sake-of-offending-just-about-anyone Hopkins and lured her to Prague to a fake awards ceremony.
At the ceremony, Hopkins is got as merry as Martha in Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? on the hooch by people she wrongly thinks like her and then the fun begins. Pieters’ full video follows and it’s most certainly a must watch – especially the bit where a certain C-word is placed over this sorry excuse for a woman’s sanctimonious head.
Some of Katie Hopkins’ most outrageous moments:
On people with dementia:
“Dementia sufferers should not be blocking beds. What is the point of life when you no longer know you are living it?”
“Ramadan typically brings a spike in violence in Middle East. I get grumpy when I don’t eat – but I don’t blow things up. Religion of peace?”
On ginger haired children:
“Ginger babies. Like a baby. Just so much harder to love.”
On ‘Highgella’ Nigella Lawson:
“A self-confessed drug-taker, spendthrift, and a self-obsessed flirt determined to show other women they were imperfect.”
On tourists stranded in Egypt after the bombing of a Russian airplane:
“I think if you are going to take your children out from school, which is ridiculous in itself, stick them in a destination that is dangerous, don’t be complaining on my television that you’ve been delayed at the airport, don’t be complaining that you don’t have any information, and don’t be coming back acting like you are a refugee from a war-torn country.”
On Jewish politician Ed Milliband’s wife:
“Pollsters say Justine [Milliband] is the least popular of the party wives. He might stick her head in the oven and turn on the gas.”
“Make no mistake, these migrants are like cockroaches. They might look a bit ‘Bob Geldof’s Ethiopia circa 1984,’ but they are built to survive a nuclear bomb. They are survivors.”
“I don’t really like fat people… Would I employ you if you were obese? No, I would not… If you are obese, you look lazy.”
On suicidal prisoners:
“They should just kill themselves.”
