Katie Hopkins sacked by LBC following Manchester attack 'final solution' comments

Good to see this piece of filth get the boot...watch out, if Fox can take Farage, you might see her heading to the US as well.

Katie Hopkins is to leave LBC with immediate effect, the radio station has confirmed.

The announcement comes shortly after Hopkins said that a "final solution" is needed following the Manchester terror attack that killed 22. A controversial tweet even by her standards, the since-deleted post appeared to call for genocide, her use of "final solution" presumably referring to the Nazis' plan to murder all Jews within reach.

"22 dead - number rising," she wrote on 23 May. "Schofield. Don't you even dare. Do not be a part of the problem. We need a final solution #Manchester."

LBC told The Independent it would not be "commenting further [than the tweet below]".

Complaints were made to the Metropolitan Police about Hopkins' tweet, which she later said she stood by, but claimed the use of "final" was a typo, changing it to "true" in a new tweet.

Hopkins has consistently been referring to "Islamic terror" and "Islamic extremists" on Twitter, phrasing with implications to an entire religion that even President Trump has been conscious to try and avoid. Though he used "Islamic" while campaigning, during his recent trip to the Middle East his speeches were on the threat of "Islamist terror" (though he misspoke in Saudi Arabia on Sunday and accidentally said "Islamic".


Donald Trump previously thanked Hopkins in December 2015 for her "powerful writing on the U.K.'s Muslim problems", describing her as a "respected columnist".
