Conservative Troll Katie Hopkins has Been Banned From Twitter

Donald Trump has plenty of provocative fans in the United States. But he also has his supporters from overseas as well. Milo Yiannopoulos, who at one time was a Brietbart editor, hails from Kent, England. And Katie Hopkins, who has written for the Sun and the Daily Mail, was also born in England and now lives in New York.

Hopkins appeared on the British version of The Apprentice in 2007 and earned a fan in Donald Trump. She also became famous for her offensive statements about Muslim people. These statements have become too much for Twitter, which recently banned the British writer from their platform.

The site announced, “Keeping Twitter safe is a top priority for us – abuse and hateful conduct have no place on our service and we will continue to take action when our rules are broken. In this case, the account has been permanently suspended for violations of our Hateful Conduct policy.”

The last straw for Twitter was Hopkins complaining about a charity providing lunch to children who had no other options. “Dear Marcus Rashford, do you think women should think about how they are going to feed a child before they decide to have it,” she tweeted. “I do not want to pay to feed other people’s kids. You are welcome to. Thank you, Katie Hopkins.

Hopkins took the decision in stride, saying she would be joining Alt-Right friendly site Parler.
