Katie Hopkins, the former Apprentice candidate who has offended just about every section of the British population at some point or other, got fired this morning. A comment she made in light of the Manchester attack proved too much for radio station LBC, where she had a show, and they decided to get rid of her immediately. Hoorah!
In a now-deleted tweet, she wrote: "22 dead - number rising. Schofield. Don't you even dare. Do not be a part of the problem. We need a final solution #Machester." Not only did she spell Manchester incorrectly, but the use of "final solution" seemed to be a call for genocide and was presumed to be a reference to the Nazi genocide of millions of Jews in the Second World War.
So, as you can imagine, many people – us included – are overjoyed that the nasty hatemonger has finally got her comeuppance. Even her colleagues at LBC apparently erupted into applause.
