Professional gobshite Katie Hopkins is to leave her LBC show ‘immediately’ after calling for a ‘final solution’ following the Manchester bombing.
The former Apprentice and Big Brother contestant used the Nazi term following the atrocity, which saw 22 people killed and dozens injured after a suicide bomber detonated a device as concert-goers left the Manchester Arena.
Hopkins hosted a weekly show every Sunday on the station. Hopkins, who also has a MailOnline column, caused outrage earlier with a tweet that appeared to reference the term used by the Nazis for the Holocaust.
The now-deleted tweet, made in the hours after the explosion, read: ’22 dead – number rising. Schofield. Don’t you even dare. Do not be a part of the problem. We need a final solution #Machester (sic).’
Complaints were made to the Metropolitan Police about Hopkins’ tweet.
A spokesman for the Met said: ‘We can confirm that a complaint has been received by the Metropolitan Police in relation to a tweet. As is routine, the allegation will be reviewed and assessed by specialist officers.’
After deleting the original tweet she sent another one removing the term.
The 42-year-old is known for being an outspoken commentator on far-ranging topics from terrorism and Islam, to children’s names and obesity.
She has also appeared on reality TV programmes I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! and Celebrity Big Brother, as well as fronting her own programmes on TLC entitled If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World and My Fat Story.
