Katie Hopkins sacked over controversial Manchester tweet


Katie Hopkins has been sacked by LBC radio with immediate effect.

The announcement comes after the journalist posted a tweet saying that a ''final solution'' is needed following the tragic Manchester terror attack. 

The wording of the tweet proved to be highly controversial with many suggesting she was referring to the Nazis' plan to for the extermination of the Jews during the second World War. 

It 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."

Katie said she stood by the comment even after complaints were made to the Metropolitan Police Service.

LBC (Leading Britain's Conversation) is known for it's right-wing discussions, so their decision to let the presenter proves just how insensitive the comment was.

As we know, this isn't the first time Katie has found herself in hot water.

Just last year, The Mail Online was forced to pay  £150,000 to a Muslim family, after she falsely accused them of having extremist links. 

Katie has not yet commented on her dismissal.
