Earlier this week, Katie Hopkins infuriated people across Ireland by revealing that she will be appearing on The Late Late Show this Friday.

News of the controversial columnist’s impending visit led to the submission of letters of complaint to RTÉ and calls for people to boycott the historic chat show on social media.

In an open letter to the national broadcaster, Alan Maguire encouraged The Late Late Show to reconsider its decision to provide a platform for the opinions of a woman who, among other things, has “described refugees as cockroaches”.

Defining Katie as a “dangerous bigot”, Mr Maguire wrote: “It is simply not in the public interest to mainstream the dangerous views of people like Ms Hopkins in order to generate cheap and pointless Twitter outrage.”

“I thought The Late Late Show was better than this,” he continued.  “I believe The Late Late Show should be better than this.”

As expected, the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant has not taken her critics’ views lightly as she has taken to Twitter to challenge those who oppose her invite.

Replying to Mr Maguire’s tweet, the 41-year-old mother of three fired back: “A dangerous bigot?  I speak my mind.  Regular taxpayers are sick of political correctness and the multicultural mafia.”

In response to similar complaints, Katie wrote: “In my experience lefty lovies are braver behind their sticky keyboards, flossing their teeth with their toenails.”

And: “Ireland.  We voted for Brexit.  America voted for Trump.  Get over it.”

It sounds like Katie is coming with all guns blazing.

She’s one of the best known faces on the Hollywood circuit, but that hasn’t spared Khloé Kardashian from Donald Trump’s vile tongue.

Following the release of a 2005 video which documents a seriously misogynistic conversation between the potential president and American presenter Billy Bush, sources close to the Celebrity Apprentice TV show have claimed that Khloé was kicked off the programme in 2009 because Trump didn’t find her attractive.

According to a Huffington Post source, the 70-year-old New Yorker said: “Why don’t we fire Khloé? She is a fat piglet. Why did we get the ugly Kardashian?”

 

About last night….

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times this week, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star perfectly summarised why Trump is unfit to be in a position of political power as she responded to his cruel words.

“I didn’t think he was saying those things about me,” she said.  “But he says those comments about a lot of women — really derogatory things.”

“Someone who is that simplistic to judge things off of surface is not someone I want running my country.”

“It’s not cool or appropriate for any person, male or female, to judge someone else by their looks…I find it really cruel.”

We hear you, Khloé.

For many women transitioning from adolescence to adulthood isn’t the most the most enjoyable experience.  On top of having to deal with real life struggles like money (or lack thereof) for the first time, your body can change in ways outside of your control.

As uncomfortable as this experience can be, there’s one obvious way it could be made a whole lot worse and that's by having the whole world scrutinize every aspect of your physical appearance as and when it changes.

Having made this transformation in the public eye, model Gigi Hadid is no stranger to bodyshamers.  But just because receiving criticism is an occupational hazard of hers, it doesn’t mean the Californian beauty is going to sit back and let the trolls walk all over her.

Gigi recently posted a bikini selfie to Instagram which inspired one troll to suggest that the 21-year-old has lost too much weight since she re-entered the modelling industry in 2011.

According to Elite Daily, the star was quick to shut down the bodyshamer in question as she fired back a lengthily comment.

Gigi wrote: “Bodies change as girls become women…Having my body judged over the span of the 4 teen-to-woman years has really shown me the human tendency to label and make uneducated judgement…I loved my body as a 17-year-old athlete and I love my body now.”

 

In the post the Tommy Hilfiger model acknowledged that she has lost “baby fat” but insisted that she has never intentionally changed her body.  She suggested instead that her weight loss is due to a combination of growing up, boxing training and work-related stress.

She finished by asking the author of the original comment to think about the women who may judge themselves as a result of reading online hate.

“Your comment won’t get me down, but next time, please think about the young women who may read body-judgement comments and judge themselves as they see their bodies growing and therefore naturally changing, too.”

Kylie Jenner found herself in some hot water this week when it was reported that her make-up business received an 'F' rating from the Better Business Bureau due to a large volume of complaints being made about the company.

Since its launch nine months ago, Kylie Cosmetics has repeatedly sold out its famous Lip Kits but, according to the Mail Online, it has also earned 137 customer complaints which is why it received the lowest possible grade from America's BBB.

But the teen star has shown she is not about to sit back and watch her cosmetics empire be bashed as she has taken to her website to encourage people to look at the facts.

She wrote: "You guys are the reason I keep going and I'm motivated every day to make Kylie Cosmetics the best it can be."

"I'm continuing to learn and I just want to make everyone happy. Because so many of you spoke out, I'm excited to tell you that the Better Business Bureau has looked at the facts and changed the rating." 

"I’ve sold millions of lip kits and any complaint we’ve received to date has been addressed in a timely manner."

"I'm sick and tired of people coming for my business.  I love everything about Kylie's Cosmetics and I will do anything in my power to protect and improve it every day and make you guys happy."

"I don't want to respond to the haters but you guys deserve an answer and to know the facts. I love you and apologize to anyone who felt the urge to complain and didn't receive the service they deserve."

Sounds like Kylie is pretty determined to get her business back on track.
