The Guardian reports:
The controversial rightwing commentator Katie Hopkins has had her Twitter account permanently suspended. Hopkins, who has been repeatedly retweeted by the US president, Donald Trump, and had more than 1.1 million followers, was removed in order to “keep Twitter safe”, according to the social media platform.
The move came hours after she had complained that her blue “verified” check mark, which lets users know that an account is authentic, had been removed. A spokesperson for Twitter confirmed her removal to the Guardian.
The statement read: “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.”
After the Manchester bombing on May 22, 2017, which killed 23 people, Hopkins tweeted, “We need a final solution,” and four days later, she lost her job as a presenter on LBC’s Morning Show, “effective immediately.”
According to ECHO, Hopkins deleted the controversial tweet echoing Adolf Hitler’s words and reworded to read “true solution.” Hopkins claimed the original tweet was a typo, as she had also misspelled Manchester.
Hopkins last appeared on JMG when pranksters convinced her to fly to Prague to receive an award titled “Campaign to Unify the Nation Trophy.” Check the acronym.
