Katie Hopkins is no stranger to ruffling a few feathers with her outspoken opinions, but it seems she’s really touched a collective nerve with her latest Twitter rant.

She said: “Mohamed? No, you must be mistaken…..For these are a peace loving people.
“Go on. Create a hashtag. Make a vigil in a public square. Say you stand united…..when will SOMEONE finally close the borders. #NiceAttack
"Celebrities tweeting ‘not again’ every bit as responsible for terrorism as politicians failing to act. Sod your icon.
