Katie Hopkins has been reported to police for calling for a ‘final solution’ – the Nazi term for the Holocaust – after 22 people died at the terror attack at Ariana Grande’s Manchester gig.
Hopkins, a leading columnist for the Mail Online, swiftly changed the Tweet to say ‘real solution’ but not before the Tweet was screengrabbed and she was branded ‘despicable’.
She also appears to reference TV host Philip Schofield, who walked across Westminster Bridge in ‘defiance’ following the attack on Parliament earlier this year.
Hopkins also posted: ‘My children say they would rather be shot than die slowly by nail bomb. This is the UK today.’
Critics are now calling for Hopkins, 42, to be fired by Mail Online and LBC radio – where she also has a show.
She has been reported to the Metropolitan Police over the tweet, which was part of a longer tirade, but the force said it was too early to confirm whether an investigation would be launched.
