Ding Dong the witch is dead racist! And finally banned from Twitter!
Members of the UK rejoiced this weekend as racist and transphobic wench Katie Hopkins was finally booted off the platform where she spewed hate and abuse to over a million followers.
Hopkins first became known as a contestant on The Apprentice, and she took that unfiltered, ignorant mouth all the way to the bank. Hopkins frequently aired offensive and hurtful speech on topics such as Black Lives Matter, Brexit, Trump, and immigration. She also mocked a day which was dedicated to the trans lives taken each year.
Countdown’s Rachel Riley began a campaign against the internet troll, and had her account frozen in January. While there is no confirmation on what prompted the permanent ban Twitter have said this:
“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. In this case, the account has been permanently suspended for violations of our Hateful Conduct policy.”
Naturally, Twitter were ecstatic:
a lot of shit has happened in 2020 but katie hopkins being blocked from twitter is one of the rare highs

Katie Hopkins was the architect of her own demise. Didn't know where the lines of decency were drawn and, despite losing her newspaper column and radio show, still didn't spot the trend and arrogantly pushed on with her hateful agenda. Good riddance. #KTHopkins
