Katie Hopkins was sacked from LBC, and Twitter is only delighted

A nice start to the weekend.

IT’S FRIDAY, THE sun is shining and Katie Hopkins just got fired. What more could you want? After calling for a ‘final solution’ after the Manchester attacks this week, Katie has finally gotten the boot from radio station LBC.

Calling for genocide on Muslims was just a step too far for the station. They could have saved themselves a lot of money by not hiring her in the first place, but let’s just celebrate the fact that after years of listening to the likes of her, Donald Trump and Nigel Farage being rewarded for spewing hatred, there finally appears to be a limit.

It’s reported that the news of her departure from the radio station was met by applause and cheering in the newsroom. Can you imagine what it’s like to share an office with her?

Here’s how Twitter reacted:





5. For anyone who believes she is being censored




9. There were some individuals who were annoyed at the decision

10. But nobody cares. This isn’t an attack on free speech. It’s the reasonable response to the incitement of hatred.
