Watch out, Katie Hopkins is back
Take a deep breath and picture cute kittens because your blood pressure may be about to rise. Why? Because she's back.
First UK Apprentice star Katie Hopkins, 38, took to TV to say that that she wouldn't let her kids play with children with "working class" names like Tyler, and she then stirred up Twitter by spouting that "ginger babies are harder to love".
Now? Yesterday she attacked the weight of Scottish lingerie entrepreneur Michelle Mone O.B.E.
Mone, the 41-year-old head of bra brand Ultimo, instigated the Twitter war by tweeting, like many others had before her, in protest of Hopkins' attack on children:
She won't employ fat people,judges kids by their names&says ginger babies are hard to love,keep your vile opinions to yourself,Katie Hopkins
Hopkins then responded by calling Mone - who is a size 12 after having lost 44 kilos in the last three years - the "large lady of the bra factory":
More wisdom from the large lady of the bra factory in the North? As the tortoise said to the snail. Has anyone seen me shell? @MichelleMone
Mone replied with, "Remind me what you do again apart from this?" (Did you click on the link? Apologies folks, we know some things can't be unseen. It's like an odd SNL parody of Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders).
Hopkins retaliated with, almost nonsensically, "Less tweeting, more concentrating 'shell. You just missed that important stitching on the under wire there now."
Mone did not appreciate having her NZ $75 million business brought into the attack (although she's probably not upset about the subsequent publicity now) and replied with:
Leave my multi-million £ business out of it.. my Tweets are for all the Tyler's, gingers and (cont) http://t.co/ImEXzSKADR
Predictably, Katie Hopkins has started to cash in on her newfound, if controversial, Samantha Brick-esque fame, and has released an e-book entitled The Class Book Of Baby Names, in which she describes why some names are fine and others aren't.
Here's a particularly infuriating excerpt:
"Take Ashley. Shut your eyes and picture mum: legging clad, slightly overweight and clutching Primark bags twice the size of her latest baby. There may be another one on the way, but you can never be sure."
