Katie Hopkins gave speech attacking Muslims to far-right group days before leaving Mail Online ‘by mutual consent’

Katie Hopkins’ departure from Mail Online came days after she gave a speech attacking Muslims and calling on people to “fight for their country”, it has emerged.

The publisher said the columnist’s contract “was not renewed by mutual consent” and gave no further comment on Monday, while Ms Hopkins did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

But news of her departure came three days after footage was published online showing her speaking at an event organised by far-right American think-tank the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

The Independent is an often ludicrously left wing rag, and a candidate for winner of the Trump Derangement Syndrome award, it’s also 30% owned by a Saudi Sheik.
