Katie Hopkins joins “far-right” Canadian website Rebel Media

Katie Hopkins, the former Mail Online columnist, has joined far-right Canadian website the Rebel Media, where Tommy Robinson, the founder of the English Defence League, is also a contributor.

Hopkins will write a regular column through a new website called Hopkins World and will also contribute video commentaries and investigative reports.

She parted ways with Mail Online, the sister website of the Daily Mail, last year after the website did not renew her contract.

Hopkins rose to fame by appearing in the third series of the Apprentice and wrote for the Mail Online for two years after leaving the Sun. But her columns and tweets have led to her being accused of publishing deliberate provocation rather than legitimate commentary.
