At 7:24am Tuesday the 23rd of May LBC presenter Katie Hopkins tweeted her response to the shocking tragedy in Manchester that happened at an Ariana Grande concert last night.
Before the dust has settled, before the perpetrator has been identified Hopkins tweeted the following:
"22 dead - number rising. schofield. Don't you even dare. Do not be part of the problem. We need a final solution. #Machester"
She later updated this to:
"22 dead - number rising. Schofield. Don't you even dare. Do not be part of the problem. We need a true solution. #ManchesterArena"
The implication of the term "final solution" should be clear to anyone with a basic understanding of history, including Hopkins herself. Hopkins regularly exploits tragedy to spread her disgusting ideology, surely calling for a 'final solution' is a step too far.
I call on LBC to stop giving a platform to this extremist spreading her hateful views. By legitimising and broadcasting her views LBC is actively promoting division and racist hate speech.
Surely this is enough?
