Katie Hopkins angers Ireland with ‘almost civilised’ comment

Serial offender Katie Hopkins has made Ireland the latest community of people to turn against her after she insulted the country.

Hopkins, who is known as ‘Britain’s biggest bitch’, was being interviewed by Irish presenter Angela Scanlon for her BBC series Close Encounters.Katie Hopkins angers Ireland with 'almost civilised' comment

Hopkins was making the claim that she sees herself as the ‘Jesus of the outspoken’. She then insulted Scanlon by asking if we had Marks and Spencer in Ireland, implying that it is not as developed as Britain. Scanlon sarcastically replied: “We also have electricity.”

Hopkins then said that the Irish are “almost civilised, but you like potatoes”.

Visibly angered, Scanlon pointed out: “We also have manners.”

Hopkins then insulted Scanlon further by asking: “So you’ve come to England because you like it better?”

Scanlon responded: “No, I don’t like it better.”

Hopkins said: “So go home then!”

The rudeness has caused an angry backlash from Irish people, with many criticising Hopkins for her ignorance.

    Anyone that mocks the Irish regarding potatoes is an utter disgrace. A number of comedians try it Hopkins uses it as a vicious slur. Our ancestors died in their hundreds of thousands and people think this is funny? It’s the most hurtful and racist thing I can think of. Shame shame shame!!

    She reminds me of Donald Trump–full of self and shit. Wait, in their case self and shit are one and the same. And really, quite honestly, shit has a purpose.

    She tells the girl to go home, why doesn’t she tell her countrymen to go home and get out of Ireland!
    She is very arrogant, above us all. Some people are just that way. One day she will realize she is no better than anyone else.
    Your correct Richard Purdie she is an ignoramus, among other things.

    Why give this woman the time of day or even space in Ireland Calling? People who spew hatred and ignorance shouldn’t be given time & attention.

    You compare her to Hillary? I think you !missed the entire points of the Irish and their outrage. Why not compare her to Rush L, or Bill O, Ann Coulter. You over reached, why not Trump. Hillary is nothing like this woman. Your hate for Hillary is more about you, than Hillary.

    If we are almost civilised, at least by her thinking the bitch is “almost dead”.

    “Almost civilised”!!! Have you not been watching Euro 2016 Katie Hopkins? I’m sure you must be very proud to be English and civilised!!!

    Oh Mr. Starr, you have made me laugh raucously! It seems the only the difference between Hillary and Katie is that the latter doesn’t hide her feelings for political gain. OK, maybe one more difference: Katie appears to be someone who simply has anger issues and delusions of holier-than-thou self-importance while Hillary secretly plots to sell out her own country to the highest bidder. We may be suffering a tad bit more than hurt feelings. BTW, here in the south potatoes are a staple and we cook them with electricity too.

    Doesn’t it seem sort of like she’s created on on-air persona? She’s just too completely insulting for it not to be deliberate and calculated.

    the only word i can think about this woman and i can’t call her a lady , cause a lady wouldn’t bad mouth another person’s country, is a dipdoodle. when you raise children and you don’t want to curse around them, you come up with your own little words. well this one is mine, it covers every curse word out there. i love potatoes..what is wrong with this woman, potatoes are full of potassium and a womans body needs that. maybe that’s what is wrong with her, she doesn’t eat potatoes so her potassium is low and she can’t think straight. maybe she has sand in her vajayjay, you know how irritating that can be. yes that is her problem right there.

    Hopkins feels that by being insulting, rude, and boorish she’ll gather an audience and become known. Seems like she is achieving her aim.

    The link would not play the video. I’ve not heard of Katie Hopkins here in Oklahoma, USA. We have Hilary, so I’m guessing we’re suffering equally!

    I’ll keep this really simple, in keeping with Hopkins’s level of intelligence and humanity:
