It is now a crime to tell someone they are FAT!

“The former Apprentice contestant Katie Hopkins has annoyed a lot of people in her time on social media – but it seems she may have now gone too far after she was apparently reported to the police for committing a “hate crime” against an overweight woman.

In an incident recorded for a new TV programme about her own weight loss, Hopkins stages a panel discussion with five people who, it is claimed, represent the interests of those with weight issues.

Hopkins has previously said that all “fat people are lazy”, and in an openly insulting exchange told campaigner Kathryn Szrodecki that “it is not healthy to carry that much weight on your knees”.

 According to Mail Online, a video preview for the TLC programme shows Ms Szrodecki saying “this is actually to do with a hate crime”, to which Hopkins responds “Do call the police, there’s a telephone right there. Would you like it brought to you? Because it’s probably going to be hard to walk there.”
Listen, it is NOT a “hate crime” to tell a fattie that they are fat. It is a crime to even consider sanctioning free speech because the recipient of said doesn’t like what they hear!

  1. Incidents like this show the stupidity of labelling the use of a ‘statement of fact’ as a ‘hate crime’. Is it the intention to ban the use of personal discretion when deciding who or what we may like or dislike?

  2. … but it seems she may have now gone too far after she was apparently reported to the police for committing a “hate crime” against an overweight woman.

    Someone shoot me in the head.

    … represent the interests of those with weight issues.

    Now please. I’ll even the supply the gun.

  3. Katie Hopkins is also in trouble for tweeting something about ‘sweaty Jocks’ and the Ebola incident according to the press today. She is determined to press all the politically incorrect buttons isn’t she ?

    For the record, I don’t believe she should be prosecuted or even investigated over these incidents.

  4. Fat people are lazy ! From my experience anyway.

    These people need to ask themselves why they are so overweight ? Answer : To many calories and not enough exercise.

  5. A lot of ” fat ” people aren’t lazy, though many are.

    And according to the weight charts, the majority in the NFL and NBA, the best athletes in the world, would be obese, which shows you how stupid the charts are, counting muscle as the same evil that a beer belly is.

  6. It is just factually incorrect to claim all fat people are lazy but individuals should not face prosecution or censure for making inaccurate or stupid comments.

  7. Hopkins is a publicity-seeking right-wing blowhard. Anything she says is calculated to get her more attention. Her “sweaty-jocks” remark needs to be seen in that context. Sad really.

  8. Oh I agree Peter but she should be permitted to say it and those offended should hit back verbally not legally.

  9. It seems that even 100 years ago HG Wells found PC expressions irritating, so nothing is new these days:

    In his short story ‘The Truth about Pyecraft’, he tells the tale about a club bore who annoys everyone about his need to “lose weight”, rather than admit he was just fat.
    Another club member gives him an old Indian recipe for weight loss and the next day Pyecraft is found in his room, floating around against his ceiling, unable to come down to earth. Ha!
    I can’t remember how the story ends, but Wells makes a fine point about a ‘terminological inexactitude’, very suitable for our times.

    Colm
    Entirely agree about hitting back verbally. I wonder how Hopkins would respond if she was told what a large Jewish-looking nose she has?

  10. Oh I agree Peter but she should be permitted to say it and those offended should hit back verbally not legally.

    Absolutely. Let free speech rule. The PC dictators need to be put in their place, and Hopkins is a useful idiot in that struggle.
