Send Katie Hopkins Back To The UK

Channel 7 has cancelled Katie Hopkins spot on Big Brother, and Karen Andrews has this morning confirmed she'll be sent back to the UK. Congratulations to everyone who spoke out on social media!

Right-wing troll Katie Hopkins has made headlines today after openly flouting hotel quarantine rules in Sydney. She is in Australia to film Channel 7's Celebrity Big Brother.

Katie Hopkins should never have been let into the country. Not only is she a dangerous and racist individual who should have been denied a visa, but there are currently thousands of Australians stranded overseas.

Channel 7 should cancel her spot on the show immediately, and Karen Andrews should send her back to the UK before she puts more people at risk.

Why is this important?

Last year, Katie Hopkins was suspended from Twitter for violating the platform's "hateful conduct" policy with countless racist attacks on migrants, the Black Lives Matter movement and many others.

She published a video online today bragging about breaking quarantine rules, claiming Covid-19 is a hoax, and scaring hotel workers for fun.

There's no way Katie Hopkins should be given a platform on a national TV show like Big Brother. At its most popular, Big Brother had more than 1.7 million average viewers in Australia. That's a huge number of people who would be exposed to her dangerous and divisive views.

It's clear that she has been invited on the reality show to cause drama, get views, and ultimately more profit for Channel 7. It's irresponsible and dangerous for them to give this platform to a right-wing troll just for the sake of more money.

Channel 7 should cancel her spot, and send her back the UK as soon as possible.
