In 2015, former Apprentice contestant Hopkins tweeted:

@MxJackMonroe scrawled on any memorials recently? Vandalised the memory of those who fought for your freedom. Grandma got any more medals?

On 10 March 2017, the High Court found that Hopkins had libelled food blogger Monroe, and awarded Monroe £24,000 damages plus legal costs of an initial payment of £107,000. Hopkins had refused Monroe's requests to apologise for the tweet in which, the court heard, Hopkins had confused Monroe with fellow tweeter @PennyRed.
