Why has Katie Hopkins left LBC?


Why has Katie Hopkins left her talk radio show on LBC?

On the 23rd of May, referring to the Manchester bombing, Katie Hopkins tweeted:

22 dead - number rising. Schofield. Don't you even dare. Do not be part of the problem. We need a final solution. #ManchesterArena

She later deleted this tweet and reposted it with "We need a final solution." changed to "We need a true solution." claiming she had made a typo.

The term "final solution" was used by Nazis to refer to the Holocaust.

Her tweet was reported to the Metropolitan Police as potentially inciting racial or religious hatred and is under police investigation.

Following her remarks, Journalist and author Owen Jones had called for a boycott of the radio station, refusing to do interviews with LBC until she had been sacked.

Neither LBC nor Katie Hopkins have gone into the details about the "joint decision" for her to leave, with LBC saying only "LBC and Katie Hopkins have agreed that Katie will leave LBC effective immediately".
