Owen Jones "absolutely gloating" over Katie Hopkins LBC departure

Katie Hopkins final solution tweet

Controversial TV personality Katie Hopkins rarely has a week where she is not in the news. "We need a final solution #Manchester".

According to sources there were "massive cheers and applause" from former colleagues in the LBC newsroom after they received confirmation that she would be leaving.

The talk radio station made the announcement this morning via Twitter, simply saying that "Katie will leave LBC effective immediately".

She had hosted a weekly show every Sunday on LBC and continues to pen a column for The Daily Mail.

Complaints were made to the Metropolitan police about the tweet.

A spokesman for the Met said on Tuesday that are reviewing and assessing the allegation. "#Manchester."
Her initial comment has been taken by many as a reference to the January 1942 Wannsee Conference, attended by high-ranking German and Nazi governmental officials in which there were calls for a "Final Solution to the Jewish Problem".

LBC host James O'Brien called Ms. Hopkins "monstrous" on air following the tweet, saying he felt ashamed to share a platform with her, BBC reported.




The 42-year-old is known for being an outspoken commentator on far-ranging topics from terrorism and Islam, to children's names and obesity.

Katie replied: "I stand by my tweet".

Following her comment Holocaust Memorial Day Trust's Chief Executive Olivia Marks-Woldman criticised her "offensive and divisive language".

LBC announced her departure on Friday morning but offered no reason why.

Shortly after, she edited the tweet and wrote: "typo / wording amended", and then deleted it completely.

In a revealing interview done days before leaving the broadcaster, the controversial commentator said she would happily face time in prison as a outcome for "speaking out".
