The British personality is known among her million followers for speaking her mind and landing herself in hot water on numerous occasions.
BBC reports that Twitter temporarily suspended Hopkins’ account for breaking its anti-hate policy. The publication quoted a Twitter spokesperson who said abuse and harassment would not be tolerated on the platform.
“Keeping Twitter safe is a priority for us. Abuse and harassment have no place on the service. These rules apply to everyone using our service, regardless of the account involved.”
Her account currently shows all her tweets have been removed due to violating Twitter rules. The only post left on the account is a retweet from a follower who called her out for “spreading racial hatred” and being “a criminal”, regarding the comments she made about the British rapper Stormzy.
This move has been welcomed by scores who have taken to the platform to share their views. Here’s a glimpse into what they said:
Twitter finally suspended that Katie Hopkins person. The fact that the only tweet left on her page is one where someone points out her racism and urges Twitter to act is hilarious.
(Jack still has more work to do tho.)
