Aibu to think Katie Hopkins is a total and utter snob?

Having just watched a video posted by a friend on Facebook of Katie Hopkins on This Morning, I have come to the conclusion she is a unashamed snob. She said she would avoid letting her children having play dates with other children based on their names. I don't know if anyone else saw this, and well done to Holly Willobooby smile for sticking up for all the mums out there who call their children what they want.
She used the name Tyler (sorry to anyone if that's not how you spell it) to emphasise her pathetic point. She actually had the gall to say that the name denotes what type of person they are - she meant class and that certain members of society choose specific names for their children based on their intelligence as parents and where they sit in the social scale. I am so angry by her ignorant assumptions and feel sorry for her children for missing out from getting to know people from all backgrounds. I just thought what a stuck up, narrow minded cow you are!
Sorry if this had already been discussed to death, it just made be see red.

What a pity. That kind of snobbery is ridiculously nouveau. Poor woman is making a fool of herself.

I actually was so astounded that she couldn't see what a knob she was making of herself.

YABU to get caught up in the Katie Hopkins thing at all tbh - she's nothing more than a caricature, that's how she keeps her face on telly and makes her money. She's a female Jeremy Clarkson, spouting deliberately controversial 'opinions' for a living.

Ughhhh... ugly inside and out... terrible way to carry on. She is awful. They shouldn't give her airtime. I know someone a bit like her... avoid, avoid, avoid. Lacks any kind of intelligence. 'India isn't a geographical name' [Hmmmmmmm]

Yes she sprouts utter drivel. My SIL knew someone who worked with her and she was quite incompetent

Emsyj that's what I thought, she's deliberately trying to be controversial for the sake of it. It's like she needs her finger in every pie, she thinks she's an expert on everything - look love you are not a bloody journalist, you were on the apprentice, which you didn't win by the way, now why don't you just sod off.

KH is dreadful, I avoid anything with her in it in much the same way I avoid the Daily Fail, I'm too snobby for both of them grin

She's the new Samantha Brick!

I love that she insulted children named after places, and her child is called India. Pot....kettle....

I can blow the snobby cows theory out of the water:

Isnt Victoria a posh name, well i know a Victoria, and shes a right chavvy, legs open sort.

Our names dont always reflect who we are.

My favourite bit was when she said she judges children who have Geographical names, eg Brooklyn or London, and Schof pointed out one of her kids was called India.

Facepalm.

Don't feed the trolls!

Loulybelle Fri 05-Jul-13 09:07:03

X Posted, Puds, silly cow, probably didnt even release that India is a country.

ilovexmastime Fri 05-Jul-13 09:07:21

I switch channels when she's on because she makes me chringe with embarrassment for her every time she opens her mouth.

YABU. She plays the character of a knob because she gets paid to.

Whoknowswhocares Fri 05-Jul-13 09:08:32

She's playing a part surely? It's probably in the contract!!!
How else is she going to get noticed or given airtime

Whoknowswhocares Fri 05-Jul-13 09:09:19

Bollocks! sparklingbrook beat me to it! grin

Exactly Who. Who would pay her to be nice?

Ifcatshadthumbs Fri 05-Jul-13 09:09:51

I don't think she holds half the beliefs she claims too I think she just loves to wind people up. I saw that clip she was enjoying every moment of winding people up.

I think we agree on quite a lot of stuff Who.

I know a woman with 2 lovely children called Paris and Tyler - KH would likely judge them but her children would be missing out on friendships with nice kids.

Tbh though - is KH actually for real? I've met some snobs but no-one that bad!

i watched the clip on FB this morning too, i was willing Holly to punch her in the gob, silly cow
