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.

If someone was willing to pay me ££££ then I would happily spout as much shite as they wanted!

I rather admire the way that her, Liz Jones et al take the insults on the chin, in the name of making money! Jeremy Clarkson is a different kettle of fish though, he is an arse on TV and an arse in RL, just a different kind of arse!

She is right though, people do judge. She just says what other people are thinking but are too scared to say. And it's good that she brings these things out because that's the only way they can be challenged.

I watched this and thought she was playing a part. I also thought that despite what she was saying there was a chummy rapport between her and Phillip and Holly. They're paying her to be controversial/have a strong opinion.

There's not a million miles between her and the truth; there are some mothers that will 'engineer' friendships for their children, because they like the parents, because they're close by whatever. When my DS started school children from the am and pm nursery were mixed. I was v surprised when he was asked to a party with two others from his group to a child they barely knew. I'm pretty sure the mother was engineering the friendship.

She's just a twat who says things for a reaction. The thing is, it works and she gets the air time she wants. She's like a wasp, ignore her and she'll go away.

She is vile. What is she actually famous for? I've never heard of her. Can't believe there are actually people like her out there, that completely look down on working class folk like they are vermin. I'm a working class person and I found her attitude very offensive.

Her face at the end was a picture though when Holly told her to shut up. She had a face like thunder. Stupid woman.

As a couple of posters have already said she is playing the pantomime witch and doing a wind-up. She did it very well and Holly was nearly laughing at the end "Stop!"

It's good telly done with a sense of humour, unlike the humourless pantomime witch Liz Jones.

She has said something totally vile about ginger babies this morning. I am quite upset as pregnant (with a very likely to be ginger baby) and hormonal!

Thing is, her poor children are far from faultless and are being exposed to much more negativity by her putting them in the public eye than she can give, and so it's really backfiring.

Why does ANYONE give the stupid bitch air time?? She's appalling.

She was totally boot-faced at the end though, wasn't she. Good for Holly.

I do feel desperately sorry for her children though - parents of their peers are going to see the dismal witch airing her pathetic views and think "I'm not having my child mix with her children, they'll be utter snobs and weirdos too!" Social death for the poor children.

I do think she is right that people judge others by their names whether they want to admit it or not. Some names will be perceived less well than others. Tarquin isn't perceived any better than anything -Mae. The Baby Names board on MN stands testament to that.

Her attitude towards working class people is what is vile and offensive here,no that she judges people on names per se.

Also,I think Holly only bright it to an end because that segment of the show had run out of time.

This is the classy lady who had a shag with a married msn in a field in the middle of the day, mmm and she's worried about who her children associate with eh!
