I am being unreasonable for letting that woman give me the rage, I know that.

I'm deliberately not linking to the Daily Fail as that I presume is the whole point of this troll.

But AIBU for fantasising about flushing that woman's head repeatedly down a stinky lav?

YANBU. Christ the woman is desperate for attention isn't she? But YABU for starting a thread about her and thereby giving her what she wants. If we all ignore her surely she'll eventually fuck off?

I'll get my two wonderful and very loveable ginger haired dd to help you. Dd1 (19) sent me a link to the interview because she was so disgusted by her.

MaryMotherOfCheeses Wed 10-Jul-13 23:50:11

I wouldn't let her bother you tbh. She's a loon. What more do you need to know?

JumpingJacks Wed 10-Jul-13 23:50:32

She says it to get attention do she stays relevant and can earn ££££ by staying in the papers.

The more you talk about her, the better it is for her.

Ignore. Ignore. Ignore

Sigh even this thread is feeding that twunt, link or no link.

Oh she's a noony.

I actually think she has a tombola type headline generator in her basement and when the daily mail paycheque is getting low she wanders downstairs and gives it a spin....

She is a stupid cow.

She is also a stupid cow who would quite literally wet her knickers if the highly ginger Prince Harry wanted to wed one of her kids. So I am saying nowt. Except that she is a cow.

I have three children, one of them blonde, two of them ginger. I love them all equally, even the one with the same hair colour as KH, I am THAT broad minded!

Bumpotato Thu 11-Jul-13 00:02:39

Yep I had ginger and dark haired babies. They were equally easy to love, funny that.

I think she says some incredibly stupid stuff but, at the same time, I kind of admire her because she states strong opinions without fear of political correctness, etc.

In a society where politicians have no values other than saying what they think the public want to hear and celebrities are totally inane, life is becoming more and more homogenous so, no matter whether I like her opinions or not, I think it is refreshing to have someone say these things openly even if only to make the rest of us sit up in outrage!

And to think some poor bloke shagged her three times. She's no oil painting hmm

She is desperate for attention, it must be like a bottle of Evian on a hot day to a thirsty woman.

Ignore her.

Although I think what she says about ginger hair should be illegal. To me it is the same as making racist comments.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_hair

"Gingerism" has been compared to racism, although this is widely disputed, and bodies such as the UK Commission for Racial Equality do not monitor cases of discrimination and hate crimes against redheads.[57] A UK woman recently won an award from a tribunal after being sexually harassed and receiving abuse because of her red hair;[58] a family in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, was forced to move twice after being targeted for abuse and hate crime on account of their red hair;[59] and in 2003, a 20-year-old was stabbed in the back for "being ginger".[60] In May 2009, a British schoolboy committed suicide after being bullied for having red hair.[61] The British singer Mick Hucknall, who says that he has repeatedly faced prejudice or been described as ugly on account of his hair color, argues that Gingerism should be described as a form of racism.[62][63]"

timidviper Are you seriously suggesting that this woman has a strongly held believe that red haired children are less easy to love than other kids? Because there is no way she believes this, she is just saying it to get attention and stir up controversy.
In the meanwhile I have a beautiful, loving, generous and extremely sensitive red haired child, who if they got wind of this might actually worry that his Dad and I don't love them as much as their siblings because of their hair.
So she perpetuates the bullying and undermining of red haired children in order to further her career the horrible bitch.

I usually manage to avoid this vile woman (by not reading the daily mail), but I did see her on the Wright Stuff today, still peddling her kids names drivel, and was quite shocked when she made the ginger comment. She comes across as a bully pure and simple.

Why not write to the paper that gave a moving wind (the wind of a fart) to her story and see if they want to print an apology from her! She would be so torn between her desire to stand by her viperous viewpoint and her desire to get as much publicity for herself, who knows what she would do!

Red haired people are lovely, beautiful. There are so many new red haired female heroes on TV/film - Ben Ten's Gwen, Disney's Brave, Atomic Betty, Candace and Phinius Flynn from Phinisu and Ferb. There are lots more.

Sorry and male ones, Phinius is a boy!

She gives me rage. I don't believe she truly thinks all the ridiculous things she says because I'm not sure anybody could. What a vile person to say things to upset so many people just for attention.

Bit rich coming from a boastful adulterous whore.

My dd and ds are both blonde/red and i adore every inch of them especially when ds needs a haircut and looks like ed sheeran grin they are often more blond than red and I moan its been a while since the reds shown on them.

Kh is a god damn fool, her dc will be so ashamed of her when they're older. Worse than that they may turn out like her then she'll suffer her consequences.

Scraggy bint.

LOL, by all accounts Katie Hopkins is full of shit.

Don't give her another thought, who cares what she thinks?

Who is she anyway?

glastocat Thu 11-Jul-13 03:46:34

She's just a DM troll, don't feed her with attention.

rabbitlady Thu 11-Jul-13 04:14:43

its a crock of shite.

MyBaby1day Thu 11-Jul-13 04:38:22

She's a baddan saying something like that, if it was about a certain race she would not be allowed to do it but somehow ginger-haired children are fair game-WRONG! angry. It must be hurtful to the parents!. She shouldn't be given a platform. Sad for her children too!.

cleofatra Thu 11-Jul-13 04:47:43

TBH I'm more annoyed at the outlets that employ her. I think it was a bit rich to push the "Holly gets annoyed at Katie" clips for publicity, If you are so horrified by her views, can her from the show ITV. Scummers.
