Katie Hopkins in Nazi Tweet: “I’m sorry for the word racist in a way”

Say-anything provocateur Katie Hopkins has pulled a retweet of praise from a neo-Nazi Twitter account after prompting outrage.

The loudmouth columnist had been sharing a recording of her show on LBC in which a caller called Joseph told her she came across as racist.

It featured her telling him: “I genuinely believe ‘racist’ as a word has been used so much.

“I’m sorry for the word racist in a way. I love language.

“It’s become used so much, it’s like a regular word now, it’s lost all meaning to me.”

After the show ended she tweeted the clip, writing: “Call me racist. I don’t care. I will stand up for white women being raped because you’re scared to offend Muslims.”

She later retweeted a message praising her from an account called AntiJuden SS, which featured a Nazi swastika on its avatar.

The tweet read: “Now that is the way it should be told.”

Horrified followers slammed her on Twitter.

Graham Crewe wrote: “You want to retweet from someone with THAT symbol as their avatar?!? #crazierthanithought”

And another wrote: “Joining hands with Nazis.

“Probably the best way to ruin all your good work to date. Very disappointed.”

One fan told her: “Respected your point of view until that Nazi retweet.”

The presenter later deleted the retweet, saying: “To be fair, I didn’t look at the Twitter handle. I have pulled the retweet.”
