Christine Hamilton dumped by charities after comparing burqas to KKK HOODS

Two charities have dropped Christine Hamilton over a Tweet she posted. Hamilton compared “sinister” burqas to KKK hoods.

Muscular Dystrophy UK and Balls to Cancer severed ties with her after a public outcry.

She posted an image of Ku Klux Klansmen in white hoods with the caption: “If the burka is acceptable then presumably this is too?”

She then posted two more tweets trying to explain why she posted it.

Muscular Dystrophy UK tweeted late last night: “Christine Hamilton is no longer an ambassador of MDUK and all links between her and the charity have been severed.”

Since you’re here …

It may worry you that most of our press is owned by a handful of offshore billionaires. News is increasingly biased, corrupt, or agenda driven.

More worrying is the staggering decline in independent, investigative journalism. It costs a lot to produce, so many publications facing an uncertain future can no longer afford to fund it.

With nobody to hold the rich and powerful to account, or report on the issues that don't fit with their 'narrative', your help is needed.

You can help support free, independent journalism for as little as 50p. Every penny we collect from donations supports vital investigative and independent journalism.
