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.”
