Katie Hopkins has been reported for racial hatred after she blamed the chief rabbi for the horrendous synagogue attacks in Pittsburgh.
The far-right political personality, who is currently working for Canadian media website The Rebel Media, said rabbi David Lau’s “support for mass migration across the Med” is to blame for the shooting which left 11 people dead.
In a tweet she wrote: “Watching the pin-the-blame on the donkey after Pittsburgh Synagogue. Gab. Trump. White Supremcists. The Media. Muslims. Look to the Chief Rabbi and his support for mass migration across the Med. There you will find your truths.”
The tweet has been widely condemned, with a number of people reporting her to Twitter for racial hatred.
Observer writer Jay Rayner encouraged people to “report this tweet to Twitter by the thousand”, with others likening her stance to Nazi ideology.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
