Serial cunt and hypocritical home-wrecker Katie Hopkins just can’t keep her mouth shut lately, and after recently insulting the parents of a severely disabled boy, she’s at it again – this time by posting an insensitive tweet aimed at the grieving family of recently slain police officer Dave Phillips.
The failed TV host and reality show contestant sunk to a new low when she compared the emotional press conference involving PC Dave Phillips’ family to an ‘X Factor VT’.
The 40-year-old tweeted: “Something about scripted grief for a press conference wasn’t right. Brits don’t make senseless death an X-factor VT.”

And when challenged about the comment, her response?
The desperate former Sun columnist was also roundly derided earlier in the year when she compared refugees to cockroaches, amongst other retweet-prompting comments.
PC Phillips, 34, was tragically killed after being hit by a stolen truck in Wallasey, Merseyside, in the early hours of Monday while attempting to deploy a tyre-puncturing device.
His tragic death was sadly noted by people across the country, but thankfully, a teenager accused of his murder was today due to make his second appearance in court.
PC Phillips left behind a wife and two young daughters, who were all in attendance on Wednesday to lay flowers at the tragic spot of his death.
A card from his youngest, Sophie, 3, read: “Daddy. My Hero. My super daddy. My world. I love you so much. I will miss our cuddles, tickles, giggles and smiles. I love you lots and lots.”
However, not to miss out on the event, Hopkins was ever-present on twitter, weighing in on the emotional scenes and quick to judge the parenting skills of a woman who had just lost her husband.
Struggling with images of little girls being taken to where some bastard killed their dad. I'd rather take mine to a place he loved best.

I’m not sure someone who has suggested using “gunships” to halt boats full of refugees from crossing the Mediterranean should ever be giving parenting advice.
Well done again, Katie, your dedication to being obnoxious to vulnerable people is relentless. RIP PC Phillips.
