Katie Hopkins has had her passport confiscated and been prevented from leaving South Africa after being accused by the country’s authorities of ‘spreading racial hatred’.
The unpopular media pundit, who has had a dramatic week after collapsing in the street and taking ketamine for an agonising shoulder dislocation, revealed she’s been temporarily banned from getting on her flight home.
In a short video filmed in the airport, Katie told her followers: “At passport control, I’ve been through security and I’ve been detained, my passport has been marked for spreading racial hatred here in South Africa.
The unimpressed former Celebrity Big Brother star couldn’t resist another dig as she tweeted: “Detained at passport control on the orders of the MYANC.
“Amazing security co-ordination from a country where police do not respond to white farm murders because they are ‘on lunch break’.”
Katie caused a stir when she begged fans to support her ‘independent journalism’ by donating to a documentary she’s making on what she branded “military-style” attacks on the country’s white farmers.
The controversial mum of three didn’t go long without hitting the headlines though – she collapsed in the street over the weekend and revealed she’d taken ketamine, leading many to wonder why she’d used the horse tranquilising drug.
But she later explained that the drug had been administered by paramedics after she dislocated her shoulder – a ‘legacy’ of the epilepsy that plagued her for 20 years before a 12-hour brain operation in 2016 appeared to cure her.
According to the NHS website, ketamine is a powerful anaesthetic used both in humans and animals. (Mirror)
