They were sure that would make the woman break. Turns out she has a heart of a prison warden.”Katie tweeted her article out to her 90,000 Twitter followers with the cutting caption: “XFactor finalist Sam Bailey - just a fat mum in a jump suit with a caravan of camel toes.”Understandably, Sam’s fans leapt to her defence on Twitter, calling Katie a “t**t” among other things.Another fan wrote: “The sooner your tv career is over the better.”topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 2(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013She went on to criticise other aspects of the TV talent show, including Katy Perry, Gary Barlow and Sharon Osbourne.Of Katy Perry, she wrote: “Winning the award for the ugliest dress ever worn by a pretty woman, her singing would not have made it through a regional heart in the Macclesfield Shopping Mall.”So, she managed to offend Katy Perry and the people of Macclesfield in one fell swoop.topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 3(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013And as for the other stars of the show?“Not even the stars were terribly well turned out. Elton John looked a bit like the real Elton, but puffy around the gills. Without the piano we would not have recognised him.”Media outlets have sinced dubbed her “rent-a-gob”, “vile” and an “attention seeker”.topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 4(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013Katie recently landed herself in hot water when she posted a tweet about the life expectancy of Scotland, just hours after the fatal Glasgow helicopter crash that claimed nine lives.“Life expectancy in Scotland based 07/ 08 birth is 59.5. Goodness me. That lot will do anything to avoid working until retirement,” she wrote.She immediately faced backlash on the social networking site for her insensitive message, which she later apologised for, adding that it was simply a case of “poor timing”.Thousands of people quickly signed a petition to get her banned from being on TV again: she often appears on This Morning to discuss various topics.The petition read: “On the 30th November 2013, Scotland was still in shock and trying to come to terms with a horrible crash that took the lives of innocent people. Within 24 hours of this happening Katie Hopkins posted the vile remarks on Twitter about how long the people of Scotland live for.“This is unacceptable and distressing to those who lost friends and family. We the undersigned are sick and tired of ITV and Channel 5 giving her airtime and want her banned from all TV shows on your channels such as This Morning and The Wright Stuff.”It goes on: “This woman is nothing more than an attention seeker who does not deserve to be a celebrity.”It was later reported that she had been dropped from the ITV morning show, as a spokesperson for the popular daytime programme claimed they had no plans to include her in the near future.topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 5(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013Possibly Katie’s most outrageous moment this year came in July, when she sat on the This Morning sofa and told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that she judges children by their “lower class” names. She admitted she won’t let her three children play with certain kids, because for her “a name is a shortcut” to letting her know “what class that child comes from”. She picked out names such as Chardonnay, Tyler and Charmaine as names of children she wouldn’t want hers to play with. “They probably haven’t done their homework,” she argued. “There’s a whole set of things that go with children like that, and that’s why I don’t like those kind of children.”She added: “I tend to think children who have intelligent names tend to have more intelligent parents and they make better playdates for my children.“Children are named according to their parents’ intelligence. They are a social marker, an indicator of vocab, manners, ability, respect.”Understandably, the Holly and Phillip were gobsmacked, and fought back on her somewhat shocking opinions, as did the show’s other special guest, who called her “an insufferable snob”. Twitter users branded her “cruel, snobby, old-fashioned and a bitch”, among other things.topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 6(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013‘Britain’s most hated women’ (as she has been dubbed several times this year) recently posted another tweet in relation to her earlier tirade on children’s names.“10am Tyler eating his breakfast Mars Bar. Opens day 4 on his mum’s giro advent calendar. Only 10 to go.”The backlash Katie received on the web was immense, and many were quick to point out that one of the types of names she has a problem with – geographic names – is rather ironic as one of her own children is called India.topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 7(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013As well as being a regular face on This Morning in 2013, Katie was often seen on Channel 5 talk show The Wright Stuff.In one such appearance, she discussed the topic of addiction and how she doesn’t believe it should be treated. She also referenced alcoholic retired footballer Paul Gascoigne, who she claimed needed to “crack on” with drinking. On the topic of recovering addicts, she said: “I don’t believe what Russell Brand says about addiction. I just don’t buy it. It’s a behaviour. Gazza likes drinking, let him crack on. He is enjoying himself.”Alas, the backlash ensued on Twitter after her thoughtless comments, which came not long after Gascoigne was hospitalised after collapsing outside a hotel. He had previously spent time in a rehab facility in the United States to help deal with his addiction.topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 8(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013One of Katie’s most defining moments this year came when she clashed with Peaches Geldof in a debate about attachment parenting. The tension had built between them before they even sat next to each other on the sofa, ranting on Twitter about each other ahead of the ITV show. After Peaches admitted that she sleeps in a separate bed to husband Tom Cohen because she sleeps with her two young sons, Katie labelled her method of parenting “crap”.“It’s all a bit ‘knit your own Birkenstocks’ for me. AP (attachment parenting) is just one step away from CR-AP parenting.”She went on: “I think it’s really important that mums are mums and that they are in control. AP parents think it’s important that you’re there straight away if the baby cries. But I think it’s important to see that, as a mother, you put baby down to sleep and if they want to cry, then they should go for it.”However, Peaches managed to argue her point and seemingly managed to win the debate, leaving Katie deflated and looking downtrodden as she was pictured after the debate.topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 9(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013Katie launched an attack on ginger babies in 2013, rather unbelievably. The reality TV star tweeted: “Ginger babies. Like a baby. Just so much harder to love.”She then laboured her unusual point in a follow-up interview in OK! magazine. When asked if her own daughters India and Poppy are ginger, she retorted: “Oh no, they’re definitely brown. We don’t have ginger in the family.“That was the first question I asked when I gave birth to [my son] Max: ‘Is he ginger?’ There’s nothing worse than a ginger boy, especially in the young years.”Obviously, many people took to Twitter to share their disgust. One person wrote: “That vile bully Katie Hopkins has tweeted horrendous things about ginger babies and dissed the name Ethan, yet thinks Cosmo is a great name.”Another added: “Ooh Katie Hopkins has slagged off ginger babies. One step too far.”topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 10(©Rex)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013Katie is also very outspoken on the topic of overweight people, and has discussed the topic of obesity several times over the year.In October, she claimed that overweight children needed to be told they’re fat and, earlier this year, she admitted she – as a business woman – wouldn’t hire an overweight person to work for her.Speaking to The Sun, she said: “Would I employ you if you were obese? No I would not. You would give the wrong impression to the clients of my business.“I need people to look energetic, professional and efficient. If you are obese you look lazy.”Katie also went head-to-head with an overweight mother on This Morning (again) who claimed she was fit to work and wanted to, but that employers wouldn’t hire her. It made for awkward TV when Katie said “If you look at someone who is your size… do they look dynamic, do they look disciplined, do they look highly efficient? Well, no, speaking frankly.”topKatie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)Katie Hopkins’ most controversial quotes of 2013 - 11(©YouTube)
