Katie Hopkins deported from Australia after bragging about flouting Covid regulations
Posted On –
Katie Hopkins, a British television personality, was deported from Australia after boasting on social media that she had broken Covid-19 regulations.
Hopkins, who in the UK is known as an opinionist with extreme right-wing views, was in Australia to take part in the Australian program Big Brother.
She uploaded a video from her hotel in Sydney, where she ridiculed the risks taken by frontliners and said she was looking forward to being served room service by hotel staff so that she could open the door naked without wearing a mask.
In the same video Hopkins called the lockdowns the biggest myth in history. Sydney and Melbourne are both currently under lockdown.
The Australian government said it had canceled Hopkins’ visa, after she was also axed from the reality show she was due to take part in.
Home Secretary Karen Andrews said the Government would be deporting Hopkins from the country as soon as possible, and that she was happy to see the back of her.
