The UN refused to recognise Katie Hopkins as a journalist – 15 gleeful burns

Katie Hopkins isn’t happy – no change there then, you might think – but the cause of her ire is more interesting than most.

The former Mail Online columnist turned whatever it is she does now applied for accreditation to attend a United Nations event and, well, this is what happened.

This is what Hopkins made of it.

Maybe the good people of the United Nations remembered her Sun column when she described migrants as ‘cockroaches’.

This is what the UN’s high commissioner for human rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, said at the time of the column in 2015.

“The Nazi media described people their masters wanted to eliminate as rats and cockroaches,” said Zeid. This type of language is clearly inflammatory and unacceptable, especially in a national newspaper. The Sun’s editors took an editorial decision to publish this article, and – if it is found in breach of the law – should be held responsible along with the author.”

And here’s what people made of the UN’s decision to tell her where to go.
