Update: Katie Hopkins has been released, but the South African government has apparently declared Rebel Media to be an “organization advocating the practice of racial hatred or social violence.” It is unlikely that Katie Hopkins will be allowed to return.
“Amazing security co-ordination from a country where police do not respond to white farm murders because they are ‘on lunch break’.” – Katie Hopkins
“Reality TV” star Katie Hopkins had her passport seized by the South African authorities for “spreading racial hatred.” Currently, she is not allowed to the country. Hopkins has been reporting on racially motivated farm murders for Rebel Media. She is best known for her roles on the tv shows Apprentice and Celebrity Big Brother.
Hopkins was hospitalized from a seizure while in South Africa. The seizure resulted in a shoulder dislocation. Hopkins has had severe epilepsy since age 19.
Hopkins says she tried to leave South Africa after being released from the hospital. Instead, her passport was taken away and she is not allowed to leave. She now faces possible charges of “spreading racial hatred.”
