Katie Hopkins educates Cambridge University students on sexism, loathing ‘fat people’ and the perils of ‘being ginger in the dark’
The former Apprentice star was in typically caustic form at her Cambridge Union Q&A session
But students were left gobsmacked by a typically outrageous performance from the former Apprentice star, as she told them she didn’t "really like fat people" and "wouldn’t like to be ginger in the dark".
Her popularity waned further still when she panned what she perceives to be the special treatment of university applicants who had attending state schools.
"I believe preserving an elite system is a fantastic thing," she told them.
"Do I want this place to be judged by the number of state school kids? Hell no. I want it to be judged on what you guys achieve when you leave.
"There's a league table that says those who have more state schools are better. That's a social mobility policy and I don't believe that.
"If it gets to a point where Cambridge is lowering its entrance requirements to increase its quota of state school kids I think that is wrong."
Meanwhile, on gender equality, she told them: "I don’t believe in anything thats skewed to get more women into jobs... I don't like women who complain."
And on the subject of everyday sexism, she had this nugget of wisdom for female students in the audience: “I've come to accept that it's just something that's going to happen every day. If you don’t like it, don’t put yourself out there.”
Previous speakers at the Cambridge Union Society, which has existed for 200 years, include Winston Churchill, the Dalai Lama and Ronald Reagan.
And Russell Brand, who put on a characteristically flamboyant performance when he addressed the Union on revolution and drugs laws back in January.
He was accused of making a homophobic slur after he referred told one house to "Shut up you Harry Potter p**fs".
