Katie Hopkins continues campaign to become Britain's most hated talking head with poorly timed Bob Crow tweet
The former Apprentice star caused controversy with a typically caustic post about the late trade union leader, who died earlier today
It took Katie Hopkins a matter of minutes to cause offence in the wake of trade union leader Bob Crow’s untimely death.
The controversial Rail, Maritime and Transport union leader Bob Crow was confirmed to have died of a massive heart attack aged just 52 earlier today.
Medics apparently spent an hour trying to save his life.
The union made the announcement in a brief statement.
It read: “It is with the deepest regret that RMT has to confirm that our general secretary Bob Crow sadly passed away in the early hours of this morning.”
Naturally, Hopkins took the inappropriate opportunity to further bolster her campaign to become the UK’s most-hated talking head.
She started by posting the following tweet on Twitter:
There was a man called Bob Crow. *limerick to follow, after appropriate amount of time for national outpouring of union grief*Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) March 11, 2014
The inflammatory post sparked a typically caustic response from her followers, which went something along the lines of this:

@KTHopkins Yeah let's all mock a man whose sole crimes were to get his members a decent wage and try to protect jobsles hammond (@lesthelion) March 11, 2014
Bob Crow: 'Thatcher can rot in hell' https://t.co/imIThh5Jlb Respect?! Don't make me laugh.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) March 11, 2014
Seemingly feeding off of the hate from her own trolls, she then continued with the above, before going for another quick fix:
When I die my detractors will dance or not care. I would expect nothing less. He had no respect for Thatcher. I had no respect for him.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) March 11, 2014
Still, what did everyone expect from the woman who just hours before had posted this:
Lazy parents end up with thick kids. If you can't read this kids - it is probably just as well.Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) March 11, 2014
And let’s not forget, she does have a show to promote next week:
