Controversy-loving Katie Hopkins has caused another row after appearing on This Morning.

The ex-Apprentice candidate said that she does not want her own children hanging out with kids who have first names that indicate they are from a lower social class.

Hopkins said “For me, a name is a shortcut of finding out what class that child comes from and makes me ask, 'Do I want my children to play with them?”

It didn't take long for Hopkins to trend again on Twitter, with many viewers outraged by her opinions. Is there any merit in her classist assertions?
