Katie Hopkins’ Twitter account has been hacked and overrun with pornographic abuse, including a link "sex tape" the hacker claims features the outspoken celebrity, but which shows a man apparently performing sex acts on himself.

Hopkins, known for her outlandish claims and most recently for causing widespread offence by calling immigrants “cockroaches,” appears to have had her entire timeline of tweets deleted by the hacker, which have been replaced with statements such as “RT if you think Katie deserved this :]”.

Her timeline now carries abusive pornographic claims.

Her account appears to have been hacked by a user called “Phil Olbison”, though this has not been confirmed. The hacker has been Tweeting messages using this name, stating: “Reply to this Tweet with ‘Phil Olbison is a God’ if you’re thankful for Katie getting jacked’,” and, “Tweet: ‘Phil Olbison runz the net’ for a shoutout!”

The hacker has then posted claims that they have a sex tape featuring Hopkins. The hacker has posted two links, one of which is hosted on porn site YouPorn and features a video called “The Hoover by Phil Olbison,” and apparently shows a man masturbating with a vacuum cleaner.

The links to the video are still online and Hopkins’ account, which is validated, now bears no profile picture but the abusive tweets were still online at the time of writing. Hopkins' website also appears to have been disabled.
