She is known for her controversial commentary, but this may just be Katie Hopkins’ most shocking rant yet.


The former star of The Apprentice has launched a scathing attack on a group of mothers who are protesting outside Claridge’s Hotel in London today, following an incident where a mum was asked to cover up while breastfeeding her baby on the premises.


Taking to Twitter late last night to make her feelings on the protest known, she wrote: “Free to feed protest tomorrow. Expect mammary militia out in force. Stand firm Claridges Hotel. Their sort shouldn’t be free to breed.”


The mother-of-three added: “Women have the right to breastfeed. But they don’t have the right to put everyone else off having milk in their tea. Put it away girls.”


But if you think that Katie was about to stop there, you would be very much mistaken.

The controversial columnist went on to share a photo of mums breastfeeding their babies on her timeline, with the caption: “’But mum, I’m not even hungry’. ‘Shut it baby, you’re my placard, [and] I’m protesting for the cameras.’”


Needless to say, Katie’s comments have angered many of her followers on social media, with some Twitter users calling for her to be banned from the site.

One outraged mum responded: “Why should breastfeeding women have to go [and] hide away in a corner like they’re doing something to be ashamed of?”
