She has made her name making derogatory and controversial remarks about other people including, at times, children, but Katie Hopkins has now found herself on the receiving end of vicious abuse.

Hopkins' Twitter account (@KTHopkins) has been hacked by someone calling himself Phil Olbison, a man who claims to have a sex tape of the columnist and has made explicit remarks about her sexual preferences.

While she has half a million followers on Twitter, many people are expressing their pleasure at the fact she has been hacked, although the nature of the threats and posts made by the hacker are also drawing criticism.
