JK Rowling believes in a fantasy land, says Katie Hopkins

By Sherna Noah

Katie had been criticised for saying people in Britain were “cowed” following the Westminster terror attack.

Katie Hopkins has hit back at JK Rowling after the Harry Potter author compared her to a US ambassador who believed Britain would lose the Second World War.

JK, 51, had tweeted that Katie’s comments, on Fox News, on Britain being “cowed” by terror reminded her of pro-appeasement US ambassador Joseph Kennedy.

Now Katie, 42, has returned to the US network to slam the best-selling author, saying: “JK Rowling writes for children and she writes about a fantasy land.

“If she wants to believe a fantasy land where we’re all getting on well together and it’s a brilliant, marvellous place and it’s absolutely fine, no problem that someone mows down people as they cross a bridge, we’ll leave that up to JK Rowling.

“Darling, carry on writing your fantasy land books,” the former Apprentice candidate added.

“If you think England is united that’s a fantasy as well.”

And she said of JK: “Seeing as you’re such a big fan of migrants why not spend some of your billions in homing those migrants while you’re at it.”

Katie was previously criticised for saying of the Westminster terror attack: “People are cowed, people are afraid and people are not united. Great Britain is more disunited, more divided than at any other time in its past.”
