The social media giant said Ms Katie Hopkins had broken its rules around hate speech.

Controversial right-wing commentator Katie Hopkins has been permanently suspended from Twitter.

The former Apprentice star, who had more than one million followers on the site, had her account taken down for breaking Twitter’s rules around hate speech.

Ms Hopkins has been suspended numerous times before over violating the social media site’s rules, most recently in January.

While Twitter did not state which tweets had caused the most-recent ban, it did come after remarks made to Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford.

Mr Rashford recently forced the Government into a u-turn on its plans to stop paying for free school meals during the pandemic.

Ms Hopkins tweeted at the footballer saying that women should “think about how they are going to feed a child before they decide to have it”.
