Katie Hopkins says 'fatties' should be weighed before flying

Katie Hopkins has hit out at overweight people, insisting they should be weighed before being allowed to board flights.

The 38-year-old social commentator's comments came after a flight from Southend to Malaga was delayed, leading to 10 passengers being removed.

After concluding that these people must have been overweight, Katie took to Twitter to give her thoughts.

Linking the story, Katie tweeted: "This EasyJet plane was too full with fatties to take off. How many times do I have to say it? Weigh in at check in."

Katie's comments were met by some backlash from users, with one replying: "Why on earth would you want to subject people to that kind of humiliation?"

Another blasted: "Oh do shut the f* up and read the pilots comments re weather conditions. Idiot [sic]."

But, as usual, Katie was undeterred. She greeted her followers this morning, throwing in a sly dig at overweight people.

She wrote: "Good morning good people of Britain. And to my fat friends – how are we doing? Continuing to live in denial? Or deciding to get a grip ?"

After recently gaining three-and-a-half stone to prove her point that being overweight means a person is lazy, Katie is now trying to shift it.

Her attempts will be documented on a TV show, set to be aired next year.
