Katie Hopkins slams the overweight: 'If you can afford to eat yourself obese, you can pay for a gastric bypass'

Katie Hopkins has enraged her Twitter followers again, by insisting that obese people should be forced to pay for their own gastric bands.

The 38-year-old hit out at overweight people and accused them of 'bankrupting our NHS'.

KATIE HOPKINS: 'IF YOUR CHILD HAS NITS, IT'S THE MUM'S FAULT'

She wrote: "If you can afford to eat yourself obese, you can afford to pay for your own gastric bypass. Quit bankrupting our NHS [sic].

"I have heard of #fat acceptance. I declined the invitation.


"Stop charging students. Time for gastric loans. You want to live, you pay for it. Repayment according to how much you used to spend on food."

"Your idiocy and ignorance baffles me…" another added, while someone else said 'It's more than that as you well know, if only kiddies had sports at school with parents [sic]."
