Ex-Rebel Media columnist Katie Hopkins flown to Prague to receive fake award, unleashes tirade against minorities - 2020-01-31
It cost him what he described as a "large investment," but YouTube star Josh Pieters pulled off a prank for his 1.2 million followers. He flew controversial U.K. pundit Katie Hopkins to Prague to accept a fake award and recorded her as she went on a rant against minorities, Greta Thunberg and more.
Hopkins, whose twitter bio says she is "the biggest bitch in Britain," has spoken previously about how Islam is taking over the U.K.; of being persecuted as a white person; and about the scourge of "feminazis." Writing for the Sun in 2015, she described Mediterranean migrants as "cockroaches." In early 2018 she began a column for Ezra Levant'sRebel Media, but was dropped at some point later the same year, according to CanadaLand.
In conversation with the U.K. outlet Metro, Pieters revealed that the stunt, designed to show Hopkins up as an extremist, was two and a half months in the making and involved a lot of logistics and legal advice. He said he and his friend, Archie Manners, "wanted to fly (Hopkins) to Prague for three days and give her the Campaign to Unify the Nation Trophy just to show her what a c*** she is."
