Yet again the Daily Mail has to apologise, and this time so does Katy Hopkins

Post by sassy on Mon Dec 19, 2016 10:48 am

Not tucked away in a liittle corner, but a fulll apology on The Mail Online:

The Mahmood family – an apology 
By Mailonline
Published: 00:00, 19 December 2016 | Updated: 00:00, 19 December 2016

An article published in Katie Hopkins' column on 23 December 2015 ('Just because Britain's border security is a Mickey Mouse operation you can't blame America for not letting this lot travel to Disneyland – I wouldn't either') suggested that Mohammed Tariq Mahmood and his brother, Mohammed Zahid Mahmood, are extremists with links to Al Qaeda; that their purported reason for visiting the USA – namely to visit Disneyland – was a lie; and that US Homeland Security were right to prevent them from boarding their flight. We are happy to make clear that Tariq Mahmood and Zahid Mahmood are not extremists, nor do they have links to Al Qaeda. They were travelling to the USA with their families to see one of their brothers for a holiday in California and they had indeed planned to visit Disneyland as part of their trip.
In addition a further article in Katie's column on 29 December ('A brave Muslim tried to warn us their week about the extremists taking over his community. What a tragedy it is that our PC politicians would rather not know') suggested that Hamza Mahmood (Mohammed Tariq Mahmood's son) was responsible for a Facebook page which allegedly contained extremist material. Our article included a photo of the family home. Hamza Mahmood has pointed out that he is not responsible for the Facebook page, which was linked to him as a result of an error involving his email address. We are happy to make clear that there is no suggestion that either Hamza nor Taeeba or Hafsa Mahmood (Hamza's mother and sister) have any links to extremism.
We and Katie Hopkins apologise to the Mahmood family for the distress and embarrassment caused and have agreed to pay them substantial damages and their legal costs.

I hope they had to pay out a LOT of money.

Katie Hopkins sued by Jack Monroe over vandalism accusation
Mail Online columnist claimed freelance Guardian writer supported vandalism of war memorial before discovering she may have been confused over the writer

Freelance Guardian writer Jack Monroe is suing Katie Hopkins after the Mail Online columnist accused her of sympathising with the vandalisation of a war memorial and then said that she had confused the food blogger with another writer.
Monroe on Monday confirmed issuing proceedings after the controverial columnist accused the blogger of supporting the vandalism of a second world war memorial.
The row, reported on Monday in the Press Gazette, dates back to last May when Twitter erupted after a memorial was daubed with the words “Fuck Tory scum”. Hopkins asked Monroe: “Scrawled on any memorials lately? Vandalised the memory of those who fought for your freedom? Grandma got any more medals?”

What a pity the brain surgery she had failed to correct her mental defect.
She is a retard, and a disgrace to journalism.
She would be better served getting her tits out in the Sunday Sport.

Wink          THAT brain surgery, though, did leave her without a fully functioning brain...

So now she can claim an excuse for her ugliness, stupidity and obnoxiousness; (i.e. "My epilepsy & resultant brain surgery must have made me say that..").

I wonder what excuses her fellow like-minded trolls Tommy and Pte Pain will give, for them finding themselves in the same position, having only half a brain  ?           pirat

She is a whore, she prostituted herself whilst married, shagged toyboys, rent boys and probably boys. No wonder the Scum dropped her like a hot spud.
Faced with a damages bill for libel and defamation of character, I cannot see the Fail keeping her for much longer.
I reckon her days of vitriolic , racist broadcasting at LBC are numbered.
She is a liability. A libel case waiting to spew out bile every time she opens her trap.
.
Her kids must be so proud.
