Katie Hopkins to Be Deported in Australia for Allegedly Breach of Health Protocol

Far-right British commentator Katie Hopkins faces deportation after the Australian government cancels her visa over alleged breach of health protocols.

Hopkins’ visa was revoked after she boasted about breaking Australia’s rigorous hotel quarantine standards. Hopkins had flown into Sydney for a reality program when she shared a video on Instagram of herself answering the door naked and maskless to staff carrying meals to her hotel room.

Under restrictions designed to prevent the spread of Covid-19, most international visitors to Australia are compelled to spend 14 days in mandatory isolation in a hotel. Following the release of the video, Australia’s border agency “moved immediately to ensure that the visa on which she entered was cancelled,” according to Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews.

“We will be getting her out of the country as soon as we can possibly arrange that. She’s clearly not someone that we want to keep in this country for a second longer than we have to,” Andrews told public.

Hopkins has long been a source of controversy for his racist, anti-Islamic, and anti-migrant sentiments, and he frequently opposes coronavirus measures like lockdowns. Hopkins was granted a visa with the assistance of a state government on the assumption that he could benefit the country economically, according to Andrews.

“The fact that she was out there boasting about breaching quarantine was appalling,” Andrews said.

“It was a slap in the face for all those Australians who are currently in lockdown, and it’s just unacceptable behaviour. So, personally, I’m very pleased she’ll be leaving,” he added.
