Katie Hopkins has made herself another enemy in the form of Denise Welch, after the two became embroiled in a furious Twitter feud.
DING DING DING. Katie vs someone, round, er, we’ve lost count.
This time, the women’s fight eventually centred around Katie making an unnecessary reference to Denise’s struggle with depression, although it all orginally stemmed from just one parody tweet.
Yep, it all started when Denise made her feelings clear about Katie seemingly tweeting to compare TOWIE’s Gemma Collins to a “massive whale carcass.”
The 56-year-old Loose Women panel member tweeted the 40-year-old loudmouth to say that her comments were “not acceptable,” but was soon corrected by Katie, who informed her that the tweet came from a parody account.
As per usual, Katie’s reply wasn’t *EXACTLY* full of love and forgiveness.
Instead, she wrote in her usual brash manner: “You utter buffoon – notice anything about the Twitter handle?”
Don’t hold back there will you, Katie?
Making a nasty reference to Denise’s depression struggle, she added: @MindCharity have a word with @RealDeniseWelch would you. it’s all gone a bit Anthony Hopkins – Silence of the Lambs years. [sic]”
She also wrote: “I will wait for your apology when you look at the actual Twitter handle.”
OUCH. Denise is an ambassador for the mental Healthy charity Mind.
Understandably, Denise wasn’t ready to take the tirade lying down, furiously tweeting back and berating Katie for her comments.
She wrote: “So because I speak out again @KTHopkin she makes fun of my association with @MindCharity. Bully. Bigot. B***h.”
Screenshotting just a small collection of Katie’s past vile comments, she continued: “I accept 1 tweet was from a parody account @KTHopkins These however are not. [sic].”
She also said: “I have lived with mental illness since I gave birth 26 yrs ago. I have & will continue to speak out against bigots like @KTHopkins.
“I am aware that ONE tweet was from a fan account. The rest, however, are from the horses mouth!”
Of course, Katie wasn’t *quite* ready to end it there, and having to have the last word, wrote: “Oi Denise Squelch, a present for you bird. Your brains gone wonky. [sic]”
That present? A pair of stabilisers.
We repeat: OUCH.
Talk about no love lost between these two, eh?
