Katie Hopkins: I hope my son is gay

Katie Hopkins of Rebel Media speaks at Politicon

Controversy-monger Katie Hopkins has claimed she “hopes” her eight-year-old son will be gay.

The former Celebrity Big Brother star told QX Magazine of her 8-year-old Maximillian: “Is my son gay? I kinda hope he is.

“Everybody with a gay son is much more savvy, the son tells them exactly what they think.

“My son really loves stuff to do with dancing, and fashion and he couldn’t give a toss about boys’ things like football.

“I walk my children to school and the key thing about doing that is your kids talk to you about what’s going on.

“The kids took the p*** out of my daughter because she had boys shoes because she wanted boys shoes.

“But she said to the other kids, ‘These are my feet, these are my shoes, you don’t have to wear them’.

“And that’s what I hope my kids are going to be like. I’d hope that I’m around enough to know if they were being bullied for being gay.”

Hopkins came second in the latest season of Celebrity Big Brother – behind former glamour model Katie Price.

She previously claimed Tom Daley’s coming out was “lame”, saying: “It was really lame… we all knew he was gay.

“People love Tom Daley and the people who watch divers [are the] kind of the people who like to read Women’s Weekly.”
