Anti-LGBT pundit Caroline Farrow hit with injunction over ‘abusive tweets’
Anti-LGBT media pundit Caroline Farrow has been ordered to cease contact with a transgender lawyer over a “barrage” of abusive tweets.
A High Court judge granted an injunction against the former Catholic Voice columnist on Thursday (May 2), ordering her to stop mentioning lawyer Stephanie Hayden.
Hayden said she was forced to take action over a string of abusive tweets from Farrow.
Farrow frequently appears in the media as a pundit opposing LGBT+ rights reforms, having spoken against same-sex marriage, gay parenting, LGBT+ inclusive education, and transgender inclusivity.

The court heard that Farrow repeatedly referred to Hayden as male across a long series of derogatory and insulting messages, which spanned several months.
Mr Justice Bryan granted an injunction that bars Farrow from mentioning Hayden.
The judge also warned Hayden to cease tweeting about Farrow, according to the BBC.
He said: “The tweeting has got out of control.
“Each have said things in those tweets which, in the cold light of day in this court, I would anticipate they would rather wish they had not done.”
In a tweet after the proceedings, Farrow said: “As a result of events today, I have decided to take a break from social media until the court case is resolved.
