Katie Hopkins, a British TV personality and columnist for The Sun, suggested on Monday that “euthanasia vans” would solve overcrowding due to an increase in the elderly population.

Katie Hopkins Advocates For “Euthanasia Vans”

Hopkins suggested the solution of “euthanasia vans” during an interview with the Radio Times, saying that if she was in charge “euthanasia vans” would be ideal to reduce the steady increase of elderly people in the United Kingdom, saying, “We just have far too many old people. It’s ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people.”

Hopkins imagined a world in which there would be “euthanasia vans — just like ice-cream vans — that would come to your home.”

“It would be charming,” she said, adding that “they might even have a nice little tune they’d play.”

Hopkins, who has made a habit of creating controverses, also lashed out at obese people while speaking with journalist Michael Buerk. “You’re fat because you eat too much and don’t exercise,” she said.

She then added that her “dream job would be to sit in the doctor’s surgery, ticking them off. ‘Get a grip, you fat b—–d. Stop eating and get out there and walk.” She even admitted in 2013 on This Morning on ITV, while sitting beside an obese woman named Jay Cole, that she wouldn’t employ anyone overweight.

Many Brits seem to be used to Hopkins’ outrageous words: her frequent offensive remarks haven’t aroused too much opposition. The “professional troll” (as The Guardian described her) did, however, spark a petition against her last April, when she had made shocking comments about Mediterranean migrants in The Sun. The petition has attracted more than 313,000 supporters who wanted Hopkins to get fired by The Sun following her column.
