Controversial former UK Apprentice star launches attack on ginger-haired babies

Katie Hopkins was well known in the UK after appearing on the 2007 season of Apprentice but now she's famous for her bigotry and snobbery against little children.

Last week she appeared on the English breakfast show This Morning saying she judged children by their first name and if they sounded 'lower class' she wouldn't allow them to play with her own kids.

She singled out names like Chantelle, Charmaine, Chardonnay and Tyler. She tweeted:

She followed it up with this tweet:

In an interview with OK! magazine she made no secret of the fact she didn't want ginger children, saying that it was front of mind when she gave birth to her youngest child, son Max.

'That was the first question I asked when I gave birth to [him]: "Is he ginger?" There's nothing worse than a ginger boy especially in the young years.'

She has since repeated her opinion on an English television show which led to a tirade of disgust and outrage on Twitter, including celebrity Kelly Osbourne:

But it's not just children she attacks, Hopkins also attacks other mothers with tweets like this
