'Most hated' United Kingdom broadcaster Katie Hopkins fired after Manchester bombing tweet

"LBC and Katie Hopkins have agreed that Katie will leave LBC effective immediately", LBC tweeted early Friday.

The decision comes just days after Hopkins announced on twitter that there needs to be a "final solution" in the wake of the Manchester Arena terror attack, which left 22 dead and 59 injured.

Katie Hopkins was sacked from her presenting position at LBC earlier today (May 26).

But it was the last sentence that concerned the public the most, with some likening her reference of a "final solution" to how the Nazis referred to the Jewish population during World War II, eventually massacring millions of innocents in the Holocaust.

No official announcement has been made to confirm the reason for her dimissal and Hopkins has responded to people asking her, saying: "Listen funsters, you know I can't say why, but please stop being kind on email".

Hopkins, a columnist and media personality, first rose to fame after her appearance on TV show The Apprentice.

Hopkins did not address her departure on Friday morning but showed no signs of letting up on her controversial views.

Melania publicly snubs Donald Trump again
I'm also a fan", Mrs Netanyahu said. "I talk everyplace about her, how great she is, how great you are". Melania Trump has the entire media in the palm of her hands - quite literally.

The tweet, directed at ITV host Philip Schofield, was quickly deleted and replaced with a different post saying: "We need a true solution".

The news that she would no longer be on the nation's airwaves met with a rapturous response from her detractors, although some of Hopkins's listeners criticised LBC for "giving in" to pressure to silence her.

Katie replied: "I stand by my tweet".

She is yet to comment on the news.

The 42-year-old is known for being an outspoken commentator on far-ranging topics from terrorism and Islam, to children's names and obesity.

After removing her initial tweet, Hopkins posted an amended version.
