Not ever having watched a single episode of the TV show The Apprentice I admit I missed this, but on yesterday’s programme two contestants were “fired” by Alan Sugar for reportedly failing in their task of selling luxury candles.
Can you imagine the response if Hopkins had tweeted a similar comment about an Orthodox Jewish contestant who wore a kippah? “Thank crap for that. The token skullcap wearer is no more.” She would be immediately fired herself, from her job as a Sun columnist.
But Hopkins can make obnoxiously bigoted remarks about Muslims and their faith and apparently get away with it.
