The official website of Katie Hopkins – social commentator and journalist, best known for her appearance on the UK series of “The Apprentice” – has been hacked.

The hack attack came shortly after she made an appearance on ITV’s This Morning in which she claimed that she didn’t like children with “lower class” names.

It appears there are a lot of people who don’t like Hopkins, including some hackers who breached her website, katiehopkins.co.uk.

“I g0tz haxed lol xDDD IM A DUMB [EXPLETIVE] (sic),” the hackers wrote on the site.

The attackers have also pointed out that they’ve leveraged an SQL Injection vulnerability to hack the website.

“Maybe you should get a team of real web developers so that you are protected from SQL Injections,” the hackers said.

At the time of writing, the website has been taken offline.
