A series of tweets from Hopkins in May 2015 implied that Monroe defaced, or supported the vandalisation of, a war memorial, according to the activist's lawyers.
Food blogger and social activist Jack Monroe has commenced libel proceedings against the controversial journalist and pundit Katie Hopkins, in a row over tweets that Monroe claims implied she defaced, or condoned the defacing of, a war memorial.
The 28 year old writer, who rose to fame specialising in ‘austerity recipes’ and documenting the struggles of poverty in Britain, is suing Hopkins over tweets dating from May 2015. Monroe’s lawyers say Hopkins tweeted a picture of a war memorial in London’s Whitehall dedicated to the memory of women’s war efforts that had been daubed with the words “F*** Tory Scum” during an anti-austerity protest.

Hopkins' TLC chatshow has failed to pull in viewers despite the controversial columnist’s high profile.
Katie Hopkins' chatshow ‘If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World’ has been axed by network TLC after low viewing figures. According to The Guardian, the network has chosen not to commission second series as just 69,000 viewers tuned in to the first episode.

This week, in "People Saying Awful Things About Celebrities"
This week, a Fox News presenter is in trouble for saying something not nice to a prominent woman, Kelly Clarkson. See also: life resumes as normal. During his Friday appearance on The Mike Gallagher Show, Chris Wallace decided to have a dig at the pop singer, jus a couple weeks after Katie Hopkins did the same on social media.
Kelly Clarkson is yet to acknowledge the unpleasant comments.
It’s to be expected from both Hopkins and Wallace, but still, the comments were pretty unnecessary. To be fair to Wallace, he was kind of baited into giving the unfortunate sound bite by Gallagher himself.
The British columnist described Kelly as a "chunky monkey" in comments earlier this week, and repeated the remarks in a new interview.
In an interview with Access Hollywood on Wednesday, the controversial British columnist and TV personality, referred to in some quarters as ‘The Most Hated Woman in Britain’, continued her onslaught by claiming that there is “no such thing as fat-shaming”.
Katie Hopkins made the original remarks earlier this week

Allen v Hopkins. But who won?
Katie Hopkins has garnered a reputation for canvasing some very unpopular opinions. Of course, her and her employers know what they’re doing, and getting attention is the name of the game.
Lily Allen gave Hopkins a slice of her angry pie
Lily Allen took he bait, though (we can't really blame her) and gave Hopkins a piece of her mind after a frankly nasty rant in Heat magazine from the former Apprentice hopeful (that means loser).

A row was exactly what the programme quickly devolved into.
Organize a panel on one of the most controversial issues out there and then invite one of the most polarizing TV personalities to discuss – Channel 5’s Big Benefits Row certainly had the right idea when it comes to boosting ratings. It’s questionable whether Katie Hopkins, Deirdre Kelly or ‘White Dee’ from controversial Channel 4 documentary Benefits Street and ex-Tory MP Edwina Currie ever had a chance at some kind of productive discussion about whether the benefits system should be changed, but that was not what happened during the show.
Katie Hopkins was her usual loud and vibrant self.
Dee made a surprisingly composed and coherent first live TV appearance. Making her case, she said: "I haven't been on benefits my whole life. It’s just at the moment. I suffer from depression and I'm being assessed for bipolar disorder."

Change.org petition wants 'Benefits Street' to be cancelled while Katie Hopkins has something to say about the residents.
'Benefits Street' continues to cause further debate as one online petition calls for its cancellation, while others feel no sympathy towards those involved.
Channel 4's Benefits Street has caused quite the stir
Channel 4 and Ofcom were met with hundreds of complaints after the show, which documented the lives of various residents of James Turner Street in Birmingham who were receiving state hand-outs. It featured people drinking and smoking excessively, with two people even being filmed during their shoplifting exploits. Now a petition on Change.org has called for the following four shows to be axed insisting the show 'has portrayed people on benefits as scroungers and it's wrong', and suggesting that Channel 4 should make a donation to a relevant charity for 'the harm caused'.
The arguments about names and class caused the host to lose her cool.
“This Morning” host Holly Willoughby isn’t usually known for her explosive temper, but even she has her limits. Those were apparently reached yesterday, when guest contributor Katie Hopkins (of The Apprentice fame) went off on a tangent about children’s first names and class separation. While the debate of whether the class system is still relevant in Britain rages on, Hopkins has taken it to a whole other level – her children are not allowed to interact with kids, bearing “working class names.”
Willoughby wasn't having it.
The tangent included statements like: "I think you can tell a great deal from a name. For me there's certain names that I hear and I think, 'Urgh'. For me, a name is a shortcut of finding out what class that child comes from and makes me ask, 'Do I want my children to play with them?
