Katie Hopkins makes shocking tweet about Baby Jaxon who was born with an abnormal sized head

  • Twitter

Katie Hopkins first came to fame in 2007 on The Apprentice. Since then she has appeared on various celebrity television shows and is currently a columnist for The Daily Mail. People might most commonly associate her though as the woman who creates controversy.

Earlier this year Katie Hopkins made tweets insinuating that those who suffer from dementia are bed blockers and later referred to migrants “cockroaches” and “feral humans” which was condemned by the UN’s High Commission for Human Rights.

This British television personality has once again made unflattering headlines. On Monday she tweeted about Baby Jaxon Buell who recently celebrated his first birthday. What made the birthday special is the fact that he suffers from an incurable brain condition called Microhydranencephaly which causes microcephaly and scalp rugae. This results in the scalp being much smaller than normal.

Hopkins tweeted a picture of Jaxon along with her tweet “Plain wrong. If your baby has half a head, you don't have it. Cruel and inhumane." There has been major online backlash where people have called her “evil” and “disgusting”.

One tweeted "Seriously Hopkins. I don't even have the words for what I've just read. You absolutely disgust me." Her big brother housemate Perez Hilton replied with, ‘I hope you don’t have any guns or sharp knives around the house! You evil c***!” Hopkins though doesn’t seem to care about these hateful comments as she refuses to delete the post.

Brandon, Jaxon’s father said that they have been previously been targeted by internet trolls. He states, "It’s baffling to hear or see other people’s opinions on our baby that have never met him, that somehow know how he thinks, how he acts, how he feels, how much of what he does is voluntary or involuntary, how he is always in pain, and that we are selfish parents for not choosing to have an abortion."

"No doctor could tell us exactly what was wrong or what to expect, but we did make sure to ask if Jaxon was in pain or was suffering, and we asked if there were any added risks for Brittany during the pregnancy or potentially at time of delivery. Since the answer to both questions was 'no', we never came close to considering abortion."
