Fkn Good: UK conservative, Katie Hopkins, has been taken to Sydney International Airport this afternoon to fly back to the UK and fined $1000.
The shock-jock has been making headlines for an Instagram rant about Sydney’s hotel quarantine and for deliberately flouting quarantine rules. In her annoying rant, Hopkins bragged that she opened her hotel room door to staff (she’s supposed to wait 30 seconds for them to walk away) fully naked, without even a mask.
Hopkins has now been transferred to Sydney International Airport to fly back to the UK and has been issued a $1000 fine for not wearing a face mask.

Earlier today, Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews confirmed that now that Hopkins’ visa has been revoked, NSW Police and the Australian Border Force would be “getting her out of the country as soon as [they could] possibly arrange.”
“The fact that she was out there boasting about breaching quarantine was just appalling. It was a slap in the face for all those Australians who are currently in lockdown, and it’s just unacceptable behaviour so personally I’m very pleased she’ll be leaving,” Andrews told ABC News Breakfast on Monday morning.
The flapping bin lid was also dropped by Channel Seven after she was rumoured to be in the cast for the new season of Big Brother VIP. This decision is in line with an out-clause in Hopkins’ contract with Channel Seven that says talent should not bring the network into disrepute.
“Seven Network and Endemol Shine Australia confirm that Katie Hopkins is not part of Big Brother VIP,” Channel Seven in a statement on Sunday.
“Seven and Endemol Shine strongly condemn her irresponsible and reckless comments in hotel quarantine.”
In the wise words of icon JoJo: “Leave (Get Out).”
