Katie Hopkins Breaks Her Silence On Being Deported From Australia

Katie Hopkins has spoken out for the first time since she was deported from Australia.

The controversial British commentator was kicked out of the country after her visa was suspended for breaking hotel quarantine rules.

She was promptly kicked off Big Brother VIP Australia, fined $1,000 and escorted to the airport yesterday (July 19) to go back home.

Ms Hopkins has now broken her silence and uploaded to images to her Instagram.

One is a selfie accompanied by a caption that said: "You may 'deport' the Hopkins. But you cannot silence the truth. We will fight to TAKE BACK our freedoms."

The other post is a list of things to do when you're trying to survive a 'media sh*t storm'.

She reckons these five tips will help anyone when the spotlight is fixed firmly on them.

"Don't read stuff about yourself. That's just weird. You were there, you know what went down. It is unlikely the word 'flouting' was involved," said one of the tips.

The Australian government acted quickly to suspend Katie's 'critical skills' visa in the wake of her admitting to breaking quarantine rules.

In an Instagram Live video that has since been scrubbed from her account, she openly bragged about playing a game with hotel staff.

"The police officer who checked me in told me when they knock on my door I have to wait 30 seconds 'til I can open the door [to collect food]," she said in the clip.

"Then I can open the door but only if I wear a face mask.

"[To] frighten the s**t out of them and do it naked with no face mask. What I want is the sergeant in the foyer to come up and tell me off so that I can stand there naked while he tells me off."

Many have asked why Ms Hopkins was granted the right to get into Australia when there are so many Aussies stranded overseas.

Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews defended their decision to allow the commentator in and said it was because she would be an asset to the economy.

"We need people to be able to come into this country where there is an economic benefit for them to do so," Ms Andrews told the ABC.

"People will be supported to come into the country where states are sponsoring them on the basis of economic benefit."

The Minister was happy to cancel the visa once news of her rule breaking went viral.

"The fact that she was out there boasting about breaching quarantine was appalling," she said.

"It was a slap in the face for all those Australians who are currently in lockdown, and it's just unacceptable behaviour.

"Personally, I'm very pleased she'll be leaving."
