31,000 People Sign Petition Calling For Katie Hopkins To Be Deported From Australia

Thousands of people are backing an online campaign for Katie Hopkins to be kicked out of Australia.

It was revealed the controversial TV commentator flew Down Under last week to take part in Celebrity Big Brother Australia.

Her inclusion was enough to spark a wave of online hatred and calls for Channel 7 to dump her from the programme.

However, Ms Hopkins did something over the weekend that has only intensified those calls.

She opened the door to her hotel room naked and without a mask.

In an Instagram Live video that has now been scrubbed from her account, she said: "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].

"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."

Channel 7 has now booted her from Celebrity Big Brother and confirmed the move in a statement.

The network said: "Seven Network and Endemol Shine Australia confirm that Katie Hopkins is not part of Big Brother VIP. Seven and Endemol Shine strongly condemn her irresponsible and reckless comments in hotel quarantine."

But now there are calls for her to be kicked out of Australia.

A Change.org petition has quickly racked up more than 31,000 signatures.

There's also now a massive campaign directed at Channel 7 to have their Olympics advertisers pull out for booking Hopkins for the celebrity reality TV show.

Campaign organisation Sleeping Giants Oz his calling on the likes of Toyota, Woolworths, Optus and McDonald's to reconsider their advertising during the Games.

After the Instagram Live video was released, Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews ordered an urgent review Hopkins' visa.

The investigation will look into whether her stunt breached her visa conditions, which could be grounds to send her packing back to the UK.

Hopkins' inclusion in Celebrity Big Brother Australia wasn't the only to spark controversy. On the same day Katie's arrival news broke, Caitlyn Jenner was also flying into Australia to partake in the show.

Many questioned how and why these two were given visas to come Down Under when there are tens of thousands of stranded Aussies who are desperate to get home.
