​Katie Hopkins Reveals Why She Took Ketamine In South Africa And Collapsed

​Katie Hopkins Reveals Why She Took Ketamine In South Africa And Collapsed

Earlier today, you may have noticed a slightly bizarre tweet from Katie Hopkins that included a picture of herself receiving medical attention while in South Africa and read: "Grateful thanks to the South African emergency services for putting me back together. Leaving it all on the road, to tell the truths not being told. *ketamine 1 / Hopkins 0)".

Obviously the message and photo heavily implies that Hopkins had taken the drug ketamine, though the exact circumstances had been left unclear.

Some speculated that she might have taken it because she is known to have previously suffered from epilepsy, and sometimes ketamine is medically prescribed to epileptic people during a seizure.

Now it turns out that it wasn't for that reason - but it was medical-related.

In a tweet that also called out the British press for focusing on her puzzling post earlier in the day, rather than her work in South Africa, she explained that she receives medical ketamine for a serious dislocation.

"Dear British Press. Ten days of reports on the murder of white farmers and NOT ONE WORD from you," she said. "I receive medical ketamine for a serious dislocation & you salivate like dogs over meat. SHAME ON YOU #plaasmoorde".

She is currently in South Africa documenting 'the violent, ethnic cleansing of white farmers by armed, black gangs', according to her blog HopkinsWorld.

"It's infuriating, it's heartbreaking," Hopkins wrote. "And the world doesn't care. Or at least the mainstream media doesn't care. Do you?

"Every day I've been down here, I've produced a short video clip of what I've seen. Brave men and women who are still fighting for their land, for their families and their future. And so many who have been killed or wounded."

Hopkins is crowdfunding the project in the hope that a TV channel will eventually bid for the broadcasting rights.
