Katie Hopkins mocked for suggesting Notre Dame fire was arson attack

Katie Hopkins has come under fire yet again – but this time she shared claims arsonists were to blame for the Notre Dame fire.

The outspoken broadcaster from Exeter took to social media to share a now-deleted tweet from Fox News contributor Christopher J Hale, that claimed he had heard a rumour that the fire had been ‘intentionally set’, reports the Daily Mirror.

But Twitter users have since mocked her for sharing the third-hand piece of gossip, especially as authorities investigating the blaze had already ruled out arson or any possible terror-related motives.

Katie also shared an article referring to a spate of reports that Catholic churches had been vandalised across France, appearing to link the two.

It read: “A Jesuit friend in Paris who works in #NotreDame told me cathedral staff said the fire was intentionally set.”

He later added a second tweet before deleting them both: “I should note he has zero evidence beyond what the staff said. So qualify this in an unsubstantiated rumor.”

Twitter users responded in their droves to her tweets: “To be read as ‘A friend of my neighbour has a cousin who once ate French fries so is clearly French and he said it was intentionally lit.'”
