Katie Hopkins is a far-right British commentator who has been on Celebrity Big Brother and The Apprentice over there, and is mostly known for the shit she spews (click here for some of her biggest (s)hits). Katie, who Donald Trump is a fan of, was suspended from Twitter this week for violating their anti-hate policy.
In other words, Katie is hated, and so a YouTube prankster named Josh Pieters, who is famous for duping people in social experiments, decided to focus his next prank on her. Josh created a fake award called the Campaign to Unify the Nation Trophy (C.U.N.T. for short) and let Katie know that she won it. He invited her to Prague to accept it, and she took the bait.
Insider says that Josh explained in a YouTube video that he came up with a fake advocacy group, the Cape Town Collective For the Freedom of Speech. Josh, who is from South Africa but lives in London, listed the founder of his fictional group as the leader of the Ku Klux Klan. Honey, that is a draw for Katie! After Katie accepted the award (and obviously didn’t do much research into the group that was honoring her), she was flown to Prague for the award ceremony and was treated to a three-course dinner at the Four Seasons with Josh, the magician Archie Manners, and a room full of actors who were hired for the prank.
Before Katie got her award, Josh gave a little speech where he said things like:
“Without being able to mock other people, without being able to attack people, we are not free.”
“The intellectual battle against the woke brigade is being won.”
“The snowflakes are melting.”
Josh said this of the experience:
“I had to go to the bathroom a few times because I couldn’t keep it together… It was a very surreal, in a bad way, night. I felt like we were teleported into an alternative reality where we were all billionaires sitting around a table, drinking wine and being racist.”
Josh said at one point, he started to feel sorry for Katie, but then she started to speak and he remembered why he was pranking her. She claimed that the drowning deaths of migrant children were a “political stunt”. She went on:
“If you call “Mohammed” in a school playground in the UK, 2,000 fucking kids come running, and you don’t want any of them… Epileptics are all weirdos–they’re up there with the Asians… East London is fairly shitty at the best of times, 82% Muslim, what can I say? Those people are raping their own mother.”
Now that Katie Hopkins can’t read Twitter, I can tell you that on Monday I made her fly to Prague to pick up a completely fake award. Video up shortly. pic.twitter.com/8EeQsQX6U3

I don’t know, though. Katie proudly calls herself “The Biggest Bitch In Britain” on her Twitter profile. So this probably was a real honor to her. I mean, she got a free trip to Prague just to stand in front of a word that many have called her before. And this was a missed opportunity on Josh’s part, because he should’ve made that award a tie between Katie and Piers Morgan.
