The controversial media figure once boasted on social media that he violated the country’s hotel quarantine regulations.
Australia’s Home Affairs Minister said on Monday that Australia will expel the controversial British commentator Katie Hopkins after admitting to have violated the country’s quarantine regulations.
According to Australian media reports, Hopkins flew to Sydney to participate in Seven Networks Limited’s reality show Big Brother VIP, but she posted a video on Instagram, joking that she was naked to the delivery person when she walked in. Wearing a mask to open the door aroused public outrage. Hotel quarantine.
All people arriving in Australia must be quarantined in hotels for two weeks, where people must wear masks before delivering meals, and then wait 30 seconds to collect food to avoid spread.
The Hopkins video-which was later deleted-caused public outrage because Australia has restricted the number of citizens it allows to enter the country for months, which means that thousands of people still cannot return. Unless special permission is obtained, foreigners are not allowed to enter Australia.
Amid growing criticism, Australian Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews ordered a review of the decision to grant a Hopkins University visa and stated on Monday that the government had decided to expel the commentator.
“All visa holders must follow the health instructions issued by our health officials. We will not tolerate those who do not,” Andrews told the ABC.
“We will arrange for her to leave this country as soon as possible.”
This legend is the latest chapter in Hopkins’ controversial career. Her provocative anti-immigration comments have aroused anger and even drew criticism from the head of UN human rights affairs. Due to strong public opposition, Hopkins was forced to leave several British media outlets in 2017, and recently used Instagram to question the severity of the pandemic and the scale of the government’s response.
