Katie is sparking some serious controversy with her latest tweet on #Ferguson.
The controversial commentator, posting on Twitter, branded the 18-year-old a “thug” and claimed police officer Darren Wilson should be awarded “a medal” for gunning him down.
Brown’s death has instigated widespread protests and laid bare racial tensions across the US, which turned violent this week following a jury’s decision not to indict Wilson over the shooting in Fergsuon, Missouri.
Hopkins wrote: “Brown was not shot for being black.
“Brown was shot for being a thief and a thug. Give the officer a medal.
“Justice with knobs on.”
Brown was not shot for being black. Brown was shot for being a thief and a thug. Give the officer a medal. Justice with knobs on.
