Katie,

You’ve  gone to an all time low now mocking children with autism, people with autism have enough daily challenges, children and adults can struggle daily living with the condition known as the triad of impairments autism is a developmental condition, if you weren’t aware.

After watching the programme on TV  born naughty my twitter feed @kevin_healey became inundated with tweets about you  mocking once again, only the other week after watching the mental health programme of the young man you tweeted, that the man on Channel 4’s The Stranger On The Bridge documentary should have JUMPED.

You wrote: “ENOUGH with the ads for #strangeronthebridge Starting to wish the sympathetic stranger had let him jump.” 

I personally find this disgusting.

You also tweet now and again about ADHD that it doesn’t exist and the children are just naughty but when you was in the big brother house you brought this subject up again with Katie Price, but your not   a medical doctor?  Are you?.. trained to diagnose children NO!, ADHD is a recognised medical condition.
Katie,  you need to apologise to the Autism community but I doubt this will very much happen now.

Nearly 10,000 people have signed my petition calling for you to say sorry to the Autism community, but you refuse, I even invited you  to speak with me on BBC radio Stoke but you refused and couldn’t face me on air, I even tweeted you  a Few weeks go to ask  if you  wanted to spend the day with me to see what autism is like, but no response from you, only when you found out I was petitioning you about the Autism remarks you decided to block me on Twitter, then when my followers started to too tweet you also then blocked them, I always thought you like a challenge but you  couldn’t face me, and you also   sent a statement to the BBC radio Stoke which was read on air… regarding the ED miliband tweets you said “it was all in jest” in my opinion it wasn’t in jest,  you  were clearly mocking autism and now you’ve  done  it again but this time picking on the most vulnerable in society a young  child, within the last week you mocked autism, ADHD and mental health the question remains are you  – anti disability? It’s looking this way.

During the week I’ve been  inundated with tweets from my followers how much upset you’ve caused people with autism and there family’s, but Katie, you have  now stooped to an all time new new  low, the young girl  on the program  channel 4 born naughty, honey has enough to deal with every day of her life, without you referring  to a farmyard animal because of her weight and most sicking calling her a T**T is just absolutely horrific and un-called for.

People have asked me even if you would   apologise  would it be sincere?, and would people except it, I don’t know I can’t speak for others, but what I do know is that the autism community is outraged and thousands want an apology – you tweeted one twitter  user during the week you said: ” I never apologise for anything I’ve said“,  however this is untrue, you just need to Google your name Katie Hopkins says sorry’ and you will see various articles,

As an adult living  with autism, my opinion of you, you lack compassion, respect, and empathy, they say people with autism lack empathy but I have more empathy than you will ever have, and you have upset thousands of people living with the condition, and there family’s friends etc..
