Katie Hopkins has claimed the "liberal left" attempt to silence people with right-wing views following her departure from LBC.

Last week, the columnist and the station agreed she would leave with immediate effect.

The departure followed a controversial tweet in which Hopkins had called for a "final solution" to solve Islamist terrorism. 

The tweet was replaced to change "final solution" to "true solution" but already people had begun to criticise her for it, with critics pointing out the 'final solution' was the name given to the Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews in the 1940s.

In an interview with Fox News, Hopkins reiterated she had "no comment" on the sacking. 

However, she also said the anger felt by the "liberal left" in the wake of major terror attacks was often generally offloaded onto people with right-wing views.
