Controversial Sun columnist, Katie Hopkins has expressed that she wants to make a documentary where she lives “as a Muslim in a burqa,” the Daily Mirror reports.
Hopkins also stated in her column that she would “like to go into central London and do the moonwalk in a burqa but I probably won’t be allowed.”
However, she doesn’t explain why she wants to don a burqa for a documentary, nor why she wants to do a moonwalk wearing one in central London.
Hopkins has vocally supported the ban on the burqa.
In a column written for The Sun earlier this year, she wrote: “Having two menacing eyes staring at me from a slit makes me feel like I have opened my letterbox to find someone looking in.
“If only the British Prime Minister would ban the burqa, then Britain would feel a lot more like home.”
The Daily Mirror questioned Hopkins’ intentions suggesting that it “seems unlikely it is being done to gain empathy with people from other religions.”

Taking Hopkins’ racist and Islamophobic remarks towards Palestinians, Asians and Muslims into consideration, the Daily Mirror could very well be right.
