Katie Hopkins has once again raised eyebrows with her controversial comments, this time about Olympic diver Tom Daley.

Tom famously came out in a YouTube video last December, where he revealed that he was dating a man who was later revealed to be Oscar-winning American screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

While Tom received massive support from the public following the video, Katie was clearly not among the fans won over by his coming out announcement.

She was then asked how she would feel if her own 10-year-old son came out as gay later in his life, which got a slightly more positive response.

Stereotyping gay men and saying her own daughters "aren't good-looking" - that's our Katie...

Dustin Lance Black recently spoke out in support of Tom's decision to come out, telling journalists: “He’s the best. I’m very proud. Everything Tom has said about being in love I feel and echo probably more. I’m very happy.”

The diver recently appeared in the ITV2 reality series ‘Tom Daley Goes Global’, which he says made him feel more like other people his own age as he could take a break from his gruelling training schedule.
