While Katie Hopkins tried to hold her down with her negative comments throughout the week, Caster Semenya didn’t let any of that negativity stand in between her and her Gold medal that she won at the 800m race in London on Sunday (and that made Katie mad as hell)

Katie Hopkins quickly became South Africa's most hated Brit for insulting Caster Semenya and angering black twitter with her vile tweets.

In one of her many tweets, she claimed that there is no way that Caster is a woman and that it’s unfair that she gets to compete amongst women. The South African twitter community didn’t react well to Katie’s tweets, they stood firmly behind Caster and told the journalist where to get off.

The Journalist was called all sorts of names by black twitter, they even went as far as labelling her a racist .The 42-year-old didn’t back down, she stood firm and continued to tweet what she called "facts" and made matters worse when she called herself Katie Mandela with the 'Black Lives Matter hashtag. 

The twitter community was so angered by her tweets that one tweep even went off to writing a poem explaining what Caster’s first name Mokgadi means. In the poem, the poet expresses his anger and how proud we all are of Caster.

Yikes, people can be so mean (but black Twitter can be meaner)!
