Manchester City Brilliantly Respond To Katie Hopkins' Marcus Rashford Post

Marcus Rashford's incredible work paid off on Tuesday, when the government reversed its decision not to provide free meals to kids during the summer months, but Katie Hopkins wasn't happy with the outcome.

The insidious rent-a-gob 'media personality' responded to the news of the free meals, that was greeted overwhelmingly positively elsewhere, by tweeting, "Dear Marcus Rashford, do you think women should think about how they are going to feed a child before they decide to have it?

"I do not want to pay to feed other people's kids. You are welcome to. Thank you, Katie Hopkins."

The internet responded in typical fashion by placing a picture of her face over the picture of Martin Demichelis being destroyed by Rashford in the Manchester derby in 2016.

Hopkins tried to get the upper hand by suggesting she looked 'hot' in the blue of City, but the Premier League champions weren't having it.

Rashford wasn't the only football who responded to Hopkins' usual brand of bile. The former Sun columnist has an ongoing feud with Patrick van Aanholt, an the Dutchman also chimed in.

Responding to Hopkins' initial tweet the Crystal Palace defender pointed out that Rashford had 'done more for his country in 24 hours' than she had in her life, wonderful.

During lockdown Rashford had initially started a charity to raise funds for kids from poorer backgrounds who usually struggle to get meals outside of school hours.

The 22-year-old helped raise over £20 million to help secure three meals a-day for those kids and then turned his attention on the free school meals scheme.

Normally in the summer the scheme ends but Rashford wanted that changed so children weren't missing out on meals outside of term time, especially in the current climate.

The idea was initially rejected but through the pressure put on by England international, and his followers on social media, Prime Minister Boris Johnson decided to make a u-turn and pledged £120 million for the scheme to continue in the summer.

That's all down to Marcus Rashford, what a hero.
