It's been a dramatic week for Katie Hopkins. Well, pretty much every week is dramatic when you're a professional outspoken columnist person, but this has been a pretty crazy time even for Katie.

Over the weekend, Katie came under fire when she posted a serious of controversial tweets about depression in the wake of the tragic Germanwings air crash. And now she's been accused of inciting racial hatred in Rochdale - and reported to the police by a Labour MP.

Simon Danczuk accused the columnist of "causing trouble" to create headlines, and has sent an email to Greater Manchester's Police Commissioner, Tony Lloyd, asking him to investigate.

And according to BBC Newsbeat, the claim has now been forwarded to Greater Manchester Police.

Mr Danczuk attended the raising of a Pakistani flag over Rochdale's town hall to mark National Pakistan Day - and Katie responded to it by posting a series of tweets that upset the MP.

Things kicked off after Katie posted these tweets, which Simon claims tries to link the Pakistani flag with the grooming of young girls in the area:

Simon explained why he thought Katie should have been reported:

"It is not right that somebody who has little to do with Rochdale incited hatred of this kind.

"Rochdale is a very cohesive community - people work well together.

"Of course there are tensions, like there are in other communities, but people rub together really well and we don't need outsiders like Katie Hopkins to come in and cause trouble just for the sake of causing trouble and creating Sun headlines."

After the reports - Katie hit back with this tweet. So things are unlikely to calm down any time soon. But what do you think - should Katie be reported to the police? Comment below.
