British celeb Katie Hopkins advocated for euthanasia vans as her solution for Great Britain’s overcrowding problems when Radio Times' Michael Buerk interviewed her this week.

Hopkins, 40, who is a columnist for The Sun and is set to launch her own panel show, “If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World,” next month on TLC, voiced her concern to Buerk that one in three National Health Service hospital beds in the United Kingdom was occupied with elderly and “demented” people.

“We just have far too many old people. It's ridiculous to be living in a country where we can put dogs to sleep but not people,” Hopkins told Radio Times.

When Buerk asked Hopkins how she would solve the problem, she replied that sending euthanasia vans would do the trick.

“Easy. Euthanasia vans — just like ice-cream vans — that would come to your home. It would all be perfectly charming. They might even have a nice little tune they’d play,” Hopkins said. “I mean this genuinely. I’m super-keen on euthanasia vans. We need to accept that just because medical advances mean we can live longer, it’s not necessarily the right thing to do.”

This is not the first instance where Hopkins has sparked outrage for her unorthodox and unethical comments. In April, she received harsh criticism for her remarks in which she described migrants as "cockroaches" and "feral humans."

Despite the UN high commissioner for human rights denouncing her for "racist language" and comparing her views to that of "pro-genocide propaganda," The Guardian reported, Hopkins allegedly takes pride in never apologizing for anything she has ever said.

Although some do agree with her comments, many social media users have hurled their outrage and criticism at Hopkins in the wake of her remarks:
