EXCLUSIVE: Rafi Raja, who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent last year, has hit back at controversial columnist Katie Hopkins after she tweeted about him.
On 10 May last year, Hopkins posted up a tweet on her Twitter account saying: “Rafi Raja doesn’t have a day job. He is unemployed. In Birmingham. Who’d a thought #bgt #sunbgt”.

Speaking to the Yorkshire Standard, Rafi said: “Katie Hopkins is a cyber bully, and I know how to take on bullies.
“She has totally made a fool out of herself as well thinking I am from Birmingham, when the general public who hate her corrected her that I am a man from Bradford. She’s a confused admirer.”
Rafi performed a self-taught routine at the Britain’s Got Talent auditions last year.
His audition has been seen over 800,000 times on YouTube.
