Katie Price uses the N-Word twice on live TV

CRITICISED: Katie Price used the 'N-Word' whilst speaking about the online abuse faced by her son

KATIE PRICE shocked viewers on Wednesday morning (April 26), when she used the word 'n***er' twice while discussing the online abuse her son Harvey, 14, has been subjected to.

Making an appearance on ITV's This Morning to discuss her petition for stronger penalties against trolls, the mother-of-five first uttered the N-word when she revealed that her son was described online as a 'black, blind n***er'.

She then used it again, prompting host Phillip Schofield to point at her open-mouthed as he said: 'Hey, you don’t need to say it again.’

As soon as the former glamour model uttered the offensive phrase a second time, viewers took to Twitter to express their shock, with one writing: 'Jesus Christ... Katie Price coming straight out with the N word on live TV. At least abbreviate it or something instead.'

Another wrote: 'Holy s**t, Katie Price just said two racial slurs live on TV, with a third echoing their surprise as they stated: 'As if Katie Price just used the N word live on #ThisMorning.'

During her interview on the daytime show, the former glamour model spoke about her goal to lobby the government to impose tougher penalties on online trolls. "Obviously, I've had it online, but I've become immune to it - although why should anyone ever have to get used to that?," she said.

"But when it comes to Harvey, every day people say things about him, but there's some that's so bad that I was like, "How can people get away with this?"'

'Is it strong enough to call my son a black blind n***er, is that not abuse? They called him a goll**og, that's my son, is that acceptable? How much do I have to take, so in the end, the people who have said this, I put it online and said, "Does anyone know this person?"

"It would be refreshing if these trolls, these online bullies, I'd like one of them to have the balls for me to talk to, or interview them and say, "What is that goes through your head, why do you do it?" Someone has to sit down and take time to do this, what goes through their head?'

As the interview came to an end, Katie stressed that her goal was not about taking away freedom, as she said: 'I'm not taking away freedom of speech - everybody can say things. But you know when you're crossing the line.'

Katie - who also has children Junior, 11, and Princess, nine, from her marriage to Peter Andre and three-year-old Jett and two-year-old Bunny with husband Kieran Hayler - is campaigning for tougher legal action against online bullies.
