The controversial TV star had to be rescued by paramedics after she collapsed following a “dose of ketamine.”
While Katie Hopkins, 42, received some backlash for taking the drug, many people on social media are claiming she took the Class B drug for her epilepsy condition.
Some fans are now wishing the former Apprentice star well, insisting her epilepsy was to blame for the scary episode.
“Not a big fan of her myself but wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy!” wrote one person, while a second said: “Hope she’s OK. Get well Katie”.
“Like her not Epilepsy is horrendous and if anyone went through what your body goes through during and after a seizure you wouldn’t wish it on anyone [sic],” insisted a third.
Meanwhile, another sympathetic fan added: “She’s still a human being I just hope she is ok as she is a mother and has people in her life who love her”.

On Sunday, the former Celebrity Big Brother star took to Twitter to share a photo of herself face-down on the pavement while being assisted by paramedics.
In the photo, the mother-of-three is seen being injected with a needle while surrounded by a team of doctors.
“Grateful thanks to the South African emergency service for putting me back together. Leaving it all on the road, to tell the truths not being told. *ketamine 1 / Hopkins 0.”
Katie, who suffers from epilepsy, is in South Africa to film a project.
Speaking about her epilepsy in the past, Katie said: “I felt worse in some ways when I was diagnosed. I never thought of myself as ‘epileptic’ or odd – which is pretty much what people think, isn’t it? That epilepsy equals odd.
“That’s harsh, but true. I think many people have the same preconceptions – that people with epilepsy fall on the floor and froth at the mouth.”
In March last year she underwent a 12-hour brain operation to treat the condition, which has “plagued her” since she was 19.
