Katie Hopkins has been reported to police after being accused of inciting racial hatred.
The Devon businesswoman and reality TV star has been accused by a Labour MP of associating the Pakistani flag with the sexual abuse of young girls in Rochdale.
Simon Danczuk, the MP for Rochdale, said he had sent a complaint to the Greater Manchester Police Commissioner asking him to investigate whether a crime had been committed.
Hopkins, 40, tweeted after Danczuk attended a ceremony to mark National Pakistan Day.
She wrote: "Raising a Pakistani flag in Rochdale is not helping community cohesion. it is inflammatory. @SimonDanczuk you & your party disgust me."
The columnist also posted a picture of eight men convicted of child exploitation offences, asking Mr Danczuk if they were his friends too.
Explaining his decision to report Hopkins, Danczuk said:
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.
Hopkins is yet to directly comment on the allegations.
