Tens of thousands of people have signed a tongue-in-cheek online petition calling for the UK government to swap controversial reality TV star Katie Hopkins for 50,000 refugees.
The Change.org petition was started by Tickhill resident Ben Fletcher, who said he was "bored" one last week so set it up as a way to try to raise awareness in a humorous manner.
In a matter of days, more than 51,000 people have put their name to the call - and even Hopkins herself has tweeted a link to the site.
On the petition, Fletcher said it was "clear" the UK needed to do more to help refugees fleeing war-torn Syria.
He said he never expected to gain more than 100 signatures, but was delighted that it had helped get people talking about the need to do more to help refugees.
"It was never meant in bad taste. There is a serious point behind this petition and that is that there are thousands and thousands of people who need our help," he said.
He has received numerous offers of a pint as thanks for setting the petition up, he added, but urged people to donate the money to any one of the aid agencies working to help those in need, including Doctors Without Borders, the Refugee Council, Unicef and Save the Children.
It comes after Hopkins described migrants as "cockroaches" in a column for the Sun earlier this year, and said she would "use gunships" to stop migrants entering Europe from Libya.
She also told radio station LBC she would like to "burn all the boats" in Africa.
