MP Ben Bradshaw says he was shouted at by notorious reality TV star Katie Hopkins as he spoke to striking junior doctors.
The Labour MP for Exeter tweeted his 37,000 followers to tell them of the encounter with the controversial columnist, and received a number of replies in support.
Katie is no stranger to hospitals in recent months. In February the Devon business woman underwent brain surgery to treat her epilepsy, which has "plagued" her since she was 19.
Surgeons removed part of her brain in an operation to prolong her life expectancy, and she underwent a further operation to remove an infected scalp bone in March.
As well as receiving support against Katie Hopkins, Mr Bradshaw was also praised by the doctors he supported.
Katie Hopkins, who is from Exeter, is yet to respond to the comments.
She has previously branded junior doctors 'greedy'.
