Katie Price has sparked controversy by repeating a message on Twitter that she should make up false claims about journalists.

The 32-year-old 'retweeted' a fan's suggestion that she should "start writing" that News of The World showbiz journalist Dan Wootton "has HIV" and that the Daily Star's Gemma Wheatley "has crabs".

"They make up #!@%*# so y cant u? (sic)" the original message read.

Journalists and members of the social networking website condemned Price for reposting the message a day after World Aids Day.

Price has since deleted the message, while the original poster of the message has deleted their entire account.

The glamour model later wrote: "Apoligies everyone especially (dan and gemma) that RTwas accidental.Be great if they'd admit when they get something wrong but wont happen!"

Earlier on Price replied "good idea" to a fan who suggested that she should start her own newspaper called The Daily Truth.
