Idle Idol.

Big Brother speedy reaction results in our first unlucky contestant having been shown the door for using racist language.

I use the term "unlucky" in its loosest sense, you understand.

This is Emily...... 19 year old drama student.... White, with rich parents, who have pretty much cushioned the girl throughout her short existence.

She dislikes: People who tell white lies, are ignorant or deliberately stupid.

Here's part of a transcript which resulted in her expulsion:

Emily: (referring to Charley dancing/pushing her hips forward) You pushing it out you nigger.
Nicky: (shocked laughter) Em, I can't believe you said that.
Charley: You are in trouble.
Emily: Don't make a big thing out of it then. I was joking.

I think the definition of ignorance and deliberate stupidity is to call a black person a nigger as a joke on national television. I think it goes slightly beyond ignorance and stupidity when Channel 4 are still reeling from the last racist episode a few months ago.

Agree? Disagree?? Don't care????

Now...... Who was saying that all publicity is good publicity???

That's one car I won't be buying.

  3. Foxi, here we have a 19 year old airhead South London Girl who's grown up listening to commercial hip hop music and hears the 'N' word used on a daily basis in the lyrics of the songs she listens to. How can anyone really criticise her for repeating what she hears every day, in common usage, by what are, essentially, her peers? She can be accused of sheep like unoriginality, she can be accused of unthinking stupidity, but I don't think she can be accused of racism. Channel 4 have actually taken the easy option by evicting her - a more responsible act would have had her in the diary room with Big Brother grilling her and establishing whether she had any concept of how her actions appeared to others. They may also have discovered whether it was a deliberate ploy on her part to gain a massive publicity boost for her post BB career.

  4. I have seen some of this year's "Big Brother" and my lord, some of those girls in there are so immature and stupid - it's unbelievable! Little things wind them up and they are so full of their own self-importance. Mind you, I don't like hypersensitivity with regard to language use. Personally I would never use terms like "nigger" or the arguably more offensive "Pakki" but there's a lot worse things said in this world that are beyond the racist spectrum - t6ake that bitch in "The Apprentice" who effectively dissed all northerners...
