While most of the Big Brother house guests are getting settled into the new season, others are already getting in trouble! A few days ago, we told you about the racial slurs and offensive comments being thrown around the house – well guess what? Two contestants have been fired from their real jobs over the remarks!
Big Brother 15 has already proved to have its fair share of controversial contestants. Two of those include GinaMarie Zimmerman and Aaryn Gries, both of whom have been tossing around racial slurs and homophobic comments while the live feeds have been rolling. Now, both women have to pay the price for their comments as they’ve both been fired from their jobs.
GinaMarie, who worked as a coordinator with East Coast USA Pageant, Inc. was recently snagged referring to welfare as “N****r insurance,” and it cost her that very position. “We have never known this side of GinaMarie or have ever witnessed such acts of racism in the past. We are actually thankful that this show let us see GinaMarie for who she truly is,” the company told TMZ revealing that GinaMarie has been fired.
Meanwhile, Aaryn, who works for a modeling agency, was also fired for her racial and anti-gay comments that were revealed over the live feeds. The agency told TMZ: “Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone,” explaining that Aaryn has been let go from the company.
Is anyone else excited to see that these offensive ladies got what was coming to them? Too bad they can’t be dropped from the show. In response to the comments, CBS released the following statement:
“Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on Big Brother, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”
