Racist Celebrity Big Brother
 
# 1 : Tuesday 16-1-2007 @ 18:08
 
 
Its been on the british news all day and even in the irish news about the thousands of complaints that have accused a few members of celebrity big brother of racism and bullying towards Shilpa!

Personally I have found one or two comments to be borderline racist and ignorant but do find there is a huge rubbing of egos here where the rough have the edge!

From day one, especially from Jade's mother.

It has been painfully obvious.

This has been discussed in depth on the actual thread but perhaps not a bad idea to have it here as it is quite topical today.

Channel 4 just released a statement saying:
"Matters of bullying or racial abuse in any form are taken extremely seriously by Channel 4 and Endemol. The nature of the show often includes incidents where conflicts arise and housemates are encouraged to resolve issues among themselves.

"Housemates are closely monitored at all times to ensure they have the appropriate support inside the house which includes being able to talk in confidence to producers. Shilpa herself has not voiced any concerns of racial slurs or bullying against her.

"Appropriate measures to reprimand individual behaviour would take place where necessary."

Personally I don't think any racism is intended and if we were to go down that road Jermaine and Shilpa are both guilty of it as much as the others.

The Bullying is another matter perhaps.

Jade is being influenced by Jo and Danielle in what I see as schoolyard play.

Jade is gullible - Adele influenced her before and it is happening again.

Also in tonights highlight show Shilpa will have a DiaryRoom rant that will quash all Racist Theories apparently.

It will be interesting to watch, BB are obviously putting this in to reassure people.

I agree with their reasoning that housemates should sort this out themselves.

I think its more bullying than racist. She's a pretty girl and they're pretty jealous of that.

agreed thomas when you look at Shilpa beside Jade you are left waiting for that dog to bark at you! It sounds more like school yard tricks than the behaviour of adult women Jade seems to be someone who is really just being used for ratings and lets face it we all love to look at car crashes!

Elat -agreed that would be racism but the fact of the matter is that word was never used.

Channel4 bleeped it out and people assumed it was paki!
