Racist Celebrity Big Brother

Well as I said before, I haven't watched it since Jackiey left...but if you are making fun of someone for the way they speak, and in this instance it happens to be because of her Indian accent, then yes, that's a form of racism.

Ok, let me as you this, pretend Shilpa was Irish and she is set in a household that is VERY British (because context is everything)...now think of the type of comments that have been made etc., would this change how you would be reacting to this situation?

Aslo note that Dirk mentionned that he only understands 70% of what the Jade's clan says: their accent is thicker than her "indian accent"...

Complaints have now reached 10,000 and the live streaming was taken off air for 50 minutes.

Systematically?
With a clear pattern as seen in the converse?

No doubt BB took down the Live Feed while they chatted to the Girls.

I think their editing has got a little bit out of hand.

These are the competition.

It will be interested to see if Ch4 tries to justify, or if they will be objective in their report.

I trust they will.

Either way BB which was down to 3 million viewers will easily I predict be nearing 8 million tonight.

Channel 4 News covered it and Jon Snow the News Reader spoke of SHIPLA

He then proceded to cover up his error!!

Going back to last year Jodie was bullied horrificly but because her skin colour is white/orange nothing was done bar about 20 complaints!

It is allowed to mispronounce a name.

Not to do it in purpose and be proud of it.
