Anybody Watch Big Brother? (in Off-topic)

On the news recently it says Shilpa is getting racially abused by 2 of

the other members which i assume will be Jade and Danielle, however

i don't think they abusing her because she's from another country

but because she does stupid things like pours a liquid substance with

bones in it down the toilet to block it up. Now who does that lol?

Just would like you people to take your comments on such a matter.

As there is alot of controvosy on the news about a little thing in a stupid game. =p

Just ignore the news, it doesn't help anybody.

Gandalf January 18 2007 3:04 PM EST

yeah but Jade's perfume has been taken off the shelves in

supermarkets because of this, yes she may be a little nasty to Shilpa

but i have to admit she is annoying with the silly little things. There

is also footage of an arabic man i think burning things because of it.

They may not be racially abusing her but they're certainly bang out of order the way they treat her. I'm not surprised there's been over 30,000 complaints to the TV watchdog about the behaviour.

As for Danielle, she's not smart enough to understand what racial abuse is. She's the ex-Miss UK (ex because she was having a "relationship" with one of the judges during the contest) who when asked, "Who was Winston Churchill" in a celebrity contest answered: "He was the first black President of America. There's a statue of him next to my house and it's black...".
She was referring to a bronze statue of Winston Chruchill near her home...

Honest, I don't watch the programme :) I just have to sit through it because wifey is addicted :/

Gandalf January 18 2007 3:08 PM EST

ahh you make me laugh G Beee, yeah Danielle is not the brightest

of sparks, i think Joe is worse than Jade, but thats my opinion

at least Jade says the things to her face and not behind her back

which is hurting. =( i get made to watch it by my mother too,

I don't actually like it. =p

Racism gets brought into everything these days and I find it rather insulting that a lot of things get banned through people misconstruing them.
I remember reading in The Sun once that Burger King had to change one of their deserts because when turned the wrong way the sauce on top shaped like an ice cream swirl looked like the word for Allah.
People are just overly sensitive about anything these days and take it as racial abuse (although in the UK if a white person is verbally or physically attacked it is not classed as a racial attack even if the circumstances make it probable.). Unfortunately, as a multicultural society we are forced to pussyfoot around so as not to cause trouble.

Ah, G, my wife is addicted to it as well, watching the repeats in the morning if she missed it the night before, sometimes watching both.

But we don't watch it at all do we? ;)

I'll just be glad to see the back of Jade when she's evicted this week. Hopefully it'll be the end of her career as a 'celebrity' as well.

But her and her ignorant little cronies are a nasty piece of work. Racial abuse or not, dunno, who can say when we can't even say if what we're watching is for real or not. Especially as one of the staff on the programme has a job title of 'story editor'...

But it would be good if Jade was what killed off reality tv in the UK.

Gandalf January 18 2007 3:28 PM EST

yeah it looks like she will be, this move in her career was a bad one.

I don't think she will be as much as a celebrity anymore, like

for e.g Gareth Gates, he made 1 song then bahoom.... Were has

he gone lol. No Johnny we just watch it because the addicts watch

it hehe. Yeah i think Jade will be suprised when people boo her out

of the Big Brother house, but she shouldn't be for being so vile to

the young lady. =/

Ya seen that stuff in the American news about that.Ha who'd a thunk it would get to this side of the pond ?Makes me wish I could watch it.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] January 18 2007 10:51 PM EST

Oh it's def racial abuse. Mixed in with a healthy dose of schoolyard bullying...

Not that I've watched any of it. But I get enough reports. Hopefully this is the end of the line for BB and then the decline of 'Reality' TV...

From what I've been told, the actions of some people in that house sicken me.

"Racism gets brought into everything these days and I find it rather insulting that a lot of things get banned through people misconstruing them."

Oh Zog, I have a personal hate for when descrimination gets misinterpreted and just labelled as 'Racism'. I had to interrupt a whole staff INSET at school when the people 'Roleplaying' a discrimination senario claimed that one of the members of staff was being racially descriminated against by others due to her Religion.

That's not racial descrimination, but religious. I specifically asked if only members of the descriminated characters 'race' could follow her religion, to clarify the point.

It is one of the reason America is ridiculed by most of the intelligent free world.

Pitiful shows like that.
