Racism in the Big Brother House

January 17, 2007 / Posted by:

Thousands of viewers of the popular British reality show, Celebrity Big Brother, are losing it after several houseguests have used racial slurs against Bollywood actress, Shilpa Shetty. Jade Goody, Danielle Lloyd and Jo O’Meara constantly make fun of Shilpa’s accent and her ethnic background.

The Indian actress has been in tears over the way she’s being treated on the show. It is rumored that Jack Tweedy has also referred to her as a “Paki” several times, but the network denies this.

Viewers have complained to the police and urged them to investigate this matter. An online petition is currently going around asking Channel 4 to stop the hate going on in the house and to stop “sugar-coating” the harassment Shilpa is receiving. Here’s examples of some racist hate towards Shilpa:

“They eat with their hands in India, don’t they – or is that China? You don’t know where her hands have been.” Danielle Lloyd

“She wants to be white. She’s a dog” Danielle Lloyd

They also refer to her as “the Indian.”

Shilpa shouldn’t take this! If I was her I’d started beating those hos in their sleep and if producers kicked me out, I’d SUE! Seriously, homegirl needs to start taking action and kicking ass! Jade Goody has no right to call someone else a dog when most dogs look like supermodels compared to her fugly fug face!
