And the Big Brother fallout continues…
Cast member GinaMarie Zimmerman, who offensively referred to welfare as "n**ger insurance" during the CBS show’s live broadcast, has been fired by the East Coast USA Pageant, Inc.
Though GinaMarie has been under their employ for the last five years, the company said they could not believe her "acts of hate and racism."
"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. We would never want her to be a role model to our future contestants."
East Coast USA then added:
"In a business where we are surrounded by beauty every day we are saddened to see something so ugly come from someone we put on a very high pedestal."
This news follows that of GinaMarie's co-star Aaryn Gries', who was fired by her modeling agency for using racial slurs on the show, too!
CBS!!! Get a grip on your talent!
