'Big Brother' GinaMarie

FIRED from Day Job

for Racist Comments

"Big Brother" contestant GinaMarie Zimmerman is gonna have a rude awakening when she leaves the house -- she's been FIRED from her day job after dropping the N-bomb.

TMZ has learned ... East Coast USA Pageant, Inc. is cutting ties with the 32-year-old pageant coordinator ... claiming they were shocked GZ could "display such acts of hate and racism."

As we previously reported, GinaMarie referred to welfare as "n**ger insurance" ... and the comments were captured on "Big Brother's" uncensored live Internet feed.

East Coast USA says GinaMarie has been an employee for 5 years -- but insist, "We have never known this side of GinaMarie or have ever witnessed such acts of racism in the past."

The pageant says, "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."

"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."

A rep for the organization tells us they are especially upset because they encouraged their pageant girls to watch GinaMarie on the show and vote for her ... thinking she would be a role model.

With a last name like 'Zimmerman' I'm sure people will be wondering if she is related to the "racist" George Zimmerman, who is on trial for the killing of Travon Martin. Get your staff on that Harvey and let us know if they are related.

Is she being racist, or just truthful with a fact? Look at the behavior of the black community, using welfare as a career choice, rather than a hand up. The black community churns out more illegitimate children than puppy mills.

A black man in Nashville, Orlando Shaw, has 22 children by 14 women. A black man in Knoxville, Desmond Hatchett, has 24 children by 11 women. Who do you think pays for this behavior? The taxpayers, that's who.

What is going on with all of these people? They don’t get it. When you say something NEGATIVE, you are not getting fired for being a racist, you are getting fired because it makes the company you work for look bad. No one is going to allow ONE person to bring their entire company down. If you want to be racist, that is fine, but do it at home, so you won’t end up losing your job. Black people are not the only people on welfare. What about places where there are no blacks at all, and people are on welfare. Most of the immigrants here are on welfare, and there are a lot. Who cares though. People can think whatever they want, just don’t say it on national television.

Boy o Boi, you people and your stats and percentages of who accounts for most welfare cases crack me up! So lame. I could point out a lot of bad things about white folks, but who cares! The N word is just not acceptable coming out ANYbody's mouth, white or black! Get over yourselves PLEASE
