'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.

As far I'm concerned you can think whatever you want about different races, gays, women or cottage cheese for all I care. But when you broadcast your precious thoughts trying to get attention or a rise out someone, take what you get and STFU! Of course now that her silicone a** is fired, she may want to look into said 'insurance'.

The casting was done purposely, there are extensive interviews, questionnaires even visits to a psycologist before anyone is picked for this type of show. What are the odds of 2 or more people saying racist things and the tv execs not pulling the plug on them? That means they expected it to happen! Right in time for he Travon Martin case, people stop being puppets!!

One more sycophant down.

Too bad innocent dogs in dog pounds are euthanized, but ugly bitch is placed on a pedestal and is forgiven for racism.

There are neglected kids who have no parents. They need money. They're the ones who grow up with abuse because the inadequate "caregivers" try to make them feel guilty for living with their money, even though they suffered with negligence, poor nutrition & bad education.

The stupid people who have irresponsible sex and think they deserve welfare for 10-22 babies are the problem.
Morons on TV shows are not worth anyone's time.

I guess they are sad to see that people have opinions and aren't just automatons who follow orders. I think she was making a joke, as in ha ha ha. It is like when they say N rig for jerry rig. It is just an expression.


Every other ethnic group puts up with expressions about them without people making them into public spectacles of humiliation. How about being gypped for being ripped off? How about running around like a wild Indian? People even say things like Jew down for bargain down a price.


You have to do business with people in life even if you don't want to marry them. What people do in their private time should be their own business, as far as making an off hand remark.


Just because you persecute someone for what they say, does not make you a good person. People think they can buy instant morality by selling out someone else. It is not that easy. Developing character takes hard work and humility. You can't just write off everyone who is offensive or of a different mind.


No one gets fired when the blacks constantly blame all of their problems on whites. Every time they get arrested, it is like, well it is cause the whites are racist. There are plenty of whites who aren't, but are people making examples out of the blacks who do this? They are promoting their own stereotypes.
