'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.

Well I am a proud African American and it doesn't matter what color you are, if you are a racist, you can't hide it forever. GinaMarie seems to just be a product of her environment. The sad part is that she probably don't know why she made that comment. Racism will never. Only a faithful few of us really and truly believe in equality for all.

What the contestants are doing is rude and utterly offensive any way you slice it. How can you be so ignorant as to make these comments knowing that America is watching 24/7. Especially but not limited to the comment in regards to Helen an Asian contestant on the show (seeing as how Julie is Asian herself). Now CBS may edit things the way that they want them to be depicted and that's a whole other issue but to blatantly not show these contestants for who they truly are is wrong. No I'll tell you all what is not right about this situation. I pay for the live feeds. I also have sent in text message votes for who I think should be the MVP this week. What about the countless thousands who also pay for "who they think is playing the game the best?" I tell you my vote may have just gone a different direction. It is not fair for CBS to edit out this crucial information. They need to characterize these people as they truly are and stop protecting the truth from the viewers. Just because someone has a pretty face doesn't mean that they are genuine good. That is why Gina Marie and Aaryn have both lost their jobs.

Everyone is so caught up on the N word that she used. She also told the Asian or Oriental girl whichever is proper to "shut up and go make us some rice", she made a Gay comment. This girl is as racists as they come and she should be fired from her job this has nothing to do with free speech it is all about morals

Welfare is blacks "401" k plan from FREE SLAVE LABOR FOR 400 YEARS!!
So if whites get welfare, looks like "once again", there
riding off of hardworking black slaves backs!!

and last but not least..while you white folks is always referring to blacks not accomplishing anything...they accomplished what whites would never have done: tolerate crakas bull$hit for 400 years.

If whites hate blacks so much, why didnt ya use the same ships you kidnapped blacks in, to send them back to africa...huh????

because whites are miserable as $HIT!! and misery loves company!! ha ha ha..
