'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.

people need to stop acting as if they haven't said anything bad or thought anything bad in their lives. we have all said and thought inappropriate things in our lives and anyone who says otherwise is a damn liar. there are worse things in the world than this. if people are gonna be fired for saying and thinking inappropriate things then everybody needs to be fired. it's stupid, get over it, every person on this planet has said and thought terrible things. i'll clue you people in on a little secret, people will continue to say and think terrible things and you know what, it doesn't make you a bad person, it just confirms that you're like everyone else. stop with the pc crap, i'm not holier than thou and no one else is either. just be honest with yourselves.

Meanwhile 400 blacks in Greensboro are rioting the other night. In Cleveland OH 2 weeks ago a group of 40 to 50 blacks were running around HITTING WHITE PEOPLE IN THE FACE. And no one says a thing. This country is being destroyed and you say a word that BLACKS SAY ALL THE TIME and you lose your career over it? Who's racist again??

This sounds real. I don't know if she's a racists, but the words she used was extremely untasteful! The bit with Paula Dean is that the True Facts came out just yesterday! After all the damage had been done! In either care - What happened to Truth in Journalism? I Sincerely wonder what Peter Jennings would say about this if he was still alive/? Peace Be Unto You All and GOD Bless! Jane.
