'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.

It just saddens me that in 2013 you still have such racism in our country. I was hoping that they would release both participants from the Big Brother House

Actually CBS should take them off the show, because of the racial remarks that the 3 people made on national tv, there is no excuse for that type of behavior, I am pleas that the companys that these 3 work for will be fired as soon as they leave the show.

She is ignorant number one ****** means trash. But how the hell is that insurance. It is a crutch to help people through hard times. True you have sorry ass people that use it as a means of life. But her stupid ass is going to need it when she comes out of that house, Good luck finding a job. Dumb Bitch.

GinaMarie, remember, you are not safe from racist remarks either. You'd better make sure there is nothing about you to poke fun at before you poke fun at other people. Explanation: you have a New Joysey accent, and it's not the most flattering thing in the world.

Hello    

I say the N word 50 times a day as do most. Why are we all running from our own shadows to pretend we don't say and think these things. We are firing hot girls because they don't like ***s or blacks....lmao!

I don't believe Zimmerman is a racist. He got caught up in the moment and just got his a-- kicked by Travon. It unfortunately cost Travon his life. How would anyone feel if a stranger was following them, approached them, a fight ensued, and the aggressor lost the fight?
