'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.

Where did CBS find all this trash to put on one show and why haven't they tossed every one of their sorry asses to the curb?

I'm thinking with a name like "Zimmerman" she may be Jewish. I wouldn't think that any Jewish people would be racist considering what happened to 6 and a half million of them.

Was she fired for the n-word or for stating her opinion? Seems it always just gets bundled up as 'hate'.

Dumb question, but legally can she be fired for something she did not do on the job and said elsewhere? I do not see how this is legal at all.

I call BS on the employer. You can't tell me that in FIVE years that she never demonstrated her bigotry, when she did it in a weeks time, on camera, to practical strangers. Plus, any white person from Staten Island is going to be a bigot, plain and simple.

Why can't we all get along and forget all this crap. We all are different in many ways colour, hair, and the lists can go on. One thing for sure we all came in the world the same, we bleed the same red, and we all will die eventually.
