'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.

I work for the hospital and there are so many white people that do not have insurance and on welfare. It’s funny to me that white people are in denial. They are so demanding when they came in and don’t have insurance. As if they are entitle to everything. All I do is SMDH and say what a waste of white skin…lol

Most people on welfare are white, that's the funny irony. While there may be a disproportiante number of blacks on welfare, whites still consume the vast amount of resources in that particular program.

A black kid asks his mother, "Mama, what's a Democracy?"

"Well, son, that's when white folks work every day so we can get all our benefits,
you knows like free cell phones for each family member, rent subsidy, food
stamps, WIC, free healthcare, utility subsidy, & the list goes on & on, you knows".

"But mama, don't the white people get pissed off about that?"

"Sure they do, that's called racism!"

Once you wipe the hobo-mud off his face, it's always a white guy looking for beer money at the end of the freeway off-ramp.

Ha! Talk about hypocritical. I can't believe a pageant would allow anyone associated with them to go on Big Brother in the first place...let alone actually encourage other young girls to watch and vote for their "role model". WTF?? Who watches the show to find role models? A lot of sex maybe, making out, barely-there outfits....but to watch their role model? Pageants promote 'wholesome values' and they're turning to Big Brother???!!!
