'Big Brother' GinaMarie

FIRED from Day Job

for Racist Comments

7/3/2013 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"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.

This is so sad. It used to be growing up in my neighborhood that we would call each other funny names base on their ethnicity,, Mic for the Irish, Spic for the Spanish, I was called a Heb for being Jewish,,, we loved it and its how we got along... its too bad that political correctness has taken that away and now everyone is supposed to be mindless robots and ignoring our differences instead of acknowledging them and making fun of ALL of our differences.

This incident proves the old adage: "Beauty is only skin deep." This woman is smoking HOT! But, what a dimwit! Her employer is right to fire her @SS!

It just goes to show that you can be very beautiful on the outside and absolute NAZI evil on the inside at the same time! As a guy, she literally scares me. Most guys would ask her out...and just like Jodi Arias, be as evil as Hitler or Satan or Bin Laden or some Klan leader.

I mean LOOK AT HER! She looks great!...(on the inside). But, under the right cir***stances and in the right country, I literally can see her working at a death camp (on the inside).

BIG QUESTION: How many other really atttractive women harbor this kind of ugly, nasty hate???!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The outside (how someone looks) is just like wrapping paper on a gift (it means nothing, zero, nada). Now the inside....that's when you know whether a woman is truly beautiful or not. This looney girl is NOT!

If black people ever kidnap, rape, murder, enslave, and separate white families, you can use the "N" word anytime that you want. Until then, or until white people are brave enough to acknowledge their horrific act, tell your welfare jokes without the "N" word.

Ha Ha reading the other posts I see once again blacks have come around with the "there are more whites on welfare" fallacy but as usual they're clueless to one key fact.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau last year whites accounted for 78% of the population while blacks only accounted for 13%.

In other words there's about 500% more whites than blacks in America yet there's almost the same blacks as whites on welfare!

Ooops! Looks like da communatay been usin' Obama's ObamaCare math again!

Are people really naive enough to think people aren't racist (on a side note, calling welfare ni**er insurance doesn't necessarily make one a racist)? The reason her employer didn't know that side of her was because she was smart enough to keep it to herself. Just as most folks are. For example, do gay people really think all of their co-workers are OK with them and accept them? If they do, they are not facing reality. At least some of them aren't OK with it but they are just smart enough to keep their comments to themselves because they know they'll get fired otherwise.

blah blah blah How many times can this be said? Darker skinned folk say it ALL THE F'N TIME!!! They also say cracker which is the exact opposite meaning. If both can be said by one party and not both by the other, then that in itself is racist.
We are all humans, lets stop being so damn ridiculous. True racism is only being kept alive by the constant different treatment of the paler skinned.
