'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.

Freedom of speech anyone? Seriously. We're shooting ourselves in the foot with all of this PC Garbage. Let people speak their minds, if we don't, we will never know who truly feels what.

American adults set a very bad example for the youth culture, then they blame them for copying that very bad example. Disturbed society.

Seriously, my white people need to quit whining that it's too hard to be a decent human. Go around and say anything you want and quit crying about freedom of speech and political correctness "stopping" you from talking like *******s, because you clearly demonstrate that it doesn't.

How come a whole country dislikes the blacks... could it be they are whiners and complainers ? Could it be they destroy a neighborhood and drive price of homes folks have worked their whole lives for? Could it be they try to scare others with bullying? come on look at the real picture... we are different ...own it!

GM is not a role model. She is pretty on the outside but she opens her mouth and the truth and ugliness shines bright.
I would not let her be a role model for my dog. She is one ugly person ..

If you're surprise by this, you're a moron.

If she keeps on saying 'f*g' all the time, Amanda may also end up losing her real estate job.

Seriously, if you don't want your words to hurt your professional and personal life, don't be dumb enough to put yourself on display, 24/7, for the whole world to judge you.

And, by the way, thanks, TMZ staffer, for lifting almost word-for-word what I said about Aaryn's firing on a previous post. Nice to see you care.

And look at all the athletics that are churning out babies with multiple baby mamas and don't want to support them. Some of these guys have 12 kids, some are just beginning the sex adventure. But the courts are lack on them to support the kids. And the baby mamas, yes they are so proud to have a kid by an athletic. They jump in bed at the first chance.

omg. I just googled this tramp. HYSTERICAL. now, don't get me wrong- she crossed a line, should be fired, who-the-hell-does-she-think-she-is-she's-not-from-1950's-alabama, racist pig, etc.... but, the very idea that it took her using the n-word for them to fire her for being a role model... WHAT?!?! have they seen her modeling photos... and did they see that she was a bud light "fantasy" girl... I mean, she has WHORE written all over her! it should not have taken them to the "n" word to know this girl wasn't a good spokesperson or role model!!!! wow.
