'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.

She said words. Words don't hurt. Put on your big boy and big girl pants America, and get the f*ck over it. People say stupid crap. People say dirty words. No one cares, other than the media.

Its seems almost as if the more technologically advanced we become, the more idiotic people get, like its inversely proportionate or something! Look, we all know the world is full of racism and each and every one of us has done something that could be considered racist at some point in our lives. BUT..when you go on a tv show, where you KNOW cameras are on you 24/7...and you KNOW how sensitive people are about some issues, and you KNOW.. you work for an organization which cannot be associated with such things and you KNOW millions of people are watching you....shouldnt you also KNOW not to be dumb jackass!!!

Keeping It Real    

she should have called it what it is really called... Obamasurance the new welfare. Dont want to work? Feel like staying home all the time? Dont want to pay bills? No problem.... Obamasurance will steal from those who work and give it to you and you can stay home and do drugs or whatever it is you do or dont do for that matter. SMH

I do not condone what she said, and she should be held accountable, but I starting to think people, companies are using others mistakes to "put themselves over", and corps quickly to throw everyone and anyone under the bus to say "look how sensitive and compassionate we are." With an all ready to go press release. A statement from an employer that no one has heard until today... It's ridiculous. To me it comes across has pandering and patronizing. Since "she has never shown this side to them", perhaps suspend her and and make her attend sensitivity training, and no press release needed.

en Todo Momento!!    

why do they only have a 'don't ask don't tell' for the h0m0s? why not just extend it to all 'lifestyles'? don't 'inquire' people about their personal beliefs, and such things would not effect anyone. only these folks who want to all freudian 'dissect' your psyche get these kinds of results. don't ask don't tell. just leave it at that.
