Myspace celebrity Tila Tequila has been removed from the Big Brother house after comments that she released on social media made her position in the house “untenable”
A spokesperson for Channel 5 said,
“Unfortunately, Channel 5 and Endemol did not know about the views and attitudes Tila had expressed in social media postings prior to her involvement in Celebrity Big Brother.
When they were brought to our attention, she was called to the Diary Room for a discussion with producers and was subsequently removed from the house.
The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the programme was untenable.”
In December 2013 Tila had her Facebook account closed because of a “pro-Hitler” article called “Why I Sympathize with Hitler: Part I”.
The MySpace star argued that her article was not anti-Semitic, and was instead a tribute to “a man who was not a coward, [but] stood up for his country in a DESPERATE TIME OF NEED”.
She posted comments and a picture of herself in a Nazi costume in front of a picture of Auschwitz. Her page has been re-instated, and she has over 2 million likes.
