Big Brother: Jay warned over offensive quote

Jay  was warned by Big Brother yesterday after reciting a quote from the film ‘White Chicks’.

Viewers last night seen Big Brother reminding Jay of the rules and how comments inside the house can be interpreted outside. While outside in the garden with fellow housemates including Anton and Maisy, Jay said: “Once you go black, you need a wheelchair.” The quote was made following Faye caressing Anton’s chest. Jay later told Aaron about the incident which prompted an upset Aaron to tell Big Brother about how is wife was in a wheelchair for a year.

Big Brother was at the centre of a major race row in 2007 when Jade Goody along with Jo O’Meara and Danielle Lloyd were accused of racism against Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty. The international incident led to more constraints put on Big Brother. In the ‘normal’ series which followed that year, contestant Emily Parr was thrown out of the house after she used an racially offensive word.
