Another day… another offensive remark… Another wake up call.
Big Brother contestant and former boarding school girl Caroline Wharram (20) was given an official warning this week after describing former Los Angeles gangster Adam Kelly as a “gorilla”.
Wharram ranted to a fellow housemate,
“Adam is just an irritating, he’s not even funny. He snores like a family of dragons, it’s just rude. He’s horrible. He’s just a ridiculous ridiculous gorilla, bowl hair cut, no sanitation, he’s just disgusting. ”
After she was called to the Diary Room and told that, “Big Brother does not tolerate this language and so is giving you a formal warning. If you use this language again Big Brother may have no choice but to remove you from the house.” Wharram said,
“Sorry… that was really, really horrible. I don’t know why I said that. No nasty connotations were meant. I really didn’t mean it at all, I just didn’t think.”
First footballer Mario Balotelli is depicted as the giant ape King Kong in a cartoon and now this.
Black males publicly being likened to a primate has made a spectacular comeback I see. Oh happy days!
