  • Is it okay to say ‘Paki Bitch’ on TV if it’s bleeped out?


    by Kismet hardy
    15th January, 2007 at 3:30 pm    

    shilpa shettyI hate to do this to you. It’s downright dirty of me to urge you to lose precious minutes of your life peering into the intellectual chasm dug out by the pneumatic phrenic drill that is Celebrity Big Brother. Loathed as I am to insult your intelligence, I fear it would be foolish not to consider what is being deemed acceptable in the minds of those less fortunate in the intelligence stakes than those that subscribe to the PP ethics.

    For those who haven’t had the displeasure of watching that plankton-for-brains Jack referring to Shilpa Shetty as a ‘Paki bitch’, YouTube has the ghastly snippet. While it’s a fact that most of us have grudgingly accepted that we live in a time where ‘outrageous’ behaviour by non-entities is championed over the deeds of the genuinely talented, have we really become so complacent that we’ll allow a television show to get away with showing something that you wouldn’t stand for if you overheard it on the streets?

    We may all be feeling warm in the wool of our liberalism, but the fact that this didn’t raise so much as an eyebrow - nor the blatant racism masked beneath working class honesty displayed by Jade Goody’s pig-ignorant mother - means our fellow countrymen and women clearly don’t share the idea of equality PP is trying to promote.

    We can’t pretend it doesn’t happen behind closed doors, but does Channel 4 have the right to be so blasé about showing it? As if this is just another insult like ‘cow’ or ‘wanker’? Should they be allowed to get away with it? We’re always debating whether fascist organisations should be given the platform to spout their prejudices. Isn’t it far worse when a perceived celebrity such as this Jack Nobody, destined for exposure in mindless mags read by the impressionable during his miserable 15 minutes, can get away with expressing views that they perhaps didn’t think was acceptable to share?

    Sunny adds: Although the Daily Mirror hinted at it, Times of India is furious. ITV news also on the case.

    Update: This is hilarious. Complaints have now hit 3,500 and seem to be constantly rising. I’ve had 3 calls already this morning for comment and received 2 email forwards urging people to complain about this.

      [...] Perhaps I am being too diplomatic. Apparently slurs like “Paki Bitch” are being bandied about. That’s first order racism, and certainly didn’t make the cut yesterday evening. [...]




    1. Unity — on 15th January, 2007 at 3:42 pm  

      The other side of the coin, in a case like this, is whether its right to hold back from exposing the Jack Nobodies of this world as the racist scumbag idiots they are?

      I don’t watch BB anyway (and never have) - just not interested and not a voyeur by nature, but from all the mindless wittering in the press I’m guessing that Jack Who? is the boyfriend of Jade ‘Duh-huh’ Goody, who makes Beavis and Butthead look like Einstein and Hawking, in which case my response is fuck him, let him carry on and dig as big a hole for the pair of them as possible.

      The sooner they both return to the obscurity they merit the better it’ll be for us all, especially if they succeed in taking crap reality shows like BB down with them.

      If I want to see a freak show, I’ll go to a circus or a travelling fair, not turn on my TV.

    2. Sid Love — on 15th January, 2007 at 3:44 pm  

      It’s taken the CBB show to demonstrate to me that there is a world of difference between beautiful, intelligent, glamorous, generous, genuine stars and no-talent, mean-minded News of the World scrubbers and chav-estate symbols of mediocrity.

    3. Kismet Hardy — on 15th January, 2007 at 3:49 pm  

      But doesn’t it worry you that the kids that watch these shows and read that trash or going to be future voters? That their kids will pick on yours? Doesn’t Channel 4 have a duty not to normalise such insults (even give it that ‘hard’ kudos by bleeping it)?

    4. Leon — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:03 pm  

      Kis, while I understand your concerns I really think you’re taking this programme too seriously.

    5. Sahil — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:05 pm  

      Hi Kismet, actually I think BB have been quite clever about this:

      1.) The Bevis and Butthead wannabees look like prats, to you and me, BUT, if the tabloids also slaughter them, then the message to kids will be that if you hold such views, they are unacceptable. Now whether the media will care or not is a different matter.

      2.) If Shilpa doesn’t react to such childish stuff, you will just be far more admired than any of these lot. From the response of her PR manager, I think she’ll play it cool, and come out looking even better.

    6. Sahil — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:05 pm  

      Sorry “she’ll be admired”

    7. Chairwoman — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:10 pm  

      Kismet - No, never. I don’t watch Big Brother or any of its spin-offs. I never have. I can’t claim, like Unity, that I am not voyeuristic, but I certainly have no interest in nonentities, be they ‘celebrities’ or simply brain-dead, wittering on ad nauseum.

      I am appalled that Jade Goodey has been able to amass a small fortune and a cult following by being a combination of plug-ugly and cretinous. I am even more appalled that she is now dragging her equally so family along with her.

      As for Channel 4, a station that started up with the sort of philosophy that would not have tolerated such rubbish, they should immediately terminate Ms Goodey’s partner’s contract, and tell Ms Goodey, her partner and her mother that they are no longer welcome in the Big Brother House. They should do this on the programme, at peak viewing time, and tell them why.

      As I don’t watch the programme, I can’t protest by withdrawing my support, but no other action will do.

    8. Kismet Hardy — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:28 pm  

      I know Leon. But I fear for the children. Won’t someone please think of the children?

      Seriously, I had a fantasy about all our Holy Smokes & Tooti Nung type cousins going up to the BB house and dragging that prick out of the house and beat the crap out of them

      “then the message to kids will be that if you hold such views, they are unacceptable”

      Violent and not a solution I know, but it makes me feel better

    9. Sid Love — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:36 pm  

      I think you’re missing the point of CBB, Kismet.

      Jermaine, Dirk and Shilpa look and behave like normal, well-rounded people. They’re also real stars with real talent.

      Non-entity media-creations like Jade Goody and that minger who sucks footballer’s dick are dregs who’ll be forgotten by next season.

      You’re children are safe.

    10. Kulvinder — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:39 pm  

      But doesn’t it worry you that the kids that watch these shows and read that trash or going to be future voters?

      No.

      That their kids will pick on yours?

      I doubt they’d be part of the same ‘scene’

      Doesn’t Channel 4 have a duty not to normalise such insults (even give it that ‘hard’ kudos by bleeping it)?

      What do you mean by ‘normalise’?

      Kismet, i was hoping we’d get through the entire BB thing without having to make any threads. Go and stand in the corner.

    11. Kulvinder — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:42 pm  

      Oh btw a few years ago, my friends and i formed a theory on the eventual breakdown of civilisation occuring around the time a winner of the ‘ordinary’ BB was placed in ‘celebrity’ BB.

    12. Kulvinder — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:47 pm  

      Seriously, I had a fantasy about all our Holy Smokes & Tooti Nung type cousins going up to the BB house and dragging that prick out of the house and beat the crap out of them

      Or you can fulfill the purpose of the TV show and vent your carefully groomed hate in the direction of their bank accounts by voting him out.

      Go on Kismet, text them; meet your destiny as a viewer.

    13. Kismet Hardy — on 15th January, 2007 at 4:53 pm  

      “Kismet, i was hoping we’d get through the entire BB thing without having to make any threads. Go and stand in the corner.”

      I apologised on the outset dammit. You can commit a crime if you apologise for it first. Like when you say: ‘I’m not being racist but… I think black people are tall’

      I’m not giving money to BB. I just wish I had a cousin in a gang. Or any family, really

    14. El Cid — on 15th January, 2007 at 5:11 pm  

      I dunno Kizzie.
      Better out than in I say.
      I’ve tried my best not to watch this shite, but when soapstar superstar is the alternative, there’s an inevitable dumbass drift to Channel 4.
      Anyone with even a hint of social empathy knew it was coming after 5 mins. That Jacqui was gagging to abuse Shilpa — you could just tell. The BB people knew it was coming too. I reckon they planned it.
      Thing is, I don’t see why such criminal dregs should ever be given airtime. Sign of the times.
      I guess there could be a positive spin to this in the long run, but it leaves a bad taste in the mouth and is ultimately unfair on ordinary English folk. Still, it justifies all that inherent snobbishness.

    15. Unity — on 15th January, 2007 at 5:14 pm  

      Kismet:

      Regarding your ‘think of the kids’ point, what matters here is not what C4 choose to show on BB but how parents respond if their kids show signs of internalise crap like that spouted by Mr Nobody.

      In other words, in my household, it doesn’t matter what C4 thinks is and isn’t acceptable, what matters is what I and my partner think is and isn’t acceptable, and racism falls squarely into the unacceptable column.

      My 14yr old son is certainly aware of that both because on the very rare occasions he’s skirted close to that line - always parroting things heard from others rather than comments made with intent - he’s been picked up on his behaviour and put right immediately and because he’s know at age where we can discuss things intelligently. As it turns out he’s a good kid, and our efforts to bring him to think for himself have ‘borne fruit’ - I don’t need to tell him that racism is unacceptable because he’s reasoned that out for himself, much as he’s arrived at atheism by the same method.

      As for my daughter, who’s just turned seven, she’s still too young to have developed any sort of concept of ‘race’. She goes to a very ethnically mixed school and sees the kids around her as nothing more than other kids. That’ll change as she gets older, but as with my son, we’ll educate her as best we can and hope her values develop along the same lines.

      Sadly you can’t say for all parents, but nor can you expect TV companies to operate in loco parentis.

    16. Katy — on 15th January, 2007 at 6:10 pm  

      I hate Big Brother. It is mindless pap. Why on earth would I want to watch a load of people lying around on sofas talking crap? The Chairwoman and I do that already :-D

      *awaits blizzard of denials*

    17. Katy — on 15th January, 2007 at 6:20 pm  

      When I was a kid we were taught that we absolutely, absolutely Must Not say the words “paki” or “nigger” - they were far, far worse than “fuck” or even The C Word. I still find the use of the word “paki” shocking. Even if I am quoting someone who said it I find it quite difficult to say, and that’s because it was drummed into us so hard that these were taboo words.

      Now they seem to be becoming more mainstream. Does this mean that they are more acceptable, or does it mean that they are losing their power as people become more accustomed to living in a multiracial society?* Discuss.

      *either way I’d just rather people didn’t use them, myself

    18. sabinaahmed — on 15th January, 2007 at 6:23 pm  

      Unity

      Am so impressed,heartened and encouraged by your post. As a mother of two children I agree with every word you say. Majority of parents have this attitude,and that is why we have on an average much better race relations in this country.
      I have never watched that horror of a show which has mesmerised some people. It is a vehicle for dysfunctional and fading wannabes,and the likes of brain dead just doing what comes to them naturally.

    19. Katy — on 15th January, 2007 at 6:34 pm  

      Encouragingly, according to this it looks as if viewers are disgusted, and possibly voting with their feet remote controls.

    20. Katy — on 15th January, 2007 at 6:35 pm  

      WHERE IS MY AMUSING STRIKETHROUGH?

      grrrr

    21. Chairwoman — on 15th January, 2007 at 6:40 pm  

      When Katy was a child, we deliberately chose a school which had a diverse ethnic intake. In her reception class there were children from Nigeria, Pakistan, India, USA, Japan, Hong Kong, Burma, Italy, Egypt and France as well as the UK.

      We were very careful as to what views she was exposed to. If anybody used the N or P word in her hearing they were challenged. If a workman in our house made any racist comments, he was asked to leave immediately.

      One has to take extreme measures to ensure that the message hits home.

    22. William — on 15th January, 2007 at 6:47 pm  

      That comments made are simply not on and I am surprised it has not been made very public much sooner. It should be made plain that it’s appalling over the media and the press otherwise it can be seen as complicity.

      I tried to watch BB but my attention span only lasted 2 minutes so can’t speak much about what else has gone on.

    23. Kismet Hardy — on 15th January, 2007 at 7:05 pm  

      Just heard offcom has recieved approximately shitloads of complaints about it. Can’t link this up to anything because I’m never sure where I get my info from. But it’s true.

    24. Sid Love — on 15th January, 2007 at 7:13 pm  

      By the time I was 15, my family had lived in 4 countries and I was sent to “international schools” in all of them.
      Racism was an easy one to overcome but discerning the hierarchy of people based on “qualitative” differences has made me quite the Nazi. In this regard I would have no qualms in advocating sterilising people like Jack and Jackarse.

      I hope to use your approach with my kids Chairy.

      ‘Can’t link this up to anything because I’m never sure where I get my info from.’

      Um, you included the link in the original post. Shortly after saying it ‘didn’t raise so much as an eyebrow’.

      I’d love to say I’ve never watched this pool of vomit, but must confess to checking out George’s highlights. Sometimes when channel flipping I land on it and decide to see what the fuss is about. After about two minutes the same thought occurs. Which would be more fun, watching another minute of this or seeing how far I can work the corkscrew into my eye-socket before I pass out?

    30. Leon — on 15th January, 2007 at 7:50 pm  

      Oh boy… Shilpa is sooo freaking embarassing….

      That’s one way of describing her…

    31. Vikrant — on 15th January, 2007 at 7:55 pm  

      I have lil’ love for Shilpa, given her mafiosi links. But heck why the fuck do these ‘Bollywood’ stars need to fawn over Hollywood and West in general! First it was Aishwarya Rai, then Mallika Sherawat (who blew it up completely) and now Shilpa… Why in the world did she have to move out of Bombay to UK… to get lip from council estate trash. These serville attitudes displayed towards anything white by Indians is getting a touch embarrasing…

    32. Kismet Hardy — on 15th January, 2007 at 7:57 pm  

      Why is she embarrassing? Because she talks a bit bud bud? Makes you cringe a bit does it?

      The fact that she’s the only real celebrity there (the whole works: mobbed in the street, chased by photographers, yes men waiting on her hand in foot and totally out of touch with the real world) means she’s actually the only genuine person in there

      She really is that spoilt. She really is up there with her head in the clouds.

      Stop cringing. She doesn’t represent you

      But the fact that she can still be branded a Paki, an insult to us not to an Indian who’d be as bewildered as an Australian being called a Yank, now that’s worth letting your goat be got at

    33. Kismet Hardy — on 15th January, 2007 at 7:59 pm  

      Don, stop trying to out me as a clued-up pig fucker you monkfish. Sunny added that link

    34. Leon — on 15th January, 2007 at 7:59 pm  

      The fact that she’s the only real celebrity there means she’s actually the only genuine person in there

      Er that makes no sense.

    35. Kismet Hardy — on 15th January, 2007 at 8:00 pm  

      It does. She’s not pretending to be a spoilt princess. She genuinely is

    36. Vikrant — on 15th January, 2007 at 8:04 pm  

      But the fact that she can still be branded a Paki, an insult to us not to an Indian who’d be as bewildered as an Australian being called a Yank, now that’s worth letting your goat be got at

      Seeing that you’ve recently signed off your alleigence to Queen, i’m not surprised… But i believe 15 years of continuous inhabitation in UK makes me qualified to comment as a British Indian.

    37. Vikrant — on 15th January, 2007 at 8:09 pm  

      btw Kismet why are so irritable today… is your gf in her periods or something?

    38. neo — on 15th January, 2007 at 8:13 pm  

      Hang on, is it confirmed that Jack said “Paki bitch” ?

      If so, how? I’ve been trawling all over the net, i can’t find any confirmation.

    39. Sid Love — on 15th January, 2007 at 8:21 pm  

      I’m not embarassed to say Shilpa’s bud bud turns me on. So does Jermaine. I loved ‘Let’s Get Serious’.

    41. Leon — on 15th January, 2007 at 8:59 pm  

      @ neo 38, yeah I’m not entirely sure it’s 100% true yet either. It could be a load of crap put out by Ch4 to get us all talking about it…

    44. Neel81 — on 15th January, 2007 at 9:16 pm  

      Why on earth did she choose to go on this show ? Did she not realise it would be full of third rate celebs and nobodies ?

      I agree with the earlier comment about Bollywood stars wanting to ‘impress’ Western audiences. Who cares what the average chaff on the street here thinks…the films do fine as it is !

      Also being called a paki might mean nothing to her but ANY British-Asian would object to it strongly regardless of whether they were Pakistani or not.

      Who cares what some shit for brains scalliwag says on some daft reality show !

      Let C4 give him all the opportunity to expose himself as the dumbo that he is.

      Maybe they could set him a simple reading, writing and arithmetic test - results to be marked by some of the other (more intelligent) hosemates who can then have a good laugh at his expense !

    48. Refresh — on 15th January, 2007 at 9:33 pm  

      Can someone confirm the word ‘paki’ was used? The view in this part of the world is it was ‘Indian *****’. Not nice all the same.

      However, I have little or no time for any of them.

      What disappointed me tremendously was someone calling Jacky (Jade’s mum I believe) ‘environmentally sub-normal’. You couldn’t make it up.

      And Jade’s family being of a ‘different class’.

      The sneering snobby attitude should not go unchallenged - not here at least considering we are all so progressive.

      Come on you all, what is the matter with you? Jade is being castigated for making money out of BB? What are all the others doing there?

      Has anyone mentioned trailer trash? You might as well.

      As for Bollywood films - I’ve seen one in 30 years. It was enough. There are plenty of real Asian films to be watched. Do not part with your rupees for what has become the opium of the oppressed.

      And Shipa (or is it Shipla), I forget. No, Jermaine tells me its Sh-il-pa. Whatever it is - she did make a meal of it simply because someone struggled with her name.

      Get Jack out now, lets have him challenged. I am sure he has a story to tell too.

      Lets get the others out and get them challenged on their snobbery.

      Isn’t Jade part English part Asian?

      Leave off Jade. Jade to Win.

      By the way I don’t watch it - I have had to consult more impartial players in my house.

    49. El Cid — on 15th January, 2007 at 9:37 pm  

      refresh mate, you didn’t see jade asking whether eskimos spoke like whales!
      what’s clear though is that shilpa is bossy and doesn’t know how to cook chicken (the same goes for jermaine)
      why am i watching this? i blame you kismet

    50. The Ill Man — on 15th January, 2007 at 9:46 pm  

      Refresh, You Go Girl!! I don’t think theres anything to do but sneer at Jade and her muppet family. I’d make it a national sport. You’d leave the room after five minutes in her company too, so don’t get too precious ;D

      I’ve been guilty of watching little segments of the show and I am not proud. As for the slur, I’m happy for the cretins to hoist themselves, no need for heavy hands. Don’t worry about ‘ver kids’ Kismet, they’ll be alright in the end. If they aren’t, I think the damage is done long before they get to watching BB.

    51. Leon — on 15th January, 2007 at 9:47 pm  

      Has anyone mentioned trailer trash? You might as well.

      Jermaine came very close to saying that the other night. He said something about in the states we…and then trailed off I think.

    52. Refresh — on 15th January, 2007 at 9:51 pm  

      El Cid, it must be getting quite excitable because I can hear my tribe shouting at the TV

      I feel sorry for poor Jade, don’t you?

      “You’d leave the room after five minutes in her company too, so don’t get too precious ;D”

      Not sure I was getting precious. Would I leave the room? Eventually. But I’d probably leave sooner for some of the others.

    54. El Cid — on 15th January, 2007 at 10:02 pm  

      i feel more sorry for shilpa. she’s a spoilt little princess, but she’s being bullied, and i hate that.

      but yes i did feel a little sorry for jade and jack a minute ago, actually its anger towards BB but then i’m always angry… i don’t think being thick is something to be exalted.. we have a duty to shed light where there is darkness and if jack, however much of a cunt he may be, doesn’t know what “embryo” is then the man with the voice behind BB should explain it to him clearly, assuming he can. It wouldn’t have been patronising. after all, jack did ask “what is an embryo”? so why not tell him?

      anyway, that’s what my wife was shouting over to me as i ploughed through my kafka novel in the library wing

      I am with you on that. Bullying is bullying.

      BB is exploitation, not as bad as Jerry Springer and the Kyle twit, Tricia or the depressing Feltz.

      However these characters are there to be exploited and to exploit. Note how the Shilpa story becomes headline stuff in the Times of India. Note how most of it is spun to show how Shilpa is bearing up against all odds and note also the very conciliatory tone from her publicist. He’s earning his money. Knowing as much as I can about her home audience - she will go home a heroine or a victim. And they do love their victims.

      As for Shilpa, what was so awful about being called a princess? I was more annoyed with Jackiy for showing her so much deference.

      If anyone else had called her princess she would have delighted in it. But considering the pecking order that was rapidly established - Jackiy could have done no right.

      Anyway, for the participants, they can’t lose. Any publicity is good publicity.

      For me it brings them down to size. I only wish it did for everyone else.

      I haven’t read the comments because the less I know about BB the better I feel. So if someone’s pre-empted me give me a good slapping. If I’m honest I’ve not watched the clip either so probably deserve a good slapping anyway for commenting on what I know nothing about. Still, sometimes slapping can be fun though so fuck it:

      They film these people 24 hours a day, yes? So as they broadcast only a small part of that this is using racism as sensationalism, to get more viewers and thereby more revenue.

      To me this, while arguably not even racist being profit based, is the worst kind of racism there is. It brings to minds plantations in the southern US where politicians who can’t all have been racist nevertheless backed the system purely for personal enrichment often covered with a veneer of religious hypocrisy. Ah hate that bollocks.

      But what can you do? It hardly qualifies as incitement to hatred or violence, so in law nothing. That’s probably a good thing anyway otherwise we’d all go through life in a PC panic. It seems what C4 does understand very well is commerce, so what’s needed is some sort of organised boycott to hit the buggers right in the advertising department. Don’t ask me how - to the best of my knowledge nobody’s ever tried to boycott a TV station before.

      I am afraid it does not show that at all. No one can confirm that is what was said. But even if it was said, why malign working class neighbourhoods? What is the link?

      I am more inclined to organise against those that think Jackiy was ‘environmentally sub-normal’. That was an absolute disgrace. Did anyone jump up in her defence?

    64. Bert Preast — on 15th January, 2007 at 11:09 pm  

      I really, really hate to prop up the stereotype - but while “paki” might raise an eyebrow at a middle class dining table, it’s still very much de rigeur in t’workhouse.

      Not sure that “indi” or “bangi” would be a massive improvement, either.

      “It brings to minds plantations in the southern US where politicians who can’t all have been racist nevertheless backed the system purely for personal enrichment often covered with a veneer of religious hypocrisy.”

      The concepts behind racism were actually used to justify profit - in the face of teachings of the Bible.

      Don’t wish it to diverge much further - as the BB discussion is much more fun.

      Disgusting behaviour all round both the racism and undisguised class snobbery. I do feel sorry for Jade, one only has to look at her mother to see why.

      ‘environmentally sub-normal’, ‘different class’ and ‘paki bitch’. If only big Brother would drag these half wits to the diary room, replay the clips and ask them to explain themselves or if they realise what utter stenchers they’re coming across as.

      It appears to me that jack is using his girlfriend to launch an attack on that Indian girl. Reading up on the CH4 website it appears that the next day jade informed 2 of the girls of her dream where the Indian girl was victimizing her.

      Well, it could potentially qualify as an offence under the Public Order Act, section 4 (intentionally causing fear or provocation of violence through threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour) or section 5 (causing harassment, alarm or distress through threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or disorderly conduct).

    79. Bert Preast — on 16th January, 2007 at 12:20 am  

      To me that’s tearing the arse out of it. He (possibly) called her Paki but I’m assuming she’s Indian? So while she may be offended innacurate racial abuse can hardly be considered a crime, ginge. It’s a dangerous road to go down.

      Much safer is the “C4 is sensationalising racism and needs to be taught that it hurts their ad revenues”. I have no problem with them airing edgy documentaries and so on, as I reckon people who watch documentaries are in the majority critical enough. The same does not hold true for much of the reality show viewers, I fear.

      I mean, just look who started the thread?

    80. Sid Love — on 16th January, 2007 at 12:24 am

      Bert, the highlights show is just that, highlights. Most of the day is boring as hell. They cram in any incidents in the highlights show. If they kept that out, thats probably the biggest incidents of the series. Ch4 would be accused of racism themselves in trying to protect Jack.

      I disagree. They deliberately used a racist comment to create controversy and thereby revenue. And don’t we all fall for it, just? And Jack wouldn’t be by a long shot the only man to call someone a Paki, I can’t see how C4 would get into trouble for a cover up. More likely whoever tried the “expose” would end up looking a fool.

    87. Dhillon — on 16th January, 2007 at 12:46 am  

      In isolation, calling someone a “paki bitch” is abhorrent. Couple that with the racist undertone being exhibited by 4 of the remaining houseguests and you have big problems for big brother. Ofcom have more than 200 registered complaints, and I suggest that anyone who detests racist bullying in any form add to that number.

      Jack wouldn’t be by a long shot the only man to call someone a Paki
      I’m sure you know saying something with your mates down the local pub is a bit different to saying it on a programme being broadcast to millions of people (ever heard of Ofcom?). And the thousands that were watching the LIVE version (although that has a delay so it was probably bleeped out).

      Actually, it was also bleeped out the highlights show too. But everyone seem to have managed to work it out anyway with their special bleep-proof ears :p

    93. Nyrone — on 16th January, 2007 at 1:10 am  

      I really wish that Shilpa could take a look at the house from an objective perspective at this moment.

      Jackiey (frankenstein-mum) called a dilemma a ‘di-mella’ and didn’t understand what it meant. Jack didn’t know what an embryo was and came on Jade’s leg in the middle of the night before turning over and going to sleep. Jade is a 2-bit celeb who has about 1 dying brain cell in her vacant head, Jo is a clueless/jobless alcholic who we can all see 20 years from now playing the daily Bingo while smashed and Danielle is a brainless leeching-muppet who looks to Jade to make all her decisions for her.

      Hardly the cream of the British crop then.
      These council-estate no-class ugly ungrateful gutter-trash witches have seemingly escaped from some mental hospital-cave and are intent on starting a circus-style fight with Shipla for reasons such as…’she is cooking the chicken a little less than they would have, being fake, being different, crying when upset, following the BB rules and actually voting for Carole or Cleo to be nominated and in Jackiey’s case…offering her a glass of water!!

      So far, It’s pure school-playground stuff, but it sadly gives us a rather telling insight into the cultural differences and the ghettoized mentality that the 4 witches dwell dwell from. There are rascist over-tones in almost every nuance and comment that the witches strike up, you can see the jealousy and insecurity written all over their faces…’how dare this woman from India come over to my yard, out-class me in every department and have a better vocabulary than me when it’s not even her first language?’

      I only tuned into see what Jermaine Jackson was like in person, but have remained watching for once to see the class-politics involved and the blatant ostracizization of the one dignified foreign woman in the house. It’s really sad, and yet hardly suprising at all. We have all been privy to the acceptable face of bullying and rascism while watching this, it’s crystal clear. The real question for me, is does this signal clear-cut-outlined cultural moral decadance here in the UK? Is it just a coincidence that the 4 international housemates are well-rounded, polite and dignified, while the 4 British ones are repulsive, aggressive and vile individuals? Is there something seriously wrong with that kind of ‘British culture’?

      I have never ever even contemplated ‘voting’ for Big Brother in my life, but there is something tempting about seeing that trailer-trash soul-less witch Danielle being booted out of the house for good.
      It’s rare to see someone so pretty and sweet on the outside and so ugly and nasty on the inside.

      Dhillon, I am all for challenging racist behaviour. However care should be taken since I do not believe the word ‘paki’ was used.

      Challenge the rest of course.

      Its also worth isolating malicious gossip from racist remarks.

      Neo, I read the BBC link and part of me found Carol Malone hypocritical as a conciliatory voice given that she (I believe it was she) called Jackiy ‘environmentally sub-normal’. The other part of me welcomed her observation that Shapila is strong enough to deal with the petty stuff.

      Goodness, from what Clairwil’s pointed out its quite distressing to see it sink so low.

      Calling Indian food unhygienic is a major step backwards, given it was the the Indian restaurant that did the most to bring people together. Or should it really be the Bangladeshi restaurant?

      Jack said I hate her. I saw it live, not on You Tube. I can’t believe I just admitted to that.

      But paki comment aside, what’s happenning is racism and bullying

      Hate her by all means, but as a person, not because of her race

      In a sense I think you’ve missed a trick here; the bullying and nasty toned gossip regarding Shilpa exposes a lot about certain elements of the WWC. The class politics at play (from Shilpa, Jermaine etc) toward Jade etc is also interesting. These points should be the core of this debate.

      i am foreign student in england. i don’t know why people surprised about things on big brother. it was happened everyday.
      This is England of english.

      You think it’s fair to tar us all with the same brush?

    118. Col.Mustafa — on 16th January, 2007 at 2:02 pm  

      We shouldn’t really care to be honest.
      Its just some trashy show where human beings sit in a house for a number of days while people watch them with great enthusiasm for some some strange reason.

      They might as well be in a zoo, while we point and laugh at them and discuss them, have shows dedicated to analysing thier every word, even the ones they don’t want you hearing.

      Leave them be, they are in a zoo now; when they are released back into thier territory they will be fine again.

      Nyrone, Shahbaz didn’t get bullied because he was Asian or gay

      He got bullied because he was a 24-carat dicksplash

      Jagdeep, Helen Mirren. Mmmm hubba hubba mam-ma mam-ma

      Its not a trashy show. Its a complete microcosm of what happens in “real” life. Arabella Weir’s comment on CBB t’other day in the Saturday Indy was spot on but I don’t have it at hand.

    121. Col.Mustafa — on 16th January, 2007 at 2:10 pm  

      Yes but i live in my real life; i don’t need to watch people living out a real life in a box.

      And to be honest its just the bitchiness and arguments that us human beings are interested in.
      Even this little incident of an under the breath racist slur.
      It makes good tv for those that wish to watch such trash.

    122. Sid Love — on 16th January, 2007 at 2:13 pm  

      No its a social experiment.
      Good TV was the Dispatches show on what goes on in some mosques.

      BB/C4 are too media savvy, I think they’re trying to manufacture and play up controversy for ratings, given that the show’s been pretty lacklustre compared to previous years.

      BTW, I’m not big on bollywood, so I don’t know whether plastic surgery is that popular, but has Shilpa had any done? Her face looks a bit Michael Jackson-ish — ironic given Jermaine’s presence.

      I wonder how many of them really have a clue…

    126. Col.Mustafa — on 16th January, 2007 at 2:23 pm  

      A social experiment hunting contestants down that will specifically get good ratings.
      And we can’t seem to get enough of this social experiment, its on twice a yr.

      I understand it depends on the person watching the programme, and what they take from it.

      But we shouldn’t give shit like this too much attention.
      The guy calling shilpa a paki is clearly someone i would expect to say such a thing when faced in a situation like that.
      Its not a surprise to me, nor do i care; infact Shilpaji is gonna get paid a hell of alot of dough for sitting around a house and being called a paki not to her face but basically behind her back.

      Ive been called a paki for a lot less, and it still didn’t bother me.
      People take shit way too seriously these days.

      “The cunts at channel 4 are even allowing racism on their forums!”

      Its not easy to moderate a forum. You should check out how much racism gets through the net on the Barficulture forum. “gora this, gora that, jew this”.

      Forum posters are a funny bunch. I’ve seen such offensive threads on barfi, where hundreds of ppl have posted, yet not one person has informed a moderator. And then they complain that the moderators let the thread stay for that long :|

    128. neo — on 16th January, 2007 at 2:52 pm  

      The second word is bitch. Who says cunt bitch?

      The type of person who seems to call women “wankers”, never heard of the word embryo, and instead of “born”, uses the word “invented”.

      ie to jade, jack said: “Your mum is twice better than you cos she invented you”.

      LOL

      paki bitch is not wrong, its the same as saying brit bitch, brit being an abbreviation of british paki being an abbreviation of pakistani, its not nice but its not racist, excuse my spelling please

    130. Sharon — on 17th January, 2007 at 1:25 pm  

      I hear that Channel 4 are removing any references to Jack calling Shilpa a “Paki” from the digital spy forums.

      It’s also interesting to see that the above refernced footage of this incident has been removed from youtube……

      Found another though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ5NbUBavB4

      To you that think that ” Paki Bitch ” isn’t rasist as shilpa is a paki. then pay attention, SHE ISNT A PAKI, just coz she is brown skinned doesnt meen shes a paki, shes indian.

      English peeps are white and germans are white but theres a big fuckin difference between them.

      same with indians and pakis.

      Its racist coz shes been called a paki just coz she is brown/asian/woteva.

      Sharon - I’ve just followed your link and watched all the associated links, which I must say are inconclusive, but how on earth can this be considered entertainment?

      Trackback:

      “…while contributor Kismet Hardy supports the complainants. Either way, if you want a debate on the matter, there it is. Myself, I’m assuming we all agree that “she should fuck off back home, she can’t even speak English” is a racist comment, and this is a rant.”

    135. Sajini — on 18th January, 2007 at 6:47 pm  

      The ‘c-word’ wouldn’t have been bleeped after 10pm. Racist abuse would be.

      Release the master tapes, dammnit!

      i think this is not racism….totally burned out ofjealousy…ofcourse…she is brilliant..and as the whole world pronounces…she is nt a hot bollywood star..but she was popular once upon a time..whatever bullshit big brother may be…indians are generous.. curtosic and intelligents..(many foreiners wont agree to this) i think she should walk off from the fucking place..being called a paki and if they called her dog cant she call them pig..ofcourse they eat pig(i dont want to be so rude)but this is fact…shilpa is coward..better sitting there and spoiling indias name…better she quit and prove our countrys real intelligence and soft nature and we are not inferior anymore..mind the world…again sorry to be rude…
