For all of you who didn’t know why Emily was removed from the Big Brother house early this morning, here is a transcript of the offending conversation. It’s interesting how quickly Channel 4 is reacting to try to manage the fire storm. In the light of what happened to Shilpa Shetty, I’m sure Channel 4 has learnt lessons from Celebrity Big Brother, or, after being schooled by a team of consultants, has learnt about news management. In the house, the kids knew exactly how to react to inflame the comment even more, to try to generate fame and further their own careers. Some were asking Big Brother in the diary room what their chances were of getting a deal if they were thrown out in the first week! This really is a group of women who are desperate to harvest fame. Isn’t there something more exciting out there?
This is a provisional transcript of the conversation between Emily, Charley and Nicky that led to Emily’s departure from the house. The incident will be aired as part of the Big Brother highlights show on Channel 4 at 10pm tonight (Thursday 7th June).
Emily: (referring to Charley dancing/pushing her hips forward) You pushing it out you n’igger.
Nicky: (shocked laughter) Em, I can’t believe you said that.
Charley: You are in trouble.
Emily: Don’t make a big thing out of it then. I was joking.
Charley: I know you were… but that’s some serious s’hit, sorry.
Charley: Oh my god. I’m not even saying it.
Nicky: Just don’t talk about it anymore.
Emily: I was joking
Charley: Do you know how many viewers would watch that?
Nicky: Okay, don’t make a big deal out of it.
Charley: Fancy you saying that. I can’t believe you said that.
Emily: Somebody has already used that word in this house.
Charley: No way. (Pause) Yeah, me. I’m a n’igger.
Charley: I am one. Fancy you saying it. I know maybe you see it in a rap song. Maybe you and your friends sit there saying it.
Emily: I’m friendly with plenty of black people.
Nicky: And you call them n’iggers?
Emily: Yeah and they call me n’iggers. They call me wiggers as well.
Nicky: I’m quite shocked.
Charley: I’m f’ucking in shock.
Emily: It’s not a big deal though is it?
Charley: Not for us it ain’t. F’uck me.
