Tila Tequila Kicked Off 'Celebrity Big Brother' for Nazi Sympathizing: Report
Tila Tequila has reportedly been kicked off the current season of Celebrity Big Brother due to Nazi sympathizing.
According to TMZ, Tequila had posted a photo to her blog and Facebook page in 2013 showing her posing in a sexy getup in front of Auschwitz with a Nazi band around her arm, hat on her head and gun in her hand.
This post had been unknown to the show's producers, the U.K.'s Channel 5 told Mirror Online and when it was brought to their attention they met with her and relieved her from the show.
"The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the programme was untenable," a Channel 5 spokesman told Mirror Online.
Tequila apparently also ranted online, calling Hitler a "brilliant artist" and saying she has "the same hopes and dreams as Hitler." This was all brought to the channel's attention after the Jewish group Campaign Against Antisemitism slammed the TV show for including Tequila on its show.
TMZ is reporting that Tequila now won't receive her $175,000 payout from the show.
