Danielle will not be ejected for homophobic tweet controversy - report

12 Jun, 2014 - 5:22 PM by Sam:)
According to PinkNews.co.uk Channel 5 has confirmed that, despite calling for “poofs” to be shot on Twitter, a Big Brother contestant will not be removed from the house.


Danielle, who stated last week that she does not believe in same-sex marriage within the catholic church, made the statement on Twitter last year. She referenced a gay man as a “poof” and “freak”, suggested that he “man up”.

In one of the tweets in question she appeared to call for a gay person to be shot for using the word “lush”, saying: “Just seen a supposed guy use the word lush…. Shoot him, shoot him now How utterly cringe and vile #manup #poof.”
Channel 5 declined to comment specifically on the tweet, but said that producers would not be removing Danielle.

Danielle is facing eviction this week alongside Tamara and Jale.

I doubt a homophobe would've shared a tent with Christopher last night either.

I'm laughing at people thinking she was going to Shot a gay person

She was being sarcastic like "urge just seen someone buying them ugly jeans, I want to shot him #angry"

I agree about the gay marriage thing (holding that opinion alone doesn't make someone a homophobe), but the tweets are dodgy. I mean, "step out the closet you freak", for example.

She didn't say that. She said something along the lines of "Men who use words like lush should be shot". Of course, that's no less mean spirited. I've been defending her in the house but these tweets have definitely put me off her a little.

Maybe she's lying in the house and does hate gay people, but for now I'll put the tweets down to awful wording until we get more clarification.

It's so annoying it's a reality show with different personality's some people are going to dislike different things, imo there should be no warnings for things like "die in a hole you hoe" not like that has happened, but people should learn before they complain to Ofcom that it's a reality show

I find those tweets very offensive, to be honest. Calling gay men poofs is wrong.

And Helen should be removed for prostitution? Is that not an actual crime?

Her parents brought her up a strict catholic in Glasgow, she would have been brought up with a very negative disposition towards homosexuality. God only knows what she has said with her friends but I can guess.

Well, I think a lot of it is aimed as feminine men rather than specifically gay men. But then, with the "step out the closet" thing, clearly Danielle gets the impression that these type of men are secretly gay, so I suppose if that's the case she must feel like she's aiming the word at gay men.

It's really confusing. I like Danielle in the house so these tweets frustrate me even more than they would do ordinarily.

I mean, she could have intended no offence towards gay people in general, just aiming it at the effeminate men, but they're still not great tweets either way.

Totally agree-people -are- different from each other; it's why I rage so much about the intolerance at the women in the house versus the excuses used to justify when the men do/say/think. I think the lesson here though is that, yes, this is Your (meant in general terms) planet, but it's also everyone else's and if you expect your place in it to be respected then you should respect everyone else's place too.
