why are these articles always so ****ing sexist like this isnít even relevant
I'm more concerned with the constant tedious sex talk from others there, which no doubt CH5 encourage.

..itís not really about that for me, James...itís more that two wrongs donít make a right...itís wrong to put someone in the house whose tweet history contents are that of hate speech, which essentially her tweets are...but itís also wrong to not do basic search checks which would only take moments ...and those checks then meaning a housemate doesnít become a housemate in the first place...but BB didnít do that...they allowed the tweets to be made public almost immediately after launch ...and then ejected Ellis, so basically threw her to the public wolves...and that for me far reaches anything she has said, which it shouldnít...?...they decided to make her a housemate so they have taken on a duty of care for her which they seem to be completely shirking and dismissing...especially as she is a member of the public and not of any celebrity or wiki status ....anything with Tila was a part of her, a public knowledge part of her as you say...all on wiki so down to the public and the fans to become aware of these public things..but not so with Ellis in the same vein at all...(...although obviously tweets are public..)...so why dont BB make themselves aware of such basic things which they feel will decide whether they then put someone in the house or not...social media can be a huge Ďhate gameí and I feel they have a responsibility to not expose someone to that game that they have made a decision to put into the house....because of their lack of any research...their wrong is far greater than hers I feel in its potential impact on her life...maybe an unpopular thing but Iím feeling they deserve to have been axed...

I am on the side of MacDonalds here.

If they now knowingly employ someone with racist tendencies, especially after her sisters endorsement that it is true, they will alienate a large part of the community who may use their outlets.

It could be a franchise and affect the jobs of others should a boycott happen because of it.

It wasn't their fault, she is only one employee who has sent out a message they don't support which could bring their name into disrepute now they are aware of it.

I think people need to remember this is glasgow. The rangers/celtic sectarianism is very real so the dynamics are completely different to other cities. So what may seem unacceptable is just not in Glasgow

Glasgow has a significant proportion of Pakistani residents, the majority of whom have been here for generations now, you couldn't find a more integrated group anywhere in the UK. Much loved and appreciated by the majority of Glaswegians. They really couldn't give a toss what some wee stupid girl says.
