Racism on Big Brother Cont’d

Posted by shadmia on January 20, 2007


Shilpa Shetty has survived and Jade Goody is gone. That was the result of the audience vote on Celebrity Big Brother. It wasn’t even close. More than 80% voted to cut Jade. Both Shilpa and Jade received the most votes by their fellow roommates and it was up to the audience to decide who should go. As each roommate voted they gave their reasons for selecting who they wanted off the show. This is captured in a two-part video clip:

In an effort to ease the tensions caused by the fight between Shilpa and Jade, Indian Tourism Office (ITO) issued the following invitation in an open letter to Jade Goody:

“Dear Jade Goody. Once your current commitments are over, may we invite you to experience the healing nature of India? Being one of the world’s oldest civilisations, our land is one where the ancient and the modern culture co-exist and a multitude of religions live in harmony.

“As a beauty therapist, you may be especially interested in visiting one of the many spas where you can cleanse your stresses away, enjoy yoga in the land that invented it and experience Ayurvedic healing, which promotes positive health and natural beauty.”
