This is what a racist looks like:
Sorry Jamal, she only goes for White men!
This week, Texas model Aaryn Gries was dumped by her modeling agency, Zephyr Talent of Austin, for numerous racist and homophobic comments she has made about her fellow housemates, including two African-Americans, an Asian-American and a gay man. According to many news reports, a Zephyr statement says, in part, that Gries has “revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone.”
Also this week, another player, New Yorker GinaMarie Zimmerman, was likewise dumped by her employer, East Coast Pageant Inc., for racist language (using the same N-word that felled Deen). Zimmerman’s company said, in part, “We have never known this side of GinaMarie or have ever witnessed such acts of racism in the past. We are actually thankful that this show let us see GinaMarie for who she truly is. We would never want her to be a role model to our future contestants.”
As long as they are still in the game, Gries and Zimmerman are sequestered from the outside world and apparently don’t yet know they are no longer employed.
Meanwhile, three other players are also on the hot seat, unbeknownst to them – Spencer Clawson, an Arkansas railroad conductor, who used a gay slur and praised Hitler for his speaking abilities; Texas boat shop worker Jeremy McGuire, who used vulgar misogynistic terms to refer to women in the house; and Kaitlin Barnaby, a Minnesota bartender who used the N-word in a slang reference not implicating anyone in particular.
