Big bully

19 Jan 2007 / in watching and reading
I’m glad Channel 4 and Endemol are not going to pull Celebrity Big Brother in the wake of this week’s vicious bullying by Jade Goody on Shilpa Shetty.

Big Brother is a mirror on our society. It ought to be uncomfortable viewing sometimes. Bullying, racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, ageism and all kinds of hideous discrimination still exist and we each have to ask: what am I doing about it? How do I challenge discriminatory or bullying behaviour?

It’s not often a TV programme actually opens a debate like this – a debate that really, really matters.

Jade should -rightly- be evicted tonight. She’s just ignorant and nasty.

This is a demo store for testing purposes — no orders shall be fulfilled.
