The Celebrity Big Brother house is always an interesting place. Yeah, it's cool when it's members of the public, but where else can you see exactly what celebrities are really like when their guard is down?
When they're in there, you can't count on Photoshop. You don't have a PR team who are guiding you with what you should (or shouldn't) be saying. Everything you do and say is real, and you're being watched 24/7.
For some people, this is a great thing. Celebrities can change preconceptions regarding their public image and it can do wonders for their careers. However, sometimes they can ruin their reputation by being the complete opposite of what you'd expect them to be like.
We all remember the Jade Goody and Shilpa Shetty controversy of 2007.
Well now, ten years later, there's another racism row. This time it involves Apprentice star Karthik Nagesan and Paul Danan.
Fans are divided regarding the row, but you have to watch it to be able to form a real opinion...
As you can see, ex-Hollyoaks actor, Paul, called Karthik 'Qatar'. Yikes.
In response, Karthik asked: "Are you being racist Paul? My name is Karthik dude. Qatar is a Middle Eastern airways."
Things escalated, especially when Paul insisted he was 'joking', and then so did Karthik. Anyone else confused?
Paul screamed: "No you weren't. You brought out the racist card. Don't ever f*cking do that man. That's serious sh*t in this house."
Fans took to Twitter to share their own opinions regarding the confrontation...
Some microagression/racism going on in the house with them purposely saying Karthik's name wrong. Fuck off. It's not funny. #CBB- nessa (@nubapril) 6 August 2017
Karthik said more than once he was going to make curry on the first night in the house. Stop looking for racism where there isn't any. #CBB- Nicola Hughes (@NicolaHughes93) 6 August 2017
It's pathetic that Paul can't get Karthik's name right and it kinda does boil down to implicit racism. #CBB- Big Brother Superfan (@BB_Superfan) 5 August 2017
Okay since people actually think racism was involved, was Paul being racist saying Karthik's name wrong? #CBB- Dyl:star2:n (@HausofDylan95) 5 August 2017
Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight on Channel 5 at 9pm.
