Emily Parr BB8 Video – Big Brother UK 2007 | Emily Calls Charley A “Nigger”

54 sec read

Charley has just been evicted from the UK Big Brother house last Friday, so I thought this would be a good time to take a closer look at this infamous clip in which she was called a nigger by Emily.

I’ve used the word as although I understand it’s offensive nature, anyone who watched the clip or the original episode on television will be fully aware what the word is anyway.

I suppose the big question is: Is it ever right to use that word or is completely taboo?

This was one of the most shocking moments I’ve ever had the misfortune to watch on Big Brother, and I’m an avid fan. This clip shows the full exchange which occurred between Charley and Emily and the aftermath of their conversation.

Emily was eventually thrown out for her comment, which in hindsight was correct, Channel 4 really had no other option.

I do however have some sympathy for Emily, feeling she used the word in the same way she’s used to doing on the outside with her friends.

I would argue the case for her that she isn’t a racist and merely is very stupid and naive to think she could use that kind of offensive language on national TV and not be reprimanded for it.

The debate as to whether she acted racist is still ongoing, but now that Charley has finally been evicted, I hope a line can be drawn under the episode and Emily is left to her own guilt and regrets over the incident.
