Tila Tequila pulled from U.K.'s 'Celebrity Big Brother' for expressing pro-Hitler views

UPI News Service, 08/30/2015 

Tila Tequila has been cut from the U.K.'s "Celebrity Big Brother" for allegedly expressing pro-Nazi opinions.

TV Guide reported the Singapore-born model and TV personality was fired one day into the series' production.

"The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the [program] was untenable," Channel 5 said in a statement.

Tequila was roundly criticized in 2013 when she posted online a Photoshopped image of herself wearing Nazi paraphernalia, while posing in front of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

She addressed the controversy with a lengthy Twitter statement Saturday.

Insisting she is "absolutely 100% not a Nazi supporter," she explained that the photo and her past positive statements about Adolf Hitler came at a time when she was suffering from depression, was addicted to drugs and was suicidal.

She emphasized she is now healthy and trying to be a better person.

"I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible, reckless and selfish actions and I hope that everyone can forgive me for the pain I may have caused," her statement said.

This season's cast of "Celebrity Big Brother" includes Daniel Baldwin, Farrah Abraham, Janice Dickinson and Jenna Jameson.
