BIG Brother’s Hallie has come under fire for using “inappropriate” language – days after Kerry’s homophobic slur.
The transgender contestant used an offensive slang word out of frustration with herself in last night’s episode.
In an emotional conversation with Noky and Kerry, Hallie said: “I have days where I look at myself and feel great.”
“Then I have days where I look at myself – and that’s where the transgender thing comes in…”
She then burst into tears and made the comment.
It didn’t go unnoticed by viewers, with one saying: “Best get off your high horse, mate Hallie.”
Another added: “Weird comment from a trans woman.”
The moment was shared with bosses, who are already on high alert after NHS worker Kerry’s comments were heard on the livestream.
This led to ITV launching an investigation before apologizing for her remark, which The Sun did not repeat.
A source told The Sun: “Hallie has caused controversy again with her insensitive comment.”
“This draws parallels to Kerry’s previous faux pas.”
“It was assessed as something that may require crisis management, possible repercussions and dealing with the situation on and off screen.”
Last night hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best came into the house live to deliver the eviction result but the audience was more focused on Kerry.
AJ, 35, warned the cast that they were live on ITV2 and not to swear when the audience chanted “Get Kerry out”.
Housemates were shocked and the NHS worker was reduced to tears on live TV.
As the Sun previously revealed, the crew were convinced Kerry would be up for eviction this week.
She brought Yinrun to tears by walking away mid-conversation, leaving the Chinese roommate feeling “isolated.”
Those who worked on the show believed that she would receive a “natural punishment” through the show process alone.
But when the housemates’ votes chose Zak and Henry instead, the show faltered.
Last night viewers saw Kerry’s close friend Hallie punished AGAIN for breaking the rules.
She was forced to wear a sign and a cone on her head after speaking about nominations.
