Tila Tequila had made past pro-Nazi remarks calling Adolf Hitler “a man of compassion” and a “special and sweet kid.” The said remarks were made on Tila’s blog post, Why I Sympathize with Hitler Part 1: True History Unveiled, published December 2013. In addition to that, she also said it’s time for the Jewish people to forgive and forget. Also, in the blog post was her picture photoshopped standing in front of Auschwitz concentration camp in a SS uniform cap and red swastika armband.
The 33-year-old reality TV star was removed from the house when U.K.-based group Campaign against Antisemitism launched an online petition calling for Tila to be removed from the Channel 5 show. This petition received 280 signatures.
When the producers found out about the said blog post, she was called in the Diary Room and was asked to leave immediately.
It has also been reported that Tila Tequila will not get her payout on the show amounting to £113,000.
According to Channel 5 and Endemol, they were not aware of the views and attitude Tila had before Celebrity Big Brother.
Tila Tequila then took to Facebook to apologized for her past actions.
Tila Tequila said she is deeply sorry for her irresponsible, reckless and selfish actions and she hopes that everyone can forgive her for the pain that she may have caused.
“Back in 2013, I made a statement about Hitler not being a bad person and immediately realized soon after that I had made a terrible mistake that would ultimately come back to haunt me,” Tila wrote.
She also claimed she had been suffering from severe depression and drug addiction for many years before the blog post, and had even attempted suicide in 2012.
