Tila Tequila apologizes
Published: August 31, 2015
Tila Tequila apologizes, She was abruptly evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother 2015 house just hours after entering it on Thursday when Channel 5 discovered she’d made pro-Nazi comments in the past.
However, the shamed glamour model is said to be negotiating a return to the reality series.
TMZ reports Tila, 33, is in talks with producers regarding the possibility of her re-entering the house which will give her a second chance at battling it out with her fellow famous housemates for the prize money.
The mother-of-one is also said to have delivered the show an ultimatum – she’s reportedly threatening to sue producers if they don’t allow her to return in order to claim her agreed £100,000 fee, according to the news site.
She has since apologised for her ‘irresponsible, reckless, and selfish actions’ in a statement released shortly after her premature departure on Friday.
However, she is said to believe that bosses planned the shock exit in a bid to boost ratings and her rep added to TMZ that a thorough background check – which they confirmed was carried out – would’ve uncovered the controversial comments as they are ‘readily searchable’.
When approached by MailOnline for clarification, Channel 5 returned ‘no comment’.
Tila has begged for forgiveness and a second chance after a photoshopped picture of her posing in front of Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz and comments in which she likened Adolf Hitler to a ‘special and sweet kid’ in 2013 came to light.
Speaking to The Sun On Sunday’s Gary O’Shea, she explained: ‘I was doing a lot of drugs and suffering from severe depression. I wasn’t well in the head.’
The model added that she is desperate to return to the CBB house in a bid to mend her past wrongs, and believes she could even win.
She adds: ‘I am healed now and I want to redeem my past. I want to win Celebrity Big Brother.’
Her plea reiterates a statement she released in the aftermath of her shock eviction in which she blamed her troubled past for her outrageous social media posts – and told fans: ‘I am 100 percent not a Nazi.’
She tweeted on Friday: ‘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.
‘During that time I had been suffering from severe depression, and drug addiction for many years prior to that. I also attempted to commit suicide in 2012, and overdosed on prescription pills. I wanted to die. I felt worthless, and unloved as that pain continued to grow causing me to further spiral out of control.
‘Losing touch of myself, and reality. It was absolutely the lowest point I had ever reached in my life, and today I am truly sorry to everyone that I may have hurt along my self-destructive path. I have made many mistakes that I am definitely not proud about, but I am only a flawed human who is trying my best to be a better person than I was in the past.
‘I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible, reckless, and selfish actions and I hope that everyone can forgive me for the pain that I may have caused. I want to be a good role model for my daughter because I don’t want her to go through what I have had to endure.
‘I hope that Celebrity Big Brother will give me a second chance.’
Explaining the decision to remove her from the line-up, a Channel 5 spokesman said: ‘Unfortunately, Channel 5 and Endemol did not know about the views and attitudes Tila had expressed in social media postings prior to her involvement in Celebrity Big Brother.
‘When they were brought to our attention, she was called to the Diary Room for a discussion with producers and was subsequently removed from the house.
‘The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the programme was untenable.’
Producers called the MTV star to the Diary Room and asked her to leave after Hitler was discussed in the house.
Tila sparked outrage in December 2013 when she photoshopped a picture of herself standing in front of Auschwitz in a SS uniform cap and red swastika armband.
Her Facebook profile has been temporarily suspended at least eight times by the social network for a series of offensive posts.
The Campaign against Anti-Semitism launched an online petition calling for Tila to be removed from the Channel 5 show and has attracted 280 signatures.
Jonathan Sacerdoti, direction of communications at the campaign group, said: ‘The British public has little time for attention seeking Nazi sympathisers like ‘Tila Tequila’.
‘Channel 5 and Endemol Shine UK ought to be ashamed of themselves for promoting such a deeply offensive and nasty person on prime time television.
‘Her repulsive writings on Hitler, the Holocaust and on Jewish people make her a totally unacceptable participant for this programme.
‘Channel 5 ought to remove her immediately from the programme, and apologise fully for their enormous error of judgement. She should then be given the exact amount of public attention as she deserves: none.’
Hundreds have also taken to social media to blast the decision to let Tila on the show, with many saying that she should never have passed the initial vetting process.
Tila, who first gained fame on her bisexual-themed dating show, has strongly denied that she is anti-semitic and in 2012 she said she was considering converting to Judaism.
But in a series of online postings, including a blog entitled ‘Why I sympathise with Hitler Part 1’, she described the Nazi leader as a ‘good man’ who deserved forgiveness.
She said: ‘He was not a bad person as they have painted him out to be. Not even close!!!
‘Hitler was a good man and it takes some f***ing balls for someone to say this out loud in this day and age, especially for a public figure like myself.’
She sparked outrage by saying that the Holocaust, which claimed the lives of six million Jews, was just a side effect of war.
In one post she said: ‘I am not going to sit here and say that I hate Jewish people because that is not the case nor is this about Jews.
‘Here is a man who was not a coward, stood up for his country in a desperate time of need and yet not only did he try his best to help his country and people get out of what was a time of depression, economic collapse, high unemployment.
‘He lost the war and was painted out to be a monster after his death. This is what breaks my heart.’
She has continuously presented the German dictator as a victim and even blamed his actions on being rejected from art school.
The model, whose real name is Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen, said: ‘Once upon a time in a land far away there was a special and sweet kid who had a dream to become a painter.
‘He was a brilliant artist and was ahead of his time. He had hopes, and dreams just like we all do.
‘Unfortunately, the art schools did not feel the same as he and they rejected him. Fast forward a few years later he was roughed up and bullied on top of that by the same people he once loved. His Name was Hitler.’
She then compared herself to Hitler, saying: ‘[The Jews] mocked her, rejected her and laughed at her through and through when all she ever did was show them her love.’
