Big Brother in another racism row

Posted on: July 10, 2009

Reality television show ‘Big Brother’ is in hot water once again, as watchdog Ofcom has received almost 300 complaints that Marcus Akin racially bullied Indian contender Sree Dasari.

Ofcom has said that it would be looking into viewers’ concerns about the 35-year-old window fitter imitating former housemate Sree’s Indian accent.

The complaints were mostly about a row between Marcus and Sree, in which Akin, who threatened 25-year-old Sree, received a telling off from Big Brother and a formal warning.

Viewers also complained about a separate incident earlier in the day, when Marcus mimicked Sree’s accent while completing the shopping list.

“Big Brother intervened and took immediate and appropriate action relating to the argument between Sree and Marcus,” the Sun quoted a spokesman for the show as saying.

“Marcus received a formal warning following his use of threatening language during his argument with Sree.

“Threatening language and behaviour is not acceptable in the Big Brother house.

“Big Brother monitors the welfare, language and behaviour of housemates at all times and will continue to monitor this situation,” he added.
