Back story: PAUL AND I LOVE BIG BROTHER. It's one of our favorite shows. When we found out BBUS was going to do a celebrity season this winter, we couldn't wait! Obviously we knew CBS wouldn't be able to find real celebrities... They would find C-List... maybe even D-List celebrities. But it was still exciting! Even bad Big Brother is GOOD Big Brother!
Celebrity BB doesn't premiere until February 7th but the cast list was released Sunday night. Unfortunately, when I saw the first name... the arguably "big" name, I was completed disappointed.
They cast Omarosa.
Now, I have never watched The Apprentice or any other show Omarosa was on. I saw her interviewed on The View and on some other shows. I don't like her. But that's okay. Watching reality television is the most fun when there are people you like and people you dislike.
But the fact the Omarosa worked for the White House... she actively helped to elect Trump and his racist, lying ass... and I repeat, WORKED IN THE WHITE HOUSE... I just don't think I can give CBS my viewership and essentially my money knowing they are giving her a platform. I want them to know this is NOT okay and I don't think it is "entertaining" to see her on my screen.
This freaking KILLS me. I really wanted to watch Celebrity BB. So I'm trying to find all these ways to make it "okay" to watch it. Omarosa doesn't work for the administration anymore... in fact she was fired and escorted out of the White House. She says she has so many things to spill and that she saw a lot of terrible things while she worked for the administration... So it sounds like she doesn't support Trump anymore. So I can watch, right? I don't know.
What do you think? Am I overreacting? I really don't want CBS to think it is okay to give her a platform and I DON'T think it's "fun" or "funny" or "entertaining" to see someone who worked for the reality TV president on a reality tv show.
Do you refuse to watch/listen to anything or shop at a certain store due to moral reasons?
I don't eat at Chick-fil-a because they donoate money to anti LGBTQ groups. I know it is within their rights to do that, but I don't want MY money going to those groups. So I won't eat there, but I will go to the bathroom there. :)
