What is happening?



Henry to Matty:

I'm surprised ITV don't do a full audit. I guess they don't bother because they get the contestants to lock their accounts while they're on the show.
 


There's LOADS.

Including an Instagram story where she boasts about leaking someone else's sex tape as revenge.
 
Watching the live stream and it seems Jordan and Henry got HOT AND HEAVY in the hot tub last night.
 
Imagine telling past you that she would be both evicted and cancelled in the space of 24 hours!
It's so EFFICIENT!

It took the thickies on that reddit thread FAR TOO LONG to realise that you need to screengrab these things rather than just post the links to tweets, which she's now deleted, but as well as the stuff from 10 years ago (which I could have been a bit more forgiving of when there'd be so much evidence of her having changed) there are antisemitic ones from as recently as THIS YEAR ffs, so she's over. And to play in to popular narratives from the media she's got 'Corbyn Stan' in her name as she does this :eyes:
 
Excited to see how this is handled on tonight's Late and Live.

Trish not present, with a smug looking Chanelle? Or Trish to apologise on screen?
 
Listening to the housemates speak so fondly about Trish on the livestream last night was

:ToneNervous:
 
These tweets are totally unacceptable. For someone who presented as so passionate about social justice issues the tweets are at odds with what we loved about her. This is in no way defence of what she has said, but in my attempt to understand it I suspect there’s something mixed in here about attention-seeking, playing with the idea of what’s acceptable to say online, a crass attempt at humour, and plain immaturity. Although it’s incredibly disappointing, I think about the line in Cat’s Eye by Margaret Wood - There is never only one, of anyone - and how it applies to our perceptions of people. Shows like Big Brother work by quickly presenting the characters as one particular thing and then creating narratives where those tropes can play out. It’s incredibly confusing to see that someone we loved offline has been terrible online, but two things can be true at the same time.

Coincidently, I was looking back at a thread on Moopy from 2012 the other day and some things some of our most highly regarded posters said would have been unacceptable then and certainly not said now. We all leave a digital footprint, and I suspect each new generation will be wiser to this than the one before.
 
Imagine how smug Paul ET AL will be over this 🥴

Thinking about how we were all expecting historic hate crimes of his to surface, and instead we got Trish releasing REVENGE PORN a year ago.
 
Oh no no no. We're all fragile from the Trish revelations, I don't think I can take anything remotely sexual from those two on top of it

Trish is Cordelia.
