Fan Frenzy Over Perceived Racist Comment

Internet forums went into meltdown on Friday night after a comment made by Mikey on the live feed while waiting for the 4th eviction to take place.

It was believed that the 33-year-old used the word 'ni**er' when reciting the children's rhyme 'Eenie, meenie, miny, mo'.

Shocked fans were up-in-arms because Emily Parr got thrown-out last year for using the word in the presence of a pal, whereas Mikey said it in the presence of Darnell, someone he doesn't like and who is technically black.

Indeed, with Maysoon nearby, the radio producer had only just mentioned Darnell, saying that he's the 'chief of conspiracies' among the group.

Confusion and outrage followed, along with speculation that the show's producers would be considering their options overnight in respect of removing Mikey from the game. Many fans called for his immediate ejection, whatever his intent.

Whatsmore, Channel 4 forum moderators deleted multiple threads from the official discussion forums as fans tried to get to the bottom of the matter. This just added to the speculation and confusion, with fans fearing a cover-up if Mikey did actually use the 'n' word.

Eventually, a clip of the alleged incident was put on the internet and fans realised that it had been a false alarm. Having reviewed the footage, Big Brother Online can confirm that Mikey used the word 'finger'.
