In the past few hours, Manila Nazzaro, competitor of the ‘Big Brother Vip 6’, has ended up at the center of the controversy for having pronounced the ‘m word’ which, in various editions of the program, has cost a serious disciplinary measure. The web, in a loud voice, invokes the immediate disqualification of the former Miss Italy for a word, even if spoken to herself, which can offend someone’s sensitivity.
On the eve of the first episode of the new season, Alfonso Signorini, at ‘Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni’, had expressed the greater tolerance of his group in the face of similar situations:
This year Big Brother, to my great satisfaction and joy, has decided to adopt a slightly less “bigoted” attitude towards what is defined as “politically incorrect”. Because we all have pockets full of them. As soon as we speak we are terrified of saying: “Oh my God what I said”. As soon as we hear a word we immediately invoke body-shaming or Me Too … None of us, I think, can take it anymore. Social media are very sensitive on these issues, rightly so. Sometimes everything takes on such a surreal dimension that it is unjustified. This does not mean free all. Everything will be considered in its intention. We will be strict with those who use expressions against women and against sexual orientation … We must also understand that if a person says a bad word it is simply a fall in taste.
Will ‘Big Brother’ disqualify gieffina or adopt a softer punishment?
