My Kitchen Rules – Surprise And Now We Have Twitter Race Row
Well surprise surprise contestants get a bad edit and then people say mean things about them on Twitter and this time it is about their race.
The Daily Telegraph is reporting that My Kitchen Rules may have pulled their twitter feed because of racist remarks being made. Not sure why MKR would pull the tweets that were being screen as they censor them anyway and it is all pretty sanitised. So tend to believe them when they say it was a technical issue.
However there have been tweets that have been racially based. Some examples as reported in the Daily Telegraph are:
”The Indian b…..s are so going” and ”pack your bags girls, back to India” were amongst the tweets aimed at the pair.
Other comments included ”they are m….s who rate themselves far too highly”, ”Jessie and Biswa your (sic) i….s” and ”watching Jessie and Biswa cook makes (me) either want to take a taxi somewhere or sing Jai Ho”.
”Jessie and Biswa are like the Collingwood of MKR. 90% of the country is against them and the few that do support them are probably r……d”, another tweeted.
Members of the Indian community also slammed the pair on social media.
”I’m embarrassed for my race, my ancestors are rolling in their graves at that horrific display of Indian culture,” one tweeted.
”Jessie & Biswa wake up the next day to find out they have been disowned by the Indian community,” another posted.
Of course the girls are getting negative comments on the social media they are getting an extremely bad edit, the contestants around the table appear to barely tolerate them and they have received the majority of screen show to ensure that viewers were whipped up into a frenzy about them.
Any Jessie and Biswa should take comfort in the fact that the night they cooked Australia wide over 3.2 million people watched them and MKR would not have had the cracker start without those two girls. Giving me their type any day over the controlled Lisa.
My Kitchen Rules – Monday to Thursday nights on SEVEN at 7.30pm.
