Stop Shilpa Shetty being the victim of racism in the Celebrity Big Brother House, and just let her and the rest of the Pituitary retards in the house be the subject of humiliation and disdain sign now

This petition has been created because of the furore around the supposed racial discrimination Indian actress Shilpa Shetty is facing within the Celebrity Big Brother House, and the actual media-generated hysteria about this non-story.

Channel 4 have clearly created a sub-standard programme and, in desperation at their reportedly falling viewing figures, are happy to see anything being said about their programme. Racism is an easy issue to get people riled, and interested in seeing what the fuss is about. The British people's legitimate concerns about the evils of racism are being subsumed by a so-called reality tv show - although if you can show me a reality where people are kept locked within an environment 24 hours a day, for weeks on end, then i'll show you a prison.

This media frenzy, and the sad attempts of Keith Vaz MP to get involved, is a misrepresentation of how the majority of the Brits feel about this show - they don't care. Big Brother is a waste of time, it is not an experiment, it is not entertainment, it is not documentary, it is a an example of the power of the brand - Big Brother generates column inches, pictures, media comment, blogspace, discussions and nothing else. People who appear on the show are no longer under the illusion that it is an interesting experiment or, in the celeb version, for charity. The show is for their brief fame, for Channel 4, for Endemol, for the advertisers.

The public hate racism in any form - focusing on the occasional racism from Z-list celebrities instead of the violent racism of groups such as the BNP, etc is a travesty.

We, the undersigned, not only want the bullying/racism in Big Brother to stop, we want media coverage about Big Brother to stop, we want MPs to stop trying to be "relevant" by talking about Big Brother. All in all - we want Big Brother to stop.

Sincerely,
