She only entered the Celebrity Big Brother house on Thursday but last night it was revealed reality star Tila Tequila had been thrown out of the house by producers after they discovered a two-year old Facebook post of hers sympathising with Nazi leader Hitler.

The 2013 post included a photo-shopped image of her in an SS uniform hat and swastika armband against a backdrop of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The post read: ‘Hitler was a good man and it takes some f*****g balls for someone to say this out loud…'

She added: ‘Here is a man who is not a coward, stood up for his country in a desperate time of need.’

In a statement released following her eviction, Tila begged for forgiveness, saying she was ‘truly sorry’ to anyone she’d hurt and she stated ‘I am in no way, shape or form a racist nor anti-Semitic.’

A spokesman for Channel 5 said: ‘Unfortunately, Channel 5 and Endemol did not know about the views and attitudes Tila had expressed in social media postings prior to her involvement in Celebrity Big Brother.

‘When they were brought to our attention, she was called to the Diary Room for a discussion with producers and was subsequently removed from the house.

‘The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the programme was untenable.’
