Big Brother’s Farida has been slammed for ‘reinforcing so many stereotypes about disabled people’ over remarks she made about Kerry.

Make-up artist Farida, 50, branded Kerry, who has multiple sclerosis (MS) which affects mobility, ‘lazy’ for not participating in kitchen chores, such as chopping up, in a rant in the diary room on Thursday’s episode.

ITV viewers were outraged by Farida, who has previously clashed with the NHS manager, leaving her in floods of tears, with one raging: ‘Kerry is lazy? She’s got multiple sclerosis Farida hun.’

Another fumed: ‘Farida calling Kerry lazy is reinforcing so many stereotypes about disabled people.

‘Please remember you only see a small section of the show and that people contribute in different ways.’

‘Farida has not just called someone with multiple sclerosis, lazy,’ a third added.

According to the NHS, MS is a condition that can affect the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of potential symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance.

It’s not the first time since the ITV reboot launched that Farida was called out by fans after she asked Hallie, who is a trans woman, if the men fancied her would be considered gay.

Hallie calmly responded by explaining she is a woman, so the men wouldn’t be gay.

The scene caused some reaction on social media, with one writing: ‘Does Farida not understand Hallie is a woman, I dunno I feel these questions are a bit wild tbh.’

Others, however, pointed out that Farida seemed to mean no harm by her curiosity: ‘So much respect to Hallie for having a mature convo with Farida and not go off at someone who’s trying to learn but saying the wrong thing.’

Hallie later spoke to fellow housemate Zak about the conversation and at that moment Farida walked over.

‘I didn’t take it to offence don’t worry,’ Hallie told her.

‘I just know that people ask questions and they don’t mean offence by it. They just want to know. They just don’t know how to word it correctly.’

Hallie’s mum Samantha also shared her verdict on the moment and said she was ‘proud’ of how her daughter handled it.

‘So proud, she’s handled it so well. She’s coming out, just being herself. And it’s just lovely to see the whole world now to see and know the real Hallie that I know,’ she said on Big Brother: Late & Live.

Meanwhile, body language expert Judi James recently shared her verdict on Farida’s future with, believing she could have put herself at risk of being kicked out over a ‘school boy error.’

Big Brother continues at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
