Omarosa Compared Her Six-Figure White House Job To Slavery
Some people just don't know when to stop! Reality TV veteran and White House firee Omarosa Manigault Newman was recently evicted from the 'Celebrity Big Brother' House. Already on extremely bad terms with a lot of the black community, the fame-addicted realty star decided to make matters worse.

On Sunday's episode of the CBS show, Omarosa made a wholly inappropriate comparison between slavery and her time at the White House. She claimed that her being fired was akin to being 'freed from a plantation'. Suffice it to say, people were not at all impressed with the insensitive comparison.
Omarosa says leaving the White House was like getting “freed off of a plantation.” Excuse me, but wasn’t she the main one telling the rest of us to “bow down” to Massa Trump? pic.twitter.com/g1tY5y93TI— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) February 26, 2018
Omarosa made $179,700 a year of taxpayer money to work at the WH https://t.co/loVcPg0d4U— Astead (@AsteadWesley) February 25, 2018
She made the incredible claim despite the fact that she was free to leave and was paid a six-figure sum to work there, a point which many people did not miss.
Omarosa compared her White House experience to working on a Plantation... says she’s ‘been emancipated’... I’m like, yeah but, you CHOSE to work there... Plus, it don’t matter if you get the slave outta the Plantation when you can’t get the Plantation outta the slave...— Cyrus McQueen (@CyrusMMcQueen) February 25, 2018
Full stop, Omarosa. It's not leaving the plantation if you entered into that indentured servitude willingly. pic.twitter.com/yiVBm5x61c— Mrs. Know Nonsense (@MrsKnowNonsense) February 26, 2018
Not one to miss an opportunity for further self-promotion, Omarosa used her Celebrity Big Brother eviction speech to promote her supposed tell-all book about her time at the Trump White House.
But of course, she won't be off our screens alone, and has booked an appearance on the late show this week.
