Ellis has been ejected for posting offensive tweets when she was 15 years old.
The N word was used and something related to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Why didn't they research her before they selected her to come in the house?
That's what i can't understand surely that should be the first thing they should do before selecting anyone.

It wouldn't take too long for someone at Endemol to read through all the prospective housemates twitter feeds. I bet there will be some software that can autosearch for key offensive words that can do it in minutes.

I guess the other question is, should someone be punished for something they said 4 years ago when they were 15 years old. Surely they could have called her to the diary room to issue an apology and state that it is no longer her view. Of course she could have told them in the diary room that she stands by her remarks and that's why she was removed.

ITV is reportedly in talks to purchase the production company behind Big Brother.
And it's led to speculation that the channel could takeover Big Brother, which was axed by Channel 5 on Friday night.
Channel 5 confirmed Friday morning that it had axed Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother after seven years. The show started on the channel in 2011 after a decade on Channel 4, but won't be back after 2018.
However, ITV have now been tipped to takeover after entering talks to buy the production company that makes the show.
The Times reports that ITV has bid £3 billion for the Endemol Shine group which also makes TV favourites such as MasterChef and Peaky Blinders.
ITV previously purchased production company Talpa Media, makers of The Voice, before moving the singing contest to their channel from BBC One.
It's highly unlikely that Big Brother would air on the main channel, but could take up a spot on digital station ITVBe.
An industry insider told The Sun newspaper this weekend: "Celebrity Big Brother is a hugely popular format and a massive brand that attracts millions of absolutely dedicated and importantly, young fans. That makes it extremely valuable when it comes to advertising.
"And there is no way another channel won't snap it up and bring it back, probably as early as next year.
"Channel Five getting rid of it is a massive gamble. It's still their most popular show, so it may be a decision they live to regret."
Meanwhile, both Sky and Channel 4 have ruled out taking over the show.
Channel 4, who launched the series in 2000, took to their viewer Twitter account to post: "Hi there, there are no intentions to air #BigBrother on Channel 4 again."
And Sky tweeted: 'Good Afternoon, there are no plans for Sky One to show Big Brother I'm afraid.'
As well as ITV, MTV are said to be interested in the show alongside streaming services such as Amazon Prime and Netflix.
Alex Apati of bookies Ladbrokes said: "It's no surprise to see Channel 5 finally pull the plug on Big Brother, but the odds suggest a whole host of platforms will be queuing up to give the show a third chance of staying on the air."
As yet, there is no official word on Big Brother's future.
Production company Endemol said in a statement that Big Brother "continues to be a global phenomenon" with series in 20 countries, including the US which recently launched its first ever Celebrity season.
They added: "Whilst disappointed not to reach an agreement with Channel 5 the decision opens up a new chapter and we are excited about future possibilities for Big Brother in the UK."

Doesn't look like we will be seeing any nudity this series.
