Somebody at Channel 5 finally Googled "Tila Tequila" and probably didn't like what they found. The reality star was ejected from "Celebrity Big Brother" after just one day, when the show's producers discovered her admiration for Hitler.

"You know what, you [British] boys could never handle me," Tequila said.

A spokesperson for Channel 5 said they didn't know about the views Tila Tequila had expressed on social media in the past, which is kind of hard to believe because ... the Internet.
