*British reality TV star Jemma Lucy has defended using the N-word while singing along to a rap song.
Citing the fact that her daughter is mixed race, the “Ex On The Beach” star, 31, reportedly came under fire from her followers who accused her of being a racist.
According to the Daily Mail, Jemma responded to the backlash with a video in which she noted that it was ‘not her fault’ the song contains the racial slur, before referencing her black friends and biracial child.
“So the moral of the story is, it’s not my fault when the rappers use the N word in songs.
“I’m just singing along to the songs because I really like the songs.
“And I like – well I’m not gonna say the word – but I have friends who are that … My daughter is a quarter … so yeah, f**k you!”

Soooo… Jemma Lucy can’t activate her only two brain cells to work out why she shouldn’t say the N word in songs. Yet, manages to sensor herself when she refers to her 1/4 black child as a “quarter Nigger”…
Right… why does 1+1 = Y?
I. Am. EXHAUSTED.

Jemma also shared a screengrab of a conversation she had with a follower who told her, “Stop saying n**** in your vids it’s embarrassing and disgusting just because it’s a song doesn’t give you the justification to say it. Do your research.”
Jemma responded: “Sorry hun didn’t realise it was my fault rappers say n***a f**k off borin packet of s**to”
“The Celebrity Big Brother” contestant went on to state “U know me. I ain’t no racist. Just like the ghetto music! [sic]”
That didn’t stop her from being condemn on Twitter for using the word.
“I have no words for Jemma Lucy, honestly the casual racism and the utter ignorance is astounding!!!,” one Twitter user wrote.
Another added, “Until you lot stop using the N word idiots like Jemma Lucy will continue to use dumb excuses to justify using the word. My other take is that black men need to stop impregnating white girls with this thought process. Jemma will defo call her kid the N word in anger.“
A third added, “Jemma Lucy and all these other wannabes are the same. They beg off the culture, bred our slang and all the rest then feel entitled to say words that aren’t for them.”
