Since then, Tequila has retracted that apology in words and in deeds.
She called herself "Hitila," and wrote a post called "Why I Sympathize With Hitler: Part 1," in which she called him "not a bad person as they have painted him out to be."The reemergence of that image and those declarations caused her to be kicked off the popular UK show Celebrity Big Brother in 2015 after only a few days in the Big Brother house.Tequila then issued an apology on Facebook, calling her sympathetic characterization of Hitler "a terrible mistake." She blamed her anti-Semitism on "depression" and years of "drug addiction.""I am in no way, shape or form a racist nor antisemitic and absolutely not 100% a Nazi supporter," Tequila wrote in August 2015.In a series of blog posts, Tequila defends the former Nazi leader, but she insists she's not anti-Semitic."I am not going to sit here and say that I hate Jewish people because that is not the case nor is this about Jews," she writes in one post.In 2012, she told TMZ she was "fascinated with Kabbalah" and was converting to Judaism.
She added, "I just feel like the Jewish people have such a beautiful way about them, and I can't wait to officially be Jewish! The next year, in December 2013, she posted a photoshopped image of herself on Facebook in front of Auschwitz, with a Nazi armband and SS cap on.
But as she told The Daily Beast, "I think that's why I'm also invited here because I bring a little bit more diversity to the movement." If you have opted out of news on Tila Tequila in recent years, you have missed this devolution. And to scroll through Tequila's timeline — and to look at the depressing detritus of her fall from her fame-ish heights in 2007-8, when she was the prize in MTV's reality dating series A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila — is to induce insanity.
Throughout her descent, Tequila, 35, has seemingly been fixated on Judaism.
SO DID THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE WHO SUFFERED IN EVERY SINGLE WAR THST [sic] TOOK PLACE! So please, if the rest of us can forgive and forget maybe it's time you do also!!!
" Tequila instead claims that she's exposing the truth about Hitler, noting that when she viewed him as "an atrocious monster" she was "merely brainwashed" by movies and the media.
Tila Tequila has just posted a photo of herself on Facebook in Nazi attire, including an SS uniform hat and a swastika arm band, standing in front of Auschwitz!
