It is believed that at least four of the participants complained about the comment allegedly made in the group's WhatsApp chat, according to The sun.

However, they are now apparently furious that the matter has not been resolved and a source revealed: & they see it as a totally fruitless investigation. Everyone thinks Lottie is off the hook. & # 39;

They insisted: & # 39; The comments are not at all correct and racist. Yet she was shot with a slap on her wrist.

& # 39; There is a general feeling among those in the show that the BBC does not understand how offended people are – or simply want it to go away.

A spokesperson for the production company Boundless of The Apprentice: & # 39; Appropriate measures are being taken and that is a matter between the production company and the person involved. & # 39;

A spokesperson for the BBC added: & # 39; Although this happened on a private messaging service after filming ended, the BBC still expects the candidates to behave correctly.

& # 39; The production company has investigated and reported back the issue, Lottie has been informed that her comments were completely unacceptable and does not doubt our opinion on this. & # 39;

The BBC told Mrs. Lion, a 19-year-old candidate in the show, that telling rival Mrs. Farhan & # 39; shut up Gandhi & # 39; was & # 39; completely unacceptable & # 39 ;.

Producers reported the comments made after filming for the program to the broadcaster as they investigated the incident.

The source of the website claimed that people might have forgiven her if she admitted the mistake and apologized for the comment.

The producers of the show told the sun that the right course was being followed and being treated between them and the person involved.

Ms. Lion said earlier that the & # 39; comment was taken out of context & # 39; but the company issued a statement on Friday condemning her comments.

MailOnline asked the BBC if further action will be taken against Mrs. Lion, who is still appearing in the pre-recorded show.

Mahatma Gandhi led the struggle for India's independence from the British Empire in 1947 and was known for its peaceful resistance.

It is after The Sun has announced that the co-participants of Mrs. Lion want her to abandon future performances and the sister show of You Fired.

In addition to the messages sent through the group chat, it is also claimed that Lottie made racist and homophobic comments during filming.

She would be Ryan-Mark Parsons the & # 39; short gay & # 39; while they mentioned Riyonn Farsad & # 39; the long gay & # 39; called.

Ms. Lions was also accused of making different comments about transgender women.

The tension reached the boiling point in the candidate house during filming, and one would have threatened to leave the show after & # 39; racist & # 39; comments from Lottie.

The show was filmed between April and June in North London and a show source told the sun last night that the participants were told to let go & # 39;

& # 39; It was not taken seriously and swept under the carpet. But Lottie's behavior was outrageous.

& # 39; She also made the homophobic comments, which were totally unnecessary. Participants complained to producers in the house and asked them to look at it. & # 39;

The source stated that producers would not leave until candidates had gone to bed and were aware of the comments made.

They added: & # 39; The racism problem is big and it will explode in the show and face of the BBC. It does not go away and people are shocked at how they were handled. & # 39;

Lottie allegedly punished the claims and said she & # 39; not true & # 39; goods. But fellow candidate Souleyman Bah claimed & # 39; of course it is true & # 39 ;.
