Celebrity Big Brother, a reality show in the UK, has come under fire after making the decision to air footage of Janice Dickinson having a seizure.

Since then, Channel 5 — the network that airs Celebrity Big Brother — has received backlash from fans who believe the scene never should’ve made it past the cutting room floor.
Viewers took to social media to express their disappointment in CBB for showing Janice’s seizure (also known as a “fit” across the pond).
