What the hell is going on on Big Brother? The American version from CBS, in addition to the network reality show, has a 24-hour live feed that airs on CBS.com and some pretty crazy, offensive racist crap is being said all over the place. Crap like, and thanks to Reality Blurred for these,
GinaMarie said that, because of her income level, she receives “n***** insurance”. She also said that Helen, who’s Asian, “should be kissing our ass and serving us some f-cking rice.”
Aaryn said of Andy, “No one’s gonna vote for whoever that queer puts up.” She also suggested he’d win MVP because “people love the queers.”
Aaryn said about Candice, who’s black, “be careful what you say in the dark; you might not be able to see that bitch.”
Talking about sheets that smelled bad, David said they were that way because “black Candice” was on them, and then admitted, “that was totally racist.”
Jeremy, who calls the house’s women “bitches,” said of Katilin, “I did touch her vagina today.. she didn’t act like she was happy.. I like to feel around see what’s she’s working with.. see if it’s a nice meat wallet … I know she’s on her period.”
Spencer called Andy “Kermit the f-g”; Amanda called Andy “F-ggoty Ann.”
Katilin said she likes gay people but they’re “untrustworthy in a game like this.”
Spencer referred to women as “c****.”
Such tender love and understanding going on in that house. Reality Blurred also posted an interesting comment from Ragan Fox, a former Big Brother cast member:
What’s the point of casting racial, ethnic, and sexual minorities if production’s going to edit out the racism, ethnic discrimination, and homophobia that these people encounter inside the house? If you really want to provide a groundbreaking twist, SHOW CBS VIEWERS HOW SOME STRAIGHT, WHITE PEOPLE talk about gays, Asian Americans, and African Americans.
CBS responded to all of this controversy with the incredibly meh,
Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on Big Brother, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.

Sounds like they’re not planning to get rid of any of the cast. Too bad Paula Deen didn’t work for CBS. Who do you side with — CBS or Ragan Fox? Or somewhere in between?
