'Big Brother' Jeff -- Homophobic Shots At Dumbledore

7/13/2011 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

'Harry Potter' ignited a homophobic firestorm inside the "Big Brother' house ... after castmember Jeff Schroeder said he would never send his kid to a "fantasy camp" run by Dumbledore ... because he's gay. 071311_jeff_homophobe_still

It all went down inside the BB house last night  -- during a live feed on the Internet -- when Jeff and Kalia began talking about the fact J.K. Rowling wrote Dumbledore as a gay character.

Jeff -- shocked by the revelation -- says, "He's in a school with little kids, you can't make that guy gay!"

He added, "It isn't right to have it in a little kids book, and have the head master locked away in this magical land, be gay. That isn't the right kind of writing to do."

Kalia responded, "Why? Gay men can't work with little kids!?" ... adding, "Just because he is gay, doesn't mean there is a thing wrong with him."

This isn't the first time Jeff has been involved in a homophobic situation on the show ... back in 2009, he used a gay slur to attack a fellow housemate.

UPDATE: CBS just released the following statement -- "Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a houseguest appearing on Big Brother, either on any live feed from the house or 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."

I think he's just confused. Being gay and a child molester are COMPLETELY different. Like even if the headmaster wasnt gay that still leaves the girls/witches who are attending Hogwards. and same thing if the headmaster was a women .. then the boys would be at "risk".

Jeff's confused. Greatly..

Evil ****, it is more like Evil Danielle. Send that biotch home. Everybody vote to bring someone back into the house besides Dominic. Don't please Danielle. And Kalia proved her ignorance when she put Jeff up for eviction. She is Danielle's little puppet. Jeff is one of the best players and deserves to win. Think how boring this show will be without the veterans on there.
