'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."

On top of that 2 is not a large enough gene pool to explain the diversity within the pool we see today.

Dear Jack,
You wanna talk ignorance bitch, look at this. Why can't men procreate together? Nature is a being of progression, not something that stalls out. If it were natural, you could. Thus being said, nature rules this out itself. Not even animals chose the same sex over the opposite one. What does that make you bitch? Homosexuality started out as lords and generals ways of trying to achieve immortality. Now, it is everywhere and we are supposed to take it as natural. With those FACTS before you and not some damn opinion to rely on, who is the ignorant one now?

This world has gone crazy with what words and opinions we are not allowed to say. Grow up, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. If you happen to agree or disagree is your right as well. I love when people get so offended by what someone says that they think is offensive and then go on a rant about that person saying offensive things about them. Wouldn't that make you just as bad as the people you say are offensive?

GoogaThePirate: That doesn't bother me as much as Exodus 21:20-21.

NIV Version: "Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property."

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+21%3A20-21&version=NIV

People used to think slavery was ok. Now most people know they were wrong. Maybe some day in the future people posting here will realize they were homophobes back in the day.

Hey Tessiana stop forcing your dogma onto people who don't believe in whatever invisible wizard in the sky you worship. Just keep kneeling drinking that wine and putting the body of a man into your mouth every Sunday. But DON'T force anyone who doesn't believe what you believe to be subjects to your mental slavery.

Having an opinion is your right as an American. Legislating your belief onto the rest of America is UN-American and more like Iran or Germany during the Third Reich.

I'm sorry but some of you people are completely IGNORANT. "Jeff isn't homophobic?" REALLY? UM...may be you should do research or do a SURVEY. How is JEFF not homophobic? Did you not see he compared HOMOSEXUALS to PEDOPHILES WAKE UP PEOPLE! Pedophiles are NOT JUST "GAY" people' THERE ARE STRAIGHT PEOPLE/ COUPLES who molest children. IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP AMERICA/world! MY GOD! Jeff is 100% homophobic. He CONSTANTLY called people a f*g in rage in big brother season 11 because he was going to be sent home. I don't care if you don't agree with homosexuality or not. It's not the point. Dumbledore is a gay character J.K. Rowling revealed this. People should learn **** before saying "why would she even make him gay" UM why would she make him straight? Ask yourself that. Jeff's comment was also sexiest because that means gay women or women in general shouldn't be teaching. Because well DUH women like boys and he's stating gay guys teaching children is WRONG. Ding, Ding , Ding. How can people be so blind and ignorant NOT to see that?

Oh look everyone Danny is one of those fools who think Homosexuality on exists in humans. Someone should let him know that literally THOUSANDS of animal species practice homosexuality in nature.


Also homosexuals can procreate, just not with each other. Furthermore love has NOTHING to do with sex. Perhaps when you religious nuts figure that out your divorce rates will stop plummeting.

My comment on page 4 talks about that. By the way, I happen to be a scientist, and it's a fact there's plenty of animals that are homosexual. Get a clue.

Then why did God create species that are both male and female? Or even species that can change gender dependent on gender population? Not saying that it is or isn't wrong but at the same time plants animals insects and aquatic creatures have been this way for millions of years. Who is to say the human race does not have a genetic structure that says ok you are attracted to the same sex and you are attracted to the opposite? You say the bible says it is wrong but as i pointed out earlier so are a lot of other things that are accepted today as a normal part of life.

Every one thinks that child molesters are gay. They are idiotic. So Jeff would rather have his children around by dumb blondes with big knockers. His "fiance" is stupid as dirt and he rubs up right against that. I find his comments not only offensive but also completely idiotic. Judge Judy was right, "people are stupid, touch every third person and you're touching an idiot." Jeff apparently you are person number 3. Fool!

sunshinebear- I am a Christian, and in the 30 years I've been on this planet, NOT ONE PERSON AT ANY CHURCH I HAVE ATTENDED TAKES THE BIBLE LITERALLY. Man, are you really that ignorant? Holy Moses, if people took the Bible literally, we'd be in a lot worse shape than what we are now. EVERY PASTOR OF EVERY CHURCH I ATTENDED AS A YOUTH EVEN SAID THIS. You mistake a lot of good Christians for the ones that aren't even on my level, the ones that spew hate and non-sense. We aren't all like the Bush Administration. That's the sad part, I get a bad rap for what those nuts have done around the world. Eh, whatever. You, just like the "religious nuts" you speak of, are just as JUDEGEMENTAL. Only difference is, you hide behind a veil of idealogy and so-called tolerance. YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN THAT WHICH YOU PRECH AGAINST "sunshine"bear. Change your name, you don't deserve it.
