'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."

Hey Jack, were you raised by your mother or father? Which one did you live with? If you lived with both, did some guy play with you when you were a pre-teen? I'm asking because I don't believe gay is choice either, but I do believe that a persons environment dictates sexuality. guys that were raised by single moms, most of them end up gay. I mean, an insane number of 15 year old girls now are watching internet porn and having lesbian sex. It's just a fact, not opinion. When I grew up, the number 14-18 year olds having same sex relationships were far and few because they weren't exposed at an early age. Now, they openly brag about it like it was some sort of badge of honor. I don't care who disagrees. It's freaking true and you know it.

Sunshinebear: You state a very important point when you say ....'Lost in TRANSLATION...."

I do not know of any translation by man that has not been influenced by the views of the person doing the translation.

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

really, then why haven't all those teachings and studies ur doing made their way to the school systems. all you can do is twist words and blur the surface bitch. you can't rationalize it or justify it. ur just a whiny ass bitch who doesn't understand the meaning of love. like i said, this all started out as the attemtp to achieve immortality and was carried on by those who wanted to be different and relish in the spotlight. Now, we think we are "born that way." that's funny as hell. no religion involved bitch, all you are doing is trying to convince yourself. why else would u get ur panties in such a wad? And if this is "natural," then why can't adults marry kids? why can't people marry animals? it's all in the same boat. it is taboo now, but one day, some little **** with an "agenda" is going to thrust it into maintstream thinking and a following will ensue trying to legalize it and get it thought of as "natural." it all falls back to opinion. not science bitch. u got urs, i got mine. u want so bad for the "hate speech" to stop, don't ever say a bad word about a pedefile. That's just their way of thinking. karma can be a bitch.

Reality: I lived with both of my parents in a big family. I had a great childhood, and nothing happened to me when I was a preteen or earlier, or anytime in my life. I knew I was gay when I was about 12, but I never told anyone. My brothers and sisters grew up in the same normal environment, so I don't think environment has anything to do with sexuality whatsoever.

I believe there's literally millions of people in the closet, and it's always been that way. But because of the climate today where people are coming out more and more, it just seems like more people are gay today. Thankfully more people today are coming out and don't have to live a lie.

@sunshinebear- You are mistaking HUMANS WITH AMPHIBIANS. Only few species on this planet change gender, last I recall, NONE OF THEM WERE HUMAN. ANOTHER IDIOT/APOLOGIST.

This bloke is dumb full stop. This just proves that a culture that fancy itself as tolerant and progressive are still far from that.... and if you still have some doubt about how prejudice people are just read this tread with nasty comments about homosexual.

Wow, "Reality", that's a lot of false "facts" for one person to write. I love how people can't distinguish between "facts" and their "opinion". Ever think that "when you grew up" you just didn't hear about other kids having same sex relationships or that, in your day, it was more shameful and people had to hide their true nature? Gay people have been around forever. I think there is exactly the same percentage of gay people now as there ever was. People are just more comfortable being their true selves now, despite all the bigots that still exist. Being gay is as natural as being left-handed. But even though some people can force themselves to act right-handed, it's impossible to change who you are attracted to and who would want to be with someone they aren't attracted to?

Opinion based on an understanding of actual facts is one thing. An opinion rooted in ignorance and miseducation/a total lack of education is entirely another. He's fearful because he believes all/most/enough gay people are pedophiles or could become pedophiles in the 'right environment'. That's just blatant indisputable ignorance, not a valid "opinion".

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?

Danny: You said, "like i said, this all started out as the attemtp to achieve immortality and was carried on by those who wanted to be different and relish in the spotlight". Wow! Where did you get that info? Can you entertain me with a link to that info?

Why can't you wrap your head around the fact that what you're equating to homosexuality has nothing to do with... consenting adults. Are kids consenting adults? No. Are animals consenting adults? No. There's nothing wrong with 2 dudes fooling around with each other and doing whatever satisfies them if they're consenting adults. Whatever consenting adults do behind closed to doors to get off is up to them. By the way, do you notice I'm not calling you names? You should try it too.
