CBS & 'Big Brother'

We're OFFENDED By

Our Racist Houseguests

The honchos at CBS tell TMZ ... they were certainly OFFENDED by several racist and homophobic comments made by the current "Big Brother" houseguests ... but hey, that's live programming for ya.

The houseguests have been under fire from what appears to be the ENTIRE INTERNET over the following comments:

-- GinaMarie referred to welfare as “n**ger insurance”
-- Aaryn called gay contestant Andy a "queer."
-- Spencer referred to Andy as “Kermit the F**" ... and praised Hitler as a gifted speaker.

CBS has released a statement to TMZ ... saying, "We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive."

However, The Eye points out that 24/7 live programming can sometimes reveal some bad things about people ... saying, "At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone."

There have been rumors that Big Brother will be 86ing some of the offensive cast members -- but it certainly doesn't appear that's gonna happen.

As far as I am concerned we all need to be colorblind. Most of America is, however idiots like this spoil the whole pot. We are all equal, one is not more equal then the other however some people on all races, creeds, colors and religion tend to believe they are more special, deserve special treatment, not all just some. If we all were color blind and we can concern ourselves with the important issues and this would not be an issue.

I can't believe people still think this so called reality show isn't rigged. Diary rooms are there to feed contestants info. and tell them what to do. CBS is just as bad as the sick BB players because they let this air. Putting a stupid disclaimer before the show doesn't solve anything, it's just a CYA for the network. CBS should be ashamed and they are part of the problem not the solution.

I have been an avid fan of bb since season 2. I know the houseguests say alot of things just for the feeds and for bbad but this year has been the worst in bb history. Its bad enough about the racist comments but i find it extremely disgusting the way the remaining 3 are constantly bashing hgs that have left and are getting away with it.
