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.

I will be surprised if any of the offenders (I'm looking at you Spencer, Jeremy, GinaMarie, Aryan, David and Amanda!) actually have jobs or any prospects for new jobs after they get out of the house. The reality is, you can't say stuff like they have said - in such a public setting (under a microscope) and not expect severe consequences. That's the world we live in now.

Who are the sponsors of CBS Big Brother? CBS may not want to do anything about it other than provide the vehicle for racist hate language but we CAN do something about it as consumers.

Simple. Boycott the show. Let the ratings dip and the ad $$$ revenue slide and these azz pimples will be off the show quicker than Ryan Seacrest can scan a mirror!!

CBS is not all that offended. If they were really on board, they would have far more minorities than these single tokens. It is so blatant, the 1 per Rule, it is laughable if it was not so insulting. Thats why I am not watching when I saw the guests. Now I KNOW I will bypass.

It'll come back to bite 'em in the a$$--and I mean the houseguests. That's the way the show is supposed to work. They don't have to be loveable. They're partly representative of the general public; especially the young, stupid, immature portion. What are the odds ANY of them would win MVP?
Let the chips fall...

the welfare thing was funny cause its true...funny how gays speak of acceptance and equality but when you refer to the Bible and politely disagree with gay marrage and the lifestyle the gays show you what a hypocrite is all about....gays can have an opinion but straight people cant....thats a crock of chit....i think gayness is immoral and just nasty...there is a reason why God wont let em breed

That little girl from Texas is the worst out of the bunch of them, imho. Then Spencer, Gina Marie, and to a lesser degree Jeremy, & Kaitlyn.

So... Is Big Brother and/or the network going to throw them out of the house or not? I mean lets keep it straight, if we're going to punish one so severely (paula deen) lets keep it fair. Kick their ass off. I personally think Paula Deen got a raw deal, blown way out of control. (And I'm not even a fan) And most of the viewers will not see the live feed unless the subscribe to after dark, but it is what it is. Am I punished for singing along with a rap song with that language???? all this racist stuff is out of control & the only target the famous. Alex said Queen for Gods sake and look at the beating he took.
