CBS & 'Big Brother'


Our Racist Houseguests

7/2/2013 4:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

The combination of HGs verbalizing such vile bigotry & homophobia plus America's interaction with the game (without being shown the true character of 1/2 of the HGs) is the reason that CBS should do SOMETHING to expose their totally unacceptable behavior and PUBLICLY condemn it!

It reminds me that people who do NOTHING in the face of hatred are equally responsible as those who publicly express theirs. Don't you know this, CBS or are you just following ORDERS?

As long as the "N WORD" is "acceptable" verbage WITHIN the Black "community" it WILL CONTINUE to be "acceptable" in society in general...

This is sad... I have enjoyed watchig BB for YEARS... I KNOW there have been "scandals" off the live feeds in the past... but nothing to this extent...

TRUE CHARACTER is what you do/say when NOONE is watching (or you believe noone is watching)

They should be removed, makes no sense to keep them and allow them a chance to win. We make excuses for people because they are viewed 24/7 which should not even be a factor. Making excuses allows it to continue!!!

How can CBS fail to act when racial slurs and hate speech are being used but Paula Deen was crucified for something she said decades ago? Backwards! Just makes me question the moral compass of CBS. BTW I still love Paula!

Freedom of speech. And also if you she knew anything there are far more whites getting food stamps now a days. So I guess we'll call it cra---- insurance too.

"But they don't mind
Cause what the heck
You gotta be black to get a Welfare check
And I'm broke no joke
I ain't gotta nickel for a coke"

Look, I don't even know why people are bragging about it there is MUCH more important things in life than talking about this like really come on?? People don't understand its a game every person in that room will talk bad about that person who cares everyone in this world says ****, crap, bull****, bitch I mean come on its a game and its NOTHING CMPARED to what Paula Dean said she said way more worse things than these contestants but please don't make it worse than it seems to me it doesn't matter just remember there is way more things in life than this so just get over it and move on period

CBS can talk to those people4 about the racist remarks so we don't have to hear that everytime we look at the feeds. If I had known they had a group like this one I would not have signed up this season. This is one of the most vulgar, racist groups that I can remember. There have always been a few but this year all but a few are awful. It is enough of this mess out here without this.

It's kind of funny. TMZ may have an actual story (two days late and rather inaccurate) and yet they choose to focus on Lindsay Lohan.

Go with your money maker.
