'Big Brother' Aaryn

TOOK A BLACK GUY TO PROM

... Says Mom

9/3/2013 1:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0903-aaryn-gries-big-brother-getty"Big Brother" villain Aaryn Gries CAN'T be the homophobic racist she appears to be ... because she took a black guy to her high school prom, this according to Aaryn's mom.

We're still waiting for the photographic evidence ... but Aaryn's mom reached out to the L.A. Times and insisted it's true.

There's more ... Aaryn's mom also says the reality star once dated a "Cuban American."

Still more ... Aaryn's mom says the reality star recently sponsored a Filipino child through a charity and "she has cousins of Japanese descent who she truly loves."

Despite all of that ... Aaryn's mom says, "While I love and continue to support my daughter Aaryn, words cannot describe my disappointment in some of her comments made on 'Big Brother.'"

"These inappropriate comments certainly do not represent the value system under which her father and I have raised her."

As for gays, Elizabeth says Aaryn "has never discriminated against anyone for their sexual orientation whether within our family or not. Aaryn truly loves all people equally."

Sure ... as long as they're not cooped up with her in the same house.

Aryn is bad, but the people in the house that supported what she said because "It is Good for My Game" is just as Racist as the person that says it.

How can you people complain about this girl when you are on one of the most racist sites on the net? TMZ makes fun of Mexicans and Asians, but blacks and gays are off limits. And a good majority of the commentors on this site are totally racist. TMZ does it under the cloak of humor, which is rediculous, but all of you come to this site and bitch about racism. This is a group that has turned into the bullies on the block, yet that is fine with you sheep. Go on and hate me for speaking the truth, I don't care.

Nothing like supporting/distancing oneself from a controversial reality tv star -


In the same very statement.


"While WE, her father and I ...?"


"WERE perfect parental-units?"


"Her, not so much!"


Hey Lady make up your mind!


Are you DOWN with the girl or NOT down with the girl ?!


She's a STAR now - get off of her - leave her alone!


Doesn't TMZ refer to this?


As "humble-brag"


?


SELF promotion?


Done with COMPLETE sincerity/humility?!


C'mon guys, let her have it - she's guilty !!!

I give Aaryn a lot of credit - and I saw the show not once -


Can't stand the show.


But for someone to stand OUT as much as Aaryn did -


CREATE a tornado or two!


It's unusual - cuz most reality people come and go with nary a word or thought of ANY of 'em.


Not Aaryn - she rolled the dice, came up big.


Now she's a cottage industry:


"KICK Aaryn - PROMOTE self!"


Even her Momz is gettin in on the action!

How to identify a racist:
"My best friend is black!"
and now....
"I took a black guy to prom!"
Just own it stupid bitch. You're racist and homophobic. Mom, stop defending her actions, it puts you in the same racist homophobic boat as your daughter. Instead of mounting a feeble defense, start looking into personal security for your daughter. There's a lot of people that don't like her. I didn't like her BEFORE all the comments, I can imagine others feel the same.

Aaryn can write her own ticket now - needs a manager.


ANY show will put her on in a heart-beat, SURVIVOR, etc.


She can be a judge on AMERICAN IDOL.


There's always a market for interesting, colorful people -


always -


plus she's beautiful -


Maybe that's the real problem.


TOO good-looking.

A blonde from SURVIVOR.


Became a famed morning talk show host.


By being herself -


Elizabeth Hasselbeck'll be doing radio next.


She's a natural.


Blonde's are supposed to keep their mouths shut.


Not think not talk, not be different.


Good for Aaryn - may this launch her.

in no way does this change what she said was racist. I have a black friend and she is racist to blacks, even though she is black herself and her entire family is black. If she had the audacity to say what she said, she is racist period.
