Big Brother 16 Castmate Caleb Reynold's Anti-Gay & Anti-Muslim Slurs Exposed
Big Brother 16 has just kicked off in the U.S. Only two episodes (or one split-up "premiere" episode, technically) in so far and BB fans are already referring to it as "the summer of twists." A new competition has been added and the eviction nomination process has been changed, but it's another twist that might blow up in producers' faces the second year in a row.
House guest Caleb Reynolds (whom viewers met on Thursday night's premiere episode) wants to be known as "a metrosexual cowboy" from Kentucky, but his heavy use of anti-gay slurs and homophobic language in social media may consume his reputation.
Online Big Brother scoped out Caleb's Instagram (username: insain_physique) and found the deplorable comment thread highlighting what appears to be the reality star's xenophobia.
“You believe in murder? You agree with fags?," Caleb writes in the thread obtained by OBB. "I guess so but I don’t agree with murdering A innocent baby which he clearly doesn’t mind. Nothin has changed in these last four years. You know it. Your just a democrat that wants that Muslim monkey in office. I’m done with you, your dismissed…"
"Also if you could see straight and wasn’t color blind the map if the US is completely red, thank god he only gets 4 more years. You and the other democrats will wish you never voted for him soon. Good job.”
Caleb's Instagram account was deleted shortly before the new season of Big Brother premiered this week.
I watched both premiere episodes as well as Big Brother After Dark and the Live Feeds, and have to say that even faced with someone as out and proud as Frankie Grande, Caleb didn't flinch, seem uncomfortable or make any untoward comments. Here's hoping he's learned a thing or two since writing those harmful words. Time will tell, I guess, as Caleb, Frankie, and the 14 other houseguests are locked in the Big Brother house for 3 more months...
