Video: CBS's 'Big Brother' Castmates Hurl Racist & Homophobic Insults
CBS has issued a statement in response to Internet outrage over homophobic and racist comments made by players on Big Brother season 15.
“Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on Big Brother, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”
There's still no word on whether or not CBS will air the comments during an upcoming television broadcast.
What's going on with CBS's Big Brother? We get that reality shows aren't known for always having the classiest of personas, but the first week of Live Feeds for the show are capturing many of the show's participants in all of their unedited homophobic and racist glory.
Check out a clip, which has a few of the cast mates unleashing on Asians, blacks, and "queers." Classy.
Will CBS step in? For those that are interested in the show, here's a detailed account.
