‘Big Brother’ Contestants Caught on Camera Casually Dropping Racial Slurs
Even a casual TV viewer on Tuesday would have gleaned that a good chunk of the cast seemed pretty awful, but we can thank online viewers for now knowing the precise extent of their awfulness. (Yes, there exist people who pay $9.99/monthly to watch an uncensored online version of Big Brother. These people also buy novelty hats for $40/each. I respect them.)
Above is GinaMarie discussing welfare, which she calls “n****r insurance,” and referring to an Asian contestant as a “rice maker.” And below is Aaryn talking about Candice, who is black: “Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see the bitch,” she says.
Oh there's more! From Uproxx:
David said his sheets smelled bad because “black Candice” was laying on them.
Spencer called Andy “Kermit the Fag,” tossed around the C-word liberally, said Nazi medical experiments were beneficial, and praised Hitler’s speaking abilities.
Jeremy said of a female contestant, “I did touch her vagina today. She didn’t act like she was happy. I like to feel around see what’s she’s working with … see if it’s a nice meat wallet … I know she’s on her period.”
I think it's worth nothing that, to be on BB, you have to be narcissitic enough to want a camera trained on you 24 hours a day, and you have to be unemployed for over a month. I'm not excusing their actions but, yeah, we're not dealing with the cream of the societal crop here. Expect to hear more as the show progresses. (This all happened in one week.)
