It's not the first time for the reality show
The Big Brother house has been plunged into a racism controversy, as Aaryn Gries, GinaMarie Zimmerman, Spencer Clawson have all been filmed using racial, homophobic and misogynistic slurs on their 24-hour live feed – the big three, so to speak.
"I find it disgusting and horrible that people still think this way in their hearts and act like it is okay to say," season 13 winner Rachel Reilly tells PEOPLE. "Every time one of these people come on a live feed I change it because I am so disgusted." Their behaviours have lead to problems outside the house: Gries, 22, has been dropped by her modeling agency in Texas and Zimmerman, 32, has been fired from her employer East Coast Pageant, Inc. CBS addressed the controversy in a statement. "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," says the network's statement. "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."
"I stand by CBS if they do not want to air it," Reilly says. "But I am saddened by what [the houseguests] have to say about minorities. The homophobic and racist remarks are beyond bad." Big Brother U.K was amidst a racism scandal when Jade Goody called someone of Asian heritage “Poppadum”.
