“Big Brother” 15 has seen its share of scandal this summer. Aaryn Gries, GinaMarie Zimmerman, and Spencer Clawson have outraged fans with their racist and homophobic remarks made during “Big Brother” live feeds that are aired online. When Aaryn was evicted from the “Big Brother” house Thursday night, host Julie Chen directly asked Aaryn why she would say the things she did.
In case you forgot what Aaryn said earlier this season, she said this in reference to African-American houseguest, Candice Stewart:
“Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see the b-tch.”
In reference to Asian houseguest, Helen Kim:
“Shut up, go make some rice.”
This is what was said about Andy Herren, a gay player in “Big Brother”:
“Nobody is going to vote for whoever that queer puts up.”
Visibly shocked at being called out on her actions, all Aaryn could do was claim in Texas people joke a lot about things they really don’t mean.
“Being Southern, it is a stereotype and I have said some things that have been taken completely out of context and wrong,” Aaryn said after her eviction Thursday night. “I do not mean to ever come off racist. That is not me and I apologize to anyone I have offended for that.”
Aaryn said she feels bad about what she said now looking back.
“I really feel bad that this is how it has been seen and how I’ve come across to people,” Aayrn continued. “I don’t want to seem like that person and I really do respect everyone in this game, although we have had some really hard times because we’re all fighting for our lives in the game.”
