CBS Addresses Racist And Homophobic Comments In ‘Big Brother 15′ House…Barely


Big Brother 15 has been grabbing a lot of attention for all of the wrong reasons.

Multiple house guests have used racist and homophobic language in the house, leading many outside of the house to ask CBS to take action.

Yesterday, CBS released a statement.

The language has only been heard during live online streams and TVGN’s nightly “After Dark” show.  It has not been aired or discussed in any of the three Big Brother episodes which have aired on CBS this season.

It’s possible that CBS may take further action and address the hateful language directly with Big Brother house guests.  It’s also possible that they may address the comments on the live show which airs tonight.  So far, all we have from CBS is a statement issued yesterday. published the 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. 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.

Releasing a statement that only states the obvious and that the house guests will never see isn’t exactly a strong move from CBS.  There could be more to come, but the show’s history might lead us to believe otherwise.

Learn more about the language being used in the Big Brother house and the prior history of similar problems on the show.
