Sadly, the hateful comments have not been isolated to just these two Houseguests. Many of the 16 member cast already have a long list of terrible things they've said in the house, ranging from casual use of the n-word to one contestant calling openly gay houseguest Andy a "fag" to his face. The offensive comments became so frequent in the house that producers were forced to make a rare announcement over the house PA system warning contestants not to use slurs against other housemates. CBS also issued a statement of their own saying "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."
Unfortunately, the various comments and conversations were edited out of CBS' broadcast, leading gay former Big Brother contestant Ragan Fox (a personal favorite of mine) to post an open letter to the producers, urging them to air the comments so that viewers can see the "racism, ethnic discrimination, and homophobia that these people encounter in the house."
