'Big Brother 16' Hasn't Even Started and There is Already a Racist Homophobe Controversy

A few days ago we reported that Ariana Grande's gay half-brother would be appearing on Season 16 of CBS' Big Brother which premieres on Wednesday, and now it has been revealed that one of Grande's housemates is an alleged homophobe and racist.

CalebReynoldsCaleb Reynolds, a former prison guard in Iraq and professional hunter posted several unfortunate comments on his Instagram account, "insain_physique." He seems mostly to harbor very ill feelings toward President Obama.

Online Big Brother reports:

On Caleb’s Instagram account “insain_physique” about 20 months ago he made some extremely disturbing comments. When these comments surfaced whoever is managing his account deleted his account in an attempt to destroy the evidence. His Instagram profile read “Caleb Reynolds 100% natural, Personal Trainer, fitness is my passion, GOD is my strength, heaven is my goal.”

One of Reynolds' comments read:

“You believe in murder? You agree with fags? I guess so but I don’t agree with murdering A innocent baby which he clearly doesn’t mind. Nothin has changed in these last four years. You know it. Your just a democrat that wants that Muslim monkey in office. I’m done with you, your dismissed…

Also if you could see straight and wasn’t color blind the map if the US is completely red, thank god he only gets 4 more years. You and the other democrats will wish you never voted for him soon. Good job.”

Will his bigoted remarks receive some airtime, or will he keep them to himself (unlike last season's contestants)? Time will tell.

NYT: Rep. Aaron Schock, Who 'Has Said That He is Not Gay' Has a Popular Shirtless Instagram Account

Surfing_schock

The New York Times profiles Aaron Schock, the Republican congressman who enjoys showing off his abs, and his "popular Instagram persona" in a piece that folks are noticing feels coded.

Writes Jeremy Peters in the NYT:

The photos of him shirtless have garnered the most attention. Never shy about peeling off his clothes, as he did for Men’s Health a few years back, Mr. Schock has posted shots of himself surfing in Hawaii and sliding down a sand dune on a wooden plank and splashing into the water.

“My congressman is like a thousand years old and never does stuff like this,” one admirer wrote.

“Ride it, baby,” a man from New York wrote. Another man commented, “Rawr!” Someone with an anonymous profile wrote, “URGH marry me you fiscally conservative stud you.” (Mr. Schock has said that he is not gay.)

The internet, of course, would say otherwise. And Schock gets touchy about that Instagram account when the gay rumors surface.

And, one person has noted, they have been BLOCKED by Schock from viewing Schock's Instagram account after their username appeared in a screenshot posted by the NYT for this article.

As we noted back in January, rumors that Congressman Schock is gay are not new, and the reason that they continue is purely because of his positions on issues such as marriage equality, and that being an out gay man would also make him a very public hypocrite.

Not only is Schock opposed to same-sex marriage, he supports a federal marriage amendment, opposed repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', opposes the repeal of DOMA and voted against adding sexual orientation to federal hate crimes statutes.

This week, Republican congressman Aaron Schock posted a photo of himself surfing the Hawaiian waves to his Instagram account along with this message:

Waikīkī Beach - Enjoying the Aloha spirit thanks to @tulsigabbard hospitality and Surfing Coach Nish for getting me up. Shout out to @oahusurfshots for the pics. #icouldlivehere

He gets extra points for using a filter that gives the photo a real 1970s Hawaii Five-O look.
