Aaryn Gries from season 15 of "Big Brother" has reportedly been dropped by Zephyr Talent after she was filmed making racist and homophobic comments on the reality show, TMZ reports. During the "Big Brother" live feed, which captures the contestants conversations and is continuously streamed on the Internet, Gries was seen sitting with GinaMarie Zimmerman and Kaitlin Barnaby talking about some of the other houseguests.
CBS edited the conversation from the station's episode but a lot of people found the live stream of the women's conversation upsetting. After some consideration over what was said, Zephyr Talent decided to let the model out of her contract. The Austin, Texas based agency released a statement on Facebook saying that they found Gries' comments to be offensive.
On the video, Zimmerman, Gries and Banarby are seen sitting in a hammock talking about several of the competitors. According to the Huffington Pst, they first begin talking about Helen, who is an Asian-American.
"Dude, shut up, go make some rice," Gries said with Zimmerman adding "Andy was like, 'I'm gonna punch her in the face,' and I was like 'Maybe that'll make her eyes straight.'"
They then begin talking about Howard and Candice, who are both African-American. Someone in the video refers to them as a "black Barbie and Ken" while someone else blurts out "blackness." Gries then moves on to Andy saying that he might get MVP "because everybody loves the queers."
According to Zap2It, producers did get on the loud speaker after hearing the conversation and warned everybody not to make racial slurs about the other contestants. TMZ reports that Gries also came under fire when she told an African-American contestant to "Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that bitch."
Even though Gries has reportedly been dropped by her modeling agency she still remains in the house.
According to the Huffington Post, CBS responded to the incident by releasing a statement saying that they "do not condone" that kind o behavior and found it to be "offensive."
"'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."
