CBS Television Network: To expel current contestant of Big Brother 15 Aaryn Gries

    1. Petition by

      Ed King

      West Hollywood, CA

Aaryn Gries has made racist and homophobic comments since she entered the Big Brother house. Racism and Homophobia shouldn't be allowed while competing in a TV show that streams live 24 hours a day.

Here are some of the racist and homophobic comments Aaryn Gries has made on Big Brother 15:

-- "They (referring to two African-american contestants) are going to stick together because of the black thing"

-- "Learn how to talk, it's asked, not aksed," while talking to another African-american contestant.

-- "Shut up and go and make some rice," referring to an Asian contestant

-- "He could get MVP (a privilege given by viewers to the favorite contestant every week) because everyone loves the queers," referring to a gay contestant

-- "She is the first Asian I know who doesn't do nails," referring to an Asian contestant.

CBS Television Network and the production of Big Brother must take swift action to condemn Aaryn's remarks, and Aaryn must be expelled. These steps are necessary for both Aaryn and the station to prove they can be trusted to report objectively on issues that impact the human rights and LGBT community.

      Hi everybody!

      Thanks so much for your support. We have now over 1000 signatures.
      I just wanted to make clear that our goal was set at 500 signatures.

      For those who are wondering why the petition still shows "Signatures Needed" I would like to explain that this is how change.org works. Because our goal was 500 hundred, each time we reach a new goal of 500 signatures, another 500 will be added automatically as needed.

      This will happen until I close the petition or declare victory on the movement. I decided to leave the petition open to get as many signatures as possible. The most signature we receive the best opportunities we will have to pressure CBS.

      Remember to share this with your friends and network. Each time that a signature is received, an email is automatically sent to everybody listed on the petition, all of them CBS and Endemol executives.

      Thank You

      Not only because I greatly disagree with how Aaryn acted, the comments she made etc. but also because I don't think she should be allowed to associate herself with Big Brother because its an embarrassment and huge dishonour to go on television and use such racist and/or homophobic comments AND THEN get away with it. It's not fair. Get rid of her now like everybody should have done on the show.

      Racism and Homophobia shouldn't be allowed not just on TV but anywhere there is no need for it
