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

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.
