The 15th season of Big Brother is barely underway, but controversy is already surrounding the show after many of the houseguests made racist and homophobic comments about each other. Now, host Julie Chen speaks about her feelings towards those comments.
“Personally, I was offended,” Chen told TMZ. “I was offended by all the comments — the anti-gay, the anti-black, but especially the anti-Asian ones… for obvious reasons.”
The comments to which Chen refers includes one by Aaryn Gries, a houseguest who made the anti-Asian remark that fellow contestant Helen Kim should “go make some f**king rice.” But even in the face of comments like that, Chen kept her cool and remained classy. She said she’s hopeful that Gries will be able to “change the way she thinks” once she leaves the Big Brother house.
Chen does take a shot at Gries when asked about the houseguest being dropped by her modeling agency, but we’ll give her that one. Check out the video below.
