Big Brother 15's Aaryn Confronted for Racist Remarks by Julie Chen (Video)

SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW THE RESULTS!

On this week’s live eviction episode of Big Brother, the moment that many people have been waiting for all season finally came when Aaryn Gries was confronted by Julie Chen for her racist remarks made during the game.

Aaryn was evicted from the house during the show and during her exit interview with Julie, she was asked to comment on the things she said.

“Being Southern, it is a stereotype and I have said some things that have been taken completely out of context and wrong. I do not mean to ever come off racist. That is not me and I apologize to anyone I have offended for that,” Aaryn said. She received a ton of boos and laughs from the audience, even though they are specifically told not to react during the interview.

Julie then noted that everything said while she was in the house was streamed live on the internet and then read back some of the things Aaryn has said, including:

  • “Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see the b-tch,” referring to Candice, an African-American contestant; “Shut up, go make some rice,” referring to Helen, an Asian contestant; and “Nobody is going to vote for whoever that queer puts up,” referring to Andy, a gay contestant.

“I honestly feel horrible. I feel like in Texas we say things that are sometimes… we joke and we don’t mean it,” Aaryn said in her final remarks. “I really feel bad that this is how it has been seen and how I’ve come across to people. I don’t want to seem like that person and I really do respect everyone in this game, although we have had some really hard times because we’re all fighting for our lives in the game.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Aaryn’s reaction to Julie’s questions?

Um, I’m in Texas and I found Aaryn’s remarks disgusting, so no, it’s not something “we say in Texas.”

# 2

So basically she’s saying that everyone from Texas talks like that. Girl bye… I’m not even from Texas and I don’t believe that. She’s racist!

# 3

The worst part about this is that she’s excusing her racism on being Southern. I’m Southern and that’s not an excuse for being a rotten person. In the end, it was still all about her. About how SHE felt bad that SHE was seen that way. Not directly apologetic about what she said, but that it was called out. I think the better thing to comment on here is how gracious Julie Chen was. Sure, she has to be, but there wasn’t a bit of frigidity from her and her final remark to Aaryn had just the right amount of shade.

She feels bad her racism was just recorded & uploaded for anyone to see. It’s funny how racism works.. you can be racist , but when your called out on it , you deny it ? using “being southern” as an excuse to be stupid is not a good enough reason . Shut up .

# 5

SPOILERS!!!

EXCEPT THE PICTURE AND NAME OF THE PERSON IS RIGHT THERE. IN THE TITLE.

# 6

I’m a Texan and don’t you dare say we joke like that. Only the bigots do!!

# 7

Not only does she try to deny it she comes up with the lamest excuse about it being a Southern thing. Girl please she’s just shame that everyone knows she’s a racist.

@JM: I am from the South (Alabama) and cringe with disgust when I hear simply its a southern thing to say stupid rants about people. It is not a Southern thing, its horrible people who can come from anywhere at anytime.

Julia Chen and CBS are just trying to keep the race issue going, there were things said on both sides.

This was the best interview EVER!!!!!!! Aaryn got what she deserved. Julie so soooo awesome.

Not your friend @ 08/29/2013 at 11:12 pm

You’ve ruined ittttt, it’s playing later tonight in Canadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

There is no excuse for the things she said. She should be ashamed of herself. And how can you not remember what you said to helen, candice and andy….have you been drinking too much nail polish remover? I am not one to be-little someone but it’s right there on the internet, the things she said and the way she acted….

Ohh soo..it’s because your from Texas I guess that is a good “excuse”. It was the way she said it to so she can’t use anymore of her excuses.

@Dan: Sorry but it does not take a brain scientist to know ahead of time b4 it actually happens that Aaron is next to be evicted.

Sorry it does not take a psychic to figure out Aaryn is the next to be evicted b4 it happens next wk.

I don’t care if you live on a park bench, have a fabulous home, or just crawled out from under a rock, it’s NOT ok to be racist. EVER. It’s not right as a joke (who would laugh at stuff like that?), and has no place in my idea of society. Take your pathetic butt back to TX, and start praying girl.

I can’t help but wonder if Julie will be as hard on Amanda who has made even worse racist comments.

Julie let her off easy I thought. She’s said a lot worse since those initial comments the first week. She called Candice Aunt Jemima a couple of times and said she should go make some waffles and pancakes. She compared Mexicans to gorillas last night.

Aaryn knew this was coming. She talked about it with Amanda, one of the other racists. Their conversation turned into a riff from Amanda about Asian drivers and how Asians are only good for making Chinese food.

The other racists need to be called out too. And they should stop portraying Andy as a victim. That little instigator laughed at most of the racist jokes.

Also, no one on the US version of BB has ever been booed when they got evicted. That was a first.

Damn i didnt know Texas was like that. Well i mean we see it in the news about the racism and stuff. But to get comfirmation is something else.
