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.”
