Does another season of ‘Big Brother’ automatically result in another controversy? Well, it looks that way. The show premieres on June 25, but fans are already weary of Caleb Reynolds, the 26-year-old contestant whose racist remarks against Obama just came out!
Caleb Reynolds plans to win Big Brother by keeping “the ladies” in his pocket, according to his bio. However, those ladies may not be too thrilled when they read his now-deleted Instagram post, that totally disses both homosexuals and Muslims!
‘Big Brother’: Caleb Reynolds’ Racist Comments
“Yeah for Obama. He gets to shred this country apart another 4 years. Only God can help us now!!” Caleb wrote in his “notes” on his iPhone and posted a screengrab to Instagram. Since it’s now deleted, we can assume it was when President Obama was reelected in 2012.
However, after an Obama supporter commented on it, the Army prison guard turned Adventure Hunting Guide fired back — and his harsh comment was caught.
You believe in murder? You agree with f–s? I guess so but I dont agree with murdering a innocent baby which he clearly doesnt mind. Nothin has changed in these last four years. Yu know it Your jus a democrat that wants the Muslim monkey in your office. I’m done with you, your dismissed.
As we know, Big Brother does full background and social media checks on their cast — so is there a chance they missed this? Or did they see it and turn the other cheek?
‘Big Brother’ In Hot Water Again
On season 15, the show had a huge boost in ratings when Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman both made continual racists comments to African American and Asian housemates. So many are shocked this is an issue again.
After the story surfaced about Caleb, his friends and family of course came to his defense, explaining he wrote the post two years ago after he returned from Iraq (he was on tour). “A racist man doesn’t fight next to black man in this country,” his brother told TMZ.
Additionally, an African American friend posted a YouTube video explaining that there was no way Caleb was racist. So, I guess we’ll see if the show touches on the topic or not! The two-part premiere begins June 25 at 8PM EST on CBS. Will you be watching?
