Big Brother USA contestant slammed by viewers after using N-word
Big Brother USA is in the spotlight for the wrong reasons again, after a contestant was heard using the N-word during the reality show’s live feed.
Life coach Kaitlyn Herman was caught on camera singing Drake’s ‘0 to 100’ and she included the line: “We go 0 to 100, n***er, real quick.” Her fellow housemate Scottie Salton, who was singing with her, did not sing that line (via The Hollywood Reporter).
Viewers were horrified to hear the language and many called for Kaitlyn to be removed from the house.
Big Brother USA told Digital Spy in a statement: “Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 – and capturing every unfiltered moment and conversation in their lives.
“At times, the houseguests reveal prejudices and exhibit behaviour that we do not condone. The producers have addressed two such incidents that were seen recently on the 24/7 online feed.
“In both cases, those involved have been warned about their inappropriate behaviour and offensive comments, as well as future consequences. These events will not be part of any future Big Brother broadcast on CBS.”
The incident comes just a few days after two other contestants on the show, Angela Rummans and Rachel Swindler, were reprimanded for comparing their white skin colours to that of their African-American housemate Bayleigh Dayton.
On the live feed, Rachel said: “My stomach is as dark as Bay. I can’t be in the sun for two days straight… I will change ethnicities. I already have.”
Angela then added: “I’m looking ghetto here with the skin colouration.”
The UK version of the show is expected to return to our screens at some point soon, with reports suggesting that Channel 5 bosses have postponed the start of the series so that it does not clash with ITV2’s Love Island.
There are also rumours that this series could be the last ever season, but just in case it’s not we’ve come up with some ideas on how to make the show great again.
Big Brother USA airs on CBS in the US.
