BB15 Aaryn: Petition to Remove Her From The Game

BB15 Aaryn Petition Big Brother 15
Big Brother 15's Aaryn: Petition by upset fans makes the rounds on Twitter
If you keep with BB15 on Twitter you probably heard about the online fan created petition to have Aaryn removed from the game after making some distasteful remarks. At the time I write this there are 1244 signatures.

The petition reads as follows:
To expel former contestant of Big Brother 15 Aaryn Gries
A group of us have been alerted to the fact that the Big Brother contestant, Aaryn Gries has made several racist and homophobic comments. Although CBS will most likely edit these images to avoid these comments on public television, Big Brother streams live 24 hours for those fans who subscribe to this service.
These are some of the comments:
"They (referring to two African-american contestants) are going to stick together because of the black thing"
"Learn how to talk, it's asked, not asked" [edit: they meant "axed"] while talking to another African-american contestant.
"Shut up and go and make some rice" referring to an Asian contestant.
"He could get MVP (a privilege given by viewers to the favorite contestant every week) because everyone loves the queers" referring to a gay contestant.
These comments spread right away over Twitter and other social media by many of the fans watching the live feeds. Most fans of the popular show have requested to the CBS Twitter account the forced eviction of this contestant. 

I know this is a heated subject, so I am wondering what you, the fans, think about the petition asking to remove Aaryn from BB15. Did you sign the petition? Do you think Big Brother should take some sort of action, and if so, what? Do you disagree and think that Big Brother should let the cards fall where they may? One thing's for sure, the backlash Aaryn and other houseguests will receive after they're out of the game will be intense to say the least.

Order the BB15 live feeds and see what they don't show on TV!

  1. Dick wasn't removed was he? Aaryn true colors have shown, leave it at that. No one should be expelled, no one got physically harmed.

    1. Yeah racism should all over television.
      "Dude, shut up and make some rice."
      "Better watch what you say in the dark because you can't see that bitch in the dark!"
      Yeah that should be okay for Aaryn to say on Country wide television that with no consequences.

  2. Hey Spicy -- boy, has social media EXPLODED regarding Aaryn specifically (and other houseguests peripherally). I read the petition and gave it some thought - and I'm still on the fence about the entire thing. I truly don't know if it will result in any sort of action anyway.

    What I do know is that there is a level of expectations when you are a #BB fan. You know there will be stupidity, lying, backstabbing and all around general shenanigans. However, this summer's group seems (note - this is just MY opinion) particularly immature & suspect. The fact that this is only week #1 and we have such issues & uproar is shocking.

    At the end of the day - bigotry, racism, and misogyny are SERIOUS issues and not ones to be condoned. Should the #BB executives remove players (specifically Aaryn) from the game? Maybe. They remove them for physical violent conduct - should her words be viewed with the same lens?

    Perhaps there needs to be some sort of "intervention" from the executives - and Allison Grodner's voice in the sky gives them the smack down? My biggest worry is that NOTHING happens – and CBS decides to disregard the entire situation, presenting a clean & highly edited version of this summer’s activities. That would be the real shameful behavior.

  3. I think with Huffington Post, and a Dallas news station picking up on the events, CBS will have to. Address this in some fashion. However, as far as we know, no HG has complained to BB. Until one does, it should play out. If someone does complain , them I say punishment should occur. I hate to keep bringing it back to UK version, but a solution may be to show the entire house the offending remarks and let.them see how we on the outside see it. Richardfromno

  4. To do nothing is wrong there must be at least a warning to her. Dick was warned btw (reference to the first comment) To remove her !!! No ! Then they will have to rethink many things. But I would think it would be wrong to see a edited version all summer. Something must be done without removing her. Is she racist because of what she says ? Maybe she doesn't think before she speak. I have heard "the blackthing" comment but didn't react to it as racist

  5. I don't think she should be removed from the house. BUT I do think that CBS should air the things she has said! If they continue with the season portraying her as "America's Sweetheart" or, as you thought with your first impression, another Jordan type I am going to have to stop watching. That type of edit would just be so far out of bounds. If the house guests are gonna say it then it should be shown as part of their personality/character. I saw the comment about Helen live on the feeds and my jaw dropped. I honestly could not believe someone would really say that let alone on camera. What a moron.

  6. I think they need to air what she has said and then let America vote on whether or not she stays. Let the viewers decide her fate.

    Even if she doesn't get booted off the show, I am betting they have probably warned her already. Further, once she is off the show, I have a feeling life is gonna be extremely difficult for her with all this negative publicity.

    I think people should quit being upset and grow a thicker skin.. maybe she comes from somewhere small and in a little town you grow up saying what ever you want. So I don't blame her.. I support her for making the game interesting. If you can't handle the game maybe you can go watch some paint dry

    1. Shes not making the game interesting. This is about who she is as a person. What kind of a small down can she possibly living in? In this time and age, racism and discrimination should NOT be supported in any way.

    3. If you read Aaryn's profile, she is not from some small town, she attends Univ. of Austin, Tx. which happens to be the state capitol.

    4. Obviously you are from the white majority class wherever you reside in 'cause you wouldn't say "quit being upset and grow a thicker skin" in regards to racist bullying! I hate racist bullies with a passion 'cause I had to run away from older+bigger ones from the age of 8 just 'cause they wanted to beat me up 'cause of the colour of my skin!...Do you really think that racist bullying is okay???... just 'cause it doesn't happen to you!

    5. Wow, how unbelivably disgusting that you think this is okay and people should grow a thicker skin. It's people like you that let hatred, bigotry, and racism continue in this world. You need to grow up and realize that this is not okay, it is not about growing a thicker skin, it is about hatreds that cause wars, gangs, violence, and the KKK. People are just people, it doesn't matter what their skin colour is, their religion is, or they're sexual preference is. You are a sick, pathetic person.

  8. I don't think they should expel Aaryn. I think her racist remarks should be televised. That way, everyone can see what shes really like and she can suffer the consequences from the backlash when shes evicted out of the game.

    I originally thought she was going to be another Bitchney (Britney from BB12) but I will be really disgusted if production edits her anything other than who she really is. I dont understand how they can edit people to be like saints when they actually arent. The BB cast are not actors/actresses, show their true personalities. Whats the point of hiding it when we can see it on live feeds.

  9. She should be evicted along with Jeremy. Racial slurs and bullying does not make the game interesting. If they stay it just shows that this type of behaviour is acceptable, clearly these two people may have gotten away with this for far to long. Its not game play when your just being ignorant and have a huge ego that they think they can say whatever they want.

  10. I think she should be removed from the game.She will be putting people up for eviction and voting against them because of the color of their skin or sexual preference and that is just the wrong way to pkay this game They both need to go. I hope cbs does the right thing.

    1. lol you're probably right about her putting up people for eviction because of their skin colour or sexual orientation...

      Aryan already chose the minorities (Candice, Helen and andy) to be the have nots...

  11. Considering her names is Aryan, I think people should be suspicious of what is real about her and what is meant for the ratings. Either way, it's really offensive to most viewers and should not be ignored by the producers of the show.

  12. We should have zero tolerance for racism in today's society. If we want to stop it we must make an example of those who use their freedom of speech rights to harm others or make people feel less worthy. Remove her! We're all proud of our own race and beliefs, but have some commonsense and manners when making your feelings known. The world can never move past the pain and anger as long as people like her keep spewing their hatred all over the place.

  13. If some of you are "still on the fence" about what to think, watch this: It is the Big Brother 15 Bigotry Supercut. The media is only showing a couple of comments and there is FAR more and far worse that has been said.

  14. Why would a major television network tolerate such racism, bigotry or bullying other than ratings and advertising $$$. Chen and her husband have power to yank Ms Aaryn Nation immediately...especially after skewering Paula Dean and others. To use the excuse of this being "reality tv) is disgusting to say the least.

  15. Its ppl like Aaryn, GinaMarie, Amanda, and her boy toy, who show their true colors. Why do everyone have a disgust for the blacks? To me they haven't done anything wrong. This is how our country truly is. So happy its EXPOSED!!
