BB15: Aaryn's Racist Remarks Lose Her a Modeling Contract
|Sorry Aaryn, but unless the racists vote for you, that's prolly not gonna happen.|
Already in the first week of Big Brother 15 the controversy has been great, and Aaryn Gries has been at the center of the majority of it.
If you have the BB15 live feeds then you're probably already up to speed on the racist comments Aaryn has made in the house. If not, here's some examples:
"[Helen] should shut up and go make rice," Aaryn referring to Helen, the Asian contestant.
"Be careful what you say in the dark, you may not be able to see the bitch," Aaryn referring to Candice, the African American female in the house.
She also referred to the gay contestant, Andy, as a "queer."
Aaryn's racist and homophobic comments were brought to the attention of the rest of the internet yesterday after The Huffington Post, NPR and TMZ all picked up on them. The result has been Aaryn losing her modeling contract with Zephyr Talent in Austin, Texas.
I found this photo of Aaryn modeling scrubs on Twitter, thanks to @MamaXanax:

Zephyr Talent has released a statement regarding Aaryn, and let's just say, they want nothing to do with her racist ass.
"Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by Aaryn on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by Aaryn, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are hers alone and do not represent the views or opinions of Zephyr Talent. Upon much consideration, we have decided to release Aaryn from her contract with Zephyr Talent."
Read their message on their Facebook page. The comments are worth the click.
Aaryn might get away with her racist quips in BB15, but she certainly won't be getting away with them in real life.
