|Big Brother 15's Spencer comments on his offensive remarks|
Now that Spencer is out of the Big Brother house, he's having to answer for that tasteless joke, and I'm sure it's not been an easy task. Spencer spoke with ETonline after the BB15 finale, and he's truly sorry for his actions/words, and he hopes to keep his job at Union Pacific Railroad. He also says he hopes his controversial Big Brother past does not follow him into his future.
ETonline: But you said a lot of controversial things as well, and as a result, your company released a statement distancing themselves from you. What's your reaction to that?
Spencer: My union is involved with this, and I'm extremely apologetic for the things I said. I love my job and want to keep it. Sometimes you just make stupid jokes. It was almost like a fraternity house in there -- anything goes, and whether that's right or not, I made some bad judgment calls and I hope the company will take me back. I am a good employee.
ETonline: Your local police also investigated you during the course of the show for really heinous things you said about child pornography. Care to clear that up?
Spencer: I picked up [McCrae's] mic and was saying goofy things. I've heard what a big deal that was, and I do think that was blown out of proportion. And I'm even scared to say that because ... I'm actually really paranoid about that right now. It was a bad joke, I admit it, but I would like to say that I was not condoning any behavior or accusing McCrae of any behavior. That's not me. I know the police department in my hometown got involved, but I was just being stupid. Of all the things to follow you around, I hope that doesn't follow me about. Good god. Having the word "pedophile" attached to your name can be bad news, dude. I hope it doesn't haunt me.
"I hope it doesn't haunt me." - Spencer Clawson on his bad joke.
And no, Spencer has not been fired at this point. However, his employer did release a statement regarding his employment status.
