How is she not racist? Her apology is a farce.
âBig Brotherâ Aaryn Apologizes For Racist Comments (After Extremely Racist Rant)
Big Brother 15 contestant Aaryn Gries finally apologized for her racist comments after a stand-off between cast mates and one of the most racially charged tirades the young model has gone on since appearing on the show.
The reality TV competition has received criticism in recent weeks for airing highly insensitive and racist remarks from contestants Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman.
Though minority housemates have said that they will keep their distance from Aaryn for fear of jeopardizing their chances at winning, Africa-American co-stars Candice Stewart and Howard Overby finally confronted Aaryn about her racist attitude.
On Sundayâs episode, Aaryn flipped over Stewartâs mattress, scattering her possessions all over the floor. When Stewart confronted Aaryn, the latter adopted a âghettoâ accent, shouting âWhat you gonna do, girl? Class girl? Whereâs yo class?â
Zimmerman chimed in, shouting âYou want the black to come out?â
Overby intervened before the confrontation got out of hand.
âThe only way Iâm going to leave this house is by defending somebody. The only persons I honestly have to defend in this house is you and Helen because I fit in the same minority as yâall. Thatâs the only button they got to push, and theyâre gonna push you, which pushes me. And all I need is an excuse, and Iâll go home happy. No money or nothing,â Overby told Stewart.
She began to cry, and admitted, âAaryn is probably one of the meanest people Iâve ever met in my whole entire life. When I see someone with such malice in their eyes, I donât understand it.â
Aaryn later apologized to Stewart for her rude comments.
âCandice, Iâm sorry. Anybody that knows me knows that just because Iâm Southern, and I say things that are probably arenât appropriate all the time. I have nothing against any other race. And if I make a comment that seems like I do, I donât want it to be taken that way, and I donât want to offend you.â
In the Diary Room later on, she added: âI donât want her to be thinking that Iâm that type of person and I also donât want her to be using that against me or spreading something about me thatâs not true.â
The irony, of course, is that many publications, television hosts and social media users have already branded Aaryn a racist and bigoted person, and she has even lost her job in the outside world over her comments. She doesnât know it yet because of the whole âno contact with the outside worldâ thing Big Brother has in the rule book.
Boy, are you in for a rude surprise of your own, Aaryn.
Some may not be fully aware, if at all, in regards to all this girl has done and said. Among others.
If you are interested, it is all out there for you to see.
Any way, during her 'apology' to Candice, and otherwise, she made it clear the fault lies with others as they took her words incorrectly. No personal responsibility at all.
How in the hell any one can think, for less than a second, that this girl is anything other than an ugly, racist human being astounds me.
Yes, I have been watching the show. I would not be able to remain in that house, regardless of the prize money up for grabs. I am not sure if I commend the others for not walking out of the house or not. Although i can see if one did leave that lead this little girl to think she won.
I would love to be a fly on the wall when this little girl, and the other one, leave that house and walk right in to the reality they created for themselves.
Now, do people really want to say racism doesn't exist? Or is she some how justified in her rants?
