Racial and homophobic slurs used by the housemates of “Big Brother” have caused an uproar of outrage with some fans starting a petition, asking the CBS show to kick off an especially mouthy contestant, according to E! News .
In its 15th season, Aaryn Gries has “revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone,” her modeling agency Zephyr Talent stated upon releasing her from the agency Wednesday.
The 22-year-old’s racial and homophobic remarks, however, have yet to make their way to the primetime TV episodes of “Big Brother” that began airing last week.
