There has been no lack of controversy on this 15th season of Big Brother and most of it has been coming from house guest Amanda Zuckerman. There have been so many racial rants made by this house guest that she has basically ridiculed Asians, Latinos, Puerto Ricans, Blacks, autistic and gay people.
Last Friday Amanda went on the attack against house guest Jessie calling her a slut, telling her to go f*ck herself and a whole lot more just because Jessie wanted to get her out of the house.
If that all wasn’t enough, yesterday Amanda continued her bullying against African-American house guest Candice and went so far as referring to her as a “monkey.” There just doesn’t seem to be any boundaries in Candace’s racial bullying. I just keep wondering how much it is going to take for Big Brother to throw this horrid bully out of the house. But then I have to stop an remember, this does make good ratings, doesn’t it?
I can just imagine how the other contestants must feel though, isolated in the house and constantly being verbally abused by Amanda. I feel sorry for them, they shouldn’t have be made to feel like that. Hopefully Candice has Howard’s attitude in that he said to Julie Chen after he left the house, “I chose to take the high road. Let them have that, I’m not going to dip down to their level.”
You can check out the live cam recording below and hear Amanda refer to Candice as monkey; she tries to whisper, maybe she even realizes that she is pushing her racial comments too far, but I doubt it.
Up to now Big Brother has been facing strict criticism for the unbelievable amount of racial slurs this season, but the bigger the controversy, the higher the ratings.
