The season premiere of Big Brother 16 on CBS is still two days away; however, the reality TV show is already embroiled in a controversy. During BB15 racist comments from the house guests caused some serious backlash, and it looks like TPTB have place another highly opinionated player in the house for the 2014 season.
It’s not unusual for diehard fans to cyber-stalk the new cast of Big Brother players when the network reveals their names, but what they found on Caleb Reynold’s Instagram page was downright disturbing. The 26-year-old southerner is an army veteran and hunting guide, and he was apparently super upset when President Obama was reelected. Reynolds manages to diss Muslims, homosexuals, and African Americans…all in one Instagram post.
After Obama was reelected, Reynolds posted a photo of this message on Instagram, “Yeah for Obama, he gets to shred this country apart for another four years. Only God can help us now.” When one of Reynolds’s followers commented on his post and disagreed with him, he went ballistic and posted this hate-filled comment. “You believe in murder? You agree with fags? I guess so but I don’t agree with murdering an innocent baby which he clearly doesn’t mind. Nothin has changed in the last four years. You know it. Your just a democrat who wants that Muslim monkey in office. I’m done with you. You’re dismissed.”
Since the post on Instagram was discovered by the media it was quickly deleted from Caleb Reynold’s page; however, whoever did the deleting was a little too late because there are screenshots all over the internet of it. One has to wonder how a multimillion dollar franchise like Big Brother didn’t find something so negative and racist on one of their potential houseguests. A middle schooler could have conducted the search and found this “big news.” Or, did they see the post and decide to put him in the house to stir up ratings like last year’s racism fiasco?
