CBS'sTB reality show "Big Brother 15" will be remembered for a long time. This season contained offensive and racial remarks. Some contestants will discover that they lost their jobs because of their racial remarks. Perhaps the most memorable is Aaryn Gries for the racist and homophobic slurs she slung at the other houseguests.
Although Aaryn Gries’ mother loves and supports her, she is not happy with the show’s producers or Julie Chen. She accuses them of highlighting Aaryn's offensive statements to boost their ratings. She’s even hired a publicist to deal with damage control.
Elizabeth Owens sent a statement to the Los Angeles Times, saying, "While I love and continue to support my daughter Aaryn, words cannot describe my disappointment in some of her comments made on 'Big Brother. These inappropriate comments certainly do not represent the value system under which her father and I have raised her. Aaryn is a young 22-year-old college student that has spent 70 days living in a fish bowl and making mistakes for America to see. [We wanted] Americans to see the young woman that I know; Aaryn is kind, loving and generous, though certainly not perfect and without fault in this incidence."
Elizabeth didn't quit there. She said that Aaryn attended her senior prom with an African American man. The first man she fell in love with was Cuban and she has cousins who are of Japanese descent. She joined the Save the Children program to sponsor a little girl in the Philippines.
In Aaryn's interview with Julie Chen, she said that she didn't remember saying those things. Aaron blames her usage of racial slurs on the fact that she lives in Texas.
