Julie Chen discusses racism in the Big Brother House by Aaryn. The above clip also shows the bigot reel from last night in case you missed it. Julie says she was personally hurt by the comments about Asians as she didn’t believe people still felt like that in this day and age!
Sharon says that people in her generation used those terms but she is 22 years old and in college and times have changed and we know better now. It is interesting that The Talk panel has Black, Asian, and Gay women at the table. Sara jokingly said she was most offended by the black comments. Aisha says she was most offended by the gay slurs. Aisha says imagine if that is what comes out of her censored mouth in whispered tones what she is actually thinking but NOT saying. Sharon says several times that Aaryn is obviously very, very troubled.
Jules says she has poked fun at Asian stereotypes before on the show, but it was all in good fun. And she is Asian. The comments Aaryn makes come from a mean, vindictive place. Sheryl (and others) said that they are very proud of CBS for showing the issues. Julie says the reason they included it is because her behavior is now driving the game. Julie Chen says she hopes that the bigots in the house will say, “Wow. is that really who I am? Is that who I want to be?”
Wow. Can you imagine Julie Chen doing Aaryn’s exit interview? That will be must see TV.
