The housemate behind the latest scandal to hit the CBS reality series is railroad conductor Spencer Clawson, who previously hit the headlines for his involvement in the show’s racism and homophobia storm.
While fellow housemate McCrae took a shower, Spencer picked up his microphone and said: “I love to beat off to child porn, have I ever told y’all about that?”
“I love it, beating off to child porn if my favourite thing to do. I love it when they’re fucking around three or four years old. My favourite ones are when you can tell they’re in a basement.”
Sickened fans heard the comments on the show’s live feed on Monday.
The comments attracted interest from the police in Spencer’s hometown of Conway, Arkansas.
Conway Police Department chief A.J. Gary told TMZ: “Due to the nature of the comments, our department moved quickly to look into the matter. At this time we haven’t found that any criminal act was committed.”
The controversial housemate’s employer Union Pacific Railroad said: “Due to the volume of feedback Union Pacific has received from the public about Spencer Clawson’s August 5 comments on the CBS reality show Big Brother 15, the company wants to reiterate that it has taken all the action it can under the Collective Bargaining Agreement until Mr. Clawson is released from the show.
“Mr. Clawson took an unpaid leave of absence to participate on Big Brother 15. Union Pacific has notified law enforcement of Mr. Clawson’s August 5 comments.”
The fifteenth outing of the CBS reality series has proven so controversial that bosses have been forced to air a warning before each episode to clarify that they don’t condone any ‘prejudicies held by houseguests’
Spencer previously referred to fellow housemates Andy and Helen as ‘Kermit the fag’ and ‘Kim Jong Un’ respectively, and has also made pro-Nazi comments throughout the series.
