CBS Slaps Disclaimer on ‘Big Brother’: Beware “Prejudice”

'Viewer discretion is advised,' network warns

CBS took the unprecedented step of adding a disclaimer to “Big Brother” ahead of Sunday’s episode, which featured yet another racism-tinged encounter among its cast.

“At times, the Houseguests may reveal prejudices and other beliefs that CBS does not condone,” the disclaimer read. “Views or opinions expressed by a houseguest are those of the individuals speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS. Viewer discretion is advised.”

Cast members Aaryn and Candice got into a heated argument in the previous episode that featured racist remarks. On Sunday’s episode, Aaryn defended herself to her fellow contestants by explaining that she was joking. Season 15 has proved to be perhaps the most controversial one yet for the series.
