'Big Brother' adds disclaimer for prejudice
We’ve all seen TV content disclaimers for violence, profanity and nudity. Now CBS has added one to Sunday night’s Big Brother — for prejudice.
Read the warning: “Big Brother is a reality show about a group of people who have no privacy 24/7. At times, the Houseguests may reveal prejudices and other beliefs that CBS does not condone. 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.”
The 15th season of Big Brother has shown more than one houseguest making racist comments to other contestants on the show. Some have criticized the program for including such content. Yet the show’s viewership has climbed in the wake of the controversy.
