Another "Big Brother" contestant shocks viewers again with controversial remarks on the show. On Monday, August 5, Spencer Clawson was overheard talking about child pornography in the program's 24-hour live feeds.
"I like to beat off to child porn. Did I ever tell y'all about that?" he's captured telling fellow HouseGuest Spencer Clawson. He continued, "I love it. Beating off to child porn is my favorite thing there is."
Spencer didn't stop there as he later said to Amanda Zuckerman and Andy Herren, "I love it when they're around 3 or 4 years old. My favorite ones are when you can tell they're in a basement." Andy looked uncomfortable, saying, "Oh God," before changing the subject.
Police in Spencer's hometown in Arkansas were alerted to his offensive comments and have launched an investigation, but found nothing so far. "The Conway Police Department was alerted to comments made. 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," Chief AJ Gary tells TMZ.
CBS has also released a statement in regards to Spencer's statements. " 'Big Brother' is a reality show following a group of people who have no privacy 24/7, and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by Spencer on the live Internet feed to be offensive," it states.
"Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on 'Big Brother', either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking, and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program."
The network previously released a similar statement after HouseGuests Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman stirred a controversy with their racial slurs. CBS Corp. president and CEO Leslie Moonves recently said at the TCA that "some of the [contestants'] behavior absolutely appalling."
Spencer is currently among the nominated HouseGuests for eviction, replacing Jessie who won the Power of Veto. He's in the chopping block along with Candice and Amanda, who was chosen by this week's Head of Household GinaMarie.
