Big Brother 15: Spencer Clawson Jokes About Child Porn (Disgusting)

If overt racism, homophobia and misogyny isn’t enough, now things in the Big Brother 15 house are becoming even more disgusting.

Spencer Clawson, who hasn’t been shy about revealing his haterade (and upsetting his employers in the process)  definitely stepped over a line last night that should never be crossed.  I mean this is stuff you just don’t joke about in any way shape or form.

Child pornography. Yes, Spencer made jokes about child porn that were graphic and very specific.  I’m going to post the dialogue, transcribed via Big Brother Spice. Warning, if you find talk of sexual abuse at all triggering? Don’t read.

While in the bathroom, Spencer, Amanda and Andy are talking as McCrae showers. They are talking about how easy the spray tan washes off and then suddenly, completely out of the blue, Spencer says, “I like to beat off to child p*rn. Did I ever tell y’all about that?”

“Oh God,” says Andy.

“I love it. Beating off to child p*rn is my favorite thing there is.” Spencer is talking directly into his microphone…or is that McCrae’s?

He continues, “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 is uncomfortable, Amanda smiles. Andy changes the subject by asking what they are having for dinner. BB15 fans are left feeling dirty (once again) after watching the live feeds.

WHAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? WERE THEY DROPPED ON THEIR HEADS AS CHILDREN? Sorry for the all-caps, but WHAT THE HELL?

ETA: The transcript I quoted is a little confusing. Other accounts report that Spencer picks up McRae’s microphone and pretends to be him. The detail clarifies the scenario a little, but does not make the joke any less inappropriate or tasteless.

As the only other African American in the house is about to be evicted at the hands of the houseguests  (Aaryn and GinaMarie) who have been abusing her, this latest development has to have CBS really squirming. The network has got to do a better job of screening prospective contestants. Sure you want drama. There need to be villains. But the out and out hatred and seriously gross behavior is hard to watch.

Take it from Jun, winner of Big Brother season 4. After witnessing Spencer’s atrocious behavior on last night’s feeds, she’s decided to STOP blogging Big Brother all together.

I’m leaving you. I can’t take you anymore.

You’re supposed to be part dirt and part strategy but you’re mostly human trash in every sense of the word, save for the few kind-hearted HGs that make you up. You’re supposed to be fun, but time and time again you’ve proven to be the bottom of the barrel in poor representation of The United States of America. Glorified behaviors in the name of ratings, and scrapings from under the toenails of closeted racists and misogynists and homophobes. Now, most recently, children have been brought under the veil of “sexual jokes” or just “jokes” to some.

What the fuck has happened to you?

    This is such a vile cast!

  • girlygirl

    I’ve never watched BB, but if I did, I think reading all these horrible stories would make me glad that TWC has taken CBS off its cable system (because of a fight over pricing), because now I couldn’t watch it even if I wanted to.

    Seriously, is there anyone in this cast who ISN’T a horrible person?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I believe that television, and specifically CBS, has now reached an all-time new low in broadcasting.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Take it from Jun, winner of Big Brother season 4. After witnessing Spencer’s atrocious behavior on last night’s feeds, she’s decided to STOP blogging Big Brother all together”

    With respect, I wish that MJ’s would stop blogging about this show too. Just seeing the headlines revolts me.

  • HermeticallySealed

    Just do not get the attraction to this show, but then, most of America’s viewing habits have always confounded me.

  • Miss Blue

    Oh my fucking god. Isn’t this illegal? Say hello to the FBI, Spencer and I hope the unemployment line.

    The majority of this cast is basically the dregs of the universe. Bigots, racists, sexists and perverts – CBS got them all.

    I will never watch this show again. Ever.

  • usedtobelucy

    Well, I’m happy. Because at least I don’t know any of these people.

    As others have said in the past about this crew, it’s hard to know which is more appalling — the disgusting thinking and behavior or the stupidity of saying this stuff on the Internet and tv.

    What are their friends and families thinking? And isn’t this guy’s father a *judge*???

  • surpriseleft

    Some people need to lighten up. If you followed every young man around with a microphone, you would hear all kinds of disgusting and offensive stuff. This is how people really act behind closed doors. The “racism” on this show is honestly pretty tame compared to what I’ve heard in private. It’s pretty clear that he’s joking about the child porn.

  • Last Laugh Lane

    sigh only Elissa, Jessie, and Candice (also the only 3 willing to make game moves). I would say Helen but she blindly sees past their stupidity and malice and associates herself with the worst in the house.

  • Eilonwy_has_an_emu

    And here I’d gone through life assuming that if I followed young men around with a microphone, I’d hear them blithering about f*cking willing young women (or men, or both) of roughly their own age, enlivened by the occasional MILF (or FILF).

    THAT wouldn’t offend me.

    As a regular Dan Savage reader, I’d also assumed many of these young men would blather about feet, bondage, furry costumes, threesomes, or other minor fetishes, which would make for lively TV but ALSO would not offend me.

    Being so stupid that they have to spout racist crap because they don’t have the brain cells to relate to people as individuals… and so dead to decency that they think abusing children is funny… THAT offends me. Their mamas and papas should have raised them with more sense — and I strongly suspect most parents manage it.

  • Miss Blue

    You are out of your mind. Having raised 5 sons to adulthood, all athletes which led to an abundance of other young men being in our household at all times, let me assure you that not a single one of them EVER joked about child porn, pedophilia, racism, or homosexuality. They also didn’t use the “c” word when referring to women, or the “n” word, or any other derogatory racist, bigoted bile.
    While they could be crude in the “fart, burp” type of way, and definitely mentioned lady parts from time to time, not one of these boys/men ever said anything remotely like the pigs on BB have said.

  • pj

    I feel bad that you think such behavior is the norm. I can assure you it isn’t.

  • Miss Blue

    Exactly! Honestly, I just can’t with anyone who can defend these people.

  • pj

    I haven’t been watching this season, but I have enjoyed past seasons. Yes, there was drama and backstabbing. I don’t remember anything like this. Glad I chose not to watch this season. I think the show has jumped the shark this year. Time to retire if these are the best cast members CBS could find. Oh, I love to hate the likes of Mike Bogie. He seems like a boy scout all of a sudden.

  • jan

    Child porn is not funny – ever. Real men don’t joke about such things – ever.

  • http://www.mjsbigblog.com/ mjsbigblog

    That’s not going to happen. Sorry.

  • James

    This group of people are so vile that they make liar, whiny Danielle from last season look like an angel.

  • usedtobelucy

    “This is how people really act behind closed doors. The “racism” on this
    show is honestly pretty tame compared to what I’ve heard in private.
    It’s pretty clear that he’s joking about the child porn.”

    Yikes! So the America you see really is represented by this people. That’s pretty horrible news.

  • Vivalepoire2

    Honestly, they keep giving America this dumb MVP twist, but can you just let us evict the hate? I know the game would not seem fair to some, but evicting Candice, who has done nothing but nice things for these people, while leaving these freaking monsters in the house… I don’t get it. It’s disgusting

  • Pippygirl

    Remind me not to go to a party at your house.

  • Tinawina

    I get that he intended it as a joke (I guess he was talking into the other guy’s microphone pretending to be him?) but who the hell jokes like that?

    It really just sounds like they’ve developed this anything goes culture among themselves, where people find it normal in this bubble to say damn near anything in the name of “outrageous” laughs. It’s like they think they’re being Russell Brand of Chelsea Handler or Howard Stern or somebody like that.

    Only they don’t have enough wit or brains to pull it off. And in the end they just end up revealing their own shortcomings.

  • HermeticallySealed

    I’ll be the first to admit that my group of friends can really push some boundaries when we joke, but I have not once heard anyone in our group joke about child porn. Maybe it’s because there are a few in the group who were molested, but regardless it has never been a subject any of us found humorous.

  • Ari

    I dont understand why he said this out of the blue. Is it supposed to be funny? Any context? Spencer has been saved by editing as they never showed his anti-gay slurs on the air and Im sure with something this crazy, they wont show it either. If hes telling the truth, he should be arrested…Otherwise, I dont get how this is funny…or was he trying to say McRae’s body looks like a kids?

  • ptslittlecomment

    How sad for you.

  • Eric Mitchell

    Even comedians are smart enough to not joke about Child Porn. Some thinks are just unnecessary and it disturbs me that this would even pop into this head to joke about

  • Eric Mitchell

    The whole situation makes no sense to me. It really came out of no where and was totally unnecessary and awkward

  • Miss Blue

    Andy and Jessie (I think it was her) heard the remarks and even this was not enough for them to blast the shit out of this guy.

    What will it take for somebody…anybody…in this cast to get outraged?

  • Tinawina

    I have no idea. I don’t get it.

  • mini_d

    Here’s another perspective (from last year’s winner, Ian).

    http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1rlp3fn

  • Holden17C

    While Spencer remains in the house, unaware of the goings-on in the outside world, the FBI will hopefully get a warrant to raid his home, go through his computer files, and trace his Internet movement. Then the REAL drama will begin.

  • ptslittlecomment

    Seriously, how can you condone such behavior? Even if it is the “norm in your world – and I truly feel bad for you if it is – that does not make it right or acceptable.

  • Miss Blue

    Ridiculous. He doesn’t want to defend the “joke” and then proceeds to defend the joke for 3 paragraphs. And then he has the gall to try to make Spencer the victim here. Ugh, these people make me ill.

  • lucky181

    Part of his quote was left out. He said “in a basement in MN.” It was McCrae’s microphone and McCrae is from MN so the assumption is he was pretending to be McCrae. Why say basement though? I’m not saying that Spencer watches kiddie porn but that was a weird, specific place….basement. Spencer’s father is a judge and his mother is a teacher. Wow, what they must think.

  • flog gnaw

    I’m a nineteen year old and my guy friends today and the guys I knew in high school never joked about child porn.

  • Tinawina

    From reading the note it seems like people are accusing this Spencer guy of being an actual pedophile, and the author is just pointing out no, it was just a bad, tasteless stupid joke where he was pretending to make someone else look bad. I get what he’s trying to say.

  • No Thanks

    You need new “friends”.

  • Karen C

    I’ve watched every season of this show, and I’ve never seen such terrible behavior as was on this year. It’s the first year that actually had the disclaimer this one does. I’ve never actually gotten the live feeds, I just follow them, I did consider it this year, but so glad I didn’t get them.

    CHild porn is nothing to joke about.

  • Not fit to print

    Also the mention of 3-4 year-olds. The specificity of these comments is worrying. He has given the matter some thought. If the police don’t check him out then I just don’t know.

  • Beaugard Stevens

    I don’t see how anyone could even think that is funny. Where’s the punchline?

  • lucky181

    I think I figured out where the basement comment comes from. It’s from a question asked on BB during a head of household competition. Who is more likely to live in the basement of their parents house? the answer was McCrae.

  • hcpoirot

    This is all in the name of money and rating that CBS still allow Spencer, Gina Marie and Aaryn in the house.

    Disgusting. As the viewers I am hoping people who know and read about this online decided not to watch Big Brother this season and therefor make the rating suffer.

    If less people watching this show and demand for CBS to at least get better contestant next season, CBS will had at least listen to what viewers want.

    And CBS, grow a pair will you. Admit that you did terrible wrong for casting this season. And just kick them out. Instead of hiding behind that this show is about interactive strangers 24 hours in a house.

  • hcpoirot

    I will not watch the show for the rest of the season anymore and will only read the result here. Hoping the 3 worst people get kicked out quick.

  • WiggedOut

    I guarantee that if I were in that house of depraved lunatics, I would be one of the first voted out because there is NO WAY I could sit by and listen to someone joke about something so sensitive and serious!

    Do none of these people have the moral fortitude to stand up to these degenerates? Helen? Elissa? Candice? Really????

  • WiggedOut

    I think the 3 are terrible for not standing up to these losers and worse for forming alliances with the bigots. Personally I think BB should cancel the show and distribute the $$$ to charity!

  • pj

    I see that too, but at the same time, I am a little disappointed that Ian felt the need to address it. I pulled for him last year.
