More insensitive remarks on CBS ‘Big Brother’ show
NEW YORK – A run of ethnically insensitive remarks has continued during filming for the CBS reality TV show “Big Brother,” raising questions about whether the network should be doing more to police it.
During the past week one of the show’s cast members made comments that could be seen as insulting to blacks, Puerto Ricans and Koreans. The remarks haven’t been seen on television. They were made during the show’s 24-hour Internet feed and were captured in compilations available online.
CBS Corp. chief executive Leslie Moonves (MOON’-vehz) said last week he believed the show’s controversial season was being handled appropriately.
But one critical blogger says she worries about the impact of the language on teenage followers.
