The Big Brother racism scandal reached new heights in their most recent episode, after houseguest Aaryn Gries got into a shouting match with an African-American co-star.

Candice Stewart addressed Gries and her recent racist remarks to which Gries shot back in a degrading and stereotypical black voice, saying, "Whatchu gon do gurrl ... class girl? Where's yo class?"

Gries' was aided by her friend Gina Marie Zimmerman who defended Gries by saying, "You want the black to come out?"

Big Brother fans have expressed outrage after hearing the racist, offensive comments during the last few episodes. Host Julie Chen recently stated that she, too, was offended by the comments.

"Personally, I was offended," Chen told TMZ. "I was offended by all the comments – the anti-gay, the anti-black, but especially the anti-Asian ones … for obvious reasons. I'm hopeful she'll change her view of the world."

There was also shock when comments were caught on tape via the show's live feeds and shown on Sunday night's episode. GinaMarie and Aaryn were discussing the various houseguests when the first series of racist comments were made.

Aaryn called one of the contestants a homophobic slur and told Helen, an Asian-American woman, to "shut up and go make some rice." She also cautioned a friend to "be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that b----" when talking about Candice, an African-American woman.

Aaryn and GinaMarie are still inside the house, isolated from the rest of the world, and are clueless to the fact that they have both been fired from their real jobs as a result of their comments.

"Big Brother is a reality show about watching 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 several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive," CBS executives told BuzzFeed.
