The fans of “Big Brother” are up in arms over comments made about rape and so is the family of one of the contestants. According to Bustle on Sunday, Frankie Grande made a seriously offensive comment, when he joked with other house guests about getting fellow house guest Victoria Rafaeli drunk and raping her. The shocking statement no doubt will be hashed out after the six remaining house guests finish the game.
The incident that has everyone upset was when five of the house guests were hanging out talking about having a drink. The talk went from having a drink to getting Victoria (the only member of the house who wasn’t present) a drink as well. The situation went downhill from there when Frankie Grande joked with other house guests about getting fellow house guest Victoria Rafaeli drunk and raping her.
The chatter around the conversation has everyone shocked, but viewers are more upset that the contestants didn’t recognize that the language wasn’t appropriate. It also showed a different side of Ariana Grande’s brother shocked the viewers of the show as this very friendly celebrity revealed a shocking side of him in front of the cameras.
Last season people were upset when the contestants used language that wasn’t necessary too. The difference between this time and last is Frankie is a star and this will impact his future in the entertainment business. Making comments about raping isn’t cool and there is little justification for doing it in any situation. Hopefully CBS will point this out and remind viewers that this behavior isn’t acceptable.
