Watching the Showtime 2 version of the Big Brother 11 live feeds during the live blog/chat, we witnessed some live: waitress Jordan Lloyd used a derogatory word for gay people, offending Michele, who recently came out as bisexual.
Talking to her allies in the back yard and upset about the eviction of Braden, Jordan said Jessie is “the fag of America.” Michele walked away, asking her not to use that word, because it offended her, but insisting she’s not mad. There was some brief discussion about Michele’s bisexuality, and someone said something about Michele being married to a man, apparently not quite grasping the idea of bisexuality.
Jordan justified her comment, later saying, “I always say fag and I always say gay.” Do you want a medal, you idiot? Also during that conversation, Jeff volunteered to sleep in the same bed as Kevin, I think, apparently to prove how okay he is with gay people, despite the way he freely uses anti-gay language.
Ironically, at about that same time as Jordan said that, a producer’s voice could be heard saying “Lydia: stop that.” Yes, Lydia, stop whatever you’re doing so we don’t have to interrupt Jordan’s homophobia.
There is some good news: About an hour later, Jordan said, “Sorry for saying ‘fag.’ I didn’t mean to offend you. I say gay a lot. I need to work on that.”
