Imagine if you will, a CBS boardroom in which execs, writers, producers, and support staff sit around and discuss the latest taping of "Big Brother", a program on which house guest Adam Jasinski discusses what it is he'll so generously do with the winnings should he ultimately win the contest. On that episode, Adam, who claims to work for an "autism foundation", said he would spend his winnings on a hair salon for people with developmental disabilities
"so retards can get it together and get their hair done."
Supposedly his partner, Sheila, told him: "Don't call them that."
Adam responded: "Disabled kids. I can call them whatever I want. I work with them all day, OK?"
Out of that CBS "boardroom" came this statement, which is no surprise considering
"Big Brother" also has been condemned for contestants’ remarks on incest, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation. Some contestants have been removed following incidents that were deemed violent or racist.
