Aaryn Gries was finally evicted from the Big Brother house Thursday night, and was promptly grilled by Julie Chen about her comments this summer.

Her explanation, in abridged form?

She's not racist, she's just Texan!

Aaryn Gries, of course, mocked Asians, African-Americans AND homosexuals this season. Frequently, and often seeming to take pleasure in doing so.

She had to know the reckoning was coming, but when she said "I did not mean to ever come off as racist," well, the audience laughed in her face.

And booed. A lot.

The longer explanation: "In Texas, we say things. Sometimes we joke and we don't mean it. I feel how bad it is being seen and how I've come across to people."

Yes, someone else was racist on Big Brother.

The dishonor this time belongs to Amanda Zuckerman, who showed her true colors (so to speak) after an altercation with competitor Candice Stewart.

Amanda, one of the most powerful people in the Big Brother house (and with the ego to go with it), had it out with Candice, one of the least powerful.

Their argument was built on a foundation of ongoing drama, but culminated in Amanda yelling at Candice: “That’s the Shaniqua coming out of you, I guess!”

As if the implications of that comment weren't obvious, or in case you thought she didn't care, Amanda followed that up with: “Am I racist now? I’m racist now.”

Who would have guessed Spencer Clawson joking about child porn would have competition for most cringe-worthy moment of the week on Big Brother?

If Spencer Clawson wasn't in danger of being fired from his day job over his role in the Big Brother racism scandal, he's probably sealed the deal now.

Clawson, for reasons unknown, went off on a (presumably facetious) rant about child pornography, stating, "I like to beat off to child porn." Seriously.

"Did I ever tell y'all about that? I love it," he continued telling his fellow Big Brother cast members. "Beating off to child porn is my favorite thing there is."

And Spencer Clawson kept going even further, adding, "I love it when they're around 3-4 years old. My favorite ones are when you can tell they're in a basement."

The Conway, Arkansas, Police Department did not find this amusing.

Aaryn Gries and her racist comments and cohorts have become the dominant narrative on this controversial, but compelling season of Big Brother.

In what's become a fascinating, voyeuristic look into overt racism in America, there is no editing or context to explain away Aaryn Gries and company.

The only question is how low they will go.

Sunday night, Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman started "talking black" at Candice Stewart and asking when her "blackness" is going to come out.

This was the latest of many examples that have nauseated viewers.

As the Big Brother racism scandal escalates on CBS, the network is issuing disclaimers and the women of The Talk are weighing in as well.

Julie Chen, who also host Big Brother, has been particularly vocal:

Viewer discretion is advised - for the first time in 15 years of Big Brother, after the show added a disclaimer prior to the airing of Sunday's episode.

In the wake of the ongoing Big Brother racism scandal, the network said:

"Big Brother is a reality show about a group of people who have no privacy 24/7. At times, houseguests may reveal prejudices and other beliefs that CBS does not condone."

Views or opinions expressed by a Houseguest are those of the individuals speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS. Viewer discretion is advised."

The disclaimer comes as Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman have been overheard using racial and homophobic slurs during the show's live feeds.

The Big Brother racism scandal came to a head last night as houseguest Aaryn Gries picked a fight with an African-American co-star with the cameras rolling.

Candice Stewart mixed it up with Gries, who mocked her in a stereotypical black voice, saying, "Whatchu gon do gurrl ... class girl? Where's yo class?"

Skip on ahead to the 2:00 mark of the video below:

Considering what we already know of Aaryn Gries from the live feeds, there's no explaining this away. She certainly comes off like a vile human being.

When Candice, who's African-American, took her to task, Aaryn's fellow racist GinaMarie Zimmerman, got in her face, saying, "You want the black to come out?"

David Girton, the Big Brother cast member who made out with Aaryn Gries the first week, is coming to her defense in the wake of the show's racism scandal.

Sort of.

Girton says he's still rooting for his on-screen flame despite the racist remarks emanating from the mouth of Aaryn Gries (among others) on the show.

Dave, of course, got the boot in the first week of the reality show's 15th season, and missed Aaryn's jaw dropping comments when he was in the house.

He was "shocked," he claims, when he watched back at home.

Spencer Clawson's mom is defending the Big Brother 15 cast member, claiming he's not a bigot or a racist ... he's just talking like one as part of his game.

Donna Clawson tells TMZ that her son was not showing his true colors when he praised Hitler and referred to a gay housemate as "Kermit the f**."

"Spencer really is a great guy," she said. "This is not a guy that’s a bigot or a racist."

"And he’s not that way at home. He's a great guy."

Why did Spencer Clawson say such horrible things on the show's live feeds then? Just trying to fit in with the racist, homophobic crowd and win the show, mom says.

Big Brother 15 has already been marred by racist, homophobic and misogynistic slurs from several cast members on the reality show's live feeds.

The CBS staple actually featured some of Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman's comments in a "Worst Of" compilation during Sunday's episode.

They've both lost their day jobs, unknowingly, while Spencer Clawson may be next. Host Julie Chen spoke out about the scandal Monday on The Talk:

"I have to be honest, it stung," said Chen of the racist and homophobic remarks. "Those things, in my opinion ... it felt mean-spirited. It felt ugly and it felt mean."

"When I first found out that Aaryn, who is a 22-year-old girl, made anti-gay, anti-black and anti-Asian comments, I have to be honest, the Asian ones hit me the most."

"It stung. I took it personally. I’m a human being."
