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."
