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."

Spencer Clawson is the latest Big Brother 15 cast member to face the real world fallout from racist and homophobic slurs made on the show's live feeds.

Union Pacific railroad, which employs him as a conductor, says:

"The values represented by Spencer Clawson's comments during the Big Brother show do not at all align with Union Pacific's values."

"Mr. Clawson is on unpaid leave of absence while participating on Big Brother. Union Pacific does not condone his comments."

It seems unlikely that he'll be paid by them again after this.

Rachel Reilly, the winner of Big Brother 13, is taking the current cast to task for the racist and homophobic comments captured on the show's live feeds.

The two-time BB contestant, who met husband Brendon Villegas on the show and also appeared on The Amazing Race, says she's "disgusted."

"It makes me sick to my stomach," she adds.

"We think it's vile and disgusting and are completely horrified that people even think such hateful things," the couple added of the controversy.

"As former houseguests we understand people turn on each other ... but the offensive things that Aaryn, GinaMarie, Katlin, Spencer and Jeremy say disgust us, and make us sick."

Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman have already been fired from their day jobs over their behind-the-scenes comments ... not that they know about it.

Rachel and Brendon married last fall. Her sister Elissa is among the Big Brother 15 cast (obviously), but is not implicated in the current scandal.

Big Brother contestant GinaMarie Zimmerman has already been fired from her job as pageant coordinator for East Coast USA Pageant, Inc.

Both she and Aaryn Gries have been let go from their day jobs in the last 48 hours due to their use of racial and gay slurs on the BB15 live feeds.

The reality show is edited before it appears on CBS, but the feeds airing online 24/7 captured some serious racial and gay slurs used by both women.

About fellow contestants, no less.

Zimmerman had been employed for the past five years, but East Coast USA Pageant was "left in disbelief and shock" at her "acts of hate and racism."

Aaryn Gries has already been let go by her modeling agency after dropping racist and homophobic slurs on the live feeds of CBS' Big Brother 15.

Gries referred to gay Big Brother cast member as a "queer," and said that an Asian-American co-star should just "shut up and go and make some rice."

That's not even all. When referring to an African-American contestant, Aaryn said "Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that b!tch."

Zephyr Talent in Austin, Tex., says they've seen enough. She's gone. Guess no amount of hot bikini photos are worth keeping such a person on their roster.
