Celebrity Big Brother viewers were really p*ssed off by one hateful conversation last night

Big Brother is synonymous with controversy but this time, they’ve gone a bit too far and massively offended a large portion of their viewers.

As the “celebrities” wandered about the house last night, Renee Graziano could be heard uttering some questionable comments about homosexuality saying:

"I think it’s beautiful because it’s who you are and I think it’s natural," but then following it with:

"But I think today in society, I think they kind of force things on people and confuse you.”

Christopher Biggins, a very outspoken gay man then chimed in saying “"The worst type I’m afraid to say are the bisexuals. What it is is people not wanting to admit they’re gay."

Renee, in all her ignorance then exclaimed: "You have to pick a team!"

As the pair laughed, Twitter went into meltdown with users quick to highlight biphobia and the prejudice of the conversation.

This is not the first time Biggins has made biphobic comments.

In an interview with The Big Issue in 2014 the panto star said:

“I think the people who fear homosexuality most are the ones who could be gay. The world is full of bisexuals because that’s the way they want to do it. What do they do? They ruin a woman’s life.”

“It’s so wrong, because you’re not owning up to what you are. You lead a double life so how can you be a real person?”

Biggins comments perpetuate myths about the bisexual community that are damaging and offensive. If you want to read something much more interesting, check out this piece, written by our stunningly talent bro at JOE.co.uk.
