First we learn that Aaryn
Gries was dropped by her modeling agency, Bella Petite
back at home in Texas because
of her racist and homophobic statements on the show.
So now Aaryn is at the house
still clueless about losing her job, &
her derogatory comments continue.
I also posted a few days ago about
Candice Stewart’s mom
being so angry with Aaryn
that her and her CHURCH plan to boycott.
Doesn’t seem like CBS’ little
disclaimer is working
the least little bit.
As if she couldn’t make her life
any harder though, students at
her college [Texas State University]
are requesting that Aaryn is
EXPELLED from the school.
Unluckily for them it isn’t working.
“I feel like she has tarnished the reputation of the university,”
- J.J. Franco [president of the school-funded University Ambassadors,
which recruits prospective students and provides campus tours]
Vice president of student affairs, JoAnne Smith, responded saying
no disciplinary actions will
be taken against Aaryn Gries.
Franco cited a provision in the school’s student handbook that states,
“persons who racially or sexually harass another person are
subject to disciplinary sanctions up to and including suspension from the university.”
Smith cited the First Amendment saying “It’s a stretch.”
Really Ms. Smith? REALLY?
She said the school
“values the diversity of people and ideas and the spirit of inclusiveness on the campus.”
Before the show Aaryn made a statement saying she
wouldn’t jepordize her values
and morals to win the game, & she doesn’t think
her parents would be
Her father, George Gries, declined
to comment about Aaryn
“she can speak for herself”.
“Even if she thinks these comments are made in good fun or made as a joke,
she’s still hurting peoples’ feelings,”
“And it’s not just people in the house but people in the entire country.”
