Matthews has made many fans angry with his actions on live feeds. Most of his comments have not yet been seen in the show.
A remark that received much attention is what he said about Kemi Fakunle. Fans have filed a petition to remove him from the competition.
“Jack Matthews has said countless racist things and has been very aggressive towards the only black woman in the Big Brother house, including that he” wants to smash a mud hole in her chest. ” He must be deported for Kemi’s safety and show that it is not okay to be racist in 2019, especially on TV, ”read the petition.
More recently, most of the house began to turn against Wang. When a group of them started talking about her, Tommy Bracco heard “the evidence is in the pudding.” Matthews piled up by saying “in the rice pudding”. This brought many fans back to talking about racism in the house.
Producers responded to the fan backlash in a joint statement
Fans and stars from past seasons were not afraid to show their anger on social media and through petitions about racism. Producers responded via a joint statement.
“BIG BROTHER is a multi-platform reality competition show about a group of people who live in a house for several months without contact from the outside world. The audience is able to watch the show during the multiple weekly broadcasts and on the 24/7 live, online stream, which captures raw content of the unfiltered moments of the participants in the house, “read the statement, People said.
Then it went on to say, “Sometimes the house guests say things that we don’t approve of. We share viewers’ concerns about inappropriate behavior and offensive comments, and producers have addressed specific incidents with the relevant Houseguests. However, there is absolutely no truth that the casting of the show is racially motivated, that the behavior of the Houseguests is predetermined or that the outcome is controlled in any way. “
Wang said she has a lot of respect for Matthews
Many fans would understand if Wang had no kind words for Matthews after his comment. However, she reacts very differently.
“I was made aware of it, but I personally did not see anything of the show for myself,” explained roommate Entertainment Weekly. “And I think this is probably something Jack and I can talk about after this show. Because I was deported and things like that, I really felt like putting myself in this own boat. “
She continued: ‘So I have a lot of respect for Jack. I know that everyone in that house is all good people. I love everyone and this is a game and we have many hotheads in a room and we are fun and it is fun. And I don’t regret the experiences and I don’t regret the connections I made. “
Everything between this subject is not over yet. She said she wanted to see him make the comment for herself. “Yes, I think so. I should definitely discuss it with him and see what his intentions were that he said that.”
Matthews is still in the game, although many fans rooted against them. Fans will have to wait and see if Wang has more to say after watching the show.
