Another Big Brother 20 Contestant Is in an N-Word Scandal

JC Monduix said the n-word on the live feeds Tuesday night

Big Brother 20 is shaping up to be one of the most controversial seasons in series history, because the contestants just can't stop saying stupid stuff on the live feeds.

The latest controversy comes from JC Monduix, who is not black but said the n-word on Tuesday night, according to Us Weekly.

Monduix, who is 4'8", was asked by fellow houseguest Bayleigh Dayton if he's a dwarf. He said no, "I'm just a short guy," and then Dayton asked him "is there a difference between a midget and a dwarf?"

Monduix tried to explain that "midget" is an offensive slur, but then used offensive slurs as examples. "'Midget' is like saying 'gay' and 'f----t' or, like, 'n---a' and 'black,'" he said to Dayton, who is black.

Dayton was horrified, and said. "You're not allowed to say that. Don't do that again. That was, like, out of control."

He didn't have to use that language to make his point, you know? But thinking and speaking are not Monduix's strong suits, as his claim that only 0.2 percent of people in the world are left-handed during Sunday's episode can attest.

This is the second time Monduix has come under fire for his behavior in the house; earlier this month he was accused of sexual harassment by viewers when he tried to touch other houseguests' genitals with an ice cream scooper.

And this is the third instance of racially insensitive language being used during Big Brother 20. Rachel Swindler and Angela Rummans compared their tanned skin to a black person's, with Rummans describing her skin tone as "ghetto." After this incident, CBS warned that there would be "future consequences" for continued offensive behavior. The next day, Kaitlyn Herman used the n-word while quoting a Drake song. She remains in the house.

It remains to be seen if Monduix will face consequences for his offensive comment. He remains in the house as of Wednesday afternoon.

Big Brother 20 airs Sundays and Wednesdays at 8/7c on and Thursdays at 9/8c on CBS.
