There are many Big Brother 21 fans who aren’t happy with how things are already playing out in the house on the live feeds. Many believe that the minorities in the house are unfairly being targeted. Now there is a petition to get Jack Matthews ejected. Find out why fans want Matthews out of the house and more.
Fans previously accused Jackson Michie of being racist for targeting minorities in the house
Some people were already suspicious of some of the houseguests for their choices. Jackson Michie convinced the majority of the cast to give him the title of Camp Director. He then had to banish four houseguests who will compete to come back.
Michie nominated Cliff Hogg III, Kemi Fakunle, Jessica Milagros, and David Alexander. Many noted that he included the two Black houseguests and a Latina woman in his lists. Alexander was the one who lost the challenge and was evicted.
However, Julie Chen teased that fans will see him again. “David may be out of the game but you haven’t seen the last of him. Something that has never happened before on Big Brother will happen live next Wednesday,” she said.
Fans believed Michie was targetting the minorities. He gained even more power in the first week by getting an alliance with a large number of people in the house. That alliance includes Jack Matthews who is at the center of a petition made by fans.
Fans created a petition to get Jack Matthews off the show
Some fans are getting together to do something about Jack Matthews. There is now a petition to get him removed from the show.
“Jack Matthews has said numerous racist things and has been very aggressive towards the only black woman in the Big Brother house, including saying he wants to ‘stomp a mud hole through her chest.’ He needs to be expelled for Kemi’s safety and to show that it’s not okay to be racist in 2019, especially on tv,” reads the description of the petition.
The petition was created on July 1, and it has over 300 signatures 12 hours after its creation. Big Brother has “ejected” houseguests before for breaking some kind of rule.
Justin Sebik from Season 2 was removed for violent behavior like smashing glass bottles. Scott Weintraub from Season 4 was removed after throwing chairs in the house. Chima Simone from Season 11 was removed for not listening to instructions and not putting on her microphone. Willie Hantz from Season 14 was removed after getting into a physical altercation with Joe Arvin.
Many are tweeting about turning against Matthews
The houseguest had a strong start on the show. His fellow houseguests compared him to Jason Momoa due to his looks, and fans tweeted about loving him. Many fans who are watching the live feeds are now tweeting about having a different reaction to the competitor.
The actual show hasn’t shown Matthews’ comments. Time will tell if they will be shown and if the show will address the petition.
