*”Big Brother” fans watching the live feed Wednesday night took to social media in droves after catching houseguest Memphis Garrett dropping the n-word in reference to a Black housemate, and a change.org petition to get him tossed is already afoot.
Memphis was speaking to housemate Cody Calafiore about David Alexander, one of four African Americans cast in the current All-Star season. (BTW: All four were nominated for eviction by white co-stars in back to back weeks: Da’Vonne Rogers against Bayleigh Dayton two weeks ago and this week’s original nominees David and Kevin Campbell, who is half Black, half Japanese.)
During Memphis’s conversation with Cody, many live feed viewers said they heard Memphis say, “Dude, David’s a n****r” before getting a hand signal from Cody to stop talking. A second camera angle showed Memphis’ reaction to Cody’s hand, appearing that he realized his mistake.

Here’s the change.org petition from fan Sophia Cornelius to get Memphis removed from the CBS reality series. It reads:
Memphis Garrett, a contestant on Big Brother: All-Stars has said and done racially charged things to another contestant on the show, David Alexandar. He called referred to him as “boy” in a demeaning way and put him on slop to get him to “blow up” and act crazy. This is disgusting and there are no excuses for this. At. All.
