A bunch of ‘Big Brother’ houseguests don’t like being under the same roof as Ian Terry … simply because he’s autistic.
Ian’s been pretty outspoken this season about being on the autism spectrum, but now his fellow houseguests Christmas Abbott, Dani Briones, Nicole Franzel and Memphis Garrett were caught on the live feeds yukking it up about Ian. They openly, and cruelly, mocked his self-soothing technique — rocking back and forth during conversations — and said it turns them off.
Dani starts it off by saying she can’t even look at Ian sometimes because his constant movement stresses her out … and Nicole agrees.
Christmas and Memphis join in the bullying and make things worse … Memphis describes Ian as the “red rum” of the house, a reference to “The Shining.”
The group shares a big ole laugh when Memphis claims he might have nightmares of Ian standing over his bed, rocking back and forth.
Unfortunately, this kind of bullying has become par for the course on ‘Big Brother’ — which has dealt with multiple racist and misogynist issues over the years.
Folks online aren’t letting these houseguests off the hook, though … calling them out for their “Mean Girls” like mocking of Ian.
