The Knucklehead of the Day – Reality TV Douchebag Edition

Today’s winner is Adam Jasinski, one of the houseguest’s on CBS’s Big Brother 9. Adam claims to be the PR Manager for the United Autism Foundation, which turns out to be very much in doubt. Anyway Adam calls the little autistic children he works so hard helping “retards,” which he reasons he can because he just works so hard for them. See the stupidity via video:

Several outraged individuals have checked into the charity he supposedly works for and the donations he’s soliciting in their name. It’s all very shady and Adam and some unknown webtech may be committing fraud. [This should raise big red flags]

CBS has not responded to our request for comment. CBS supposedly does background checks on its contestants, a have even re-investigated past contestants after they entered the house. In 2000 CBS said that ”we and the producers of ‘Big Brother’ will not tolerate nor permit any hate speech on the program.”

Interestingly the Don Imus (terminated from CBS radio for his “nappy headed ho’s” remark) is a fairly strong advocate for autism and the man (Les Moonves) who fired him from CBS’s girlfriend (Julie Chen) hosts Big Brother. I’m guessing that might figure out a way to throw a few bombs CBS’s way as this controversy continues…
