Celebrity Big Brother star quits after calling Perez Hilton a ‘faggot’

Nick Duffy January 18, 2015

R&B singer Alexander O’Neal has walked out of Celebrity Big Brother, after getting an official warning for calling Perez Hilton a “faggot”.

The singer and the gossip blogger had a tense confrontation last night, after Hilton seemed to deliberately provoke him.

O’Neal ranted: “I know exactly what you’re doing, you know exactly what you’d get in America. You’re taunting me. You coming over here, you following me.

“How could Big Brother let you do this? Oh wait, you ARE Big Brother. You not gonna say one word?

“You just gonna sit there will that silly ass faggot look on your face?”

The housemate was given an official warning by Big Brother for his use of ‘unacceptable’ language – but was not thrown out the house.

Ken Morley was removed from the house earlier this week after using the word “negro”.

Mr O’Neal later walked out the house today, becoming the third celebrity to leave.

A statement from Channel 5 said: “Alexander O’Neal has chosen to leave the Celebrity Big Brother House.”

Drag Race judge Michelle Visage also recently had a confrontation with Hilton, claiming he is “setting the LGBT community back” half a century”.

Visage told Big Brother: “[Perez] sets our community back fifty years. He’s an embarrassment, I do not want people judging the gay community on this ass.”

Celebrity Big Brother will continue tonight, at 9pm.
