‘Metrosexual cowboy’ contestant with alleged homophobic past competing on Big Brother

The annual CBS summer reality competition, Big Brother, returned to the air this week and one of its contestants allegedly posted a homophobic and racist rant on Instagram.

Caleb Reynolds, a self-described ‘metrosexual cowboy’ from Kentucky, reportedly wrote on Instagram after the 2012 reelection of US President Barack Obama: ‘You believe in murder? You agree with fags? I guess so but I don’t agree with murdering a innocent baby which he clearly doesn’t mind. Nothin has changed in these last four years. Your just a democrat that wants that Muslim monkey in office. I’m done with you, your dismissed.’

The post has since been deleted but was captured on screengrabs.

The show, now in its 16th season, faced a storm of controversy last summer when several of its contestants made homophobic and racist comments on the air.

Reynolds is one of 16 contestants vying for a first prize of $500,000. The money goes to the houseguest who can survive the longest in the house without being evicted.
