Watch: 'Big Brother 19' Player Comes Under Fire for 'Tranny' Comments

Wednesday Jul 5, 2017

A houseguest on the currently-airing "Big Brother 19" is getting some online flack over comments he made about transgender people.

A YouTube user uploaded a 40-second video lifted from the reality show's live feeds, showing Cody Nickson, a 32-year-old construction sales rep and Marine vet, talking with fellow contestant Jessica Graf. The clip starts mid-conversation, where the two are seen discussing tucking.

"How does one tape his dick down?" Cody asks Jessica.

"I don't know. Isn't that at thing?" she responds.

"For trannies, I guess," Cody says, sparking Jessica to giggle and cover his mouth.

"Do you really think I could give a shit that like .0000001 percent of the population is fucking trannies," Cody says. "I don't give a fuck."

"I promise you they're not expecting me to really fucking sympathize with their psychological cause," he adds.

"Oh lord," Jessica says.

In another clip, posted by the same user, Jessica mentions their conversation from earlier in the day, this time in front of other "Big Brother 19" players.

"What you said this morning wasn't that great either," she says.

"What? Tranny? I don't give a shit," Cody responds.

After Jessica laughs, Cody adds: "Do you really think they're going to come at a Marine Crops infantryman for fucking saying the word 'tranny'?"

Unsurprisingly, "Big Brother" Twitter fans weren't having it.

"Big Brother 17" player Audrey Middleton, the show's first openly trans contestant, responded to Cody's remarks in a Tweet.

Cody's remarks come a few seasons after the highly controversial "Big Brother 15" where a number of houseguests were heard spewing racist, anti-gay and misogynistic remarks, sparking CBS to put a disclaimer before airing episodes.

The latest incident also comes after "Survivor: Game Changers" made national news when openly gay player Jeff Varner outed fellow castaway Zeke Smith as transgender.
