A Vine of Big Brother 17's Clay Honeycutt and Shelli Poole is quickly going viral for a super-embarrassing reason.
The clip shows the pair snuggling and chatting while Clay tells Shelli about his friends back home. Clay starts talking about one friend, in particular, and it all starts going downhill.
"He is, like, the token black guy," Clay says, to which Shelli responds, "Aww, I love those!"
That's all the Vine shows, but later in the conversation, Shelli asks if this friend is good looking and Clay tells her, "He's a good looking black guy."
For obvious reasons, Twitter is blowing up over the pair's casually racist small talk.
There is absolutely NO context where Clay's "token black guy" comment & Shelli's response "Oh I love those" is acceptable. #BB17 NONE!— Vafunghoul (@Vafunghoul) August 5, 2015
So we're clear, no poc/minority wants to be called a token, but the more telling part was Clay specifying "good looking black guy" #BB17— Bianca Inez (@Bianca_Inez) August 5, 2015
