Warning: The following story contains sensitive language

The controversy surrounding the current season of "Big Brother" seems to keep growing. The show has already been forced to address racist comments made by houseguests. Viewers who also follow the live feeds have also heard a number of misogynistic and homophobic comments as well.

Now, houseguest Spencer Clawson has taken things to a whole new level. Spencer was caught on the feeds Monday (August 5) joking, "I like to beat off to child porn. Did I ever tell y'all about that? I love it. Beating off to child porn is my favorite thing there is."

As if that's not disgusting enough, he continues, "I love it when they're f***ing around three or four years old ... My favorite's when you can tell they're filmed in a basement somewhere in Minnesota."

While Spencer thought he was a comedic genius, police in the Arkansas town he lives in don't see it that way. TMZ reports that the police department in Conway, Ark. looked into the matter. "The Conway Police Department was alerted to comments made," Police Chief AJ Gary says. "Due to the nature of the comments, our department moved quickly to look into the matter. At this time we haven't found that any criminal act was committed."

Spencer's employer, Union Pacific, released the following statement about the matter:

Due to the volume of feedback Union Pacific has received from the public about Spencer Clawson's August 5 comments on the CBS reality show Big Brother 15, the company wants to reiterate that it has taken all the action it can under the Collective Bargaining Agreement until Mr. Clawson is released from the show. Mr. Clawson took an unpaid leave of absence to participate on Big Brother 15. Union Pacific has notified law enforcement of Mr. Clawson's August 5 comments.

As per the rules of the house, Spencer and the other houseguests have no idea what is happening in the outside world. So the probe will be a nice little surprise to him when his time on the show comes to an end.
