Who knew that there would be such a “Big Brother” all about “Harry Potter” during down time? However, this is exactly what happened — and fan favorite Jeff was stuck front and center in the midst of everything.
Here’s what happened — Jeff, Jordan, and Kalia were in the midst of having a pretty intense discussion on J.K. Rowling when Jeff then made a comment about the character of Dumbledore being a pedifile. In truth, the character (who perished during book six) is actually gay. Since the comment first aired on the live feeds, a number of fans have blasted Jeff for being homophobic, and soon after this comment happened the feeds switched over to Brendon talking. Kalia seemed to be particularly slighted by the remarks, which is potentially damaging since Jeff and the other returning players were relying on her for some votes.
What’s your take on this — was Jeff being homophobic in calling Dumbledore a pedifile, or was he just speaking out of ignorance? In addition, do you think a comment like this will hurt his post-game reputation?
