Trayvon Martin‘s parents breaks their silence since the George Zimmerman verdict by chatting with the media on several different networks. They expressed feelings of shock and disgust after learning of the verdict. They wished that the jurors and public got a chance to know their son Trayvon Martin as a loving kid and human being. They are praying for the strength to forgive as parents and feel that Zimmerman’s family are inauthentic.

The honchos at CBS told TMZ that they were OFFENDED by several racist and homophobic comments made by the current “Big Brother” houseguests.

Check it out after the break!

The houseguests have been under fire for the following comments:

— GinaMarie referred to welfare as “n**ger insurance”

— Aaryn called gay contestant Andy a “queer.”

— Spencer referred to Andy as “Kermit the F**” … and praised Hitler as a gifted speaker.

CBS released a statement:

“We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive.”

The Eye points out that 24/7 live programming can sometimes reveal some bad things about people:

“At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone.”

There have been rumors that CBS will nix the offending cast members.  Right now those are just rumors.

Have we reached a point in society where we reward people for behaving badly?  Does being a reality star give one license to say and act however they choose?  Or are reality stars simply placed in a lane where their opinions are rewarded and welcomed regardless of how offensive or politically incorrect?

CBS Picks Up Eddie Murphy “Beverly Hills Cop” Show

CBS is giving the greenlight to a pilot production of “Beverly Hills Cop.” The project, a joint venture between Eddie Murphy and writer Shawn Ryan of “The Shield” fame, is being billed as a sequel of sorts to Murphy’s big screen trilogy.

According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” the TV project will revolve around Aaron Foley, son of Murphy’s Axel Foley character from the movies.

 

Murphy is expected to reprise his role as Axel in the pilot and if it’s picked up as a series.

 
Should it go to series, CBS will fold the Foleys into its lineup of hourlong crime procedurals which includes “CSI,” “NCIS” and the upcoming Sherlock Holmes series “Elementary.”
