Big Brother All-Stars 2 is all done on CBS, and slowly but surely, this past season's houseguests are doling out the details about some of the house drama that they hadn't been able to speak much about previously. Someone who has been particularly vocal about some of the injustices that happened in the house is Kaysar Ridha, who has slammed his fellow houseguests who mocked Ian Terry's autism in a recent interview.
Kaysar Ridha spoke to former Big Brother player James Rhine about the situation, and he was none too happy about the things he saw occur when he was both in and outside the game. When it comes any and all excuses that other houseguests may offer for their behavior in the house, Kaysar said that from his perspective, there are no excuses.
Kaysar Ridha essentially stated that, whether Memphis Garrett, Dani Briones, or others were aware of Ian Terry's condition, they should have still had the decency to approach him rather than mock him for it behind his back. While a bulk of The Committee's members bonded in their repeated teasing of Ian, it's more than fair to say the mockery was in no way related to the game, and was more a personal attack on his personality that lacked proper understanding and empathy.
Kaysar Ridha went on to say he tried to squash all the negative talk about Ian when he was in the house, but also that he tried to encourage Ian to try a different response other than just allowing it to happen merely to fit in with other houseguests. Kaysar talked about one incident in particular in which he felt like others were laughing more at Ian than with him.
It's worth mentioning that a large chunk of this is Kaysar Ridha's personal opinion of the situation, and doesn't speak much to Ian Terry's own perspective. Memphis Garrett, along with other houseguests, have apologized to anyone offended by what was said, but Memphis added that he and Ian have a great relationship now. Ian hasn't spoken much about the issue personally, so it's unclear whether or not he appreciated Kaysar's protection, or if he felt it was necessary in the first place.
