Adding to that, @yummy_leftovers mentioned: “Not surprised @CBSBigBrother is hiding Kyle and the silent majority’s micro aggressions against the POC. Nobody cares about the POC experience because we are seen [as] less than.”

In a since deleted tweet, Pierzina wrote: “He only lasts 10 seconds, […], I’ve seen proof of his racism and is 29 and still lives with his parents. Cancel this guy already.”
Pierzina mentioned she had to return and delete the tweet because it contained an incorrect accusation that he had beforehand used “the N word.” After admitting her mistake, she mentioned she was “still over Kyle.”
