“Big Brother” contestant Spencer Clawson has learned the hard way that you never… ever joke about child pornography.

A video clip from this week shows Mr. Clawson grabbing a microphone and going on a bizarre tangent about how he’s sexually attracted to child porn.

“I like to [sexual expletive] to child porn. Did I ever tell y’all about that? I love it. … Child porn is my favorite thing there is,” he said, gaining uncomfortable laughs from his housemates. “My favorite ones are when you can tell they’re in a basement.”

But police in Mr. Clawson’s hometown of Conway, Ark., weren’t laughing.

“The Conway Police Department was alerted to comments made,” Chief AJ Gary from the Conway Police Department told TMZ. “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.”

According to the Associated Press, Mr. Clawson was reportedly mocking a fellow contestant when he made the remarks.

CBS issued a statement saying it found “the statements made by Spencer on the live Internet feed to be offensive,” adding that comments by houseguests “are those of the individual[s] speaking, and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”

“Big Brother” is a CBS reality show where contestants live in a house isolated from the outside world. A contestant must survive periodic evictions and be the last housemate or houseguest remaining in the compound by the series’ conclusion.
