Pussycat. An offensive term for a gay man. Erm no I don't think so Frankie. #CBB — Hirrell (@Hirrell) August 7, 2016
Oh frankie behave!! Don't try n say pussy cat is anyway homophobic #CBB #cbbuk — PAULY•C (@paulchambers81) August 7, 2016While viewers might have been split on whether the term 'pussycat' can indeed be considered homophobic, some questioned whether Bear would have used the same term to describe any of his fellow straight male housemates.
i don't get people who think that frankie was pulling the 'gay card'. would bear call lewis,heavy,james or ricky 'pussycat'? no. #cbb — Pot noodle (@4PotNoodle) August 8, 2016Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 10pm on Channel 5.
