Big Brother 21 fans are fuming over the fact Jackson Michie was allegedly arrested for domestic assault and CBS still cast him on the show.
Michie has become one of the most hated Big Brother houseguests ever. His racist remarks and entitled southern boy charm have made him enemy number one for the fans this summer.
An arrest report is making the rounds on social media, igniting further disgust for Michie, as well as CBS who allowed a racist abuser to be on the reality TV show.

Newsweek is reporting purported arrest record is only from last year too. The controversial houseguest was arrested and charged with a count of domestic assault, as well as some other charges.
There are no details surrounding the arrest, including whether or not Michie was ever officially charged with a crime. Newsweek reached out to the Williamson County Sherriff’s Office where the arrest took place but never received a response.
Former Big Brother houseguest Evil Dick was the one who first shared Michie’s arrest on social media. Neither CBS nor Michie’s family have commented on the report that has now gone viral on social media.
The name on the report is Jackson Michie. However, it has not been proven that it is 100% the same guy that is inside the Big Brother house right now.
One Reddit thread claims Michie shared details of his arrest with his first in house showmance, Kathryn Dunn.
Some fans though have done some digging, and the consensus it is him, and they are not happy he is on the summer show. Others believe it is all part of disgruntle fans attempt to shame Michie.
