Spencer Clawson jokes about child porn on 'Big Brother,' attracts police attention

The words "the camera is on" seems to be something that "Big Brother" contestants seem to have trouble remembering. On Wednesday, TMZ reported that a member of the current "Big Brother" cast is under investigation after joking about child porn -- not a humorous subject -- on air.

The incident can be seen in a clip from this week's episode (embedded). In it, Spencer Clawson grabbed the microphone fellow houseguest McCrae Olson was wearing. While pretending to be Olson, Clawson riffs about child porn, saying,
I like to beat off to child porn. Did I ever tell y'all about that? I love it. Beating off to child porn is my favorite thing there is. I love it when they're around three or four years old. My favorite ones are when you can tell they're in a basement.
Clawson was speaking with Andy Herren and Amanda Zuckerman. Both looked uncomfortable, and Andy Herren eventually said, "Oh God" before changing the subject.

Spencer Clawson's hometown police in Arkansas took note, whether tipped off or by watching the show themselves. Chief A.J. Gary from the Conway Police Department in Arkansas said:
The Conway Police Department was alerted to comments made. 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.
That being said, it should be obvious: As before, with racist comments that have hammered the series this season, don't joke about child porn.
