“Big Brother” star Spencer Clawson is not a Hitler-loving bigot — he’s just saying terrible things so his racist friends in the house will like him … so says Spencer’s mother.
TMZ spoke with Donna Clawson … who insists her son wasn’t showing his true colors when “BB” cameras caught him praising Hitler and referring to a gay housemate as “Kermit the f**.”
“Spencer really is a great guy,” she tells us … “This is not a guy that’s a bigot or a racist. And he’s not that way at home. He’s a great guy.”
So why would Spencer say such horrible things? Mama Clawson says her son is just trying to fit in with the racist, homophobic people in the house … because it’s the only way he can win the reality show.
“If you’re in a group, you go along with the group talk and that is what is happening with him.”
She adds, “This is a reality show. The purpose of the show is scheming behind each other’s backs.”
“Spencer might not be perfect but he’s my son. All those kids are somebody’s child. He’s a good guy.”
