Night two of the Big Brother season 21 premiere aired Wednesday night and caused a lot of negative social media buzz when contestant David Alexander was banished from the house before the first Head of Household competition even took place.
The first-ever Big Brother camp director, named Jackson Michie, had to choose four contestants to banish from the house and, while Michie seemed to have his own competition-related reasons for picking Cliff Hogg III, Kemi Fakunle, Jessica Milagros and Alexander, Twitter had another opinion.
One person tweeted:
Jackson taking the two black houseguests, the plus sized Latina woman and the old guy? LMAO who is shocked #bb21— emily (@roussohoh) June 27, 2019
While others posted:
Banishing the only 2 black houseguests, the eldest houseguest, and the only plus size houseguest during the first night.... makes you look so bad. I really hope Jackson is a prejury boot. Casting needs more open minded Southern men. Robyn needs to do better. This aint it. #BB21— V E L E N A #BB21 (@VelenaWWE) June 27, 2019
This episode HIGHLIGHTS what I've been saying for years. BB casting needs to be even across the board.— Brandon Fluellen (@BMFluellen1) June 27, 2019

In the diary room, Alexander told the audience, "The reason I wanted to win, the reason I wanted to compete and be on this show, I want to be the first, like, black person to win Big Brother. I wanted to represent African-American culture in a different light. I wanted to show that. I wanted to show it."
Alexander's confession had Twitter even more upset about his too-soon eviction.
David’s eviction shows the importance of REAL diversity and variety. One black male houseguest is not enough. Especially when I can count a few repeat types of white houseguests. #BB21— 🦋++ (@lyricglow) June 27, 2019
Fortunately, this may not be the last time we see Alexander, as host Julie Chen Moonves told him that he's only out of the house "for now."
