During the POV competition, the beloved Zingbot was referred to as “President Zingbot” and the houseguests were tasked with hiding folders with incriminating evidence and pictures inside. The competition was also set at a resort called “Zing-a-Lago,” inspired by President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, and the houseguests were dressed as President Zingbot’s “Zing Force,” a nod to Trump’s proposed separate military department, Space Force.
Viewers of course took to Twitter to call out Big Brother. One person tweeted:
Hey @realDonaldTrump u should watch tonight’s episode of Big Brother. Zingbot came back and gave u the biggest zing in the world, modeling hide-n-go veto after ur administration. Zing-a-lago, incriminating files, Zingforce and so much more was there! Very insightful🤗😉😘 #bb20

This zigbot POV is so perfect based on yesterday’s Trump events, I’m wondering if Big Brother has been colluding with the investigation. #bb20

However, not everyone supported the shade. In fact, some criticized Big Brother with tweets like:
The #Zingbot POV comp was in poor taste and inappropriate. Trump is not a laughing matter. Trivializing his presidency makes @CBSBigBrother irresponsible and careless. This season has been atrocious and the gaslighting gameplay ugly #resist

@CBSBigBrother tired of you bringing “politics” into this show, “celebrity” BB was bad enough. The premise of the veto comp tonight wouldn’t have happened before. I’m done. I’m not watching for unsubtle jabs at the president. Just show the game, leave Trump out of it.

Still, at the end of the day, it is just a game and, for now, only on Big Brother will we get to see someone eliminated after a photo of them trading money for votes is exposed.
