'Big Brother' 2015: Evicted Contestant Simon Gross Speaks Out Over #AbusedBySimonGross Hashtag

Big Brother’ evictee Simon Gross has spoken out about the #AbusedBySimonGross hashtag that has been circulating on Twitter.


The hashtag has now been shared on social media by a number of different actors and workers from other areas from the entertainment industry, who allege that Simon behaved unprofessionally when they worked with his production company. Others claim they were never paid for their work.

Following his shock eviction from the ‘BB’ residency on Tuesday night - which came just over an hour after he entered the house - he has now laughed off the criticism, insisting that the events they’re referring to took place over a decade ago.
