One joke too far from Bear?


From a summer of watching him on Celebrity Big Brother, we know that Stephen Bear is a big fan of a joke.

From a summer of watching CBB and seeing him pull pranks and joke with his housemates, we also know that Bear’s humour isn’t necessarily shared by the masses. (Remember when he pushed a pie into Aubrey O’Day‘s face? NOT pretty….)

‘You’re a f**king horrible insensitive pig. Shame on you,’ reads an upset response from one, while others try to get him to consider the possibly traumatised younger people who may follow his page.

‘You should take this down or I’ll report you! This isn’t funny!’


As of yet, 25-year-old Bear has not responded to the criticism, and the photo is still visible on his page. However, we can’t imagine he’s too fussed – if there’s anyone who likes winding people up, it’s him!
