The other night on Jeopardy, host Alex Trebek…a good Canadian boy, took a shot at one of the contestants.
It happened during the portion of the show where he introduces each contestant and gets them to tell us a bit about them.
The contestant is librarian Susan Cole and she is involved with music called Nerd Core Hip Hop
Trebek started by saying – Your favorite type of music is something I’ve never heard of, but it doesn’t sound like fun,”
Trebek looked at her and then dropped the hammer
Obviously, Trebek was kidding, but some fans of Jeopardy were not amused and took to Twitter
Here are few of the upset Tweets
“I remember when Alex Trebek liked his job and was nice to the contestants. Now he hates everyone, poor guy,” one person tweeted.
“Imagine finally passing the Jeopardy test and becoming a contestant and showing up and then Trebek’s all like ‘LOOK AT THIS LOSER.’”
“Alex Trebek of #Jeopardy calling nerds “losers” is the STUPIDEST thing I’ve ever heard. Those ‘losers’ GIVE YOU A JOB.”
“Alex Trebek is 76 years old. He’s never been, what you call, ‘cool’. Think of how many people have heard about Nerdcore now. THAT’s cool.”
