Former Jeopardy! contestants are calling for an apology from the present after a participant allegedly flashed a ‘white energy’ image whereas on air.
“A current contestant has brought on concern amongst ‘Jeopardy!’ viewers for 2 separate occurrences, and we as former contestants really feel the necessity to converse out in opposition to the messaging that these selections communicated — both deliberately or unintentionally — by the contestant Kelly Donohue and, implicitly by affiliation, the producers of ‘Jeopardy!'” they wrote in a letter printed to Medium.
Donohue flashed an “okay” image throughout his chest — a extensively used image used amongst proper wing extremists and white supremacist teams.
The letter then lists a number of different causes they imagine he was linked to a white supremacist group.
“We all know that contestants signal morals and ethics-related agreements once they put together to look on the present, and we’d ask the manufacturing group to judge this example inside that framework,” the letter concluded. “Lastly, we hope to see adjustments made in order that future errors of this magnitude by no means make it on air.”
Jeopardy! is but to reply.
