‘Wheel of Fortune’ fans weren’t laughing after Pat Sajak mocks contestant’s lisp
Long-time Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak recently came under fire from fans for allegedly making condescending jokes against attendees. And during the player introductions on Monday's episode, he insulted a few more fans with his questionable comedy.
Candidate Chris Brimble made a pretty good television appearance in every way. Although he didn't advance to the bonus puzzle, he took home $ 12,250 and appeared to be having a good time. However, some fans were upset because Sajak mimicked the participant's lisp.
Surprised viewers took to Twitter to share their dismay and disappointment at the host's perceived mockery of the attendee. One disgruntled viewer tweeted, "Thank you for making fun of people lisping on tonight's show, you arrogant, overpaid fool - Pat Sajak. Stop it now. Maybe you'd understand if you grew up with a speech impediment."
