Okay, seriously. No, no, no. I mean seriously, for real. Alex Trebek is correcting a contestant for mispronouncing “gangsta” — and then took his money away.
question answer involved one of those weird deals where the correct response is a mashup. In this case: “A song from Coolio from “Dangerous Minds” goes back in time to become a 1667 John Milton Classic.”
And then . . . this happened:
Ah, so much to unpack:
- The judges overturned Trebek’s ruling . . . but WHO CAUGHT THAT? I mean which cultural warrior had to go tap somebody on the shoulder and say . . . “it’s gang-STA, not gang-STER?”
- Was anyone at home saying, “He mispronounced it?”
- And is this guy now gonna be carrying a tiki torch at some rally because he got caught by the PC police?
