A clue on Sunday night’s episode of the beloved game show “Jeopardy!” was slammed by fans for being “tasteless.”
The evening’s episode of “Celebrity Jeopardy,” in which actors John Michael Higgins, Wil Wheaton and Joel Kim Booster competed, included an opening category that featured the letter “A” in the responses.
One clue read, “In 2021, fugitive Brian Laundrie ended his days in Fla’s Myakkahatchee Creek area, home to these long & toothy critters.”
