Thus far, 2020 has been trash for all bearing witness to it. While many of us stay home amid social distancing mandates, thus slightly limiting the potential for any deeds worthy of public shaming, a contestant from Monday night’s episode of Jeopardy! is one exception.
A white participant on the longtime game show was not so patiently waiting for host Alex Trebek to finish reading the clue to a question from the category "The Zulus" before blurting out what she thought was the most logical answer.
"Here as on each September 24th Zulu celebrate a holiday that was named in honor of this warrior leader of the early 1800s," Trebek said.
"Who is Chaka Khan," the Jeopardy! participant blurted out before throwing her hands up in agony.
Political commentator Marc Lamont Hill posted a clip of the embarrassing moment on Instagram, which garnered hilarious comments.
"When you wish you had a 'rewind' button for life! I feel for her!" Hill wrote.
