Mike Richards, a white male, was forced to "step down" as the new host and replacement for Alex Trebek.

Allegedly he said something mean on a social media platform.

I call on all who are tired of the social justice, racist, anti white man movement to boycott the show.

haven't watched it since Trebek died
Link Posted: 8/20/2021 2:05:40 PM EDT
Already did when Trebek left.

What kind of idiot who works in media goes on a podcast anytime in the last decade and makes jokes about fat women and Jews?

Zero fucks given.

Haven't watched it in decades, so I'm way ahead of you.

Le tits now

I haven't watched Jeopardy since Art Fleming left the show in 1974.

I guess I'll be boycotting because I don't do TV.

This.

I have not owned a TV for 30 years.

I guess count me as outraged and boycotting.

In other news- TV is the vehicle by which anti freedom sentiment is distributed 24/7.  Why would you keep watching?
Link Posted: 8/20/2021 2:20:50 PM EDT
I’d like to know exactly what he said, simply because it might be original enough to use again some day
Link Posted: 8/20/2021 2:20:59 PM EDT
Did that years ago.

Trebeque was a fucking pompous liberal douchebag that looked down his nose at everybody.
Link Posted: 8/20/2021 2:21:37 PM EDT
I don't care. He wasn't the best for the job.

I'd take Jennings over Richards and I didn't like him either.

Haven't watched in 25 years.

Haven't had cable or antenna in 10 years, OP.  That's how you boycott all of them.

Piss off. I love when comedians push the envelope and exercise their 1A.

I like Levar Burton for the job, Blossom can GTFO!

I have been boycotting jeopardy for some time now. Once I started to crunch the numbers and found out that the contestants aren't equally represented compared to the racial, preferred sex and geological make up of the USA I stopped watching.

I can not support such a show with that level of bigotry.
Link Posted: 8/20/2021 2:26:59 PM EDT
I thought this thread was a warning about the perils of boycotting.

Just my opinion, but I think we should care about folks getting 'removed' for exercising free speech.

It is fully my belief that a corporation should be able to decide to fire anybody for any reason at all.

If someone's putting a bad light on the corporation I definitely understand their desire to separate themselves from that.

But if now the politically correct police are determining that someone should lose their job over we have serious fucking issues that deserve our attention.

Let's not forget, the people complaining about stupid shit are usually pretty uninformed, and are happy with that.

OP is wrong.  Actions have consequences.  He said stupid things, now he pays the price.

They need a "correct" replacement for him.

Jeopardy.... Now hosted by Ru Paul. "OMG! Historic!!"
Link Posted: 8/20/2021 2:35:07 PM EDT
Ok I’ll keep on not watching it

That's what makes a lot of comics funny, they take something to the extreme, or they make fun of societal norms. Some of the funniest bits in history would get the comedian canceled today.

Red Foxx, Chevy Chase, Flip Wilson, Eddie Murphy, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, etc. would have been canceled before getting famous. Kevin Hart was removed from Academy awards for an old joke.

Watch some of the old Rat Pack movies and clips. The joking between Sammy Davis Jr. and the others would be considered extremely offensive today. Never mind the sexism and misogyny in their songs and movies.

They should bring Darrell Hammond on to host but only if he is doing Sean Connery

Link Posted: 8/20/2021 2:44:24 PM EDT
They should advertise an openly racist / offensive week on jeopardy.  

Like.

Ebonics
Rednecks
The Jews Did it
Curry a favor
Camels

Then run the ratings.

I’ll take “Who gives a shit?” for $500.

“Things that sound racist, but aren’t.” would be an amazing category.

This word means not generous or stingy.

SJW crap aside, the person hosting an intellectual quiz show has to have a certain level of intelligence to explain wrong answers, partial answers and understand right answers. The only place SJW crap would equal higher intelligence is in some communist fantasy land.

The best boycott is to cut the cable.

Hell of a thing, having an intelligence test to get on the show. I guess they could drop the testing if they wanted an audience of 'gumball machines' to match the contestants.

They're trying to ride on Alex Trebek's coat tails and it's not working.
Jeopardy needs to go away and return a year or so later with a new look but the same basic format.

But fat women ARE jokes.

Equal opportunity sucks sometimes women. Deal with it.
