NBC News Slammed For Labeling Of "Jeopardy!" Champ

NBC News is in hot water. In case you missed it, they wrote a piece about Mattea Roach. The reigning “Jeopardy” champ had been on a 17-day winning streak, as of Wednesday. 

Earlier this week, NBC shared a tweet to promote their article about the Mattea’s win. “The 23-year-old lesbian tutor from Toronto has amassed a total of $320,081, the most by a Canadian contestant in ‘Jeopardy!’ history,” was how they headlined the tweet.

Needless to say, the Twitterverse was NOT pleased with the description. As one person put it, “Is her sexual orientation really relevant here?” Another person said, “Do better. Please. Was Ken Jennings or James Holzhauer described as heterosexual contestants?????” So far, NBC hasn’t addressed the tweet, which was still up as of press time.
