A Jeopardy! contestant used her Final Jeopardy answer to make a sick burn against liberals. For the prompt, Trebek displayed a picture of a flower accompanied by the following statement:
This flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left.
The answer was "Bleeding Heart." Becky Sullivan, one of the contestants, responded with "pansy."
She lost all of her $6,000 winnings, but the Internet thought her response was hilarious. People jumped the gun to label her a conservative, though. She tweeted the following while the episode was airing:
Sullivan is, in fact, a producer at NPR, which makes the misconception all the more ironic... You know, because NPR is radio and Jeopardy! is on TV.
