Cancel culture is rapidly getting worse.
Woke mobs are disrupting people’s lives and livelihoods.
And one anti-Trump host lost out on the Jeopardy! gig for a shocking reason.
Liberals are finally getting a taste of cancel culture.
They’re slowly learning that the “woke” Left are not their allies.
Establishment shills like Chrissy Teigen and Alec Baldwin have both recently found themselves on the wrong end of cancel culture.
Now liberal game show contestant and host Ken Jennings is facing the heat.
Jennings, who rose to fame by having the longest win streak in Jeopardy! history, was featured as a guest host on the show while producers searched for a permanent replacement for Alex Trebek.
Jennings, who frequently attacks Republicans and conservatives online, ironically lost out on the permanent hosting gig because of mean tweets.
“According to a report, Jeopardy! champ Ken Jennings was nixed for consideration as a permanent host for the game show because of his long history of hateful social media posts.
Jennings’ attempts at edgy tweets go back at least as far as 2014, but most recently, he was slammed for a 2018 post lamenting when a ‘hot person’ is a wheelchair user — as though being in a wheelchair somehow wastes their beauty. Last December, Jennings apologized for the tweet, saying, ‘Hey, I just wanted to own up to the fact that over the years on Twitter, I’ve definitely tweeted some unartful [sic] and insensitive things…Sometimes they worked as jokes in my head, and I was dismayed to see how they read on screen.”
Daytime host Katie Couric allegedly disqualified herself, too, by suggesting that Trump supporters should be put into re-education camps.
The Jeopardy! audience trends older and has many conservative viewers, so the show didn’t want to hire someone whom half the audience might consider hostile to their opinions.
More from Breitbart:
“People familiar with the selection process told the Wall Street Journal that his long history of toxic snark tarnished Jennings’ reputation. The paper also reported that the tweets impacted focus group reactions to Jennings, and his ‘succession plan started unraveling’ as a result.
The tweet about disabled people was not the only hateful thing Jennings ever said on Twitter.”
Jennings has repeatedly wished death on Republicans, and even insulted Donald Trump’s son, tweeting: “Barron Trump saw a very long necktie on a heap of expired deli meat in a dumpster. He thought it was his dad & his little heart is breaking.”
Jennings’s tweets are indicative of a Left that has become increasingly hostile and authoritarian.
If not for his history of nasty tweets, he would’ve been an obvious selection for the show.
Now Jeopardy is scrambling to fill Trebek’s shoes.
Show producer Mike Richards was named the permanent host, but he was forced to step down after the cancel mob dredged up old stories and podcast quotes.
Richards has since been fired from his executive producer role with the show.
Nobody is safe from the cancel mob today.
The Left has shown that they are perfectly willing to eat their own.
