‘Wheel of Fortune’ and Pat Sajak attacked for ‘Southern Charm Week’ slaves

Hit game show “Wheel of Fortune” is the left’s new target for its feigned outrage.

More specifically, a background image used as a backdrop during the show’s “Southern Charm Week” that showed two black people in old Southern clothing that one eagle-eyed tv watcher believes are a depiction of slaves.

The photo was captured by show producers in 2005 at the Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, Louisiana.

When the offended party zoomed in extremely close to the photo of the screenshot he took while watching the show, it showed what appeared to be two black people in the old Southern attire.

The period from which the clothing comes was a time of slavery and thus, social media went off the rails blaming the game show for racial insensitivity.

Cue the outrage.

The liberal answer to anything they are offended by is to bully and to fire people.

“Wheel of Fortune” executive producer Harry Friedman issued a statement to the New York Daily News about the incident.

“We regret the use of this background image, and we will be replacing it moving forward on any rebroadcast,” he said.

Some on social media aimed their anger directly at the show’s host Pat Sajak, who is an outspoken conservative.

Really? And the evidence of that is?

Not surprisingly, no one offered any evidence of Sajak’s alleged racism.

Oak Alley Plantation spokeswoman Hillary Loeber said it hires tour guides of all skin colors to wear the period clothing.

Some people were able to comprehend that and pointed out that the women were dressed as Southern belles. The kind that greeted President Donald Trump when he visited Alabama.

Because outrage is all the rage.
