Pat Sajak Faces Backlash for Seemingly Mocking Contestant's Lisp on 'Wheel of Fortune'

Pat Sajak is being called out.

The 74-year-old Wheel of Fortune host received backlash following Monday’s episode (February 22) of the show after mocking a contestant’s speech impediment.

During the introductions, Pat mimicked contestant Chris Brimble’s speech impediment, who has a lisp. After he described what he does for a living, instead of saying “I see,” Pat said, “I thee.”

Few people laughed on-set in the moment, and social media largely did not appreciate the interaction.

Pat apologized for a separate interaction late last year. Find out what happened.

One star recently deleted their Twitter account due to social media backlash over a new project.
