A photo of longtime “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak with Georgia MP Marjorie Taylor Greene has surfaced, and people on Twitter are furious.
The photo, apparently captured earlier this month, went viral on Twitter after it was shared by a Twitter account described as “exposing right-wing extremism and other threats to democracy”.
One user wrote, “Pictured: Pat Sajak and Vanna Whitesupremacist,” referring to Sajak’s ‘Wheel of Fortune’ co-host Vanna White, while another tweeted, “Pat Sajak has always been far-right madman, I’m not surprised at all. .”
Additionally, scholars and a former political candidate offered their views on Sajak’s photo and whether they thought it was a revelation or not.

Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill shared his disgust, writing: “First Chuck Woolery. Now Pat Sajak. Are all game show hosts garbage?” Chuck Woolery, the original host of “Wheel of Fortune,” has also been criticized for his political views.
Diana Gonzalez, director of media relations at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, wrote that she would no longer watch “Wheel of Fortune.” She tweeted, “The company you keep is pretty unfortunate @patsajak. (sic) Will change channels when you spin the wheel.”

Former US House of Representatives candidate Johnny Akzam seemed confused as to why the photo was getting such an intense reaction, writing: “This is not news. It is well known that Pat Sajak is a raving conservative. Watch the show, don’t watch the show, but he’s about to retire and you’re all over half my life late.”
Sajak, who has hosted the game show since 1981, recently opened up about a potential departure and retirement.
Other users were less critical of the TV personality for her photo appearance with Greene.
One person noted, “The fact that people hate Pat Sajak just because of his conservative views is a microcosm of everything that’s wrong with our country right now.”

Another individual came to the 75-year-old’s defense, tweeting, “Cancel culture is completely out of control. Latest victim…PAT SAJAK!!”
Neither Sajak nor Greene has commented on the photo going viral.
