There are currently a bunch of Twitter randos calling out Andy Slavitt for not straight up saying what he meant and ďreading too much into things/an innocent symbolĒ/whatever, and while I know Twitter randos are there to be ignored (especially one persistent reply guy/apparent troll who is trying badly to bothsides this by posting photos of Obama and others making OK hand gestures) I wonder why he didnít straight out and say it.

MAGA looks are bad, and any attempt at obfuscation makes it worse.

Guess Iím glad I missed the last couple of episodes due to work? Last episode I caught was Thursdayís, and while Kelly won on that one, he didnít twig anything for me except for his thick Boston accent.

Jeopardy's been shooting with a live, but distanced, audience for a while, starting with the writers and other crew back in like June 2020. Johnny Gilbert still records his intros from home, because the man is almost 93, but there have been actual people in the seats for quite some time.

Yeah, I from the post responded to it sounded like something real was actually known.

a) He didnít even make the OK hand signal
b) The whole white power link was invented as a joke, isnít real, and that gesture is widely used the world over every day. Pull yourself together American media.

Ah yes, the classic "it's a common gesture, you're just reading too much into it" defense. It's almost as if they picked a common gesture like that to be able to defend it that way.

Being invented as a joke does not mean it "isn't real". You can go look up pictures of Kyle Rittenhouse flashing it in bars if you're inclined. Though I'm sure his usage of it is innocent as well. See also: pepe the frog and other misappropriated symbols that have been adopted by the alt-right.

The other context to the Jeopardy guy is he has pictures wearing a MAGA hat, as well as a Facebook banner image he previously posted of Sinatra giving the "OK" sign. Totally just a coincidence.

Yeah, it mightíve started with /b/ or /pol/ trolling people, but when people started using that poo poo IRL unironically, the ďitís just a joak, címon gais!Ē defense falls apart really loving quickly.

As the ACLU points out, context in this stuff matters, and the context on his FB page makes it pretty loving racist and you have to either ignorant or pretty drat deep into the Kool-Aide and purposely downplaying things for the ďjust a joak!Ē defense to fly at all here, like a lot of the Twitter culture warriors attempting to downplay this.

Oh, and the Jeopardy contestant Facebook group is clearly on the side of it being racist or at least a reference of some sort, even if Snopesí current article on the subject doesnít, and it doesnít look like heíll be getting an invite anytime soon despite his frequent FB posting.

Yeah the joke became real at some point. That's not to say that everyone flashing the OK symbol is making a white power sign--that would be a profoundly stupid reaction and the very one the trolling was meant to cause in the first place--but sometimes they definitely are.

I mortified myself a few months ago because a guy was dropping off a food order and asked through the window if he could leave it on the table outside. I said "sure" and meant to give a thumbs up, but accidentally gave an OK sign instead. And the guy wasn't white. gently caress everybody who came up with that joke and gently caress everybody who ran with it.

Edit: And gently caress anybody who posts right after me, pretending that a thing called "context" doesn't exist or matter.

Are you sure youíre not thinking about all the feminist / Lesbian/ Womenís Health subs that were straight up deleted, or else had the mods forcibly replaced by Reddit insiders, who are all oddly enough transwomen?

It seems relevant that he was probated for the same kind of bigoted behavior that he's arguing did not take place and that other people are ridiculous for seeing. I think it helps inform that he's not coming from a place of honest disagreement.
