Wheel of Fortune fans are divided over Pat Sajak’s rude question to Vanna White

Longtime Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak and letter writer Vanna White have been developing their on-air chemistry for nearly four decades.

But on Wednesday, Sajak White popped a question that some viewers felt was overblown.

According to the New York Post, professional opera singer Ashley Fabian won more than $67,000 in Wednesday’s episode. As the show wound down, Sajak and White started their usual banter.

Given Fabian’s job, Sajak tried to discuss the issue at hand.

“Are you even an opera fan?” he asked Weiss. She replied, “Yes, I’m not a buff, but I like opera.”

Sajak then popped the question that would fuel debate on social media for hours after the show ended.

“Have you ever seen an opera in the buff?” he said. “I’m just wondering.”

White simply replied, “No,” and the two continued to smile and chat while the credits rolled.

Was this question offensive?

Some social media users were shocked and even outraged by the comment and expressed their concerns.

One user even labeled the comment a “#metoo moment.”

Meanwhile, others said Sajak was simply trying to make a joke and critics were looking for a reason to be angry.

In any case, Sajak and White’s longstanding professional relationship makes it unlikely that this moment will lead to any major rift between the two.

As for the fans, the debate can continue.
