  • 'Jeopardy!' Guest Host Under Fire for Insensitive '14 Tweet

The 74-time champion of "Jeopardy!".

"Jeopardy!" record-holder Ken Jennings will be the first in a series of interim hosts replacing Alex Trebek when the show resumes production next week.

'Nope, ' she tweeted along with the story.

Jennings, who appears to have now deleted the tweet, addressed the insensitive post in 2018, but the message has regained steam in light of his upcoming guest hosting role.

When asked why Yvette disliked the selection, she replied, 'Peep his old tweets and get back at me'.

Jennings won 74 games of Jeopardy! in a row and claimed the show's "Greatest Of All Time" title in a competition a year ago.

A Twitter user slammed Ken Jennings' over past wheelchair tweet.

Sony Pictures Television revealed on Monday Jennings, a fan favorite who holds the record for the longest winning streak on the show, will kick off a series of interim guest hosts from the Jeopardy! family when production resumes on November 30.

But the wheelchair tweet was not the only time Ken offended people.

Trebek, the quick-witted and debonair television host who won over generations of fans at the helm of the popular quiz show,"Jeopardy!", died at 80 earlier this month after a almost two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. He wrote, "It can't be a good sign that every fan who has seen the new Star Wars movie died shortly thereafter".

In August 2019, he also made a sarcastic remark about Canadians who flocked Seattle to watch a baseball game.

Yahoo Entertainment reached out to Sony Pictures Entertainment for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.
