ABOVE: What did Pat Sajack tweet that has climate change activists so riled up?
TORONTO — Game show host Pat Sajak sparked a social media meltdown this week when he weighed in on climate change.
“I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends,” the 67-year-old Wheel of Fortune host tweeted. “Good night.”
Reaction on Twitter was swift, damning — and occasionally clever.
Sajak seemed to be enjoying the furor. Tuesday, he followed up with: “Sometimes it’s fun to poke a stick in a hornets’ nest just to hear the buzzing.”
Only a few days earlier, Sajak took another jab at climate change.
