Pat Sajak Faces Backlash for Mocking Contestant’s Lisp on Wheel of Fortune

Pat Sajak has received backlash following Monday’s episode (February 22) of the show after mocking a contestant’s speech impediment.

During the introductions, Pat is heard possibly mimicking contestant Chris Brimble’s speech impediment, who has a lisp. After he described what he does for a living, instead of saying “I see,” Pat said, “I thee.”

Few people laughed on-set in the moment (awkward) and social media did not appreciate his interaction.
