Well, we know who will never be invited to a secret celebrity Dungeons and Dragons game.
Wil Wheaton, who often appeared on “The Big Bang Theory” as himself (and sometimes as Sheldon’s enemy), wrote on Monday that he didn’t appreciate “Jeopardy!” co-host Ken Jennings.
According to a Facebook post by Wheaton, the former “Star Trek” star was very annoyed by a Daily Beast story about Jennings crossing the Writers Guild of America’s (WGA) picket line to keep the long-running game show going during the writers’ strike.
Mayim Bialik, who co-hosts “Jeopardy!” with Ken Jennings and was a co-star on “The Big Bang Theory” with Wil Wheaton, reportedly pulled out of taping the game show for the rest of the season to show support for WGA writers who are on strike over pay and working conditions.
This is a VERY small town, Ken Jennings,
Wheaton began his scathing post.
And we will all remember this. Your privilege may protect you right now, but we will *never* forget.
Mayim Bialik and Jennings have been co-hosts of “Jeopardy!” since July 2022. They have taken turns hosting the show. But because Deadline says Mayim Bialik is stepping away in support of WGA writers, Jennings will take her place on the last episodes of the season, which will be filmed on the Sony lot May 16–19.
Writers Guild of America members write the clues for “Jeopardy!” as per Deadline, and some of them, like Michele Loud, Jim Rhine, and Billy Wisse, have joined the strike. But the news source also says that writers finished their work before the season and the strike.
Our words are on the screen every night,
“Jeopardy!” writer Loud told Variety recently.
There is no ‘Jeopardy’ without writers. Without us it’s just an empty blue screen.
In the comments to his Facebook post, Wheaton also said some harsh things about people who didn’t want to join the union.
Hey y’all, if you’re here to shit on unions, you can fuck right off,
the “Stand By Me” star said in the comments of his post.
I’ve been a union man since I was a union boy, and I will be a union man until the day I die. If you’re here to shit on the workers of the world, or to make excuses for someone who is currently doing that, go fuck yourself and don’t come back.
