Damn, Trebek.

During the interview portion of the Oct. 12, 2016, episode, contestant Susan Cole discussed her penchant for nerdcore hip-hop. She said the raps are about things like "video games, science-fiction, [and] having a hard time meeting romantic partners." Trebek was not impressed.

Yoooooooo, Alex Trebek is the coldest dude in the game, lololololol. I'm dying laughing. @DragonflyJonez…

"Losers, in other words," Trebek said of people like Cole.


Nerdcore hip-hop artist Mega Ran even posted a rap on Twitter to defend Cole and the music form.

Wrote some words for #AlexTrebek on the way from the venue tonight... your move, haha 🤓💥🔫

"Alex Trebek, you lost a lot of respect / I gotta check you off the rip for coming outta your neck / Talking sideways on geeks, man you a trip / Guess you haven’t heard, nerds make up half of your viewership," he said in part of his rap.
