My 2 Cents ๐Ÿ’ญ

The internet NEVER lets you forget!

It has been a whirlwind sort of affair, watching guest hosts vie to be the next permanent host of Jeopardy!. I’ve enjoyed a few of the guests, but I had a feeling that Mike Richards was going to be the chosen face, although he didn’t stand out for me. As the Executive Producer of Jeopardy!, I felt as if he shouldn’t have even guest hosted, however, I was willing to give him a chance as the new host. That was, until the angry internet mob decided to remind him of unsavory comments he made on an eight-year-old podcast series in 2013 and 2014 about women, Jews, and other groups. They cried out for blood, and Richards had no choice, but to step down.

Nowadays, people drag others down for their sins, and they mostly do it from behind the screen bringing up “receipts” and “tea”, and crying out for cancel culture. We tend to look at the past instead of the present. Who is to say that Richards is not a changed man now? Why can’t forgiveness play a role, given that we’re all fickle creatures and the ones rattling the cage are not without sin as well?ย 

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

Colossians 3:13

Getting back to Jeopardy!, most fans were excited about LeVar Burton despite his guest hosting gig having the lowest ratings. My favorites were David Faber and Joe Buck. I was hoping that one of them would’ve been chosen to be the next face of the game show, seeing that they brought a sense of enjoyment and entertainment to the show, especially Buck.ย 

You’ve heard this many, many times before, but be careful of what you say on the internet, for your footprints are easy to track as the internet never lets you forget.

And that’s my two cents.

    Definitely agree with you on this, dear. It is true, we have to be careful. But this cancel culture also does not sit well with me.
