Twitter users were split over Pat Sajak’s clapback, with some claiming it was wrong to call contestant Darin ‘ungrateful’ while others insisted he was just joking around. (Jim Spellman/WireImage)
Responding to a clip of the moment on Twitter, the viewer added: “He wasn’t ‘mean’ or condescending. I watch this every weeknight.”
Another insisted: “He was kidding around. How does this get twisted into Pat losing it???”
Darin’s appearance on the show was unique in that he revealed his mother was a three-night champion back in the 1980s. He ultlimately took home $15,350, according to Yahoo!, as well as an apology from Sajak.
