Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak ignited a Twitter backlash on Tuesday after posting about global warming alarmists on Monday night. The tweet read, “I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.”

The tweet got several responses, some from Sajak’s supporters, and other from bashers. One response was from Michael E. Mann, a climate scientist, who responded, “Hey @PatSajak, this ain’t the Wheel of Fortune. If we lose this game, it isn’t just one person’s misfortune. All humanity pays the price.”

Another twitter user, Davho Pidal, responded, “Congrats on recognizing & announcing your mental illness. I hope you get the help you need.”

Some are saying that Sajak tweeted just to poke fun at global warming advocates. His next tweet said, “Sometimes it’s fun to poke a stick in a hornet’s nest just to hear the buzzing.”

Sajak’s tweet on Monday night was not the first time he wrote about the topic. Earlier this month, the former weatherman tweeted, “Very hot weather: “We’re all going to die!” Very cold weather: “There’s a difference between climate & weather, moron!”

Sajak is a conservative. Another personality known for expressing his opinions is The Price is Right host, Drew Carey, who once said, “As far as your personal goals are and what you actually want to do with your life, it should never have to do with the government.”

In addition to tweeting about global warming, Sajak has also caused controversy on Twitter for posting about other topics. In April, the 67-year-old host tweeted saying that he is coming out as a heterosexual. The tweet drew harsh comments from his critics. They said that Sajak is making light of the very difficult task of coming out to heterosexual people.
