Jeopardy forced to clarify the inclusion of the “creepy” Russia-Ukraine question in Friday’s episode

US game show danger was forced to clarify a question about Russia and Ukraine that appears in his latest episode.

A tip emerged on Friday (March 4) concerning the two countries, but which was grossly outdated after Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s February 24 invasion of Ukraine.

danger Host Ken Jennings announced the notice as “bordering on Russia,” with the question reading, “The Kerch Strait — along with serious border issues — separates Russia from this Black Sea country.”

The answer was Ukraine, the question referring to the strait that separates Russia from Crimea to the west and Ukraine to the north.

Before the episode aired, the series’ official Twitter account issued a warning.

The message read: “Please note that the reference on tonight’s show regarding Russia and Ukraine was recorded on January 11, 2022.”

When the question came up in the episode, a disclaimer that read “Taken January 11, 2022” was displayed at the top of the screen.

Those who hadn’t seen the post shared their surprised responses on social media, with some calling the inclusion of the question “spooky” and “creepy” just weeks before Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Others called the series on the issue as there had been rising tensions between the countries long before the invasion began.

Meanwhile, a contingent of viewers brushed aside the question and even suggested that the series’ producers shouldn’t have bothered to clarify the inclusion of the question since it’s obvious the series was pre-taped.
