Wheel of Fortune recently released a video on Twitter with a special message from Vanna White.
Undoubtedly, Vanna White is one of America’s favorite television icons. So, it’s no surprise that Wheel of Fortune released a video recently with an endearing message from Vanna for fans.
During the video, Vanna shares that she and co-host Pat Sajak have been with the show for 38 years. She shares that, without fan support, the show wouldn’t be around. As she asks Pat to say “goodbye” he begins tearing up before the camera pans away.
Is There A Secret Message Behind Wheel Of Fortune‘s Latest Post?
When you first watch the video, it seems that both Vanna and Pat are simply celebrating the fact that they’ve been with the show for nearly four decades. However, fans are wondering if there’s more to the post than just celebration.
Recently, Pat Sajak received backlash for both a comment he made on the show and a message he wrote on Twitter. After fans believed Pat mocked a contestant with a lisp on the show, many demanded that Pat be fired as host of Wheel of Fortune. In response, Pat posted a message to Twitter and fans got even more upset. So, it makes sense why Wheel of Fortune fans may think that there’s more to Pat’s “goodbyes” and tears in the recent video.
One fan expressed their concern in a comment on the video. They wrote, “I didn’t know where this was going (whew).”
Another fan questioned the sincerity of Vanna’s message and Pat’s tears. They wrote, “But….was that a special occasion show ….or did Vanna just want to give a message like that? Because I didn’t care for the way Pat was mocking that contestant’s lisp a couple of shows ago. …so it’s hard to be able to tell when he’s genuinely sincere.”
Other fans believed that Pat was simply choked up by Vanna’s loving message and fans’ support. They wrote, “she made Pat speechless” along with a heart emoji.
Neither Pat Sajak nor Wheel of Fortune executives have commented on the recent backlash yet.
