Jeopardy! fans outraged after Kelly Clarkson SLAMS viewers for 'picking on' Mayim Bialik & snaps 'focus on REAL issues'

JEOPARDY! fans are outraged after Kelly Clarkson told viewers to lay off Mayim Bialik.

Mayim appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show on April 7 to talk about her new movie, As They Made Us, and Jeopardy! was brought up.

A clip was released on YouTube of the actress' time on the show which featured her comment on "Single Jeopardy!."

"So wait, you recently called the first round 'Single Jeopardy!' instead of just Jeopardy! So how did people react to that?" Kelly chuckled.

"I have clue boards that I review," Mayim said, to which Kelly nodded.

"And the first one does say 'Single Jeopardy!' and the second one says 'Double Jeopardy,' so I didn't make something up that doesn't exist," she continued.

"And people lost their minds. So we usually call it the Jeopardy! round and one time, we were going to commercial- and I just want you to know that I didn't go rogue. I have a whole team watching me," Mayim went on.

"If they wanted me to redo it, they would've stopped me, but they didn't, so I continued. But this caused a whole viral Jeopardy! situation," she finished.

Kelly laughed and revealed her team gets mad because she goes rogue so often.

"Isn't it crazy what people freak out about?" the talk show host asked.

Mayim chuckled and said, "A lot of people care about Jeopardy!"

"I know it is important, but you almost just want to like start sending them real things that are happening, that are important, You know?" Kelly said.

Mayim laughed and the American Idol album continued. "There's real issues. Why did you focus on that? But whatever."

The actress just smiled as the clip ended and didn't respond, but now fans are slamming Kelly for bringing it up.


Fans watching the YouTube clip were quick to bash the 39-year-old for what she said.

"From 1:06 on…it's funny that Kelly starts admonishing people to focus on 'more important issues' when most of her own talk show is fluff," someone commented.

"This comes off as condescending towards people who are just passionate about the show. Not that what they're saying is necessarily incorrect because there are some bigger issues in the world," said another.

"It doesn't really make sense for a celebrity talk show host or game show host to assume some type of moral high ground with regard to important global issues," added a viewer.

Many of the mean comments towards Kelly were removed from YouTube, but fans on Reddit jumped on it soon after.

"Yes. Yes we do. Jeopardy! means so much to me, because I would watch with my grandma. After Alex died, it hit me hard, because J! & Alex, was one of my biggest links to her," someone on the thread said.

"Thankfully. I slept through Kelly today," wrote another.

Moderators were also removing comments on Reddit, even though commenters didn't think they were that bad.

Some fans did agree with Kelly, however, and say that Mayim should respond to the backlash and tell them they are more important things to worry about.


This backlash comes after Kelly decided to legally change her name, amidst her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.

Although still known as Kelly Clarkson to the public, the singer is legally changing her name to Kelly Brianne, which is her middle name.

With her divorce being finalized this year, she decided she needed a fresh start.

"I just got divorced, so I had to drop my married last name," Kelly told People.

"I just kept my middle name for my personal life. I'm still Kelly Clarkson," she continued.

"I don't think I can change Clarkson at this point. I'm 20 years in!" she told the outlet.
