Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak is known for his sardonic sense of humor and engaging in witty exchanges with contestants on the popular game show.

But some thought his mocking of a contestant with a speech impediment on Monday's show crossed a line.

Watch the video below and see if you can spot the moment Sajak incurred backlash for his indiscretion.

During the segment of introductions, contestant Chris Brimble – whom many online viewers thought spoke with a lisp – told the three-time Emmy winner he was recently married and worked for a company that sold "technology that benefits older adults."

When Sajak asked if it was a "myth" that older people were averse to new technology, Brimble confirmed that was not the case and that the elderly were surprisingly more open to technology than one might think.

Instead of responding with, "I see," Sajak replied, "I thee."

Though the mockery did elicit a few audible chuckles off-camera from the other contestants and some production staff members, not everyone on social media found it funny.





Some called for Sajak's dismissal from his hosting duties.






According to Yahoo Entertainment, Brimble "appeared to have a good time," and went home with his $12,250 winnings after falling short of advancing to the bonus puzzle.

Sajak has yet to comment on the controversy.
