Alex Trebek is a savage. Hear us out, and watch as the Jeopardy! host jokingly (yet viciously) slandered a contestant’s love of “nerdcore Hip-Hop.”

You knew the struggle was real when Trebek described it as something he’d never heard of “and it doesn’t sound like fun.”

The contestant replied, “I think it’s very fun, it’s called nerdcore Hip-Hop. It’s people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things they love; video games, science fiction, having a hard time meeting romantic partners, ya know.”

The contestant was smiling and being self-deprecating the whole time, and the crowd laughed along. Then Trebek dropped the hammer.

Did Trebek go too far? Watch below.
