Jeopardy contestant Kelly Donohue is speaking out after he was accused by viewers of making a racist hand gesture during contestant introductions.

Viewers accused Donohue of flashing a “white power” hand symbol during introductions and according to Donohue, that’s just not true and is a terrible misunderstanding.

I absolutely, unequivocally condemn white supremacy and racism of any kind, Donohue said. I was simply raising three fingers to mark my third win. There was nothing more I was trying to indicate.  Despite Donohue speaking out, fans are still outraged about the incident and have sent in complaint letters. The Jeopardy production team hasn’t responded to the fans’ letter.
