David Letterman countered the “Jeopardy!” sexism controversy on Wednesday night with a Top 10 list devoted to even more offensive categories.
On Monday’s show, “Jeopardy!” used a category called “What Women Want.”
Topics included jeans that fit well, a few moments of quiet to do a crossword puzzle, some help around the house (regarding a vacuum), pilates and a nice, relaxing cup of tea.
A female contestant burned through the category, answering all but one question correctly. The answers elicited cries of sexism on social media from viewers and celebrities, with Rosie O’Donnell saying, “I’ll take equal pay for $500,” as quoted on “The View’s” Twitter feed.
