Some "Jeopardy" viewers took to Twitter Monday night to criticize the normally controversy-free game show for featuring a category they charged was sexist.
The category that caused the uproar was titled "What Women Want" and the series of clues read by host Alex Trebek got the show in hot water.
"Some help around the house; would it kill you to get out the Bissel Bagless canister one of these every once in a while?" was one of the clues. The correct answer? "What is a vacuum cleaner?"
Another clue read, "Before bed, a cup of this herbal tea from Celestial Seasonings; that's the logo, seen here." The correct response was "What is Sleepytime?"
Actress Sophia Bush, along with a slew of social media users, took to Twitter to express disappointment in the show's category.
