How a Jeopardy! Contestant’s Hand Gesture Became Part of a Conspiracy — Ben Smith at the New York Times: Hundreds of Jeopardy fans are convinced contestant Kelly Donohue’s on-air three-finger gesture was a white supremacist signal, even though there’s no evidence to support the theory, he denies it, and both Snopes and the Anti-Defamation League debunk it.

Snopes points out that Donohue was probably celebrating having won the game three times.

Nonetheless, the Jeopardy fans are demanding that Donohue apologize.
