Wheel of Fortune deep fake video goes viral

*A video that went viral on TikTok this week purporting to show a Wheel of Fortune contestant guessing the N-word has been debunked as digitally altered.

The trickery began on December 17, when TikTok user @mostlyh2o shared a clip of a white contestant named Darren attempting to answer a puzzle with just one letter left in a word reading “Clam _igger.” Darren guesses “N” instead of “D,” and after an awkward pause, host Pat Sajak reveals that his guess is incorrect.

The video, which has been viewed more than 2.4 million times and collected over 500,000 likes, became so popular that the fact checking website Snopes got involved and quickly identified it as a fraud, saying the same video was uploaded to YouTube on May 4, 2011, and additional versions of the video were uploaded in the years since.
