Chuck D Responds to ‘Jeopardy’ Contestant Who Got Public Enemy Question Wrong in the Most Hilarious Kind of Way

After a Jeopardy contestant confused Public Enemy with The Funky Bunch on a recent episode, PE frontman Chuck D has responded.
Chuck D of Public Enemy is playing it cool after a recent game show slip-up. Long-running series Jeopardy might be down with hip-hop culture, but not all contestants are familiar with the genre that turns 50 next August. During a recent episode of Jeopardy, contestant Halley Ryherd was given a clue from temporary host Mayim Bialik from the category titled “Chuck D, Times 3.”

“In the 1990’s Chuck D began fighting the power in this hip-hop group with Flavor Flav, a man who always knew what time it was,” the question read.

The answer might have been obvious to hip-hop heads, but not to Ryherd who answered “The Funky Bunch.”
