Brian Laundrie’s family wants ‘Celebrity Jeopardy!’ apology for clue mentioning his suicide

Brian Laundrie’s family demanded “Celebrity Jeopardy!” apologize for a “distasteful” clue mentioning his suicide.

Social media users were up in arms after the trivia game show included a clue Monday night that read: “In 2021 fugitive Brian Laundrie ended his days in Fla.’s Myakkahatchee Creek area, home to these long & toothy critters.”

Laundrie, 23, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound while hiding in the Florida wilderness last fall. He was running from a nationwide manhunt tied to the death of his fiancé, 22-year-old Gabby Petito. Alligators apparently chomped on his body afterwards.

Many people were curious why “Jeopardy” invoked Laundrie’s suicide for the alligator question . Laundrie family attorney Steve Bertolino agreed.

“The entire Laundrie family is appalled and concurs with all of the comments on social media on how distasteful this was,” Bertolino told TMZ on Tuesday. “I believe an apology is due.”

In a private journal found after he died, Laundrie confessed to killing Petito.
