When “Family Fued” contestant, Christie, hit the buzzer to answer the typical pre-game face-off challenge, the question raised by host Steve Harvey was, “Name one thing you know about zombies.”
And Christie blurted out, “They’re black.”
Of course Steve Harvey and the competing Pierce family — who are African-American — weren’t having that. And to make bad matters worse, Harvey, in his signature say nothing, she will realize her answer was dumb in a minute stance, made the audience laugh even harder. Of course Christie wouldn’t shut up, nervously adding, “I don’t know if they’re white.”
Of course the answer was not on the board.
The Pierce family took control of the board and the game by countering, “They move slow” – an answer that was good enough for the sixth top answer. Needless to say, they decided to play instead of pass to the family that has clearly never seen a zombie.
