Pat Sajak, who has been presenting contestants with puzzles on TV's Wheel of Fortune since the early 80s, has posted a puzzling tweet on his Twitter page.
The game show host tweeted: 'Damn the career consequences! I'm hereby proclaiming my heterosexuality!'
Sajak, 67, did not follow up with any kind of explanation but the timing of the tweet comes at a time when an increasing number of people in entertainment and sports are getting a lot of attention for coming out publicly.
The tweet has gotten plenty of reaction from followers including some who were not amused.
