Jeopardy Contestant Is Very Sorry For Mixing Up Iggy Azalea & Azealia Banks

"This Australian hip-hopper used the pet name/street name system to come up with her rap name," Alex Trebek announced. Nicholas Bérubé thought he had the answer — or question, rather, since this is Jeopardy. He hit the buzzer and asked, "Who is Azealia Banks?" Ouch. The correct answer, of course, was Banks' archenemy, Iggy Azalea. 

Although Bérubé hasn't had the pleasure of meeting either rapper, his slip-up was immediately considered an indirect shot fired in the ongoing Iggy Azalea/Azealia Banks feud. Bérubé decided to take proactive steps to avoid getting pulled into the crossfire. He created a Twitter account to apologize to both Azealia Banks and the Internet at-large for his gaffe. He swore that he never intended to throw shade.
