On the September 14, 2017 game of Jeopardy!, contestant Ellen Wernecke saw the following clue, under 3 OF A KIND $200:
This animated character’s nephews are Huey, Dewey & Louie
Unfortunately, Ellen responded with “Who is Scrooge McDuck?” instead of “Who is Donald Duck?”
The Internet got upset, as they are wont to do, with many people taking to Twitter to demand justice for Ellen.
@Jeopardy I'm fuming over this Scrooge McDuck fail. I demand justice for Ellen.

Unfortunately for these netizens, they aren’t quite correct.
Scrooge McDuck is the grand-uncle of Huey, Dewey, & Louie, making “Who is Donald Duck?” the only correct response.
