Richard Dawson is trending on Twitter — eight years after his death. The longtime TV game show host, who emceed Family Feud years before Steve Harvey took over the reins, is being dragged on the social media platform for his past habit of kissing female contestants on the lips.
Dawson hosted Family Feud from 1976 to 1985 and then again for one season in 1994.
