According to MLive, Harvey was discussing the NBA Finals on his morning radio show when he made a super insensitive comment towards a caller that said Cleveland didn’t “deserve jack.” Harvey, a huuuuge Cavs fan, took the caller’s comments a bit too personal.
“You from Flint?,” Harvey said to the caller. “That’s why y’all ain’t even got clean water. When was the last time you touched water and it didn’t have lead in it?”
Then Harvey proceeded to tell the listener to “go have a nice glass of brown water!”
Twitter went nuts about the insensitive comment.
Steve Harvey says he was just joking, but does his explanation hold any water?
Harvey issued a statement that he and the caller were “talking trash about our teams and cities.”
The comedian went on to say, “Any attempts to craft this into anything more serves no one.”
Is Steven Harvey suffering from dementia or something?
His JOKE was unnecessary, distasteful and not funny.
Please do better.
