Steve Harvey Suffers an Onslaught of Racist Reactions After Miss Universe Accident


Moments after Steve Harvey  crowned the wrong Miss Universe, the Internet wasted no time roasting him with clever memes and gifs of the faux pas.

Though his mis-announcement was cringe-worthy, Harvey took full responsibility for his error. He graciously apologized to Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines, live on the show and on Twitter (albeit grammatically incorrect at first).

Still, racism managed to merge its way into the situation as some Twitter users hurled racial expletives at Harvey. A series of tweets from multiple accounts with mostly Spanish names, called the Family Feud host the n-word and told him to “Go back to Africa stupid monkey.” One user was particularly upset writing, “@IAmSteveHarvey F*cking n*gger! You don’t know how to read! F*cking monkey! F*ck you! Colombia won.” 

Alvaro Ortiz Bonell, who has a less than perfect grasp on the English language, added: “hey fucking N*gger are yo high or you are so stupid that even know read a card.”

Harvey did not address the derogatory tweets, but he did add an apology to the viewers. Fans have also shown major support quickly reminding everyone that nobody is perfect, especially on live television.

This serves as a much needed reminder that racism lives well beyond U.S. borders.

  1. It's only a beautiful face thing. There are many beautiful women every which way you turn who are to busy doing their thing to enter contest for a few minues of fame. So who cares. Is Colombia that hungry? What is the fuss about it? Racist slurs come from people who definitely have major problems with their fellow human. Because in truth there is only one Race and its human – people who all use the same organs in the bedrooms and washroom. People wake up there is no other race, but human. And if there is I have yet to seem them.

  2. What do you expect from a nation of reprobates

  3. That just shows how much peoploe think about other people and how cowardly they are for saying those things that can only be read. And for all of you who say he can't read, I bet you that he knows how to count those millions he has.

  4. "I Don't Give A Damn About Slavery" — Steve Harvey

  5. I rather think that he was set up and there is no way for him to prove it. Too disturbed!!! Yeeeeeaaah….another conspiracy! Joke apart, really a conspiracy shouldn't be out of the picture.

  6. It was a mistake, one that any one could have made. It don't have to play out this way. I'm sure Steve feel bad for the mistake.

    Colombian cartels have actually bribed judges in the past for Miss Colombia to win the Miss Universe contest. THIS IS A KNOWN FACT!!

  8. Stupid as white ppl it was a mistake tall poor white trailer park trash

    betcha nobody knew that at tulhe same time Steve made that "mistake", the jury voted not to indict ANYONE in the Sandra Bland case in Hoston, Texas. This is a classic case of deflection and distraction.. Wake up people..wake the hell up..

  11. That's what we do best, Bro….We're good shepards who always
    welcome back every sheep that was lost. As we know of, Steve Harvey is like everybody else's prostitute. He's selling big time and is for sale…Greed is Good…He's hot and making a killing. But he rather be careful with this establishment. He keeps talking about GROWN MAN this….GROWN MAN that, but he always sounded like a fool or a hungry baby with a lot of teeth. He should stop selling and rather be on his watch. He's on his way down already. That's our system.

    the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

    prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. People get those two words mixed up all the time.

    So here is some clarification. 99.9% of people walking around exhibits some form of prejudice in their lifetime. Even you. The black community is no exception to the rule with this light skin vs. dark skin debate going on on youtube. I am a light skin mixed womand and I get so much hate from black people.

  13. I have a major boner right now.

  14. Andra Andra says:

    Edouard Saint-clair You sound like a hater! He is human and we all make mistakes.

  15. Tony Masando says:
