Steve Harvey recently posted a photo of he and two of the industry’s most popular comedians, but folks seemed more concerned with their appearance than anything.
Harvey first made his way into comedy in 1985 as a stand-up comedian and was deemed one of the “Original Kings of Comedy” in the early 2000s. The now comedian-turned television host definitely paid his dues and influenced a younger generation of comedians like “Friday” actor Chris Tucker and stand-up comic Dave Chappelle.
Harvey, Tucker and Chappelle appeared to have been friends for a while and hangout from time-to-time. On Saturday, Harvey posted an Instagram photo of him and the other two renowned comics. He captioned the image, “Chappelle, Tucker and Me. … Great eve with a couple of Legends an ol friends … Man!!!!! Really made me miss THE KINGS!!!!! ….. great advice from Dave coming soon.”
However, the 61-year-old’s picture with Tucker, 47 and Chappelle, 45 quickly went left after several fans centered more on their “aging” appearance than their celebrated status.
“WOW you all look old, Damn 💯.”
“Lol ya’ll getting old!!”
“Omg I always think of Tucker in rush hour. He’s gotten old. As we all do!”
“Damn ya’ll look old. Never thought I would see the day 😭😭.”
“Stop getting old!!”
“U look like their dad Steve!! U guys gettin old! 😂 lookin good tough!💪🏾.”
However others were more than happy to see the legends posing together.
“Wow three legends love this picture, ” one fan wrote.
Another added, “Legends! May God continue to bless you all 🙏 !”
One person commented, “You three on stage would be priceless! Looking like Kings! Awesome gentlemen.”
In September, news broke that Harvey’s talk show “Steve” was canceled after seven years and won’t be aired on certain NBC stations around the country. The show instead will be replaced by with the “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
Harvey, on the other hand, remained in good spirits after the cancellation of his show and told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in October, “I’ve always been an optimistic person. … This is NBC’s decision… I don’t own any TV networks but I’m not a grudge type of person. I happen to be a talent. I think people recognize that. Whatever happens with the show moving forward, I’ll be just fine.”
