Steve Harvey has long been notorious for saying stupid things.
Emmy Award-winning TV host and best-selling author Steve Harvey advises women not to date atheists because you don’t know where the man’s “moral barometer” is, and says that as far as someone not believing in God, “well, then, to me you’re an idiot.”
Harvey, who also hosts a radio show and started his career in stand-up comedy, went on to say that Darwinism is essentially nonsense because he doesn’t think the universe “spun out of a gastrous ball and then all of a sudden we were evolved from monkeys.” If that were true, he says, then “why we still got monkeys?”
Yep, that’s his argument, the dumbest argument against evolution ever…although at least he spiced it up with that “gastrous ball” comment. So now I am full of schadenfreude at his latest gaffe.
Harvey was hosting the Miss Universe pageant, and at the final moment, when it’s down to two contestants, one of whom will win honor and glory and vast power as the Queen of the Universe (that’s what this pageant is about, right?), he screwed up horribly. It was to be either Miss Colombia or Miss Philippines, and Harvey announced the wrong one, live on broadcast television. Miss Colombia was given the flowers, the banner, the diamond-encrusted tiara of invincible power, and was happily giving her queenly waves to the cheering crowd, when Harvey had to stand up and declare his horrible mistake. Then followed one of the most uncomfortable moments in television as Miss Columbia is stripped of her honors, and they’re given to Miss Philippines, standing there not sure what she’s supposed to do.
Steve Harvey, idiot.
As if that weren’t enough, Harvey later sent an apologetic tweet to Miss Columbia and Miss Philippians.
He’s got to be in the running for Dumbest Man in Show Business. I sure hope the announcer doesn’t make a mistake when naming the winner. It would be so awkward for Shia LaBeouf to have to stand there while the bladder on a stick was taken away and given to Harvey.
