Steve Harvey is under fire on Twitter for a racist monologue he did on his television show against Asian men. His timing could have been better. In two weeks, he will once again host Miss Universe pageant, hopefully sober this time. To make it worse, the pageant is being held in the Philippines, an island nation packed with Asian men.
Harvey began making fun of self help books including one titled ‘How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men.’ Harvey asked the audience if they liked Asian men and then did a fake oriental bow twice, saying “No, thank you.” He got a mixed reaction from the crowd with some laughing and some with looks of disapproval.
He then came up with his own book title, ‘How to Date a Black Woman: A Practical Guide to Asian Men.’ Harvey then followed up with:
‘That’s one page too! You like Asian men? I don’t even like Chinese food.’
‘It don’t stay with you no time. I don’t eat what I can’t pronounce.’
Harvey then doubled up in laughter again.
Harvey hosted the event last year, during which he managed to deliver what might have been one of the most memorable pageant moments of all time.
With just two contestants left in the competition, Harvey announced that the winner of the crown was Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez.
As soon as he said those words Gutierrez broke down in tears while she was handed a giant bouquet of flowers and the crown was placed on her head.
Unfortunately, Harvey called out the wrong name of the winner, who was actually Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach.
Lest you question whether Harvey is a racist or not, consider this. When he returns from the Philippines, Harvey has to appear in a Texas court over racist rants against whites. A former employee has produced tapes in which Harvey told black audiences to spit on white people and to assault old white women. The tapes with the racism against whites is 120 hours long, so it appears hating whites is a recurring theme.
