Steve Harvey is facing some serious backlash for comments he made about the Flint Water crisis on his morning radio show after the Cleveland Cavaliers lost in game five of the NBA Finals to the Golden State Warriors.
Steve, who is a Cleveland fan, took a call from a man who said he was from Flint, who told Steve that Cleveland didn’t ‘deserve jack.’
That’s when Steve decided to go for the gut and make a distasteful joke about the caller’s lack of clean water due to the Flint Water crisis.
A listener recorded the aftermath of the conversation right after Steve’s initial joke — but it didn’t stop there. His co-hosts can be heard trying to get Steve back on track, but he doubled down on the offense and made one last dig.
“I wasn’t talking about the city of Flint,” Steve told his co-hosts, “I was talking about him.”
He continued on to say, “He gone call in and say Cleveland don’t deserve jack and he over their bathing in all that silver water.”
The caller was still on the line at this point and told Steve he was Dee from Flinttown.
Before taking the next caller Steve told the caller there was “one more thing.”
“Go ahead,” the caller said.
“Enjoy your nice brown glass of water,” Steve finished.
Now — Steve’s been cancelled since he started working with Donald Trump, but this just goes to show you the type of person he’s become.
