Steve Harvey Catches Heat After Making Jokes About The Flint Water Crisis

Steve Harvey is no stranger to controversy, but his latest jokes about the Flint Water Crisis may have crossed the line.

Harvey got a caller from Flint this morning who was bragging about the Warriors winning the NBA Championship.  Steve started to blast the caller, when he made remarks about the Flint Water Crisis.

His co-hosts stepped in and tried to backtrack, but Harvey had to have the last word.

When he was getting ready to hang up with the caller, he told him to, “Enjoy your nice brown glass of water.”  You can hear the comment at about 1:20 into the video. If you listen closely, you can hear other Flint Water Crisis remarks in the conversation as well.

To be completely honest with you, I’m not a huge fan of Steve Harvey.  I know people that absolutely despise the man, but I’ve never been anything more than indifferent toward him . . . until now.

Harvey is someone who should be championing a cause to help Flint, not making jokes to demean someone from Flint that disagrees with him.  The whole altercation started over an opinion on the NBA Finals, and turned into an ugly, ignorant comment.  I don’t think this will lead to anything more than an apology from Harvey, but it’s definitely ended my thoughts of him being any kind of celebrity.
