I’ve always felt like the odd man out on this one, but I’ve always DESPISED Steve Harvey.
His dumb bald head. His buck teeth. His accent. His general un-funniness. And yet, he’s f*cking everywhere. Award shows, talk shows, commercials, you name it, his dumb face is plastered on it.
If you watch TV on any given weekday between the hours of 11:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., you’ll probably see Steve Harvey forcing his eyeballs out of his head as he reacts to a contestant’s zany comment. Honestly, it makes me kind of nauseous to even think about.
And truthfully, I don’t even hate Harvey because of the whole Miss Universe thing — I could literally give a shit less — it’s everything ELSE that I hate about Steve Harvey. But before, it was a little difficult for me to justify my distaste. He’d never done anything legitimately wrong, and given the number of jobs he’s given, is clearly well liked.
But then he sent out this crazy town letter to his staff about ‘not bothering him’. And now he’s making jokes at the expense of people suffering through a legitimate tragedy, the Flint Water Crisis.
“I wasn’t talking about the city of Flint, I was talking about him,” Harvey said in response, adding, “He going to call in, say Cleveland don’t deserve jack, and he over there bathing in all that silver water.” Before the caller hangs up, Harvey makes sure to tell him “one more thing… Enjoy your nice brown glass of water.”

Steve Harvey, who has made a career out of sticking his foot in his big mouth, did it again Wednesday morning, when he mocked a resident of Flint, Michigan, who called into his morning show to discuss the Cleveland Cavaliers’ loss to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
Harvey, who is a Cleveland fan, took umbrage at the caller’s assertion that the Cavs didn’t “deserve jack” after their loss. According to one listener, Harvey used the Flint water crisis — the one that caused countless health issues for the city’s citizens and which one official has just been charged with manslaughter over — as a punchline for barbs directed at the caller.
So if this is your first time on Team F*ck Steve Harvey, welcome. We’ve been waiting for you. Our team is getting stronger by the day, and one day, there will be enough of us to get this ass clown off the air.
