Steve Harvey Stands By Flint Water Jokes


This week on the Steve Harvey Morning Show Steve Harvey told a Flint, MI resident to 'go drink a brown glass of water,' after they had a disagreement about the NBA Finals [click here if you missed that].

Steve stands by his words...

A statement released by Steve Harvey reads,
"This morning callers and I were cracking jokes about the Cleveland Cavaliers loss to the Golden State Warriors. I'm a huge Cavs fan."
"The caller and I were talking trash about our teams and cities."
'SIMPLY TRASH TALKING ABOUT SPORTS.'
"I made a joke directed at him, as he is from Flint, a city for which I have great affection and respect. So much so that I devoted a full hour on my daytime talk show to raising awareness for the Flint water crisis. I also pressed then candidate, Hilary Clinton, to offer solutions to what I called one of the great catastrophes of modern times."
"The and the caller laughed as my joke was taken in the context it was offered."
Any attempts to craft this into anything more serves no one."
-Steve Harvey

First of all, I come at this situation from the mind frame that NOTHING pertaining to the industry is organic. Even supposed "random" callers into a talk show... I'm quite sure anyone who has ever tried to call in to a radio station realizes how difficult it is to actually get through and be the caller who gets placed live on air.

Second of all, Steve is an old coon - he's been in this game for a long time now. So he's quite accustomed to the Hollywood rituals and sacrifices - but he's not above being made an example of nor being the subject of a humiliation ritual. From the old Kings of Comedy, I would never have thought that Steve Harvey would be the "last man standing". Personally, Bernie (#1) and Cedric were WAY more funny; but of those 4 men, Steve is the only name that's kept out there and is consistently prospering. Y'all think that is organic or by popular demand? Wrong! Steve is in this for the long haul and he's willing to do whatever "massa" instructs him to do to stay relevant and in their good graces. Little do these egotistical simpletons know, TPTB don't give a shit about them and are more than willing to indulge these fools and give them the rope by which they will hang themselves (case in point Pill Cosby).

Third, the thing about a joke is - there is a little bit of truth in every joke- that's what makes it funny. That and the ability of the joke teller to say the joke without being offensive. This "joke" was offensive because not only was it unfunny it was also cruel AND the person who told it is shady and a pompous asshole - so it's hard to reconcile the unfunny joke coupled with the popmus asshole it came from.

To me, (reading about it 2nd hand) it seemed mean and unnecessary. Steve is just showing how truly evil and flippant he is. Makes those stories about how he treated his staff members all the more believable.

@ 11:10 PM-- as I read through your comment, all I could see was his startled expression in his photo op with his meeting with Trump. Very telling.

Bernie tried to warn us about how satanic Hollywood is but Steve out an end to that. Steve is a high ranking warlock. You follow him and you are in league with demons.

Google what Malcolm X had to say about so-called black leaders and entertainers. Brother X was ahead of his time.

Great write up PrissaO. I agree with you 100%. I have never liked Steve Harvey. There is nothing funny about what's going on in Flint.

Prissa O for the win. There are NO coincidences in entertainment. No coincidence as to who gets promoted to the top. The BIGGER the sellout you are the HIGHER they will push you. Think about it.

The Black woman who was first to bring lawsuit about the Flint water, was found dead under mysterious circumstances, as was the person the leading the initial investigation of this corruption. Now five politicians have been brought up on manslaughter charges in Flint. This ish ain't funny. Steve Harvey is an illiterate (he can never pronounce even simple names in Family Fued) coon. He knows that joke was in poor taste, but a coon gotta coon to get his chump change from his masters.

I've never thought he was funny. And for the life of me I can't understand why take his relationship advice and buy his books about it.

This fool has been married 2 or 3 times. I'd rather get advice from someone that's been married to the same person for 20 or 30 years and how they made it work than from someone that gets a new wife every 7 years or so.
