Steve Harvey apologizes for offensive joke about Asian men
The comedian tweeted an apology on Tuesday
Steve Harvey has apologized for an offensive joke he made about Asian men last week.
“Wanted to share this today,” Harvey tweeted on Tuesday, along with a screenshot of the Notes app where he had written a short apology: “I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community, last week. It was not my intention and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever.”
Flipping through dating books on the Jan. 6 episode of his talk show, Harvey joked that How to Date White Women: A Practical Guide for Asian Men would just be one page. The comment drew much criticism, including from Fresh Off the Boat creator Eddie Huang.
Harvey released a statement about his meeting with Trump last week in a similar fashion.
