It’s not a laughing matter after all is it Mr. Steve Harvey?
Steve Harvey told a Flint caller to “enjoy your nice brown glass of water” on his radio show Wednesday.
And Flint is not happy about it.
Mayor Karen Weaver sent a letter Thursday to Harvey, the comedian and “Family Feud” host, after hearing about his comments on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” drawing ire from many people on social media after an audio recording was posted.
“As Mayor of the City of Flint, and someone who has been on your show and spoken with you personally about the Flint Water Crisis, I was deeply saddened by your comments about our city. While I feel it was not meant to be an intentional hurt or insult against the citizens of this community, it was.
“We are still going through many hardships and challenges caused by the poisoning of our city. To make a joke out of a tragedy such as this was in very poor taste, especially coming from someone of your stature.
“While we are making progress in replacing lead tainted service lines, we still have to use filters and remain on bottled water. As Mayor, I would appreciate, on behalf of the citizens of this community, a public apology. I would love to sit and discuss with you the status of where we are today.”
