Steve Harvey Faces Internet Wrath After Calling Out Wrong Miss Universe Winner

The winner is... not Steve Harvey.

Poor Steve Harvey. Last night, the television personality and author hosted the Miss Universe pageant and made a major flub by calling out the wrong winner—Miss Colombia over Miss Philippines. Despite his apology, the Internet has not let him off the hook. 

“I'd like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible,” he tweeted quickly after the mistake happened. “Secondly, I'd like to apologize to the viewers at that I disappointed as well. Again it was an honest mistake” and “I don't want to take away from this amazing night and pageant. As well as the wonderful contestants. They were all amazing.”

One of the most popular memes has Steve taking on Justin Bieber with the lyrics, “Is it too late now to say sorry?” Another one has Steve mixing up Friday and Monday or giving Leonardo DiCaprio—who’s notoriously never won an Oscar—an award by accident.
