Steve Harvey Apologizes For Asian Men Jokes
Steve Harvey is apologizing for for jokes that he made about Asian men. As previously reported, the TV host/comedian did a segment poking fun of self-help books, that included making jokes about Asian men. One included a book titled How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men. While discussing the book, Harvey clowned the thought that a white woman would find Asian men attractive. He joked,
Excuse me, do you like Asian men? No. Thank you.
He then joked that black women wouldn’t be attracted to Asian men, either.
How to Date a Black Woman: A Practical Guide to Asian Men. Same thing. You like Asian men? I don’t even like Chinese food. It don’t stay with you no time … I don’t eat what I can’t pronounce.
See the clip.
He has since had a change of heart, tweeting this:
humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community.
