Steve Harvey has had a lot of side eye worthy moments over the years — but a couple of days ago he refused to give the typical canned & fake Hollywood response.
When asked if he saw the Bruce Jenner interview at the Daytime Emmy awards — Steve didn’t stick his foot in his mouth.
I mean look, everybody says it was the bravest thing they have ever seen — so that’s the politically correct thing to say. “I can’t wrap my mind around it at all — zero. I have no concept of what that means. Nothing negative, he has every right to live his life the way he wants to.
I can’t come in the house and make that announcement to my wife & children.
Steve went on to say that he would have Bruce on his show but Diane covered just about everything. He then said his wife told him he wouldn’t be able to do the Bruce interview because his face is to expressive.
Steve went on to win his second Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show/ Informative. And a couple of days ago he celebrated the 500th episode of Steve Harvey — quite the milestone in the ruthless talk show game.
A lot of people were genuinely supportive of Bruce but at the same time there was an insincere vibe due to fear of being poltically incorrect. Also a lot of people felt guilty for the non stop jokes about his appearance for over 20 years.
And as intolerant as this county has been towards those that are different, it was interesting to see the tide turn once a celebrity on Bruce’s level announced his transition.
