Just weeks after his demand letter to staff made rounds on the internet, Steve Harvey gifted Twitter with another reason to rip into him.
The TV host and comedian is being roasted on Twitter for comments he made Wednesday about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan during a radio interview on the "Steve Harvey Morning Show."
A caller dialed into the show during a discussion about the 2017 NBA finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Though Golden State won the championship, Harvey sided with Cleveland, to which the caller insisted the Cavaliers didn't "deserve jack."
Harvey stood up for the Cavs, but in turn, pissed off a ton of people for his comments about Flint.
"You from Flint? ... That's why y'all ain't even got clean water. When was the last time you touched water and it didn't have lead in it?" Harvey said.
He continued: "I wasn't talking about the city of Flint, I was talking about him. ... He going to call in, say Cleveland don't deserve jack, and he over there bathing in all that silver water."
Of course, the show's co-hosts tried to cut Harvey off, but he managed to end the conversation with one last comment.
"And one more thing, enjoy your nice brown glass of water."
Moments after audio surfaced of the interview, Twitter ripped Harvey apart.

When Steve Harvey said that Flint water "joke" I immediately thought about him being one of Trump's "African American's." pic.twitter.com/YGSXJhmSFX— LEFT✍🏾 (@LeftSentThis) June 16, 2017
Even Flint Mayor Karen Weaver called out Harvey in a letter that suggested he should be releasing a public apology.
