Miss Universe 2019
Steve Harvey shocked audiences at home by making a joke about drug cartels when announcing that Miss Colombia Gabriela Tafur created the Top 20 in Sunday night’s Miss Universe 2019 pageant in Atlanta.
By making a reference to his error, when he incorrectly announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez won harvey began. Harvey, who hosted for the fifth consecutive year, made fun of himself for the error. Tafur combined in, joking,”Are you certain you read correctly? Should I go back? Tell me what to do!”
Tafur then seemed a little embarrassed by that answer, so she told Harvey,”You’re forgiven, don’t worry.”
“You’ve forgiven me [however ] the cartel hasn’t,” Harvey quickly replied, reports Entertainment Tonight.
“They are not handling it the same way.”
The comment sparked instant surprise from audiences at home who thought the joke was offensive. However, others noted that the bundle of Tafur showed how accomplished she is. In her movie, Tafur has fought which her nation struggles with and stated she is a lawyer.
“I enjoy how [Harvey] makes a joke regarding the cartel into [Miss Colombia] then cut into her package and she’s like’I’m a lawyer and have been fighting violence in my nation’ Get it woman. And Steve, sit down guy,” one viewer tweeted.
“Has [Harvey] actually been threaten by a Colombian cartel?” Another viewer wrote. “Can somebody clarify his’joke’ in [Miss Universe]? It’s not funny, it is offensive. Drugs have tainted us with pain and blood. Be respectful and Stop fretting about it Stop the ignorance!!!”
“The’joke’ which Steve Harvey stated twice concerning the Colombian cartel, is disrespectful and xenophobic. He should not be presenter never and you need to make him excuse to the Colombians!!!” Another wrote.
The Colombian cartel remark wasn’t the only contentious moment for Harvey this season. In addition, he declared the incorrect winner of the National Costume contest, which took place prior to the broadcast. Miss Malaysia Shweta Sekhon needed to inform Harvey that she had been real winner, not Miss Philippines.
Tafur made it on the Top 5. Miss South Africa Zozibini Tunzi was crowned Miss Universe 2019, together with Miss Puerto Rico Madison Anderson as the very first runner-up.
