Steve Harvey says he now regrets remarks he made during his heated convo with Mo’Nique on the “Steve Show.”
The comedian and talk show host got so wound up while telling Mo how she’s wrong…he began to expose himself.
At one point in their convo, Steve told the Oscar-winning actress she has to set her integrity aside when there’s money on the table.
Steve Harvey told Mo’Nique:
We black out here! We can’t come out here and do it any kind of way we want to.
Your husband can’t be the Sidney that he really is out here!
This the money game! This not the black man’s game. This ain’t the white man’s game. This the money game! We’re in the money game and you cannot sacrifice yourself!
The best thing you can do for poor people is not be one of them! You gotta help them, Mo!
I cannot for the sake of my integrity, stand up here and let everybody that’s counting on me crumble so I can make a statement!
After getting dragged on social media, Steve Harvey is now telling People he regrets his choice of words and he’s always been a man of integrity.
I take full responsibility for it, it came out my mouth, so I can’t say that I didn’t say it.
But to people that really know me, I have lived my whole life as a man of integrity. So when I was referring to ‘integrity’ in that interview, I was talking about the method in which things were being done, and that is all it was.
I never questioned anybody’s principles or anybody’s causes. I was merely questioning, for the 50-minute interview, the method that she chose going about doing it — and I regret that looking back at it now, because that was a bad choice of words.
I shouted out and it happened, I regret it, but I want young people, the kids that come to my camps, the young people that I mentor, the fans that really respect me, to know to just charge that one to my head and not to my heart.
Because in my heart, that is not what I have asked anyone to do. I have lived my whole life as a man of integrity, and I will stand on that, but I was really just talking about the method that they went about doing what they did, and that was it.
Mo’Nique shared a clip on social media about “selling out” after her convo with Steve and I had to let it marinate in my spirit.
This clip also resurfaced and was making its rounds on social media.
Steve Harvey’s integrity has been under question for quite some time now…
