Steve Harvey is always a hilarious host on Family Feud — but recent jokes he made on his own daytime talk show are nothing to laugh about.
On Friday’s Steve Harvey Show, the comedian was poking fun at the titles of self help books when he decided to take a few jabs at Asian men!
The moment came when Harvey jested over the title of a 2002 book entitled How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men.
Instead of making fun of the book’s title for being patronizing and sexist, the 59-year-old found humor in anyone finding an Asian man attractive at all!
After laughing hysterically at the book’s title, Harvey said the book would contain just one page. Imagining what the book’s contents were, he quipped:
“‘Excuse me, do you like Asian men?’ No, thank you.”
Then he just laughs and laughs at the idea of anyone being attracted to Asian men at all!
Wow. Just, wow. (And clearly, he’s never seen Steven Yeun in The Walking Dead.)
Though Harvey wasn’t finished with his racist bit — he followed it up by wondering what a book called How to Date a Black Woman: A Practical Guide [for] Asian Men would say, joking:
“Same thing. ‘You like Asian men?’… ‘I don’t even like Chinese food…‘”
Yikes. Watch the awkward bit go down (below)!
