“That don’t even make no damn sense,” he continued. “My whole brand is to be motivational, and I’mma turn around a say something like that? You don’t know where these young people [are] at in they career, man. They could be coming up or anything. I’m all about positivity; I would’ve never done nothing like that.”

“Okay, okay, you trying to get some employment, too,” Steve continued. “My bad, y’all. Now I gotta come on here and do a damn selfie. So here it is: I’m sorry, man. My bad, y’all. [It] won’t happen again, though.”
Steve Harvey fans on social media ask him to forgive his employee for this incident and give him a second chance.
“Don’t fire them Steve, just hold them accountable and let it be a teaching tool. Especially, if they have never done anything like that before,” one user wrote.
“@IAmSteveHarvey, if this is not the usual behavior from that person, allow them some ‘grace’ the same grace you have taught us over the years that God extend to us all,” added another.
