Steve Harvey is apologizing.
The Steve Harvey Show host tweeted out that he is sorry after racist jokes he made about Asian men on a recent episode sparked major backlash on social media.
"I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community, last week," the 60-year-old TV host tweeted. "It was not my intention and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever."

The segment in question aired on Jan. 6, and featured Harvey mocking a 15-year-old book, titled, How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men.
"'Excuse me, do you like Asian men?'" Harvey suggested the book should read. "'No, thank you.'"
"I don't even like Chinese food, boy. I don’t stay with you no time," Harvey went on, imitating a female voice. "I don’t eat what I can’t pronounce."
Meanwhile, Harvey's apology comes days after his meeting with President-elect Donald Trump, which the comedian tweeted was born out of President Barack Obama's call for unity in the aftermath of a bitterly fought election.
