By Zach Seemayer
Steve Harvey knows how to own a mistake. The comedian took to Twitter on Sunday -- after Miss District of Columbia Deshauna Barber was crowned the new Miss USA -- to poke fun at his own Miss Universe blunder back in December.
"Soooooooo - I was a few months early with my announcement and forgot "District of," Harvey tweeted, referring to his infamous mistake of incorrectly naming Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutiérrez, the new Miss Universe, before having to admit that he'd misspoken and the real winner was Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach.
Soooooooo - I was a few months early with my announcement and forgot "District of". 🤔🤔🤔
In the short bit, Harvey is helping Terrence prep for his hosting gig by handing him a card with the words "and the winner is Miss Colombia," which Harvey smacks out of his hands immediately.
"What did I just tell you?" Harvey scolds Terrence. "I said, 'Don't say Miss Colombia.' I don't care if they hand you a card-- they handed me the card. I said it. When they hand you the card, don't say, 'Miss Colombia.'"
