What You Didn’t Know About The Steve Harvey Miss Universe Mistake

As we all know by now Steve Harvey undoubtedly made (what will go down in history) one of the biggest live television mistakes on Sunday when he wrongly crowned Miss Colombia as the winner at the Miss Universe Pageant.

Racism showed it’s ugly face as tweets were being sent out all across twitter (see below).

Many speculations were made against the host claiming that he was drinking before the show and could of possibly been drunk.  However on Tuesday, Mark Shapiro, the chief content officer of WME IMG (the company that owns the Miss Universe Organization), told the Jim Rome Show that he’d love to have Steve Harvey come back next year. In case anyone forget, we all make mistakes.

“He was funny, he was informative, he’s high energy, he’s got a great following,” Shapiro said of the 58-year-old comedian. “I definitely want him back, and I would hate to see him not come back. He’s going to want a shot to redeem himself.”

Shapiro went on to say,  “The world forgives, the world forgets, It could happen to the best of us. He was so well intended, and he’s such a good guy, and it was really such a mistake that I hope people don’t hold this over him other than for just a good laugh and let it pass.”

While many may have been scratching their head as to why they would invite him back we may know why.  According to a now deleted snap chat video from the Miss Universe story, Steve Harvey was seen talking to the producers saying that the teleprompter read Miss Colombia as the winner.

While we still don’t know if this is actually true or not, it may exactly be the reason why he was invited back to host next year.
