Steve Harvey Blasted For Making A Horrible Joke About The Flint Water Crisis [VIDEO]
Steve Harvey got into it with a caller while discussing the 2017 NBA Finals on his radio show.

Harvey took things way too far when he made a sick joke about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Fans have taken to social media to blast the comedian for the tasteless joke.

Harvey was angry about the Cleveland Cavaliers losing the NBA finals, suggesting Cleveland deserved the win more than the Oakland Golden State Warriors. 

A man called into the radio show and offended the host by stating that "Cleveland didn’t deserve jack.”

Harvey responded by asking, "You from Flint? That's why y'all ain't even got clean water. When was the last time you touched water and it didn't have lead in it?"

Harvey went off on the caller saying “He gonna call in and say Cleveland don’t deserve jack and he over their bathing in all that silver water.”
Couldn't have done this without y'all! The Steve Harvey Morning Show on @iheartradio is now heard on 100 stations! Thank YOU for listening. #steveharveymorningshow
Steve's co-hosts laughed but quietly suggested he should apologize and move on front the touchy subject. However, Steve stood his ground and said that he wasn’t dissing the entire city of Flint, simply just the caller. 

Harvey did not seem to realize that the caller was still on the line and went after him again, stating, "one more thing." The man replied, "go ahead."

Steve then proceeds to tell the man to "enjoy your nice brown glass of water."

You can hear the exchange at the 1:25 mark:

Steve's tasteless joke didn't go over well with fans and they weighed in on social media:

Harvey's followers took to his Instagram page and commented on one of his photos about the tasteless joke. 
Follower debow04 wrote, "No longer a Fan. I can not believe you said those horrible things about Flint. Born and raised there, I pray everyday for my family and friends that still live there. One being my father. With all the blessings you have been given. You should have known better. You are classless!"

And karelynej12 commented, "Keeping it 100..to make a joke about the Flint crisis and having brown water on your radio station is not cool. Some things should be left alone especially when people are suffering because of it. God can give and take away...."
