Comedians often cross the line. Sometimes, the lines they cross make the joke that much edgier, and there are other times when they are flat out offensive. One person who is now feeling the brunt of controversy is comedian Steve Harvey. Harvey’s joke with a listener about the Flint water situation has left people feeling that he is insensitive and cold toward his supporters. According to MLive.com:

A user on Facebook recorded the aftermath of the conversation. In the video the words Steve Harvey could be seen on the vehicle’s radio screen.

Harvey’s co-hosts could be heard telling him that he should apologize.

“I wasn’t talking about the city of Flint,” Harvey told his co-hosts, “I was talking about him.”

Harvey continued on to say, “He gone call in and say Cleveland don’t deserve jack and he over their bathing in all that silver water.”

The caller was still on the line at this point and told Harvey he was Dee from Flinttown.

Before taking the next caller Harvey told the caller there was “one more thing.”

“Go ahead,” the caller said.

“Enjoy your nice brown glass of water,” Harvey said.
