We all make mistakes! As host of the Miss Universe pageant Sunday night in Las Vegas, Steve Harvey announced Miss Colombia was the winner… but then he realized he had made a mistake, and she was actually the first runner-up. It was Miss Philippines who should have been crowned.
Steve Harvey took full ownership of the mistake, stating that he read the card wrong, and that it was an honest mistake and still a beautiful night.
The talk show host also took to Twitter to apologize and got some backlash for mistakenly spelling Philippians instead of the Philippines. Philippians is the eleventh book in the New Testament. Paul and Timothy first visited Philippi, in Greece, during Paul’s second missionary journey, which occurred between approximately 49 and 51 AD. Steve, who we know loves God, once again made a mistake.
Steve later fixed the tweet:
I’d like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible.
