Steve Harvey defends Flint water joke following attack from city Mayor
Steve Harvey defends Flint water joke following attack from city Mayor.
Harvey poked fun at a Flint resident, who called into his U.S. morning radio talk show earlier this week (beg12Jun17) to criticise the comic’s beloved Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team following their loss in the NBA Finals.
"You from Flint?"
"That’s why y’all ain’t even got clean water.
Harvey later defended his jab, insisting it was directed at the caller and not Flint, adding, "I wasn’t talking about the city of Flint, I was talking about him.
Enjoy your nice brown glass of water."
The city locals have been suffering illness and death since 2014, when officials began using the Flint River as a drinking water source.
I also pressed then-(presidential) candidate, Hillary Clinton, to offer solutions to what I called one of the great catastrophes of modern times.
Any attempts to craft this into anything more serves no one."
