Comedian Steve Harvey responded to a CNN panelist who labeled him a “mediocre negro” for visiting President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower last Friday.
“A lot of y’all hurt me. I didn’t expect the backlash to be so vicious,” the Family Feud host stated on his radio show Monday.
“But I also understand that… If I’m going to keep getting stabbed at, then at least while you’re stabbing me, you should understand my intent for even taking the meeting in the first place. I’m from the hood. I’ve been trying to do my part for years for boys and girls.”
On Monday, CNN’s Marc Lamont Hill went off the rails when he labeled black Trump-supporting celebrities “mediocre negroes.”
Harvey’s wife Marjorie came to his defense saying that “Doing the right thing sometimes isn’t popular.”
