It has been weeks since Steve Harvey accidentally crowned the wrong Miss Universe. We can all laugh about it now, right? You would think so, but Steve Harvey recently revealed that he has received death threats for the little mishap. In a two-day special on his talk show, Harvey invited the actual Miss Universe, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, and the runner-up, Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, to clear the air about that night’s events. During the special, he asked Miss Colombia for her honest feedback and she obliged, answering honestly, “You have to learn how to read cards, because it was on the card!”
Harvey went on to address the accusations that the mistake was a publicity stunt: “Like I’m going to do that to myself! My family got death threats, I have people camped outside my house. My kids can’t go anywhere.” The comedian, once again, expressed his deep remorse for the mistake. Miss Universe, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, said on the show, “Steve, don’t beat yourself up anymore, let’s move forward.”
