Steve Harvey is under fire for derogatory comments he made about Asian men on his daytime talk show. The comedian was discussing a book titled “How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men” when he remarked that no woman of any race wants to date an Asian.

Folks on social media were quick to challenge Mr. Harvey for the segment:
“It is not nice to see minorities that tirelessly complain of racism from the White population ditching it out too. Mr. Steve, you should be ashamed of yourself. What a pitiful moron,” someone commented on YouTube.
“As an Asian person growing up in SoCal, I have faced more racism and discrimination from black people growing up than from white people. The tension of the LA Riots certainly didn’t help. But black people always picked on me or others and it only made us angrier and it fueled the Asian gangs here and almost led me to joining an Asian gang once,” another user noted.
“Shame I’m Asian and I loved Steve Harvey but after seeing this video I can truly see what kind of person he really is,” one former fan remarked.
As of Thursday morning, Mr. Harvey is yet to apologize for the remarks.
