Steve Harvey has put his foot in his big mouth AGAIN!
The daytime host and comedian made some recent remarks on his eponymous talk show, that now has folks on social media pissed. On Tuesday a video surfaced online of Harvey lecturing his in-studio audience about success and according to him there’s no rest for the wealthy. Yep you read that right.
“Rich people don’t sleep eight hours a day!” the comedian said emphatically in a clip that has gone viral. “That’s a third of your life. It ain’t but 24 hours in a day. You cannot be sleep eight hours a day. You can’t live in L.A. and wake up at 8 o’ clock in the morning. It’s 11 o ‘clock on the east coast. The stock market [has] been open two hours. They already making decisions about your life and your a-s was sleep.”
The Steve Harvey Show posted his full “sermon” online titled “Get Outside of Your Comfort Zone” to help put the clip into context.
If you are reading this and have extraordinary aspirations, then you will have to go the extra mile for success. All of you have extraordinary capabilities, you have to decide if you are willing to get out of your comfort zone to get to the level of success that you aspire. pic.twitter.com/2Jj7sRvy2g

According to Harvey you have to go the extra mile to reach your dreams and sleep was just “an example” of something you have to give up to be successful.
Still, critics on social media were quick to call out his sleeping comments as nonsensical. Model Chrissy Teigen, whose net worth was estimated by Forbes to be more than $13 million, was one of them.
