Steve Harvey Attacked for Commenting on Poverty


Comedian and TV star Steve Harvey is facing criticism after giving his opinion on the issue of poverty.

According to The Daily Wire:

"The best thing you can do for poor people is not be one of them," Harvey told fellow comedian Mo'Nique during a Friday appearance on "The Steve Harvey Show."

...

"Before the money game, it's called the integrity game. And we've lost the integrity worrying about the money," Mo'Nique countered.

Harvey responded, "But, Mo': If I crumble, my children crumble, my grandchildren crumble. I cannot, for the sake of my integrity, stand up here and let everyone that's counting on me crumble so I can make a statement. There are ways to win the war in a different way."

Mo'Nique reacted by condemning Harvey as a "sell out" to his own people via Instagram, posting a video of Muhammad Ali and a clip of "Roots," a film about African slaves, with harsh captions directed at the "Family Feud" host.
