Steve Harvey is the latest celeb to get a taste of how funny Twitter can be – too bad it was at his own expense.
After announcing the wrong winner of 2015 Miss Universe pageant, social media erupted, creating hilarious memes of the talk show host. Steve announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez-Arévalo as the winner – when in fact it was Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach.
Although no one is probably more embarrassed than Ariadna, Steve is the one who got flamed on social media.
Ariadna may not have gotten the jokes as bad as Steve, but she could be suffering from some trauma after the incident. According to Colombia’s Counsul General Maria Isabel Nieto, the mistake was extremely painful for Miss Colombia and will likely cause long-term issues. Nieto told TMZ it was not only psychological torture to have the crown taken away, but physically traumatizing to have it removed.
The President of the country even weighed in, saying, “For me, Miss Colombia is Miss Universe and will continue to be Miss Universe. They placed the crown on her, there is a photo, and for me as a Colombian, she will continue to be Miss Universe.”
We hope Ariadna feels better soon. In the meantime, check out her reaction and the memes that probably made host Harvey feel even worse.
