Oh, Steve…

Here we are again, wondering why Steve Harvey was allowed to become a best-selling author of two “Think Like A Man” books that spawned two successful “Think Like A Man” movies.

It’s truly mind-blowing, especially when you realize he rocked baggy 27-button suits at the height of his ‘Relationship Expert’ era.

With boot cut, church slacks, and a slew of talk shows came legendary amounts of audacity from the thrice-divorced comedian who explained why men and women can’t be friends in a resurfaced clip from 2010 currently trending on social media.

The clip is of an interview that Harvey did on CNN’s Face To Face with Fredricka. In the snippet, the 64-year-old comedian claims that men are “incapable” of having a platonic friendship with women.

“He’s your friend only because you have made it absolutely clear that nothing else is happening except this friendship we have” the Family Fued host explains.

“We remain your friends in hopes that one day there’ll be a crack in the door, a chink in the armor. And trust and believe that guy that you think is just your buddy, he will slide in that crack the moment he gets the opportunity, cuz were guys” he adds.

There’s a lot wrong with Harvey’s decade-old relationship take, and Twiter wasted no time flaming him for his comments.

Now, this isn’t the first or millionth time anyone has said this but it’s the way he said it that ruffled feathers.

But, then again, it IS Steve Harvey–a living, breathing shenanigan–who finally conceded to liking his daughter’s boo Michael B. Jordan.

“You know what, I have tried not to like him,” Harvey said in a recent interview with Ellen.

I have tried to find something wrong with him that I could dig in and go — ’cause I done got rid of all of ’em. All of ’em. Some of them snuck in the back door on me and lasted a lot longer than I wanted it to.

“But this guy, is such a good guy, man. He is one of the nicest guys. I’ve met his father. I’ve sat up with him, we’ve talked for hours. I just can’t find nothing wrong with him!”

Steve went on to say that he’s “hoping this lasts” because “this is a really, really good guy”…and because “I can’t whoop him.”

“Most guys I say I can jump on ’em and take ’em out, but he just looks like a real ass-whooping in the making. So I’m just hoping they make it, you know,” he said, jokingly.
