Just before the end of the year, Steve Harvey managed to have the worst television moment of 2015.

 As host of the Miss Universe pageant Sunday night in Las Vegas, he called out Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the highly publicized Miss Universe 2015 competition. Except Gutierrez wasn’t the winner. Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was. Miss Colombia was actually the first runner-up.

As if that wasn't bad enough, a regretful Harvey went and angered the Internet even more by posting this tweet that has since been deleted:



You'll notice he misspelled both "Colombia" and "Philippines."

Unsurprisingly, Twitter exploded almost immediately with viewers taking jabs at Harvey’s expense. Some, however, defended him. Earvin Magic Johnson tweeted, “Steve Harvey made a mistake tonight, we’ve all made mistakes in our careers & lives. @IAmSteveHarvey keep the faith and keep going strong!”

Steve has now apologized again with an official statement.

The attention comes after Miss Universe went through some big changes earlier this year. Donald Trump and NBCUniversal owned the competition, but they parted ways after Trump’s presidential campaign garnered controversy, and WME/IMG took control of Miss Universe. Trump took time to revel in Harvey’s mistake, retweeting someone who wrote, “Where’s @RealDonaldTrump when you need em?”

The pageant was held at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Is not something that should have happened but it does happen, you could imagine Miss Colombia in a min fame Lol and shame that follow afterwards, and hatred Miss Philippine and all the Philippine's at home will pure on that man for trying to divert their crown to someone else even though its a mistake, it coursed a serious pain on both side, nobody is above mistake but is has been recorded already.

Or did Miss Colombia give that man special treat at night Lol
