During Sunday night’s Miss Universe competition in Las Vegas, the host called out Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the highly publicized competition. ” The attention comes after Miss Universe went through some big changes earlier this year.
” On Sunday night, before Harvey’s gaffe, Trump tweeted that his “friend,” WME-IMG co-CEO Ari Emanuel, bought the pageant from him. Unfortunately, a live telecast means that human error can come into play.
We witnessed that when the wrong winner was initially announced.
Our sincerest apologies to Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutiérrez Arévalo, Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, their families and fans.
We congratulate Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach as Miss Universe 2015,” the company said in a statement.
Please don’t hold it against the ladies.” Harvey went on to say sorry on his Twitter, writing, “I’d like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. Secondly, I’d like to apologize to the viewers at that I disappointed as well. “I don’t want to take away from this amazing night and pageant,” he went on. They were all amazing.” He tweeted a similar apology earlier, but misspelled the names of both countries, so the message was quickly deleted.
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 @Real Donald Trump when you need em?” UPDATE: On Monday morning, Donald Trump weighed in again via Twitter, reminding people that he sold the franchise earlier this year “for a record price” and claiming under his ownership, “This would never have happened! Meanwhile, IMG issued another mea culpa on Monday morning: “The excitement of live TV was evident last night on the Miss Universe stage with more than 10 million live fan votes tabulated.On his TV show, Steve Harvey gave sound dating advice to a father and his 15-year-old daughter, suggesting that the father was “on the right track" in how he was protecting his daughter. You could give me some great advice.”Steve Harvey: “Yeah. I kid you not, I tell every boy that comes to my house, ‘Listen to me, you can take my daughter out, but everything you do to her, I’m going to do to you.’“So I always say, ‘If I look outside, and ya’ll kissing really hard, when you come in here, me and you are going to kiss real hard.’“You are on the right track. So, holding him close from behind in that photo, that lets him know.“See, he’s so uncomfortable. During Steve Harvey’s shows, guests are allowed to “Ask Steve” for advice. She may not like it, but she’ll grow to appreciate it.“You know, are you okay with it? One father did just that, asking Steve Harvey, a father of four, for advice on how he should be handling his daughter’s dating life. Yeah, that’s how I like it.”Father: “Well, he recently sent me a text message wishing me happy birthday, and now I’m trying to think: Is he trying to butter me up?
