Steve Harvey: That Joke Was Not Worthy Of That Reaction!!

Steve Harvey also believes Will Smith overreacted at the Oscars.

“I understand defending the honor of your wife, I’m that dude. … He didn’t do that. That joke was not worthy of the reaction,” Harvey om his Steve Harvey Morning Show. “If he was gonna have a reaction, I think that Will should have done the man thing, which is step to him afterwards in that press room. And if he wanted to slap Chris then, he could have slapped Chris in the press room and seen how it went.”

Harvey also thinks Smith found the joke funny.

“See, he laughed at the joke until he saw Jada’s reaction,” Harvey said. “But now, let me tell you something. That’s a Hollywood move now to go up there on national TV, slap another Black man, turn around … and walk off because you know he can’t do nothing.”

Is Will Smith more Hollywood than Philly these days?
