Steve Harvey's iconic goof up last year regarding the Miss Universe winner seems to never leave him — but this time people are offended about something else.

When Miss Colombia Gabriela Tafur Náder made it to the stage while the Top 20 were being announced, she decided to make a casual joke about Harvey calling on Miss Colombia in 2015 as the winner, only to realize it was Miss Philippines all along who was the winner.

"Are you sure, should I go back?" Nader said, to which Harvey replied, "yes, look" before spelling out the country's name. Then, as Nader told him that she had forgiven him and so had everyone else, Harvey goes on to say, "Not the cartels. They've not". 

Twitter was super mad about the comment saying that there was no need for Harvey to go there. "Mexico and Colombia have a lot to offer. Your mention of the cartels and 'that'll get you killed' comments make you sound ignorant. You already look dumb enough with that jacket," one user said.

Another added, "Steve Harvey just mentioned the cartel while speaking of Columbia during the Miss Universe Pageant. Now that's not racist at all right? Double standards". One person tweeted, "Steve Harvey was a d*** mentioning the cartel when calling Miss Colombia."

Some fans found his comments disrespectful to Nader. "When you make the finals from Colombia and Steve Harvey references the cartel" shared one viewer while another added, "Steve Harvey saying the most racist shit to Ms. Columbia. If he was white twitter would explode."

Some people, however, found Nader's comment redundant too. "I'm not watching #MissUniverse2019 but I see all these comments about Steve Harvey making fun of miss Colombia and I'm like, are we not allowed to laugh at our mistakes and learn from them? I mean seriously people just leave him alone," said one user.
