Wow! Steve Harvey Tells Flint Resident: "Enjoy your nice brown glass of water"

Steve Harvey has been getting hella side eye lately!

Not only has the TV host/comedian publicly supported Little Hands Bish (Donald Trump), but now he's throwing shots at Michigan, Flint residents.

While arguing with a caller during his morning show on WBLS 107.5, Steve mocked the Flint water crises when he told a local resident to enjoy their "nice brown glass of water."

"You from Flint?" Steve asked, according to listener accounts of the interaction. "That's why y'all ain't even got clean water. When was the last time you touched water and it didn't have lead in it?"

One listener began recording the radio show after that comment. You can hear co-hosts laughing and telling Harvey to "reel it in" after what he just said.

"I wasn't talking about the city of Flint, I was talking about him," Steve responded. "He going to call in, say Cleveland don't deserve jack, and he over there bathing in all that silver water."

The caller stayed on the line and Steve also said "one more thing. ... Enjoy your nice brown glass of water," to the shock of his co-hosts.

Listen to the audio below:

How ironic is it that Steve recently posted this positive message on his Twitter page: 

But, I guess it's okay to insult Flint residents, right?
