Was Justin Bieber one of the millions who witnessed Steve Harvey’s epic fail? After Steve crowned the wrong Miss Universe, JB posted a pic that totally mocked Steve’s major screw-up on Instagram. See the pic here!
Justin Bieber‘s “Sorry” has come to life! Steve Harvey, 58, made one of the biggest mistakes of his career when he wrongly named the Miss Universe winner on Dec. 20, revealing that it was actually Miss Philippines shortly after Miss Colombia had celebrated with the crown. Although Steve apologized endlessly, some people mocked Steve by saying it might be too late to say sorry — including Justin!
Not long after Steve’s flub left the world stunned, a meme of Justin began floating around the Internet. Someone photoshopped Steve’s head onto Justin’s body and included JB’s lyric, “Is it too late now to say sorry?” to mock the major mistake, and Justin couldn’t help but find it hysterical! While Justin recognized that he felt bad for Steve, The Biebs posted the meme to his own Instagram, captioning the pic, “It’s so sad but this is too funny had to post no disrespect.” We can’t really blame Justin…that meme is hilariously clever!
Apparently Steve doesn’t think it’s too late to say sorry, because he continues to do so on his social media accounts. As soon as he admitted to his error on live TV, Steve began profusely apologizing and taking full responsibility for the extremely awkward moment. After the show, Steve immediately took to Twitter to keep expressing his regret, along with sharing another apology on his Facebook page. He’s clearly feeling terrible!
No matter how much Steve apologizes, though, he has still received quite the backlash from some angry fans on Twitter. Justin likely didn’t help anything by posting his meme, but at least he said no disrespect! At least it’s making light of a horrifyingly awkward situation, right?
Plus, both Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines have spoken out about the incident, and they have no hard feelings toward Steve. “Everything happens for a reason, so I’m happy,” Miss Colombia said backstage. Miss Philippines even referred to the “very non-traditional crowning moment” as “very 2015”!
Miss Universe 2015 may not have ended the way Steve — or anyone, really — intended, but we give Steve props for handling it the best he could. Once he gets over the initial embarrassment, hopefully he’ll be able to laugh at the Bieber meme the same way Justin did!
