It looks like Steve Harvey is finally addressing comedian Katt Williams after his now infamous interview with Shannon Sharpe.
Williams recently had social media in an uproar after he called out his fellow comedians about being untruthful about their careers. In a certain part of the interviews, the “First Sunday” talked about Cedric the Entertainer stealing his jokes and went on to accuse Harvey of doing the same thing.
Williams claimed that TV personality stole the concept of his show “The Steve Harvey Show” from comedian Mark Curry’s show “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper.” If you recall Steve played a professional musician turned high school music teacher and principal. On his show, Curry played a former NBA player turned high school substitute gym teacher and coach.
“The same Steve that went to go watch Mark Curry do his whole sitcom and then stole everything Mark Curry had…Now Steve got a sitcom where he’s the principal and he wears a suit,” Williams said to Sharpe.
He continued, “You couldn’t be a movie star…There are 30,000 new scripts in Hollywood every year. Not one of them asked for a country bumpkin Black dude that can’t talk good … and looks like Mr. Potato Head. There ain’t none. You have to have range.”
At first, Harvey didn’t react to Williams’ claims, however, since the interview dropped Harvey shared a video of himself talking about how to address haters while he was on “Family Feud.”
It also seems that Harvey addressed the issue again on his morning radio show. “Be careful when you hear something that’s laid out to be the truth and because the person that’s telling you what they say is true is speaking eloquently, don’t be deceived by that. There are some people who know how to lie so well, they know how to sprinkle in just enough truth and wrap it inside their lies, where they got you thinking someone is telling the truth. Beware of those people.”
