Steve Harvey made a few offensive jokes about Asians that he may want to take back immediately.

While mocking self-help books on his daily talk show, the comedian and TV personality took issue with the idea that there are women out there who like Asian men.

As the Angry Asian Man blog put it, “The book is moronic, and deserving of all the ridicule it has received over the years. But Harvey doesn’t devote too much time making fun of the book. Instead, he sets his sights broadly on Asian men and gleefully mocks the seemingly outrageous notion that anyone, white or otherwise, would want to go out with an Asian men. “That’s one page too!” Harvey says. “‘Excuse me, do you like Asian men?’ No. ‘Thank you.’ How to Date a Black Woman: A Practical Guide [for] Asian Men. Same thing. ‘You like Asian men?’ I don’t even like Chinese food. It don’t stay with you no time… I don’t eat what I can’t pronounce.”
