This isn’t the easiest time for Steve Harvey.
The comedian and family man was heavily criticized for speaking negatively about Asian men in a comedic bit recently, but it turns out there may be more where that came from. According to reports, Steve is actually in the process of stopping his old comedy routine from seeing the light of day, because he allegedly makes some racially insensitive comments in it.
From Daily Mail:
The comedian is fighting Joseph Cooper in federal court in Dallas. Cooper and Harvey started working together in 1993 when Harvey hired him to film his comedy shows.
Cooper claims he has 120 hours worth of footage of Harvey performing at his club Steve Harvey Comedy House. This footage reportedly shows Harvey spewing racially insensitive remarks.
The site continues:
Cooper filed the lawsuit for breach of contact with damages amounting to $10million, forcing Harvey to meet him in the Dallas court on January 23. In one of the tapes, Harvey allegedly exclaims: ‘I don’t give a s**** about America,’ according to Radar Online. In another, he reportedly tells the audience to: ‘Go assault old white women.’
Steve Harvey is reportedly claiming no contract could have been breached, because no contract was ever signed. Thoughts?
