Social media timelines were flooded on Sunday night with reactions to Steve Harvey accidentally crowning the wrong contestant as Miss Universe.
But while hundreds of Twitter users slammed Harvey for the mix-up, there were several who actually came to the talk show host’s defense, including Magic Johnson and comedian, DL Hughley.
“Steve Harvey made a mistake tonight,” Magic wrote. “We’ve all made mistakes in our careers & lives. @IAmSteveHarvey keep the faith and keep going strong.”
Hughley tweeted: “It’s ironic if u name the wrong country at a pageant ur ridiculed, if u name the wrong country at a GOP debate ur the front runner! #TeamDl.”
Al Roker also had the comedian’s back, tweeting:
“Live TV is tough and mistakes happen.@IAmSteveHarvey took responsibility and nobody got hurt. Nobody better.”
Dennis Rodman even took to Twitter to sound off against all the Harvey haters.
“Hold your head up @iamSteveHarvey! We all make mistakes. And everyone who’s in the Miss Universe pageant is already a winner.”
Harvey apologized on Sunday night for the mistake which pageant judge, Niecy Nash says was “handled beautifully.”

Jenifer Lewis is already a riot … but add a crazy circumstance plus an amped up fan and the interaction is pure gold.
While at the NAACP Image Awards HH chatted with the black-ish actress about her experience with racism in Hollywood. Lewis, who is a legend in La La Land, was giving us an animated answer about how she didn’t have time to worry about losing roles because of her skin color, that is until a fan excitedly interrupted her. Not once, but twice!
Ms. Lewis handled the situation like a pro — but also added a side of shade — and the whole encounter ended up being funny as h*ll!
