Steve Harvey Defends Wife Marjorie After Use of 'R' Word Sparks Backlash

Steve Harvey is defending his wife Marjorie Harvey after she used the R-word, a term that is considered offensive.

In a video, Marjorie, 53, and Steve, 61, were cooking when she said, “I’m sitting here arguing with my husband, ’cause clearly he thinks I’m r—–ed [and] I don’t know how to cut a beet.”

The video sparked a ton of backlash, and Steve soon took to the comments to make his thoughts known.

Steve wrote, “What you trippin bout cause my wife said the word r—–ed…it’s a word ain’t it?” he commented on the post. “And she ain’t talking bout nobody but herself to me … What she was doing was just that and she ain’t saying it bout nobodies baby… I don’t ever comment but [damn] is you just looking for something to be pissed off about cause we ain’t… and I wrote it r—–ed. NAH!!”

Marjorie also responded to Steve’s comment, and you can see her response in the gallery.

    Did he have to use such poor grammar to get his point across?

  • M9365

    I didn’t even know what the “R” word was.

  • KS_in_TP

    WTF is the word?? Are we all a bunch of 2 year olds now, we can’t just type out bad words??

  • KS_in_TP

    Ohhhh “retarded”. Why is this not spelled out??

  • Athomemom

    Seriously? If you Google the word, “retarded”, there are 2 definitions: “1. less advanced in mental, physical, or social development than is usual for one’s age. 2. very foolish or stupid” If someone is acting very foolish or stupid, it is perfectly acceptable to refer to that person’s behavior as retarded. Those who are taking offense need to learn that the word, retarded, has more than one meaning.

  • Athomemom

    I guess it’s so horrible, spelling it out may cause someone harm, kind of like Voldemort, aka, the one who shall not be named.

  • KS_in_TP

    It’s so fucking ridiculous.
