And that City’s Mayor wants an apology from the syndicated morning man. Last week, Harvey got into a heated debate with a caller over the Cleveland Cavaliers (Harvey is a Cavs fan). Harvey told the caller to “enjoy your nice brown glass of water.” As everyone knows, Flint has had water problems for years. Mayor Karen Weaver sent a letter to Harvey asking for an apology.
Here’s a statement Harvey sent to the press which was part of the Detroit Free Press story on the Harvey rant…
“This morning callers and I were cracking jokes about the Cleveland Cavaliers loss to the Golden State Warriors. I’m a huge Cavs fan. The caller and I were talking trash about our teams and cities. “SIMPLY TRASH TALKING ABOUT SPORTS”. I made a joke directed at him, as he is from Flint, a city for which I have great affection and respect. So much so that I devoted a full hour on my daytime talk show to raising awareness for the Flint water crisis. I also pressed then candidate, Hilary Clinton, to offer solutions to what I called one of the great catastrophes of modern times. The and the caller laughed as my joke was taken in the context it was offered.”
