Social media users roast Steve Harvey over Miss Universe mix-up

Miss Universe 2015 Pageant host, Steve Harvey, mistakenly announced that Miss Colombia had won the 64th edition of the pageant broadcast live on the Fox Television Network before crowning the rightful 26-year-old actress and model from the Philippines on Sunday.

Ariadna Gutierrez Arévalo, 21, of Sincelejo, Colombia, had already been crowned by Miss Universe of 2014, Paulina Vega of Barranquilla, Colombia.

The 2014 beauty queen was forced to remove the crown, just moments after she’d placed it on Arévalo, giving it to Miss Philippines. Olivia Jordan, 27, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, finished third.

Steve Harvey went on Twitter to voice his apology but didn’t even get that right, naming Miss Philipinnes, Miss Philippians.
