How to Apologize to Asian Men: A Practical Guide for Steve Harvey.

The Family Feud host got a bit of heat last week for offensive jokes he made about Asian men on The Steve Harvey Show.

In case you were lucky enough to miss it, the comedian joked about a self-help book called How to Date White Women: A Practical Guide for Asian Men, laughing off the idea that anyone would find Asian men to be sexually desirable.

The 60-year-old received much criticism for his tone deaf jabs — filled with gut-busting punchlines like "I don't even like Chinese food!" (ugh) — and even sparked an open letter from Fresh Off The Boat author Eddie Huang discussing the damaging history of such insulting remarks.

On Tuesday, Harvey spoke out on the criticism and offered an apology to all those who were offended by his words.

Sharing the note on Twitter, the funny man said his jokes were "not meant with any malice or disrespect," writing:

George Michael's cousin has had enough!

On Sunday, George's cousin Andros Georgiou took to Facebook to express his distrust of the singer's controversial boyfriend Fadi Fawaz. As we previously reported, Fawaz was the one who found Michael dead on Christmas morning.

Since the icon's passing, Fadi has exhibited strange behavior like posting a tweet suggesting his boyfriend "wanted" to die. The creepy message sparked a lot of outrage and confusion.

Now it looks like Georgiou is speaking out on the offending message and setting the record straight on his true feelings. In the post, Andros questioned why the pair weren't together on Christmas Eve and why Fadi slept in his car that fateful night.

The concerned family member ranted:

"[Fadi] was never with Yog [a family nickname for George] 24 hours a day they never lived together he lived in one of Yogs houses in Regents Park. And even if they were, WHY were they not together on Christmas Eve? and WHY did he sleep in the car? Too many questions have come up."

Wow… it sounds like there's a lot of bad blood here.

Take a look at the suspicious post (below)!

This feels like the beginning of the end of Freedom of the Press

Over the weekend, Esquire reported that three senior officials on Donald Trump's transition team say the incoming Administration is seriously considering a plan to kick the press corps out of the White House.

One official told the magazine that, if the plan is approved, the media will no longer gather in the White House press room, but will instead either assemble at the White House Conference Center near Lafayette Square or the Old Executive Office Building next door.

Incoming press secretary Sean Spicer told Esquire nothing is set in stone yet, saying:

"There has been no decision. There has been some discussion about how to do it."

However, Sean justified the possible move by claiming there just isn't enough room in the White House press room, adding:

Connecticut Politician Arrested For Following Donald Trump's Lead And Grabbing A Woman's P*ssy!

no title

Welcome to Trumpmerica.

After we learned last year that Donald Trump audibly admitted to grabbing women "by the p*ssy," we're disgusted to reveal he's not the only one.

Last week, Greenwich, Connecticut's Representative Town Meeting chair, Christopher von Keyserling, was arrested for fourth-degree sexual assault, after he allegedly pinched a female town worker's genitalia at the Nathaniel Witherell Home back in December.

According to the Westport Daily Voice, the arrest warrant explains the 71-year-old and the unnamed woman were having a heated discussion about politics, when Christopher said "it was a new world politically," and felt he was free to be offensive, saying:

"I love this new world, I no longer have to be politically correct."

When the 57-year-old appeared disgusted by that stance, Mr. von Keyserling exclaimed she's "nothing but a bloodsucking lazy union employee," causing her to walk away and into her office.

But, the police doc says the Connecticut politician followed her,

Steve Harvey desperately needs to add some fresh jokes to his repertoire.

Last week, the Family Feud host got heat for an insulting bit on his daytime talk show, in which he skewered Asian men, laughing at the idea of anyone finding them sexually desirable.

Now, Fresh Off the Boat author Eddie Huang is blasting the comedian for jabbing Asian men dating women of another race, calling the jokes in question "upsetting."

On Friday's The Steve Harvey show, the comedian cracked jokes about absurdly specific advice books like How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men — but instead of a clever punchline, Harvey just said:

"That's one page. 'Excuse me, do you like Asian men?' ‘No.' ‘Thank you.'"

In an essay for The New York Times, Huang revealed that Harvey's shockingly tone deaf jokes have quite the terrifying history of "the expectations the dominant culture" places on Asian Americans.

The writer said that he became aware of these social constructs at a young age, explaining:
