‘Coward’ Steve Harvey SLAMMED For Mo’Nique Interview!

Steve Harvey is receiving heat over his recent interview with Mo’Nique.

On Wednesday, the actress appeared on The Steve Harvey Show where she discussed allegedly being “blackballed” from Hollywood years ago.

Back in 2009, the comedienne refused to do press for Lee DanielsPrecious — the film which won her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress — because she was allegedly only paid $50,000.

In her interview, the starlet — born Monique Angela Imes — claimed she was labeled as “difficult” because she said “no” to Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, and Daniels. She remarked:

“[She and her husband/manager Sidney Hicks] got labeled as ‘difficult’ because I said one word — and that was ‘no.’ Now I said no to some very powerful people… the difficulty came in when people that looked like me, like Oprah, Tyler, Lee Daniels and I got to put my brother Steve on the list. Y’all knew that I was not wrong. Each one of you said to me, ‘Mo’Nique, you’re not wrong.’ And when I heard you go on the air and said, ‘My sister burned too many bridges, and it’s nothing I can do for her now,’ Steve, do you know how hurt I was?'”

Unfortunately, the interview took a turn when Harvey suggested to Mo’Nique that money is more important than integrity. Steve said:

“When you tell the truth, you have to deal with the repercussions of the truth… We black out here. We can’t come out here and do it any way we want to. Your husband can’t be the Sidney that he really is out here… This is the money game. This ain’t a black man’s game, this ain’t a white man’s game. This is the money game!”

Mo’Nique responded:

“Before the money game, it’s called the integrity game and we’ve lost the integrity worried about the money.”

That’s when Harvey replied:

“If I crumble, my children crumble, my grandchildren crumble. I can not for the sake of my integrity, stand up here, and let everybody that’s counting on me, crumble so that I can make a statement. There are ways to win the war in a different way.”

After the segment aired, several Twitter users BLASTED Harvey for his controversial statements.
