During a broadcast of his syndicated radio show, Harvey traded words with a Flint, Michigan caller about the Golden State Warrior’s win over the Cleveland Cavs in the NBA finals. The caller said “Cleveland didn’t deserve jack,” when Harvey suggested that the city of Cleveland needed and deserved to win.
Harvey responded offensively saying the caller “gone call in and say Cleveland don’t deserve jack and he over their bathing in all that silver water,” referencing the ongoing water crisis in Flint.
Harvey’s co-hosts suggested that he move on, but the comedian continued his verbal assault. “Enjoy your nice brown glass of water,” Harvey said.
His comments are particularly loaded, considering the city is still reeling from the crisis that poisoned thousands of adults and children in the city.
