Anti-Trump activists are trying to get Steve Harvey’s nationally syndicated morning radio show taken off the air, and are accusing the comedian of “selling his soul to President Donald Trump,” after meeting with the president to discuss ways to improve inner city neighborhoods earlier this year.
The petition calling for Harvey’s dismissal was posted on Change.org in January and has been signed by only 3,000 people since. The post, created by Street Media, has been continually updated to include controversial stories about Harvey, such as a response to offensive jokes he’s made about Asian men daing white women, and a recent staff memo in which he requested that employees not approach him without first making an appointment because he wanted some privacy on the set.
“TV Host Steve Harvey is the latest victim of a Trump Tower meeting, and most recent African American celebrity to sell his soul to current [President] Donald Trump,” the petition claims.
“It’s deeper than boycotting Steve Harvey, but it will start here. This is also the American people refusing to accept the trickery and deceit of our modern day Barry Goldwater, Donald Trump. We aim to have ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show’ removed and replaced with something all listeners can enjoy from Asian to African-American.”
Aside from the petition, Harvey has received a great deal of criticism from Left-leaning celebrities for meeting with the president.
