Steve Harvey has been hosting the Miss Universe pageant for quite some time now.
After his famous live mistake when he announced the wrong Miss Universe winner in 2015, he has been chosen to host ever since. Not only because people are talking about the contestants, but Harvey also always does one thing that makes him a trending topic hours later.
For the 2019 Miss Universe pageant, cameras caught the host in an "unprofessional" moment.
Steve Harvey gave off a massive eye roll when one contestant was asked to discuss climate change.
The 62-year-old asked Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi if the "leaders of today" were doing enough to stop climate change.
Twitter users were quick to post pictures, videos and GIFs of Harvey on their social media accounts. It was a mixture of hilarious and outrage.
One commenter said, "Steve Harvey with an all-time eye roll after asking the climate change question."
Another person said, "WTH was that? I hope his eyes were just plain tired and not that he finds climate change questions boring."
"That's the best eye roll I have seen on climate change, he should have dropped the mic," another tweet said.
Actress and host Mindy Robinson said in a tweet that Harvey's eye roll at the end of "this stupid climate change question" is how most of us feel. According to her, if they wanted to get political, they should have asked Miss South Africa about the "state-sanctioned land stealing and genocide of their white farmers."
One tweet included a GIF of Greta Thunberg looking unamused.
The action that barely lasted a half-second was worth a million words before Miss South Africa answered.
Miss South Africa, who had no idea it happened, just happily answered, "I think that the future leaders could do a little bit more. However, I feel we as individuals ourselves can also play a part in making the climate the way it should be in the future."
Tunzi continued, "We have children protesting for climate, and I feel like as adults, we should join as well. We should have corporations join as well, and the government should take it seriously."
From sixth grade, I've been learning that the climate is deteriorating, and the planet is dying, and it is up to us to keep our world safe. Thank you."
It is unsure if that is what she believes or if it is what she knew the pageant judges would like to hear. After all, the crowd roared its approval as Miss South Africa ended up winning the title.

Another Slip-Up in Miss Universe 2019
It was not the first moment caught in the Miss Universe 2019 pageant ceremony that Steve Harvey had a slip-up.
At one point, Harvey announced the wrong winner for "Best in National Costume."
Steve was caught off-guard when a photo of Miss Philippines was shown on screen, and upon seeing it, he announced, "This is it right here."
However, that is when he introduced the woman next to him, who was not the one shown on screen. Miss Malaysia Shweta Sekhon corrected him when he gave her the mic.
"It's not the Philippines! It's Malaysia," she said.
Harvey jokingly defended himself, saying that he just read that in the teleprompter.
"I can read. Now they're trying to fix it now. That is what they did to me back in 2015. Played me short like that," Harvey emphasized.
Eventually, Harvey regained himself and told Miss Malaysia that he was a fan of her costume. The contestant then explained the background of her costume.
