Steve Harvey is trending on X (Twitter) over two incidents: one real and the other fake.
Harvey, 66, shared a video Friday night suggesting he fired his social media manager after they posted a tweet urging followers to name a comedian that does not make them laugh.
"Somebody that works for me on my Twitter put a statement out that was totally negative.
Why would I do something like that?" Harvey said. "That don't even make no damn sense.
"My whole brand is to be motivational, and I'mma turn around a say something like that?
You don't know where these young people [are] at in they career, man.
They could be coming up or anything. I'm all about positivity; I would've never done nothing like that."
Harvey confronted the employee, who told him he needed more engagement, and the comedian joked that now somebody needs "employment."
"Fake news has been taken to new heights all over the world and this is so unfortunate," Nwoko wrote.
