A contrite Harvey was forced to fix his mistake.
“OK folks … I have to apologise,” he told a confused crowd in Las Vegas.
“Let me just take control of this. This is exactly what’s on the card. I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake. It was on the card.”
When Harvey returned to the stage, Wurtzbach appeared at a loss of what to do.
Stunned, she walked to the front of the stage, where the coveted crown was taken off the head of Miss Colombia and put on hers.
Harvey later took to Twitter to apologise, but he made another misstep when he misspelled both Colombia and the Philippines in an initial tweet. That message was deleted.
Meanwhile many have taken to twitter to tongue lash the actor/comedian for his mistake on twitter and they aren’t going easy at all…
