The wrong name was announced as the winner of Miss Universe 2015 in Las Vegas last night.
Host, Steve Harvey announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez to be the winner of Miss Universe 2015 but then after she went on stage to receive her crown and perform the ritual wave, he came back on the stage to announce that he had made a mistake and the actual winner in 2015 was Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (Awkward!)
Not only did he make a mistake on live television, he also made a spelling mistake on his first apology tweet, which he later deleted.
#MissUniverse2015 was one of the biggest trends on twitter last night; there were many jokes and memes about this mistake all over twitter. The reaction was mixed, some people were angry some were sympathetic towards Harvey however most people thought his mistake was hilarious.
Steve Harvey tweeted a second apology on twitter, now with the correct spelling of each candidate in the pageant, “I’d like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible.” Harvey sent this apology after the public roasted him on twitter about his first apology and calling out the wrong name on live television.
