Steve Harvey just showcased exactly what not to do at a competition, especially a nationally televised one like the annual Miss Universe pageant.

Miss Colombia Paulina Vega was excited when Harvey confidently announced that she was this year’s winner, crying tears of joy. However, it was a moment of ecstasy that only lasted a few seconds. Harvey had to apologize — Vega wasn’t the Miss Universe winner, and the crown really belonged to Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach. Whether the teleprompter was wrong or not, Harvey announced the wrong name.

Vega had to take an L and the existential cruelty of seeing a once-in-a-lifetime achievement stripped from her. Harvey had to take an L and catch these Twitter jokes.

How embarrassing.
