Steve Harvey naming the wrong winner in the Miss Universe beauty pageant on Sunday night has inspired hilarious memes. Harvey accidentally named Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the pageant, but then realized Miss Phillipines Pia Wurtzbach was the actual winner.
Harvey appeared embarrassed when he walked on stage to tell the crowd, "Folks, I have to apologize. The first runner-up is Colombia."
The host then stated, "Miss Universe 2015 is Miss Philippines."
It didn't take long for memes about Harvey's gaffe to start making their way around the internet.
