Steve Harvey criticized the backlash he has been receiving lately.

Harvey was chastised by comedian, Eddie Huang, for making disparaging jokes about Asian men. He also came under the ire of fans and foes alike after his meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump.

"I walked away feeling like I had just talked with a man who genuinely wants to make a difference in this area [education and urban housing]. I feel that something really great could come out of this I would sit with him anytime," said Harvey about his meeting with Trump.

Now there is a petition to get Harvey fired from his morning radioshow. Harvey joked that he would join the protesters, who he said would forget about their cause after a few days.

"I get out of trouble and get right back in it. I'm tired of PC [Politically Correct]," said Harvey. "All this going on in the world and you worried about me meeting with the President." said Steve while on his tirade, "See all these punk ass people talking about they gonna get a petition and have Steve took off the radio? I'll walk around in a circle and march with your ass for three days because that's all how long you'll be out there. Because I know you ain't gonna be out there longer than 48 hours."

"On a personal note, a lot of ya'll hurt me," admitted Harvey. "You really did. I didn't expect the backlash to be so fierce."
