You've got to love a good sense of humor.

Days after Steve Harvey got roasted all over the Internet for announcing the wrong winner at the Miss Universe pageant, the host poked a little fun at himself too. "Merry Easter y'all !," Steve captioned a shot of himself on Christmas Day, posing by his pool covered with Christmas decorations with a cigar in his mouth.
"I'm so dead," one person commented, adding crying laughing emojis. "LMAOOO he's such a clown!," another wrote, while someone else commented, "this is epic." The post was even more hilarious considering there really are memes floating around with Steve's face on it that say "Merry Easter," among many other memes and gifs clowning his epic mix-up.

As for what went down, while Steve was hosting the show Dec. 20, he named the runner up, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez the winner instead of Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach. After Miss Colombia had already received the crown and the Miss Universe sash, Steve slowly walked back out onto the stage and revealed he read the wrong name on the card he had in his hand.

Steve later apologized for his mistake, writing, "I'd like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible." It was clear that the Miss Universe organization wasn't sweating it too much, though. The company's Chief Content Officer, Mark Shapiro, said they would love to have him back on the show.
The 2015 Miss Universe PageantEntertainment Tonight reported that he will likely be back on the show next year, considering he signed a big money multi-year contract to host it just days before the pageant.

It's clear Steve is also laughing all the way to the bank.
