If you’ve been online within the past 24 hours, you’ve probably heard about the wild ending to the 2015 Miss Universe pageant.
Host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner, causing Miss Colombia to celebrate for two minutes before her crown was taken and given to Miss Philippines.
Harvey apologized profusely: “[Miss Philippines] is exactly what’s on the card. I will take responsibility for this; it was my mistake.” The memes poured in, and everyone seemed to agree that Steve Harvey had massively screwed up.
Was it really his fault, though? Many designers say the scorecard was the problem.
