Comedian and host Steve Harvey says he has gotten a 'fierce' backlash from fans following a meeting Friday with President-elect Donald Trump.
Harvey revealed the furious reaction during his radio show Monday, acknowledging that the criticism hit home following his meeting with Trump, where the two men discussed working on the nation's inner cities.
'It's been a little bit more than interesting,' Harvey said.
The meeting occurred just a day before Trump's clash with members of the congressional black caucus boiled over, with Rep. John Lewis saying his election wasn't 'legitimate' and Trump blasting the civil rights icon on Twitter.
'On a personal note, a lot of y'all hurt me,' Harvey told his listeners, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
'I didn't expect the backlash to be so fierce. I also understand if I'm going to keep getting stabbed at, at least while you're stabbing me, you should understand my intent,' he continued.
