    Steve Harvey took to social media on Christmas Day to wish everyone a merry Easter.

    The talk show and game show host tweeted a photo of himself with a cigar in his mouth and giving a peace sign with the caption “Merry Easter y'all!” followed by three Christmas tree emojis.

    The tweet comes after the 58-year-old named the wrong winner during Sunday night’s live broadcast of the annual worldwide Miss Universe pageant.

    While he initially announced that Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez-Arvalo would be going home with the largest crown, the honor was meant for Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurztbach.

    "I have to apologize," he said. "The first runner-up is Colombia."

    He explained to the audience and viewers that he misread the card that held the names of the winners. Colombia was listed as the first runner-up, and he'd been confused with how it was written on the card. He held it up for the camera.

    "It is my mistake," he said. "Still, it's a great night. Please don't hold it against the ladies. We feel very badly, but it's still a great night."

    Harvey also later tweeted an apology to the women and viewers. "I feel terrible," he wrote. The Miss Universe organization issued an apology on Monday as well.

    The incident sparked numerous memes shared widely online.
