- Steve Harvey has been blasted on social media for saying men can't be friends with women

- Steve claimed that men remain friends with women in the hope that one day "there'll be a crack in the door"
Steve Harvey has been slammed on social media for claiming men and women can't be friends. An old video of the TV host making an appearance on CNN's Face to Face with Fredicka in 2010 recently resurfaced online.
In the clip, the Family Feud presenter claims men are "incapable" of having a platonic relationship with women without ulterior motives.
"He’s your friend only because you have made it absolutely clear that nothing else is happening except this friendship we have. We remain your friends in hopes that one day there’ll be a crack in the door, a chink in the armour," said Steve, according to Complex.
Twitter users were quick to call the US media personality out for his comments in the now-viral video. Most of them disagreed with Steve. Check out some of their comments below:
"Notice here, he says he is incapable of that. Then proceeds to say that '99.9 percent of men think this way'. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is called projecting. Thank you for coming to my TED talk."
"Some men really do a disservice to themselves, acting like they have no control over their impulses yet turn around and demand we respect them as leaders."

"It’s just really funny to me how men will say things like this but then be offended when women assume all men want is sex. How is that not a safe conclusion when men *loudly* express they can’t fathom a relationship with women outside of sex?"
"But he's wrong in this case."
"Says the man who's cheated how often now?"
"The nerve to say 99.9% of guys with female friends just want to sleep with them. If you’re a pervert, don’t put it on others."
