Steve Harvey might be the most hated man in Colombia EVER -- after accidentally declaring Miss Colombia the winner of Miss Universe ... and then taking it back!!!
It might be the greatest/saddest moment in the history of beauty pageants ... pay close attention to the look on Miss Colombia's face when Harvey announced his COLOSSAL mistake.
The real winner ... Miss Philippines.
Harvey knows he screwed up -- and immediately began apologizing on Twitter.
"I'd like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible."
"Secondly, I'd like to apologize to the viewers at that I disappointed as well. Again it was an honest mistake."
"I don't want to take away from this amazing night and pageant. As well as the wonderful contestants. They were all amazing."
9:12 AM PT: Tyrese came to Harvey's defense on social media saying, "If I was hosting and seen this card...?? With this little ass writing?? I literally would of MADE the SAME MISTAKE!!!!! Steve Harvey, I stand with you."
