Another "Miss Universe" pageant, another Steve Harvey flub.

During the live show, the host for Sunday’s pageant fumbled a few times and social media was quick to catch on.

The first gaffe found Harvey rolling his eyes while a contestant discussed climate change.

The eye-roll seen around the world came after he posed a question about environmental issues to Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi.

"Are leaders of today doing enough to protect future generations for climate change? If not, what else should they be doing?" Harvey asked.

Tunzi responded, "I think the future leaders could do a little bit more. But, however, I feel we as individuals ourselves can also play a part in making the climate the way it should be in the future. I mean, we have children protesting for climate and I feel like as adults we should join as well, we should have corporations join as well, and the government should be taking it seriously."

"I mean from sixth grade I've been learning that the climate is deteriorating and the planet is dying and up to us to keep our planet safe."

The host’s actions were called “unprofessional” and “embarrassing” by fans.

Miss South Africa’s eloquent responses earned her the coveted title and crown at the end of the night.

That wasn’t the only mess-up that Harvey had to endure, however.

He once again messed up contest results when he referred to Miss Malaysia as Miss Phillippines.

“Earlier this week, all the contestants competed in a National Costume contest. Here’s the look at the winner, Miss Philippines,” he said during the contest.

“It’s not Philippines. It’s Malaysia,” Miss Universe Malaysia Shweta Sekhon said after grabbing the mic from him.

Harvey blamed it on the teleprompter explaining, "Let me explain something to you. I just read that in the teleprompter. Ya'll got to quit doing this to me. I can read," he said.

He compared the moment to what happened to him in 2015 when he announced the wrong "Miss Universe" winner, a mistake he'll never live down.
