The best of the Steve Harvey, Miss Universe memes

- It was awkward, of course, as Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, had to remove the crown from her head and hand it over to the true winner of the pageant- who was initially announced as the runner up- Pia Alonzo Wurzbach of the Philippines.

And as to be expected, the internet has yet to allow the moment to pass. Memes poking fun at the massive mix-up flooded the Twittersphere overnight and Monday morning, making Steve Harvey and Miss Universe two of the top trending topics.

We’ve selected some of the best we’ve seen so far, and shared them in the gallery above.

Watch the moment as it unfolded during the Miss Universe 2015 pageant in the video below:

Just kidding, Miss Colombia. You’re not actually Miss Universe; Miss Philippines is.
