He seems so kind and sweet during his show; so attentive to all his guests and mindful of their situations. Apparently, it's not the same with his staff. Here is the leaked memo Steve Harvey sent to his staff earlier this week:
Good morning, everyone. Welcome back.
I’d like you all to review and adhere to the following notes and rules for Season 5 of my talk show.
There will be no meetings in my dressing room. No stopping by or popping in. NO ONE.
Do not come to my dressing room unless invited.
Do not open my dressing room door. IF YOU OPEN MY DOOR, EXPECT TO BE REMOVED.
My security team will stop everyone from standing at my door who have the intent to see or speak to me.
I want all the ambushing to stop now. That includes TV staff.
You must schedule an appointment.
I have been taken advantage of by my lenient policy in the past. This ends now. NO MORE.
Do not approach me while I’m in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly. Either knock or use the doorbell.
I am seeking more free time for me throughout the day.
Do not wait in any hallway to speak to me. I hate being ambushed. Please make an appointment.
I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me.
If you’re reading this, yes, I mean you.
Everyone, do not take offense to the new way of doing business. It is for the good of my personal life and enjoyment.
Thank you all,
I can see how being "bothered" when you're trying to get a show together can be irritating. But I can't imagine the staff of said show "bothering" Harvey for no reason. If you're the man in charge, all the questions, changes and concerns have to come to you, don't they? The internet has spoken and most aren't happy about the memo. What do you think?

That Steve Harvey memo is essentially a bougie negro's how-to-guide.— Dronie Swag (@Delo_Taylor) May 12, 2017
