Steve Harvey is over the apology phase.

The Miss Universe host has finally wrapped up his apologies and has transitioned into mockery, making fun of himself in a T-Mobile commercial that aired during the Super Bowl.

"I have to apologize—again," Harvey began, rolling his eyes. "Those were last year's numbers. It says right here on the card T-Mobile doubled their LTE in the last year, and with more LTE towers than Verizon, T-Mobile pretty much reaches everyone.

He continued, "I'm not taking responsibility on this one. Nah uh, Verizon got this one wrong. Yes! Not me."

Hey, at least Harvey finally got something right! Harvey has been apologizing for crowning the wrong Miss Universe at the pageant in December, placing the coveted crown on Miss Colombia's head instead of Miss Philippines. After many on-air apologies, including a visit from both contestants on his own show, The Steve Harvey Show, it seems Harvey is ready to move on—for T-Mobile, anyway.

When Harvey invited both contestants, whose names are Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez and Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach, on to his own show, he became teary eyed recalling the humiliating ordeal. "This has caused a lot of sleepless nights for me," Harvey said on his talk show. "I didn't do any interviews until I could talk to the two people who were affected the most, Pia and Ariadna. No matter how tough it was for me, I can't imagine how it was for these two women. This finally gives me a chance to have a moment of closure."

Wurtzbach defended Harvey's position on the show, clearing the air on rumors that he intentionally flubbed for ratings. "I think I can vouch for this one," she explained. "Steve was there throughout all the rehearsals. He was there during technical rehearsals, dress rehearsals...he was there all throughout. We rehearsed everything from start to finish and made us feel very I don't know where that rumor came from."

Well, it looks like we're now past the #TooSoon time period and onto the one where jokes can be made.

Sorry again, Gutierrez.
