Marjorie Harvey shares video with dad after criticism her parents are still living in the 'hood'
Marjorie Harvey flaunts her father's progress in physical therapy in a video she recently shared. Her post comes in the heels of a controversy over her parents' home prompting her to clap back on her critics.
Marjorie Harvey, the wife of famous comedian and host Steve Harvey, was grateful for her father’s latest achievement in a video she recently shared.
In the clip, her old man was walking alongside his therapist who held his hand and urged him to keep going.
“This is the best I’ve seen you walk,” the therapist said to Marjorie’s father who maintained his stride while his daughter could be heard in the background capturing it all on video.
“God is good!”, Marjorie wrote in her caption and explained,
"The physical therapist has my father walking so good. He hasn't walked this good in years. #praisereport #glorytogod"
The 53-year-old clothing line owner is a proud daughter who recently went back to her roots visiting her family home in Memphis. She shared photos from the outside steps of her humble abode growing up where her parents still stay. Unfortunately, her post was met with criticism by internet trolls who judged her.
“It feels good to be back in Memphis at my parents [house emoji],” Marjorie wrote to accompany a photo of her posing inside her childhood home before fans chimed in and rained on her parade. They pointed out that she was living luxuriously while allowing her parents to keep staying at their modest home.
“Dam Steve couldn’t buy them a bigger house?”
“You could of upgraded that house for your parents.”
“You letting your mom live like that. That’s so sad.”
Marjorie was certainly not going to let those comments slide, so she responded to her critics in the dignified way she knows.
“I started to just block you for the ignorant comment but I decided to respond. First off I take excellent care of my parents and would buy them any house of their dreams. However, my father is proud and absolutely loves the house that he built for his family and could not dream of living anywhere else. I would never insult my parents by telling them it’s not good enough. It’s the house that my brother and I were raised. Will always be a part of who I am. I’m grateful and proud of it. God blessed you.”
Her reply was validated by other fans who recognized the value of preserving one’s ancestral home not for what it looks like but for the memories it holds. This should teach others a lesson on humility in the midst of this age of materialism.
