Who should you call when you mess up a huge announcement on live television? The one and only Steve Harvey.

Harvey knows a thing or two about screwing up big events in the limelight.

After the Oscars gaffe Sunday night when the wrong best picture was announced, Harvey took to Twitter to offer to help the people who flubbed.

Harvey tweeted Monday morning that he would be happy to advise Warren Beatty who handed off the wrong card to Faye Dunaway for the big reveal. 

He even went on his radio show in the morning, saying "Because Warren made a mistake, does he have to die?" Harvey joked. "Should he lose his life? Y'all wanna kill him? Well he needs security because of this."

Harvey also said they both handled it well.

"We handled it great. At least the producers of the Oscars walked out with him... and they corrected the mistake on the night."

PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accountancy firm that is responsible for winners' envelopes, issued an apology for the mistake and said it was "immediately corrected."

"We sincerely apologize to 'Moonlight,' 'La La Land,' Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture," it said in a statement.
