Steve Harvey and his wife are feeling the heat after a video of his wife using the word retarded spreads across social media.

In the video posted to Marjorie Harvey's Instagram page, the couple is seen preparing vegetables for a juice.

While discussing the best way to cut a beet Marjorie says "I'm sitting here arguing with my husband, 'cause clearly he thinks I'm retarded [and] I don't know how to cut a beet."

Her use of the word retarded did anything but sit well with the public as many commented that her use of the word was both offensive and inappropriate.

Steve, who is no stranger to publicly defending his wife, responded to critics in a post of his own.

"What you trippin' 'bout 'cause my wife said the word retarded? It's a word, ain't it? And she ain't talking bout nobody but herself to me...She ain't saying it 'bout nobody's baby."
