‘Bad Girl’ Danielle Victor Claims Steve Harvey Discriminated Against Her by Canceling Show Appearance

*Danielle Victor, best known for her time on Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club,” took to Instagram last week to fire off some pretty serious accusations against Steve Harvey.

Victor was kicked off the show in 2012 after a physical altercation with four other housemates, and today she seems a bit bitter because Harvey’s team canceled her appearance for a dating segment.

“I’m posting this because I have to let things off my chest especially about this ‘industry,’” Victor said on her Instagram feed. “I got approached to do a segment on @iamsteveharveytv about dating because we ALL know I am horrible at it

“I made it to the next round, made a video, made it to the round after that,” she adds. “Now, I never lie to casting about the fact that I did Bad Girls Club and a bunch of spins because it is a part of who I am and the beginning of this journey I started.”

As reported by The Grio, she claims the show dropped her after finding out about her “Bad Girls Club” past.

“A show doesn’t define who a person is, I am not Bad Girls Club, I am a girl who was on Bad Girls Club,” she said. “So I just received this email telling me they are going in a different direction aka they think you are trash because of your past putting me in a box I don’t deserve to be in.

“I grew up watching @iamsteveharveytv I looked at him as an icon and now I don’t know how I feel about him or the people he works for,” she continued. “This isn’t racist but it’s discriminatory, period.”

The post also includes a screenshot of the e-mail with one of Harvey’s producer’s saying they were going in a different direction… but nothing about the wording is discriminatory, as Danielle claims. 

She later reveals that received similar discrimination from ABC and “The Bachelor,” but provided no receipts to back up her allegations. 

“I am calling out these networks like @abcnetwork @nbcnetwork to stop discriminating against great talent because YOU think we are trash, we are not,” she said. “I am calling out @iamsteveharveytv because you seem like the type of man that wouldn’t stand for this type of behavior even if these people are cutting your checks. You’re for the people right? Well I am your people, so I would like to hear from @iamsteveharveytv himself why exactly I am NOT good enough to share a stage with.”

Meanwhile, Harvey is currently shrouded in the controversy surrounding the cancellation of his daytime talk show “Steve.”
