According the New Zealand Herald, Harvey then tried to clear up an embarrassing situation with a joke referring to Pascoe’s sponsored involvement with New Zealand beef and lamb. He remarked, “So sorry about that Snapchat. I know you like beef and lamb … but nobody deserves a surprise pork sausage.”
