NEW YORK (AP):

Steve Harvey wants to be alone, so don't be knocking on his dressing room door.

That's just one of several pointed warnings to Harvey's staff emailed by the talk-show host before the start of this season of 'The Steve Harvey Show'.

Harvey's directive, obtained and posted by Chicago media blogger Robert Feder, also cautions his minions not to approach him in the make-up chair or "ambush" him in a hallway.

Harvey implores his staff not to "take offence" at these new measures, explaining that they are for the good of his "personal life and enjoyment".

The memo has sparked scorn and jeering on social media.

Harvey has since conceded that he should've handled the matter "a little bit differently".
