Joy Behar apologizes for repeatedly abusing Caitlyn Jenner on The View
Joy Behar apologized for using the wrong pronouns when referring to Caitlyn Jenner.
The Friday episode of The View featured Caitlyn’s recently announced run for California Governor, in which Joy misled the Olympic and transgender advocate on more than one occasion. At some point Joy corrected herself and said: “[Brad Parscale] runs his campaign – or rather your campaign. “
After returning from the commercial break, Joy attributed the self-described “mix-up” to lack of sleep.
“First of all, let me apologize for my pronoun confusion,” said the longtime co-host. “I think I just didn’t get enough sleep last night. I had no intention of mistaking them and I tried to correct it right away, but whatever, it just came out. I’m sorry if someone was annoyed about it. “
Caitlyn did not publicly respond to Joy’s apology.
Hours ago, Keeping Up With The Kardashians alum confirmed rumors about their political aspirations. Caitlyn, 71, announced that she had filed papers to run for California’s top office and asked supporters to donate to the campaign.
