Yesterday, we reported that Joy Behar had repeatedly misgendered Caitlyn Jenner on “The View” after the former Olympic athlete announced that she was running for governor of California. Now, Jenner has responded to the controversy on social media.
“Don’t sweat it, @JoyVBehar. I’m not about cancel culture. I know where your heart is. California has bigger issues than pronouns,” Jenner tweeted.

This came after Behar misgendered Jenner multiple times on Friday’s episode of her ABC talk show “The View.”
“Sunny, he’s got this guy Brad Parscale running his campaign,” Behar said of Jenner, according to People Magazine. “What do you think about that? I mean, that guy was accused of using campaign funds to enrich himself. That’s who is running his campaign, or her campaign, rather.”
“Listen, you know, I think we’ve had enough of reality stars running, you know, for positions running our government, it didn’t really work out so well for the past four years,” Hostin responded. “The fact that Caitlyn Jenner was supportive of our disgraced twice impeached one-term president until her community was attacked and not supported by that president is very telling.”
“I don’t take it that seriously,” conservative cohost Meghan McCain chimed in to say. “Maybe I should. I don’t think she’s going to win, and I’m not saying that to be rude or negative. I agree with Sunny. I don’t think this is the type of thing that should have on-the-job training. California is a mess.”
“Right, I would go along with that. I think that he should — she, rather, should take a seat and let somebody with the credentials take over a major state like California,” Behar added.
In the next segment, Behar issued an apology for what she had done.
“So first of all, let me apologize for my pronoun mix-up,” she said. “I think I just didn’t get enough sleep last night. I had no intention of mixing them up, and I tried to correct it immediately, but, whatever it just came out, so I’m sorry if anybody was upset by that.”
