Disney Boss Bob Iger Reveals Joy Behar Apologized To VP Mike Pence For Attacking His Christian Faith
"I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith and I fell short of that", Behar said on Tuesday's edition of "The View". "She called me", Pence told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview set to air Monday night on the network.
Joy Behar of "The View" has today apologized to viewers and Vice-President Mike Pence for comments she made about Christianity and mental illness.
"I just think it demonstrates how out-of-touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people", he said.
"I'm still encouraging her to use the forum of that program or some other public forum to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended", he said.
During a segment on Omarosa Manigault Newman's comments about Pence and his religiosity, made while taping Celebrity Big Brother, Behar joked: "It's one thing to talk to Jesus". Iger revealed in his response to that question that Behar had personally apologized to Pence.
Behar responded: "It's one thing to talk to Jesus. That's called mental illness, if I'm not correct, hearing voices". First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly. Danhof asked. "Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a risky mental illness?"
Behar's call to Pence was undisclosed until Disney CEO Bob Iger was asked about the controversy during last week's meeting with investors.
Iger answered him by saying, "I don't know where I start".
Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center, which urged Christians to write and call ABC, said Behar's private phone apology is inadequate.
By the end of February, the MRC's campaign had led to at least 30,000 calls insisting that Behar apologize, as well as 6,000 calls to the daytime show's sponsors, according to Fox News. "He encouraged her to make the same apology publicly on the show that she did privately to him".
A day after her initial joke, Behar attempted to clarify her comments on the air.
