Joy Behar of The View apologized to viewers on Friday for repeatedly referring to Caitlyn Jenner as ‘He’.
Behar was moderating a conversation about Jenner officially announcing her candidacy for Governor of California when flubbing her words.
“He’s got this guy, Brad [Parscale], running his campaign. What do you think of that?” Behar said to co-host Sunny Hostin. “I mean that guy was accused of using campaign funds to enrich himself. What?! That’s who’s running his campaign…uh, her campaign rather…yea.”
Then after Meghan McCain suggested Jenner is unqualified to serve as governor, Behar again fumbled her words, when she said, “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.”
Moments later, Behar apologized to her audience for mixing up the pronouns used to identify Jenner, blaming the mishap on not getting “enough sleep.”
“I think I didn’t get enough sleep last night,” Behar said. “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 anyone was upset by that.”
Here is video of the first instance during Friday’s program, where Behar referred to Jenner as he:
