Heaven forbid! Joy Behar catches heat for apologizing to ‘fake Christian’ Mike Pence [video]

Last week, we told you how Disney CEO Bob Iger claimed that Joy Behar had apologized to Mike Pence for likening his Christian faith to mental illness. We — and many others — were understandably skeptical that any such apology had taken place.

Well, knock us over with a feather, because according to Pence himself, Behar indeed apologized to him. And today on “The View,” Behar used her platform to apologize not just to Pence, but to other Christians stung by her hurtful words:

We can’t believe we’re saying this, but good on Joy Behar.

I, a Democrat and a Christian and a #TheView , was offended by #JoyBehar remarks! 😢 So, SO happy and relieved to know she apologized! 💯👍

That took humility and courage and thanks for your heartfelt words.

That’s good. Joy you apologized. Although I am conservative and a Christian, I applaud you.

Thank you Joy. I am one of those Christians and I forgive you. We all have bad days and sometimes, for the sake of entertainment, don’t consider the impact of what we say. As far as I am concerned, the issue is settled.

Good for you @JoyBehar …when you’re wrong, you’re wrong. You owned up to it.

Naturally, Joy Behar’s mea culpa didn’t sit well with some members of the Tolerance Brigade, who not only believe that Mike Pence doesn’t deserve an apology, but that he deserves to be disrespected:

He doesn’t deserve an apology

As if Pence has moral high ground.

not sure if apologizing was the right thing 2do. it feeds right into their self-righteousness.

@JoyVBehar girl.. don’t apologize… these people are the complete opposite of their supposed faith… they are evil.. deserve no respect!!!!

He has NO respect for lgbt people and has more than offended us using his religion as his tool – @JoyVBehar should not have apologized for her humerous delivery and if anyone should apologize it should be PENCE @VP to the millions of gay people who he has hurt and offended

— Melanie Nathan (@MelanieNathan1) March 13, 2018

The @VP @mike_pence @GovPenceIN needs to make PUBLIC apology for #HATEFUL laws #Homophobia. Why is that accepted but joke is NOT.

— Greg B (@Gregsbelle) March 13, 2018

It is nice that a comedian took the high road, when the @VP makes zero effort to be a better person he is a #fakechristian

— Greg B (@Gregsbelle) March 13, 2018

Mike Pence does not respect everyone’s religious faith. He does not respect people who choose not to place their hands in religious faith. As far as I am concerned he deserves the disrespect that he gets. Signed, Glad that he’s out of Indiana.
