Caitlyn Jenner is said to have accepted Joy Behar’s apology for what is described as misgendering the California gubernatorial aspirant, telling the daytime host she’s “not about cancel culture.”
“Don’t sweat it, @JoyVBehar,” Jenner, 71, tweeted early Saturday morning. “I’m not about cancel culture. I know where your heart is. California has bigger issues than pronouns.”
Behar reportedly misgendered Caitlyn Jenner on “The View” on Friday… referring to her as “he” while discussing her political potentials.
But an insider told us there was no malice behind Behar’s phrasing and said it was “an honest mistake.”
“This was not political or her taking a dig. She didn’t say it pointedly. She kept making the mistake. She corrected herself, and then accidentally did it again. She was not being malicious by any means,” an insider told Page Six while pointing out that Behar is an “advocate” who “has been honoured by [LGBTQ+ rights group] GLAAD.”
“He’s got this guy Brad Parscale running his campaign,” Behar said on the show before backtracking and using “her.”
However, she apologized after going on a commercial break and blamed the mistake on not getting enough sleep.
“Let me apologize for my pronoun mix-up. I think I 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. I’m sorry if anybody was upset by that,” she said.
