Caitlyn Jenner responded to an apology by “The View” co-host Joy Behar for repeatedly using the wrong pronoun when referring to her.
“Don’t sweat it, @JoyVBehar,” the 71-year-old Olympian and television personality tweeted on Saturday morning.
“I’m not about cancel culture. I know where your heart is. California has bigger issues than pronouns,” she added.
On Friday, the longtime Republican announced plans to run to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, in a recall election later this year.
After Jenner’s official announcement, Behar discussed her bid on Friday’s “The View,” and used the wrong pronoun a few times when referring to the “I Am Cait” star.
“He’s got this guy Brad Parscale running his campaign. What do you think about that?” Behar asked co-host Sunny Hostin. “I mean, that guy was accused of using campaign funds to enrich himself. That’s who is running his campaign — or her campaign, rather.”
Behar, a 78-year-old Emmy-winning television host, repeated the gaffe later in the show saying 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.”
After a commercial break, Behar apologized for her “pronoun mix-up.”
“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,” she said.
