She picked up the phone. "But I did encourage her and 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 added.
Amid a "stony silence" from ABC, pressure continues to grow for Joy Behar, co-host of "The View", to publicly apologize for offending millions of Christians. First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly. "She called me. She was very honest, and she apologized, and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven", Pence said. "I don't think it was right and I was glad to hear she apologized".
"Look, but I said to Joy, of course, I forgive you".
"It's one thing to talk to Jesus, it's another thing when Jesus talks to you", Behar said at the time. "That's called mental illness, if I'm not correct, hearing voices".
"She was very honest, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven", he added.
The Disney CEO also told the shareholders that he was happy to learn that Behar finally apologized because he said that he "takes exception" to her statement.
The question was asked by National Center for Public Policy Research general counsel Justin Danhof, who wanted the Disney boss to address all the Christians and President Donald Trump's supporters who were offended and associated with hateful labels by some of the show's on their TV network, just like what Behar did.
Pence said he accepted Behar's apology and asked her to make a broader one. "We're better than that", Pence later said in response.
