Joy Behar Tries To Take Back 'Inappropriate' Joke About Gay NFL Player—But People Aren't Having It

The View/ABC

NFL player Carl Nassib made history by being the first active football player in the professional league to come out as gay. In response, The View host and comedian Joy Behar took it upon herself to make a homophobic joke immediately.

Behar made her poor-taste joke about gay sex on the air.

She said:

"After they said penetration in the end zone, they lost me!"

The backlash was immediate.

It's Pride month, so if you're planning on making a tasteless joke about gay people, perhaps it's better saved for a different time of year.
