Carl Nassib First openly gay NFL player: Joy Behar has apologized for making an “inappropriate” remark on The View on Tuesday.
The co-hosts were discussing Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib, who became the first active NFL player to come out as homosexual earlier this week.
“They lost me after they mentioned penetration in the end zone!” During the conversation, Behar said.
However, before the following commercial break, the 78-year-old TV personality took back her remark.
“I simply wish for the days when being homosexual in public isn’t such a huge issue,” she added. “By the way, the indecent joke I made for daytime television has been scrapped. Assume I never said anything.”
