Caitlyn Jenner Responds After 'The View's Joy Behar Apologized For Misgendering Her
Former "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star Caitlyn Jenner has responded to Joy Behar's apology. The longtime republican also reiterated the need to focus on bigger issues happening in California.
Caitlyn Jenner recently took to social media, responding to "The View" co-host Joy Behar's apology after using wrong pronouns for the former reality star.
On the April 23 episode of the view, Behar repeatedly used the "he/him" pronouns for Jenner while addressing her newly announced interest in running for the seat of the Californian Governor.

However, on returning from a commercial break, Behar had realized her mistake and quickly apologized for misgendering Jenner, blaming the mix-up lack of quality.
In response, Jenner took to Twitter, writing that she is not about cancel culture and pointing out how California has more important issues than pronouns misuse.
Not long after the tweet was made, fans took to the comments section to react to Jenner's response. While some showed support for her political bid, others simply shared their disapproval.
Jenner confirmed rumors of her aspirations when she shared a social media post announcing that she filed paperwork to run for office and asked fans to donate to the cause.
Sharon Osbourne made headlines after a March 10 episode of "The Talk" saw her defending Piers Morgan's comments about Meghan Markle.
The reality star noted that running for office will help her take proactive steps towards turning the state around and undoing some of the damage that has been done in the past.
Jenner concluded her statement by saying she understands the enormous responsibility that comes with her political run but can't wait to start leading Californians.
A website has reportedly been launched for Jenner, where she sells campaign-promoting merchandise to fans and supporters who might be interested.
While Jenner's announcement has stirred up reactions from several social media users, famous members of her family, including daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, are yet to make comments.
Behar's recent mix-up on live television is not the first controversial discussion fans of daytime talk shows have experienced in recent times.
Last month, Sharon Osbourne made headlines after a March 10 episode of "The Talk" saw her defending Piers Morgan's comments about Meghan Markle.
This led to an intense verbal exchange with co-host Sheryl Underwood who accused Osbourne of downplaying Morgan's racist attack on Markle.
The exchange between the two women stirred up reactions from several viewers who disapproved of Osbourne's remarks. Eventually, CBS announced that she was leaving the show.
And while Osbourne is looking forward to the next phase of her career, the 68-year-old has admitted to feeling hurt and angry over her controversial exit from the show.
Osbourne has also denied every racist allegation levied against her, noting that her show of support for Morgan is from a place of knowing everyone has a right to their opinion regardless of what others might think.
