Joy Behar Issues Public Apology For Accusing Amy Coney Barrett Of Being In Hate Group

Joy Behar was forced to issue a groveling apology on ABC’s The View after the co-host of the hit show accused Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barret of being in a hate group.

Joy wanted Amy to recuse from some case before the court and this is how she made her case: “Now, here’s my question. She is, you know, a religious person. She belongs to the People of Praise group, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled a hate group, and their founder has questioned the so-called separation of church and state.

“They believe that sex should occur only within marriage and, of course, between a man and a woman. They’ve got very specific things that they believe.

But Joy was wrong, the Southern Poverty Law Center does not have it on its list of hate groups.

On Tuesday’s show, Whoopi Goldberg began the show by saying:

“Before we get to hot topics, Joy, do you want to clarify something?”

Joy said:

“I have to clarify something I said yesterday.

“I want to correct something I said on-air when I stated that People of Praise had been deemed a hate group.

“I just got them mixed up with another group, it was inaccurate. 

“So I don’t think that’s right, I have to say, you know, sorry about that. 

“Anyway, I conflated them.”

“It’s easy to do. You know, sometimes I call Joy, Sara,” Goldberg joked.

“Because we look so much alike,” Sara Haines said.

“Because you look identical to each other,” Goldberg said.
