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 attempted to smear Amy Coney Barrett with false claims by accusing the Supreme Court justice of being in a hate group.

During the show, Behar was arguing that Barrett should recuse herself from a case before the SCOTUS.

Behar made her case by making false and defamatory claims about Barratt and her Christian group People of Praise.

“Now, here’s my question,” Behar said.

“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 Behar was wrong, however.

The Southern Poverty Law Center does not have People of Praise 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?”

“I have to clarify something I said yesterday,” Behar said.

“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,” Goldberg joked.

“You know, sometimes I call Joy, Sara.”

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

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