On Tuesday, Joy Behar apologized for making an “inappropriate” joke while talking to her co-hosts about Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib for coming out as the first gay, active NFL player.
Behar asked, “I know he’s the first active NFL player to come out as gay. It’s 2021. Is this such a big deal?”
Co-host Ana Navarro replied, “Listen, the NFL has been around for 100 years. Surely this is not the first gay player. It’s the first one who identifies as such. You know I have the sports knowledge of a brussel sprout. I think it’s a huge deal. I know locker rooms are toxic.”
Yikes! This joke from Joy Behar during a discussion of the first active gay player in the NFL.

She added, “I think it’s about representation, about being seen, about being accepted. It sends a strong message to LGBTQ youth who are so vulnerable to being bullied and have a high suicide rate. I applaud him. I’m happy. I might even watch a football game every now and then. Who does he play for again? It’s not the Dolphins, right?”
Co-host Sunny Hostin said, “Las Vegas, The Las Vegas Raiders.”
Behar joked, “You know Ana, after they said penetration in the end zone, they lost me.”
Co-host Meghan McCain responded, “I echo everything everyone said. I think it’s fantastic he’s coming out. Fantastic he’s comfortable doing it. I hope it’s a step forward.”
Behar replied, “I just long for the days you could just be gay in the world, and it doesn’t become a big deal. By the way, that inappropriate joke I made for daytime television, scratch it — make believe I never said it.”
