Joy Behar was finally forced to apologize on Tuesday for mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith last month after ABC was hit with over 30,000 complaints of her bigotry.
However, Behar’s apology ended up being half-hearted at best, and it may have just come back to bite her big time.
Breitbart reported that at the opening of Tuesday’s episode, Behar apologized for mocking Pence for saying that he believes Jesus Christ talks to him. After running a clip of Pence demanding that she apologize to Christians, Behar reluctantly said, “Yeah. So I think Vice President Pence is right. I was raised to respect everyone’s religious faith. I fell short of that. I sincerely apologize for what I said.”
Be sure to watch for Whoopi Goldberg’s sarcastic tone as she introduces the clip of Pence.
However, it didn’t take long for Behar to find out that Americans were not buying her insincere apology.

SORRY DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING. IN MY BOOK SORRY IS A FOUR LETTER WORD. ABC SHOULD HAVE TAKEN ACTION AGAINST HER.

There was no sincerity and that apology she only did it because she was pressured to.. pic.twitter.com/xL0VvPtg5u

@JoyVBehar verbal apology is just the first step. A true apology is accompanied by changed behavior. Without that, she’s just BS’ing.

@ABC Joy Behar apologizes…what a joke. Meaningless because she did it to try to save her job. Fire her now!!!

ABC is obviously not going to be happy that Behar’s pathetic apology fell short. Since bigotry in any form is no longer acceptable in this country, ABC may have no choice but to fire Behar and move on without her.
