On Tuesday’s The View, co-host Joy Behar made a disgusting joke targeted at Las Vegas Raiders’ defensive end Carl Nassib, who recently came out as gay.

During the segment, the panel largely supported Nassib’s announcement, praising him for his courage. However, Behar cracked a joke when explaining she doesn’t know much about football. 

“After they said ‘penetration in the end zone,’ they lose me,” Behar said.

“Behar’s comment made everyone on the show crack up with the exception of McCain, who looked visibly disgusted by the remark,” Fox News reported.

Behar’s comment received immediate backlash on Twitter, with journalist John Nicosia writing, “Of all the progress gay men have made since I came out. Our lives are still defined by anal sex ‘jokes’.”

Mediaite’s Leia Idibly called it an “insensitive sex joke” and Behar later attempted to backtrack, asking viewers to “make believe” it never happened.

She’s a comedian who bombed. I’m sure it’s not the first time and likely won’t be the last. There’s a part of me that’s glad to see she’s getting a taste of her own nasty medicine.

She should have gone with the “starting out as a tight end and ending up being a wide receiver” joke.
