Caitlyn Jenner has accepted Joy Behar’s apology for misgendering the California gubernatorial hopeful, telling the daytime host she’s “not about cancel culture.”
“Don’t sweat it, @JoyVBehar,” Jenner, 71, tweeted early Saturday morning. “I’m not about cancel culture. I know where your heart is. California has bigger issues than pronouns.”

Behar misgendered Jenner on “The View” Friday, calling her “he” while discussing her potential political future.
But an insider told us there was no malice behind Behar’s phrasing and said it was “an honest mistake.”
“This was not political or her taking a dig. She didn’t say it pointedly. She kept making the mistake. She corrected herself, and then accidentally did it again. She was not being malicious by any means,” an insider told Page Six while pointing out that Behar is an “advocate” who “has been honored by [LGBTQ+ rights group] GLAAD.”
“He’s got this guy Brad Parscale running his campaign,” Behar said on the show before backtracking and using “her.”
She apologized after going to commercial break and blamed the blunder on lack of sleep.
“Let me apologize for my pronoun mix-up. I think I didn’t get enough sleep last night. I had no intention of mixing them up, and I tried to correct it immediately, but whatever, it just came out. I’m sorry if anybody was upset by that,” she said.
Caitlyn is right, California does have bigger problems and it doesn’t need another celebrity governor making things worst.
