During a segment on Omarosa Manigault Newman's comments about Pence and his religiosity, made while taping Celebrity Big Brother, Behar joked: "It's one thing to talk to Jesus".

"It's one thing to talk to Jesus, It's another thing when Jesus talks to you", Behar quipped at the time.

"I'm still encouraging her, to use the forum of that program or some other public forum, to apologize to tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended", Pence said. Iger revealed in his response to that question that Behar had personally apologized to Pence. He emphasized that The View's deriding his Christianity is "an insult not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who like me cherish their faith". "I'd like to be light about it, but I really can't - not for my sake, but for the tens of millions of Americans who cherish their faith, I just, I can't be silent".

Last week, Disney CEO Bob Iger told company shareholders that Behar had called Pence to apologize. He added, "It's just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance". While claiming he accepted her apology, he then passive aggressively suggested she needed to make it public.

Iger told the crowd he was "glad to hear" Behar apologized because he "takes exception" to what she said.

The apology was reportedly confirmed by Fox News.
