Joy Behar has no regrets for walking out on Bill O’Reilly during today’s episode of The View for what she calls his ‘hate speech’. At issue was the proposed mosque near the site of ground zero in New York City. For Joy it was an issue of hate against the entire Muslim religion and she wasn’t interested in hearing anymore of his hateful banter. She and co-host Whoopi Goldberg staged a mid-interview walkout.
“Really, is anyone talking about it? He’s a idiot,” she tells Popeater. “I just couldn’t sit there any longer and listen to him.”
What else does Joy have to say about the fallout from her very public walkout?
She may not have been able to sit there for the interview any longer, but Joy was able to ultimately return to listen to the rest of the interview.
“No one made us go back out,” Behar added of her decision to return. “After he apologized, Whoopi and I walked back out and sat down. I have no regrets.”
Joy may have no regrets, but I think Bill O’Reilly may have some second thoughts before he returns to The View anytime soon!
