Disney CEO Bob Iger told shareholders on Thursday that "The View" host Joy Behar has called Vice President Mike Pence and apologized for her comments about his religion, Fox News reports. 

Last month, Behar commented on former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman saying on "Celebrity Big Brother" that Pence is "extreme" in his religious views, and that "he thinks Jesus tells him to say things."

Behar said, "It's one thing to talk to Jesus. It's another thing when Jesus talks to you. That's called mental illness, if I'm not correct, hearing voices."

The next day, Pence slammed "The View" network ABC for airing a "forum that compared Christianity to mental illness."

During a shareholder meeting on Thursday, Justin Dahof, the general counsel for the National Center for Public Policy Research, asked, "What do you say to the tens of millions of Christians, and President Trump supporters, that your networks have so blatantly offended and ascribed hateful labels? Specifically, do you think, like Mrs. Hostin and Mrs. Behar, that the Christian faith is akin to a dangerous mental illness?"

Iger responded: "I don't know where I start. First of all, Joy Behar apologized to Vice President Pence directly. She made a call to him and apologized, which I thought was absolutely appropriate."
