Joy Behar, co-host of "The View," is facing backlash for making a homophobic joke about an NFL player who came out as gay.

The hosts were discussing a recent announcement from Carl Nassib of the Las Vegas Raiders when Behar made the remarks.

"After they said penetration in the end zone, they lost me!" she said.

Behar's joke saw immediate backlash and was condemned by many on Twitter.

"Joy Behar makes a blatant homophobic comment. Will there be outrage? Will she be cancelled? No, because she's a Liberal," one critic said.

"F**k Joy Behar! Making an anal sex joke about a gay man coming out is utterly disgusting," replied another.

"This is completely unacceptable and beyond s***ty from Joy Behar," another said.

"The first active NFL player in history comes out of the closet, and he's met with a cheap anal sex joke on national TV?"

"Joy and people like her are why so many remain in the closet. It's NOT ok," read another tweet.

The only conservative on the panel not to laugh at the joke was Meghan McCain.

Behar anticipated outrage over her joke as she tied to walk it back before the segment even ended.

"By the way, that inappropriate joke I made for daytime television? Scratch it. Make believe I never said it," she said.

Nassib came out as gay on Instagram on Monday.

He became the first openly gay football player who is active on a team's roster.

Michael Sam was the first openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team in 2014, but he was cut before he could play in an in-season game.
