Joy Behar faces backlash for Thanksgiving coming out advice

Throughout a current episode of “The View,” the comic weighed in on a discussion about talking politics over Thanksgiving supper. Behar recommended that gay individuals who have not come out to their households yet do so.

“I’d like to suggest to everybody out there, come out to your family this Thanksgiving,” she stated. “Just come out. See what happens.”

Behar stated she’s found out that “life is short” and she motivated gay individuals to be their genuine selves.

Not everybody valued her remarks on the delicate subject.

“How dare you take a very important and sensitive moment in someone who is part of the LGBTQIA Community & turn it into a joke?,” someone tweeted. “Some have been shunned from their family because of it. Not a joke. Be ashamed.”

CNN has actually connected to associates for Behar for remark.
