The View co-host Joy Behar is a comedian, but some of the ABC show's fans didn't find a joke she made very funny.
On Tuesday's episode, the ladies discussed former White House Staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman's claims that Vice President Mike Pence says he talks to Jesus.
Joy joked: "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."
Guest co-host Sherri Shepherd replied, saying: "You know Joy, as a Christian, that's just par for the course. You talk to Jesus, Jesus talks back. What concerns me is, how long is the conversation with Jesus?"
Whoopi attempted to diffuse the conversation, pointing out, "We all get to believe how we wish to believe."
Joy later attempted to clarify her remarks, saying: "Say what you want about Mike Pence and his religiosity and everything else, I don't think that he's mentally ill, even though he says he is hearing voices. I don't think he's that crazy."
But her clarification didn't seem to appease offended fans.
One fan tweeted: "If Joy Behar spoke about gays the way she speaks about Christians – she would be fired."
Another viewer wrote: "God has spoken to me at times in my life and saved my life during some of those times."
And that was just the beginning, as Twitter was overwhelmed with outrage about Joy's comments. These are just a taste of what was said:

Shame on @ABCNetwork for allowing @TheView to spread such hatred towards Christians. God has spoken to me at times in my life and saved my life during some of those times. Joy Behar portraying Christians as mental illness victims is wrong! Fire those hateful women who spew hate!

@TheView Behar should apologize to Christians for mocking their faith. If Jesus created the universe & "humans," does she think He can't speak to us any way He wants? She said she's Catholic. Did she miss the basics of the faith? Is she now atheist?
