"I don't know that I want my vice president, um - speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him", co-host Sunny Hostin said.

The Washington Post also talked to Behar's manager Bill Stankey, who confirmed that she really apologized to the vice president through a phone call.

Multiple reports revealed that Iger was asked during the company's shareholder meeting on Thursday about the controversial tirade of Behar against the U.S. vice president during the daytime talk show where told her co-hosts that Pence's faith is a "mental illness" during the show's February 13 broadcast.

Mr. Pence's interview, scheduled to air Monday night on the Fox News program "Hannity", confirmed an account by Disney CEO Bob Iger at a shareholder meeting last week that Ms. Behar had apologized to Mr. Pence.

Pence took umbrage at Behar's "mental illness" statement and lashed out at Disney-owned ABC. "But, I felt it was important that I defend the faith of tens of millions of Americans against that kind of slander".

"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?" shareholder Justin Danhof asked Iger directly at Thursday's meeting. "We're better than that", Pence later said in response.

Pence did not appreciate Behar's remark, and used an on-stage interview with Axios a day later to criticize Behar for what he called a religious "insult".

MRC President Brent Bozell issued a statement declaring that Behar's private apology was "not almost enough" and promised to continue his campaign against "anti-Christian bigotry" at the network.
