UPDATE: Caitlyn Jenner has a message for The View's Joy Behar, which comes hours after the co-host used the incorrect pronouns for the I Am Cait star.
"Don't sweat it, @JoyVBehar," Caitlyn began her Twitter post on Friday, April 23. "I'm not about cancel culture. I know where your heart is. California has bigger issues than pronouns."
Read more below to get details on what happened early on Friday.
Joy Behar has apologized for using the incorrect pronouns when referring to Caitlyn Jenner.
On Friday's episode of The View, Caitlyn's newly announced run for California governor was brought up, during which Joy misgendered the Olympian and transgender rights advocate more than once. At one point Joy corrected herself, saying, "[Brad Parscale] is running his campaign—or her campaign, rather."
After returning from commercial break, Joy blamed the self-described "mix-up" on a lack of sleep.
"So first of all let me apologize for my pronoun mix-up," the longtime co-host said. "I think I just didn't get enough sleep last night. I had no intention of mixing them up, and I tried to correct it immediately, but whatever, it just came out. So I'm sorry if anybody was upset by that."
Hours ago, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum confirmed rumors of her political aspirations. Caitlyn, 71, announced she filed paperwork to run for California's top office and asked supporters to donate to the campaign.
In her announcement, the lifelong Republican said her gubernatorial run will offer a "roadmap back to prosperity to turn this state around and finally clean up the damage [Governor Gavin] Newsom has done to this state."
Caitlyn's statement concluded, "The significance of this decision is not lost on me. The sacrifice is significant. But responsibility is great, and I can't wait to lead, to help and most importantly, to disrupt the status quo once again... I'm in!"
In a website launched with the tagline "Caitlyn for California," the former athlete turned reality TV star is already selling merchandise promoting the campaign.
Members of the Kardashian-Jenner family, including daughters Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, have not commented on Caitlyn's run for governor. Sophia Hutchins, Caitlyn's longtime friend and colleague, liked her Instagram announcement.

Whoopi Goldberg Says She'd Leave The View Only If This Happened
Whoopi Goldberg has been a co-host on The View since 2007. But she doesn't have plans to leave the talk show anytime soon.
Ever since 2007, Whoopi Goldberg has been a co-host on The View—and she doesn't plan on leaving the show anytime soon.
"I'm there until I don't think I can do it anymore, but I'm not there yet," the 65-year-old star told Variety for its pre-Oscars issue. "As long as they allow me to do both [acting and hosting], I can do it. The minute they say, ‘No, you can't,' then I have to figure out what to do."
During her 14-year tenure, Goldberg has been nominated for multiple Daytime Emmy Awards, winning Outstanding Talk Show Host with Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters in 2009. Of course, this isn't the only trophy on her shelf.
Goldberg is one of 16 people to reach EGOT status—winning another Emmy for her hosting of the 2001 TV special Beyond Tara: The Extraordinary Life of Hattie McDaniel, a Grammy for her 1985 Best Comedy Recording, an Oscar for her supporting role in the 1990 movie Ghost and a 2002 Tony for her producing of the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie. However, Goldberg said she hadn't even heard of the prestigious EGOT title until she appeared on a 2009 episode of 30 Rock. As she told the publication, "That was the first time I was made aware that I was an EGOT winner."
