Joy, 80, spoke to her co-stars about her glamorous evening at the White House Christmas party.

But the comedian made sure to mention how she had a “scary” experience while her friends were enjoying the event.

“You were talking about what you did yesterday, do you want to know what happened to me yesterday?” she started.

“I got stuck in my elevator. It felt like half an hour, and I was alone. Every time I pressed ‘lobby’, the thing would go to the lobby and the door wouldn’t open.

“I was like ‘LET ME OUT,’” she yelled, pretending to bang on the door.


Joy’s troubling experience in the elevator followed her on-air blunder earlier this week.

When the actress mixed up the names of two people, fans rose up in arms and took to social media.

On Thursday’s show, the View panel discussed Brittney Griner’s release from a Russian prison.

Russian courts sentenced her to nine years for smuggling drugs into the country.

As the women talked about why they thought Brittney received a longer sentence than most and came to the conclusion that it was because she is a public figure, Joy spoke up.

“Historically, I think governments like to use sports figures for political reasons. I know this story about the Olympics with Jesse Helms,” he said.

“When we were fighting the Nazis and Hitler used a black man and said he was going to show how superior the German race is to other races and Jesse Helms kicked their butts.”

Whoopi chimed in and corrected her, saying, “Not Jesse Helms. Not Jesse Helms,” she said.

“I always said Jesse Helms,” Joy said, before correcting herself. Jesse Owens. Not Jesse Helms. He was a senator.

“I know you do,” Whoopi replied.

“Jesse Owens kicked their ass, a black racer, and embarrassed them. They thought they were going to get something out but they couldn’t,” Joy concluded.

Jesse Owens was an American track and field athlete while Jesse Helms was an American politician.


View watchers took to Twitter to express their frustration that Joy messed up the men’s names.

“How do you confuse Jessie Owens with Jessie Helms…really Joy? #TheView,” asked one fan.

To that, someone replied, “Hahahaha. She has done it several times”.

“Wow lol the Jesse Owens/Jesse Helms #theview thing,” tweeted one longtime watcher.

A Twitter user responded to them, saying: “Absolutely ridiculous.”

“Jesse Helms? Joy, fix your shit. He is Jesse Owens,” one fan tweeted with an eye-roll emoji.


Earlier this week, View fans criticized Whoopi for snubbing Joy at the start of the show.

While revealing a major cast shakeup for the broadcast, the moderator completely forgot about her longtime co-host.

Shortly after The View began airing on Monday, fans were quick to notice that there seemed to be a few no-shows.

There were four hosts at the table, instead of five, and the lineup still had to have an invited co-host to reach that number.

Joy, Sara Haines, and Sunny Hostin disappeared during the episode.

Hosts Whoopi, Ana Navarro and Alyssa Farah Griffin were joined at the table by ABC News’ Juju Chang, who has been a guest co-host in the past.

While the moderator mentioned some of her missing colleagues, viewers criticized her for not mentioning all of them.


Fans quickly took to Twitter to ask about all the missing panelists, as well as criticize Whoopi for not mentioning Joy’s name.

One social media user criticized: “No mention of #JoyBehar’s absence, that’s not correct Whoopi.

Another criticized: “Then, Whoopi announced that both Sara and Sunny are free today.

“Ummm, it looks like Joy isn’t at the table either, but Whoopi didn’t mention her. What’s up with that???”
