Joy Behar scolded some male members of the studio audience on “The View” on Tuesday for not applauding Christine Blasey Ford during her live interview.

Ford, who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault during his Supreme Court nomination process in 2018, joined “The View” co-hosts on Tuesday to discuss her new memoir, “One Way Back,” in which she her experiences surrounding the testimony described the harrowing hearings. She said she received over 100,000 letters of support and revealed that she dedicated the book to the people who wrote the letters.

Behar asked about it the percentage of letters she received from men. Ford revealed it was about 10% and called it “male mail.”

“They must understand, they must step in to help us. We can’t do this ourselves. I notice it, I watch how people clap. Some of the men in that audience didn’t clap,” Behar said, gesturing to those in attendance.

Someone in the room could be heard saying “Wow” after Behar noticed that some of the men weren’t applauding.

Ford said she received letters from all 50 states and 42 countries after the hearings.

“We read about 30,000 of them and about 25% were from sexual assault survivors,” Blasey Ford said.

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, who was working in the Trump administration at the time of the hearings, asked Ford what she wanted readers to take away from her memoir.

“I think people will hopefully be able to relate to a lot of different things in the book, like what it’s like to speak up in any situation and what it’s like to be subject to retaliation, but also that “It’s survivable, and that’s even more important.” “We all find a way to be polite, respectful, listen to each other and support each other,” Ford said during the media appearance.

Ford said in a statement about her memoir in 2023 that the book would contain “riveting new details about the lead-up” to her Senate testimony and its “overwhelming consequences.” It also includes accounts of how she received death threats and how difficult it was to live her life after becoming a public figure.

In September 2018, Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while drunk at a high school party in the early 1980s.

Ford alleged that Kavanaugh held her down on a bed and tried to remove her clothing while covering her mouth with his hand. At the hearing she said: “I thought he was going to rape me. I tried to scream for help. When I did that, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming.”

Kavanaugh strongly denied the accusation and was ultimately narrowly confirmed this year.
