Apostrophe in title no longer deleted in slug

Description

My client is creating post titles that contain an apostrophe. It's hard to avoid because his restaurant name includes " ... Joe's " The slug that is created is now retaining the apostrophe in the URL. This creates a server error when opening that post. I am manually having to go behind him and deleting the apostrophe in quick edit.

What's strange is that previous posts in an earlier version (2.7 or 2.8 - I can't remember, we are on 2.9 now) automatically deleted the apostrophe along with other bad characters such as exclamation marks.

Example:
