"The View" Views Nurses As Angry, Wannabe Doctors
After co-hosts Michelle Collins and Joy(less) Behar aired a segment where they ridiculed a nurse who participated in the Miss America contest, the embattled gabfest found itself consumed by social media blowback, which eventually resulted in the loss of five major advertisers: Johnson & Johnson, Eggland’s Best, Party City, Snuggle and McCormick.
Wednesday, in the hopes of containing the fallout, the women offered an on-air apology. According to Nicole Arbour, a guest co-host, the apology was far from sincere. She claims that after the apology, while the show was not on the air, the ladies went right back to trashing nurses, ‘Yeah, that’s not a real profession. They want to be doctors.’
The nasty, catty, snobby, elitism of “The View” is finally coming home to roost.
So full of themselves, so desperate for “controversy” and out-of-touch with the everyday woman, not only are the show’s ratings in the dumpster, the co-hosts are now openly and gleefully insulting those who dare not be elites — you know, like those dumb hicks who become nurses as opposed to mouthy hens on a low-rated talk show.
Now that most mainstream comedians bow to Power and political correctness, all that’s left is smut and mocking the Powerless.
The night of the pageant Collins also reportedly posted tweets about Johsnon, and after getting backlash from nurses on social media wrote; 'I mean it is a little funny the hidden anger you nurses possess.'
“Johnson & Johnson values and appreciates nurses and we respect the critical role they play in our healthcare system,” the company told TheWrap. “We disagree with recent comments on daytime television about the nursing profession and we have paused our advertising accordingly.”
Egglands’s Best was quick to follow suit, and released a statement saying the company has also pulled its advertisements from the show.
