‘NOT A REAL PROFESSION’: HOSTS OF ABC’s THE VIEW TRASH NURSES AFTER ON-AIR APOLOGY:

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.’

Well, not everyone can fulfill the vital role of daytime talk show host.

The View has been running on fumes ever since Barbara Walters retired last year, but it’s curious that the show lost sponsors over catty nurse jokes, because I don’t recall seeing any articles about advertisers deserting after Walters’ then-cohost was in full-on raging “Truther” mode a decade ago.
