“The View” Has Lost Two Advertisers for Their Comments About Nurses
During Sunday’s “Miss America” pageant, Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson did a monologue for the talent portion. She came out in her nurse’s uniform, and talked about a patient of hers who had early Alzheimer’s.
On “The View” Monday, the ladies were talking about it, and it didn’t go well. Michelle Collins basically said it was awful. Then Joy Behar asked why Kelley was wearing, quote, “a doctor’s stethoscope.”
It was Joy’s comment that really got under people’s skin, because it seemed like she was belittling nurses. But on Wednesday’s show she clarified that she didn’t know Kelley was in a nurse’s uniform. She thought she was in some kind of costume, since it was the talent segment, so she legitimately didn’t understand the stethoscope. Collins also apologized.
Joy took her case to Twitter, saying, quote, “Let me say that I have enormous respect for nurses. I did not mean to offend these hard working, dedicated professionals. I am truly sorry to anyone I have offended.” Still, “The View” has lost TWO sponsors over this, at least for now. Both Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best have suspended their advertising.
