REPORT: Even More Major Advertisers Bail From THE VIEW In Wake Of Miss America/Nurses Mockery!

What started as out as two national advertisers on Thursday pulling out of the ABC‘s morning talker, The View has now gone up to five as of late Friday!

According to TMZ.com you add: Party City, McCormack and Snuggle to the advertiser list, along with previously announced Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best that have decided to remove their ads from the program.

It all stems from comments made earlier in the week by co-hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins, who poked fun at Miss America contestant Kelly Johnson.  Kelly, who was Miss Colorado, during the talent portion of the competition performed a “nursing monologue” dressed in hospital scrubs with a stethoscope around her neck. It was her attempt to deliver an emotional monologue about her chosen profession.

Courtesy/ABC

Collins first mocked it saying, “Shockingly (she) did not win.”  And Behar joked, “Why does she have a doctor’s stethoscope on?”  That raised the ire of the entire nursing community!  Even a #NursesUnite hashtag went viral after the commentary that was seemingly meant in jest by The View panelists, but not perceived that way by many in the viewing public.

McCormick, a Fortune 1000 company, replied on Facebook to an upset consumer, “Like you, we also value and admire nurses, so we have paused advertising on the daytime television show.”   However on Friday’s airshow, The View honored the nursing community and attempted to do some damage control by learning more about their life-saving profession by having some nurses with them during a segment of the broadcast.

So we ask:  Should The View just be cancelled at this point?  Did you take  offense to Collins and Behar’s comments, or were you thinking the same thing watching Miss Colorado’s performance?  What do you think about all the major advertisers pulling out of the show?

Watch Miss Colorado’s performance during Miss America that has spawned the headlines for The View below! And then, watch the clip of Behar welcoming guests from the nursing profession from today’s episode of the morning talker.  Then it’s your turn.  Weigh-in on The View’s latest debacle in the comment section below!

All of this is ridiculous. Nurses work hard, but since when is having an opinion on a talk show titled The View wrong? I think they’ve done enough apologizing.

It goes beyond attacking a nurse. This women was not some bimbo with her boobs hanging out! This was a clean cut women who helps others and isnt your typical gold digger! These yentas on the View attacked her with any disregard to what its like to work a real job and not have 10 people pampering you every day!

Cancel the trainwreck. This show stopped being important four years ago. Whoopi is a snooze. The other co-hosts are hacks except for Joy Behar and she only came back for the pay out. Cancel it.

Agreed! Joy has a filthy vulgar mouth and always has. She rarely thinks before she speaks. And she has always used The View to advance her personal platform and agenda, and anyone who disagrees with her, she gleefully throws them under the bus. For all her talk of tolerance and anti-bullying, she is the biggest bully and her playground is an international television viewing audience. She will insult everyone and everything including God! Nothing is off limits for her vile form of talk show. Having a talk show doesnt mean you can just make reckless comments about things you dont… Read more »

No, Joy Behar came back because of popular demand. We only see the negative perspective, but when she left, everyone was up in arms, including the producers. She had said her last farewell to THE VIEW, except to appear as a guest-host once in a blue moon. It’s not as if “they” were not familiar with her style… We all knew what we were getting….she’s no novice….and neither is Whoopi. Just because we hear of the odd few foaming at the mouth defaming these women on the panel, it does not mean it is the popular consensus. Both of them… Read more »

I think the big picture is not necessarily what the View women said BUT people coming to the nurses defense because it is a typically thankless job where nurses are underpaid and discharged as servants. I’ve seen in hospitals where patients run these nurses like they are their maids at a five star hotel. Thats what I think it is.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Yes, Timmm, there’s much truth in what you say. The majority of nurses are authentically caring professionals. But, I have also seen the opposite, where nurses are in a position of authority…..abusing said authority to the hilt with a select few patients. We have all heard horrid stories. This has been blown so out of proportion. Maybe a device should be invented for all of us to wear. That is, the device would beep crazily each time we made a faux pas. Sounds ridiculous? Of course. We live in a democracy where what we say is protected by certain rights.… Read more »

I think The View should be canceled but certainly not because of this incident which quite frankly, is much ado about nothing. When have we as a society become so thin skinned and humorless? When did we have to have the obvious explained to us? Joy simply wondered why she was seeing a stethoscope around the contestants neck during the talent portion. One is accustomed to seeing beauty contestants trotting in wearing tap shoes or holding an accordion or twirling a baton. It was a simple and harmless question. Perhaps if there was a snark it was directed toward the… Read more »

With all due respect, Cee Cee, we have had an awful lot of time to make a decision on Joy’s nasty behaviour. As the viewing audience, we had front row seats to it every morning. Your choice of “condemned” is a little extreme, though. In life, there are consequences to our actions. Too often, celebrities just get a Hall Pass on the consequence part and just go on acting like buffoons!! Maybe, even at her age, this will teach Joy something about her blunt rudeness.

Great quote! Nobody should be fired. The View is close to being canceled anyway! What I would do is have one of the women on the View tag along with a nurse on a shift and show it on the show. It would educate the panel and VIEWers and hopefully everyone hugs it out and there are no hard feelings!

Dee & others…”In the beginning,” maybe even a little before some commenters “viewed” The View, I watched because of Barbara Walters. Talk about a resume of interviewing some of the most important and influential people from show biz to politics, etc. during her career. Then she had a vision of an intelligent, entertaining woman’s talk show with panelists and guests representing many points of view, some of whom I didn’t like…but there was a balance to it. It became The View. But there was no competition for ratings like there is now…and now, no more of the Barbara influence. I… Read more »

Hi, Rose. Just as you say, no matter the talent, no matter the mode of dress, no matter the verbiage, once in the public eye, a body becomes fodder upon which one feeds. Joy just beat these other comedians, and then some, to the punch. This was a talent show; not an expose on nursing. We know what a sacrifice it is for these dedicated professionals, including all medical professionals. I am married to one. Long hours; long nights….. No, the competition, back in the day, was mostly non-existent….but, how can one blame the panelists? Joy was asked back because… Read more »

I saw that portion of the pageant and thought it was a strange talent. But whatever. I definitely feel these advertisers are over reacting a bit. They choose not to advertise, so as a consumer, I can choose not to buy their products. Also , both Joy and Michelle apologized. We all respect nurses and the amazing job they do, so let’s just move on.

Harry

Maureen, I think that is where Joy was coming from. It also seems to me that nursing is a profession and the nurse was exhibiting a skill, not a talent.

Quite watching The View years ago. For me it totally lost it’s way as an interesting, relevant show. But I did watch clips of both the contestant and View comments on her performance to see what the fuss was about. Just reinforces why I quit watching. Or any so called “comedy” that puts other people down. Sometimes I wonder if it’s just payback for grievances suffered as a kid. Also sad many find this kind of “humor” funny.

Ahem, Joy simply asked why a beauty contestant was wearing a stethoscope for the talent competition.
Some of the nurses (albeit not all) collective outrage is doing more to harm their profession than Joy’s innocent query. Those who can not stop shrilling about it appear to be thin skinned, humor challenged and insecure.

I did watch the Miss America pageant live. I saw the monologue by Kelly Johnson. It was unique. The content of the monologue was quite moving. But I didn’t know Kelly was a nurse herself. I thought Kelly was an actress delivering a monologue. Glad to know that now because although I liked the content of the monologue, I was judging her performance thinking actress and found her wanting. When she was eliminated from the competition I wasn’t surprised because I thought as an actress she wasn’t very good. Now that I know the real story behind her monologue, the… Read more »

Harry
Guest

I like Joy–I liked Nicole Wallace but The View stupidly let her go.
Honestly, I was more upset about Whoopi’s “it’s not rape-rape” comment as well as her defense of Bill Cosby in the face of fifty rape allegations. I did not see this kind of collective and hysterical outrage garnered against Whoopi for those comments/defense as I am seeing being waged against Joy for her innocent query about the stethoscope.
But I do agree with you–it’s time to cancel The View but not because of this latest brau ha ha.

Right on, Harry!! I always loved Whoopi. But that comment…not really rape, rape, just turned all my lights off.

Yeah Whoopi is the worst. She’s always defending her Hollyweird pals like Bill Cosby and director Roman P. that had sex with the underaged girl. But I’m sure Whoopi went off about Jared at Subway since he’s not a friend.

Harry…After reading one of your comments, one of the reasons I quit watching the view was Elizabeth. I don’t mind different points of view and spirited debates, but I don’t need an evangelist shill for a political party. Also Sherri drove me nuts. This is when I did like a Joy because she took her on. But I don’t really like Joy’s sense of “humor” many times, or her and Whoopi’s defense of what I call anti-comedians who do standup by insulting, not being really funny.

Kelly’s message was about what is important to her and relevant in all our lives was Bold and Brave . Performing a monologue is not easy and she did it with grace and honest emotion. It is disappointing that the women on The View missed it . Their glib shallowness was revealed.

Rose
Guest

Wendy…I think you are so right. We always applaud other “hero acts” all of the time, usually military, or even the American guys visiting in Europe who tackled the terrorist on the train, etc. It would have been nice if they actually listened to what Kelly said, and realized what she and many others try to do for loved ones and friends can also be appreciated. They could have talked in a positive way about how she broke beauty pageant cliche’ with her monologue. Instead they made a joke of her “uniform” and not doing the typical tap dance.

they fear the power of twitter, which can make or break anything..
The sponsors fear the news media, who no longer just report the news they use and exploit some stories for entertainment to get viewers.
The days of Walter Cronkite when news was told as news is long gone- now anything controversial is used to entertain..
And that is why the sponsor tucked tail and ran, for their protection .

If cancellation were threatened anytime a View panelist said something offensive, there would be a non-stop cloud of cancellation over the show.

That said, for me, Joy Behar is the true star and only tolerable personality in the show’s history. She is also a comedian, so let’s give her a little leeway.

As I said, when in the public eye, there will always be the potential of getting squashed.

As Spiderman’s uncle might say…”With great power (in this case, freedom of speech) comes great responsibility.” Remember there are people with feelings and opinions on the receiving end of certain comments and “humor.” So the other side of free speech, don’t be surprised on how some people “hear” it.

Good try bringing all the nurses on your show. Shame it didn’t work! What is so wonderful about these women. Joy had two shows that failed. Yes, she went to college, so did the nurses! A lot of people went to college, but they do not insult someone who works as hard as a nurse. I have five nurses in my family and they picked on the wrong person, as I personally take it as an insult. Don’t mess with my kids! By the way, I am very very proud of all of them!

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”
