The View is having a rough week. But Ellen DeGeneres is WINNING.
First, nurses around the country banded together using the hashtag “#NursesUnite” after feeling outraged by some of Joy Behar’s comments earlier this week. Behar was talking about Miss Colorado’s talent at the Miss America pageant this past Sunday, and made some offensive comments when she said that nursing wasn’t a talent…and proceeded to mock Miss Colorado’s talent.
Yeah, obviously that didn’t go over well. And while The View tried to issue an apology (A weak one, if I may say so myself), it was too late as advertisers Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s best announced that they were pulling their sponsorships.
On the OTHER side of things, Ellen DeGeneres was celebrating nurses yesterday on her show and invited Miss Colorado herself on to talk about the now infamous monologue…and to surprise her with something truly AWESOME.
Check out the interview below:
This is why we love Ellen! And Miss Colorado :)
