Well that took no time at all!
In that week they've already managed to offend people with some of their commentary about one of the contestants in the Miss America pageant being a nurse — to which they've already apologized (below)!
During the talent the portion of the contest, Miss Colorado, Kelley Johnson, performed a monologue which talked quite a bit about her profession as a nurse.
"The talent, though, I have to say, the woman who won sang opera, and she was incredible. Really good. But then there was a girl who wrote her own monologue and I was like 'Turn the volume up, this is going be amazing, let's listen'. She came out in a nurse's uniform and basically read her emails out loud and shockingly did not win."
Behar chimed with disbelief as Collins replied:
"I swear to God it was hilarious."
Behar then inquired as to why Johnson was even wearing a stethoscope as a nurse to which Collins said:
"She helps patients with Alzheimer's, which I know is not funny, but I swear you had to see it."
A lot of the backlash came from women who were nurses:
Well today, the ladies took a moment out of their show to apologize for their previous statements and express how much they love nurses (below):
What do you think? Did the ladies on The View deserve the backlash — and do you accept their apology??
