Well that took no time at all!

It’s been just about a week since The View returned to TV with a mostly new panel of co-hosts including Michelle Collins, Joy Behar, Raven Symon├â┬⌐, Whoopi Goldberg, and Paula Faris.

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.

Yesterday Collins apparently felt the need to express her opinion about the monologue as well as question why she was wearing a stethoscope during the segment. She shared:

“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.”

Quite a few people were offended by her comments and took to Twitter (below) to point out that stethoscopes aren’t just for doctors — nurses quite often have to use them too!

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??
