The fallout continues over comments two hosts made on The View, about Miss Colorado’s Miss America monologue about being a nurse.
Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best Eggs have both announced they will no longer advertise on show following the comments.
Johnson & Johnson said Thursday the company was taking the money saved from pulling ads from “a certain daytime program to good use,” and announced a new donation drive for nursing scholarships.
Likewise, Eggland’s Best said Thursday that the company “appreciates nurses and values the important role they play in family health. In light of the comments about the nursing profession recently made on daytime television, we will no longer be advertising on the show in question.”
Joy Behar and Michelle Collins came under fire for comments the two made on Monday about Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson’s monologue, in which she told the story of “Joe,” an Alzheimer’s patient that Johnson cared for.
“…She came in a nurse’s uniform, and basically read her emails out loud,” comedian and co-host Collins said of Johnson’s monologue.
