‘That’s not a real profession. They want to be doctors’: What Michelle Collins allegedly said AFTER The View apologized for mocking a Miss America nurseFriday, following several days of apologies for offensive comments mocking nurses and the nursing profession, The View wrapped up a rocky week with a segment dedicated to saluting nurses. Entertainer Nicole Arbour, who appeared on the ABC talk show Friday to defend her controversial “Dear Fat People” video, told “Opie with Jim Norton” she had heard a “View” co-host insult nurses backstage — during the very same episode the hosts apologized for mocking the health care professionals. “When the cameras weren’t rolling, Michelle [Collins] was like, ‘Yeah, that’s not a real profession.Michelle Collins of The View reportedly joked about nurses backstage at the show on Wednesday even after apologizing on air to the Miss America contestant who was mocked by the ladies after she wore her scrubs and a stethoscope on stage during last weekend’s competition.Host Whoopi Goldberg credited Arbour for even stopping by and facing the music over the video that many people have called bullying and fat-shaming. (Arbour claims that fat-shaming is not a “thing.”) “If we offend you so much that you lose weight, I’m OK with that.

Kelley Johnson of Colorado delivered a monologue about being a nurse on Sunday – and the next day on The View hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins made fun of her speech and outfit. The program has since lost five major advertisers – Johnson & Johnson, Eggland’s Best, Party City, Snuggle and McCormick – and is now facing another possible battle after claims made by guest host Nicole Arbour.

On Friday’s show, during which the show welcomed 52 nurses to its stage, Behar said it was now “abundantly clear” to them that nurses wear stethoscopes. They want to be doctors.’ Appearing on Opie and Jim Norton, Arbour said: ‘Backstage, I heard the girls being like, “Oh yeah, our nurse jokes didn’t go over well so we have to apologize because they’re tweeting us too much.” ‘And I’m like, “you all are pu**ies.” See, I can sit in my jokes and be like, yeah, I made them, I think it’s funny. They’re like, ‘You can’t make fun of some people, and not make fun of me, too.” “You take it on yourself first, and then maybe you can do a joke, but you didn’t do that and then you sort of hide behind this, ‘Well, it’s not healthy.’ That’s bull, and you know it. I’m just having a bit of fun, and that’s what we did.” “I’m a comic,” Behar said, “so if I’m going to make a joke about a fat person, I’m going to call myself ‘fat’ first. But the movie’s director, Pat Mills, saw her YouTube video. “‘Dear Fat People’ is an unfunny and cruel fat-shaming video that guises itself about being about ‘health,’” Mills told People. “It’s fat-phobic and awful.

Nicole was brought down to the backstage area for her segment after the show started.’ The night of the pageant Collins also reportedly posted tweets about Johsnon, and after getting backlash from nurses on social media wrote; ‘I mean it is a little funny the hidden anger you nurses possess.’ ‘Thank you for expressing your concerns. Snuggle wrote; ‘In placing our advertising for Snuggle we choose time slots, (and not programs), during which to run our spots; so the airing of an advertisement should not be interpreted as brand sponsorship or endorsement of any program or its content. It was just stupid and inattentive on my part.’ She even shared a photo of herself in her scrubs at work, writing; ‘Here is a picture of me working as a nurse, as my special project this year was being the volunteer school nurse at a local underprivileged middle school for 35 hours a month. Here’s my tip: volunteer for a cause that means something to you. ‘I’m passionate about taking care of people, and I was a better school nurse because I truly enjoyed every moment caring for those children and educating their families.
