It seems like almost every single day another racist employee, figure-head, celebrity, or internet personality is brought to light, and rightfully asked to explain their actions. Recently, The View had a lot to discuss in regards to an ABC News executive, Barbara Fedida, who was placed on leave after The Huffington Post reported that she had a history of making racist remarks about Black employees, including The View co-host, Sunny Hostin.
While Barbara denies any of the allegations made against her, that didn’t stop Sunny and the other women on The View from talking about what happened and what it meant for ABC’s culture and The View in general.
Sunny thanked her co-hosts for their support.
While Sunny expressed her deep disappointment in ABC execs, she did thank her coworkers for stepping up to support her. “Meghan [McCain] and I had, at least, an hour conversation this weekend,” she said. “Whoopi, you were so supportive. Joy, you were so supportive … And I thank you all for that.”
Meghan McCain added that The View has “zero tolerance” for racism and insensitivity. She continued, “I am disgusted by these allegations, as everyone is. There’s a lot of people that say a lot of things about these hosts and this show in the press, but when you attack one of us, you’re attacking all of us.”
