Fans of the popular talk show The View are voicing their frustration over Sunny Hostin’s seemingly lack of respect towards her co-hosts.
In a growing surge of complaints on Twitter, viewers have been pointing out her purported bullying tactics of late, that includes interrupting her fellow panelists and talking over them during on-air conversations, as reported by The Sun.
Many of them singled out Alyssa Farah Griffin as being the co-host who’s oftentimes at the receiving end of Hostin’s disrespectful behavior.
Some fans had apparently had enough of her antics after watching Thursdays episode and decided to take to social media to voice their concerns.
The multi-generational panel of women, which is also co-hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Ana Navarro, Sara Haines, to go along with Hostin and Griffin, discuss the hot topics of the day, such as sociopolitical and entertainment news.
Fan backlash: Fans of The View have taken to social media to demand that Sunny Hostin show some respect for her fellow co-host and stop interrupting them and stop talking over them, especially Alyssa Farah Griffin
Disrespectful accusations: From the sounds of a number of tweets, viewers have gotten tired of Hostin’s purported bullying of other panelists by interrupting them and talking over them during on-air conversations; Alyssa Farah Griffin appears to have been singled out as the one who was disrespected the most
‘Will you let Alyssa speak?? It’s becoming more difficult to watch! Sunny is just rude and don’t disagree with her!’ one viewer wrote on Twitter, which is a good example how many others are feeling on the subject on social media.
There would be plenty of others who would direct their grievances at Hostin, who’s a lawyer.
‘Can you let Alyssa finish a sentence? Tell sunny to have some respect,’ one fan tweeted.
‘#TheView there goes Sunny again interrupting her co-host rambling for 5+ minutes to a commercial!” another person fan wrote.
‘Sunny you need to stop talking over the others – Sarah and Alyssa especially,’ another person shared, adding, ‘They are far more interesting and impartial than you are- you are so biased.’
One viewer suggested that all the other panelists give Hostin, 54, a dose of her own medicine when she’s trying to make a point.
“Please let your co-host finish their point of views as they do for you! Sometimes I wish they would do us all a favor and interrupt you at times! Oh boy.”
Some people who voiced their complaints about the disrespectful behavior against Griffin, who’s a political strategist, actually spread the blame to all of the other ladies.
Hot seats: Currently in its 26th season, the multi-generational panel of women, which is co-hosted by Ana Navarro, 51, Sara Haines, 45, Whoopi Goldberg, 67, Joy Behar, ,80, Alyssa Farah Griffin , 33,and Sunny Hostin, 54, discuss the hot topics of the day, such as sociopolitical and entertainment news
Grievances: ‘Will you let Alyssa speak?? It’s becoming more difficult to watch! Sunny is just rude and don’t disagree with her!’ one viewer wrote on Twitter, which is a good example how many others are feeling on the subject on social media
‘They never let her finish her point…they are bullies’ and “@ABC @TheView The View hosts are constantly cutting off @Alyssafarah’, are two examples of the other five co-hosts being blamed for cutting off Griffin.
Some Fans offered Wednesday’s show as supporting evidence to the five ladies showing a lack of respect for Griffin, 33.
The ladies were sharing their thoughts on the dystopian artificial intelligence advertisement that the Republican National Committee released in response to President Joe Biden’s bid for re-election in 2024.
Many of the fans came to the defense of Griffin, and asked Hostin and her colleagues to stop being ‘rude’ towards Griffin and let her finish her thoughts and statements
Both Hostin and Behar were united in denouncing the video. Behar , 80,went as far as to call it a ‘losing strategy’, while Hostin described it as another example of a fearmongering tactic.’
Once Hostin finished her thoughts, Griffin started giving her take on the GOP campaign clip, and how it could further turn people off to lending their support to Republican candidates. As she continued on with her statement on the subject, Behar cut her off and asked her if she would re-elect President Biden or former President Donald Trump.
Currently in its 26th season, The View made its premiere back in August 1997 with a panel that consisted of journalists Barbara Walters and Meredith Vieira, lawyer Star Jones, television host and journalist Debbie Matenopoulos and comedian Joy Behar.
Throughout its run, The View has had 24 permanent co-hosts of varying characteristics and ideologies, with the number of contracted permanent co-hosts ranging between four and eight women per season.
