‘The View’ Fans Threaten Boycott After ABC’s Hiring Decision

News

The View fans threaten to boycott the show after ABC’s abrupt decision. They are aghast over the news that Alyssa Farah Griffin is the new co-host. They took to social media to call out ABC for “keeping them in dark” about the news.

Fans had no idea that she was going to pop up in the latest episode of the show. Read on to learn about this sudden news and to see the reaction.

Alyssa Farah Griffin will replace Meghan McCain

ABC hired Alyssa Farah Griffin to replace Meghan McCain, who left The View last year. However, fans claim there was “no mention” of this hiring decision anywhere. The news first popped up on DailyMail.com where they teased that her new position would be revealed soon.

Sources confirmed to the British outlet that Alyssa will join the current panel, which includes Joy Behar, Sarah Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg for The View’s 26th season, which starts in September 2022. She will become the new conservative host who will replace the controversial Meghan McCain.

Lindsey Granger was also in the running for the same role. Some fans thought she was the perfect fit for the daytime program. They didn’t want someone else controversial to fill that seat. The role of the conservative host was filled by celebrities like Candace Cameron Bure and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

On Wednesday, July 27, Alyssa made her big debut. Yet, the panel didn’t share any information about this news. The former political advisor joined her fellow co-hosts as the show went on as usual. Apparently, Alyssa made her debut sooner than expected.

This didn’t go over with fans of The View. They would’ve liked a heads-up first. Others would’ve wanted to offer their input on who should’ve become the new host. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, fans also wanted actress Selma Blair to become the new host.

Fans of The View are divided over ABC’s decision

Fans of The View are divided over this rash decision. Most of them tweeted their reaction as Wednesday’s episode aired. They were shocked by ABC’s silence over their hiring decision. Some are even threatening to boycott the long-running series.

  • “Getting my last days in per when they make whatever announcement I’ll stop watching.”
  • “THEY SAID NOTHING!”
  • “No mention of Alyssa Farah Griffin officially joining #TheView at the top of today’s show… all signs point to a mid-August announcement, despite yesterday’s reports.”
  • “I’ll be quitting.”

However, other fans of The View were excited to see Alyssa. Her presence made their day. Some took to her Twitter account to congratulate her on the new job.

The reason why she’s causing controversy is that she was the former communications director to the 45th president Donald Trump. While Alyssa has openly criticized him, she still remains conservative in her views. Fans think the show should’ve gone with someone who doesn’t have Trump ties.

What are your thoughts on Alyssa joining The View? Do you think the show should’ve made an announcement? Who do you think should join? Sound off below in the comment section.
