While ‘The View‘ has always had a reputation of getting heated, fans believe that Meghan McCain has taken it too far. A petition was created several years ago to have McCain removed from the show, but it has gained popularity in recent months after McCain went on several aggressive rants. During one of those rants, she even stormed off of the stage. The petition requested 5,000 signatures and it’s currently at 4,966. The question is, will ABC listen and removed the late politician’s daughter?
“Anyone who like me has watched The View for years and has seen the sourness and immaturity that Meghan has brought to the show doesn’t need much persuasion,” the petition reads. “Let’s get her OFF our favorite morning show and back to Faux News where she can safely keep discussing Obama possibly faking tears with onions after little children were murdered at school.”
Many viewers have been pushing for Ana Navarro to take McCain’s place after calling McCain out for yelling.
The comments section of the petition is full of criticism directed at McCain’s behavior on the show.
“The worst decision ever for The View was bringing Meghan McCain on the View,” one person wrote. “She is so disrespectful to her fellow co-hosts, especially to Joy. I know she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth but she failed miserably at leaning about kindness, patience and respect for others. The View will never earn an Emmy while she is on the show.”
People even revealed that they have stopped watching the show because of the aggressive way that she talks to her co-hosts.
“She is very disrespectful, she thinks she is the only one that holds the truth and she is not tolerant with people who disagree with her,” another viewer commented. “I sometimes don’t even want to watch the show because I get really stressed out by the horrible environment she creates.”
“The View has been unwatchable since her very first immature rant,” commented a third.
“I wanted to see a balanced viewpoint that would bring something different to the table, not a whiny, interrupting teenager who takes every comment about everything personally.”
McCain seems to be taking this position and the feedback seriously. According to PopCulture, she revealed to Andy Cohen on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ that she fears being fired from the show everyday. While her relationships with the co-hosts behind the scenes seems to be flourishing, she may want to work on her on-screen presence.
