News that television host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving “The View” and heading to “Fox & Friends” has sparked a variety of comments from both supporters and detractors, alike. While the personality has received a great deal of praise, some critics have also taken to social media to send nasty and virulent messages her way.

But those are some of the more benign responses. Others were more angry and mean-spirited, ranging in both intensity and offensiveness.

While another critic advanced the notion that Hasselbeck has sold her soul to the devil (an apparent accusation that working for Fox News is an evil act), it didn’t end there. She was also called the c-word and was accused of being fired from “The View” — and not willingly leaving — by one apparently angry Twitter user.

Below, see just a few of these more harsh responses:

Elisabeth Hasselbeck has finally sold her soul to the devil!

One is so vile (the c-word) we had to redact it:

In addition to purposefully insulting, others noted how happy they were that they would never need to watch or hear from Hasselbeck again (although it’s unclear why these people simply couldn’t turn the channel when they saw her on “The View”).

I'm a liberal NY Jew Democrat but today I'll say praise Jesus that I never have to see or hear Elisabeth Hasselbeck ever again! @

And then there’s “General Hospital” soap actress Nancy Lee Grahn who insinuated that Hasselbeck doesn’t have a conscience:

If Republican, I could get fired, never read a newspaper & always have job 2 go 2. Life sucks when u've a conscience http://t.co/IGjFcDAc2P

While these negative messages were certainly rampant on social media, most people were encouraging — even those who don’t necessarily agree with the television host’s politics. Many, in fact, thanked Hasselbeck for her insight and for offering a different perspective.

Starting in September, the conservative media personality will be replacing current “Fox & Friends” host Gretchen Carlson, who is moving to an afternoon news slot.
