However, those on-air apologies and tributes to nurses are now suspect.
Comic Nicole Arbour — recently in the spotlight for her viral fat-shaming video — was backstage at The View and claimed to have witnessed what happened after producers realized the show's comments about nurses were not received well on social media.
Arbour appeared on Sirius radio's "Opie and Jim Norton" show and shared her story.
"Backstage, I heard the girls being like, 'Oh yeah, our nurse jokes didn’t go over well so we have to apologize because they’re tweeting us too much,'" the controversial comedian said.
Arbor called out the women of The View for not standing behind their jokes and said, "I can sit in my jokes and be like, yeah, I made them, I think it’s funny."
"When the cameras weren’t rolling, Michelle was like 'Yeah, that’s not a real profession. They want to be doctors,'" she continued, calling the apology "fake."
