ABC is ensuring that people won’t have to be subjected to Kelly Osbourne’s bout with mouth diarrhea on The View (at least in high-definition).
Earlier this week, the pink-haired guest host made a play for Donald Trump criticism when she said, “if you kick every Latino out of this country, who is going to be cleaning your toilet [Donald Trump]?” Of course, this set off a fire storm (especially for Puerto Rican host Rosie Perez) and a whole lot of apologizing from Osbourne. Now the episode has been eradicated from Hulu’s online streaming service.
An episode of “The View” featuring guest co-host Kelly Osbourne making a comment offensive to Latinos has been pulled from ABC.com and streaming service Hulu, TheWrap has learned.
A representative for Hulu confirmed the Osbourne episode was no longer available, and deferred TheWrap to ABC for further comment. ABC has not yet returned a request for comment.
Both Hulu and ABC.com list every episode “The View” aired this week except for the Tuesday August 4 installment — in which Osbourne challenged presidential candidate Donald Trump on his opinions about immigrants saying,”if you kick every Latino out of this country, who is going to be cleaning your toilet?”
As a content provider to Hulu, ABC would retain the right to pull its programming. The streaming service did not immediately respond when asked about precedent of a major network pulling controversial material.
Meanwhile, Osbourne is insisting she cleans her own toilets. You know what she was trying to say but to even implicate that Latinos are doing the bulk of low-level work (outside of your Southern California bubble) does reveal a sort of backwards thinking that needs to be progressed.
Also, never forget.
