THE VIEW fans have slammed the show for not allowing negative reactions from the crowd when announcing guest-host Alyssa Farah Griffin.
Viewers of the long-running show noticed some changes in the episodes’ introduction.
Noticeably absent from the introduction was guest-host Alyssa, who has yet to earn a permanent slot on the panel.
Instead, the 33-year-old’s appearance was quickly mentioned by moderator Whoopi before immediately jumping into the day’s discussions.
The View watchers took their opinions to Twitter, pointing out the supposed snub.
“I love how quickly they’ve been saying Alyssa’s name at the beginning, giving no chance for the crowd to boo,” one fan tweeted.
“It’s like they read our tweets and want us to know they’re on our side,” another agreed.
“Nor did one solitary person clap for her,” a third user added.

But many fans slammed the choice of the new conservative host, calling instead for favorite Ana Navarro to be named host.
On Twitter, the outrage was swift.
” I will stop watching The View if former Trumper, Alyssa Farrah Griffin, is hired,” one viewer shared. “Give the job to Ana Navarro, even if she has to stay in Florida!”
Another added: “If #TheView has integrity and wants a truly different conservative voice that is not extremist and has never sold out, that would only be @ananavarro.
“They should reconsider and hire her, or many of us will simply not watch the show anymore.”
On viewer even called the show out for dragging their feet about making the official choice.
“The View is afraid to publicly announce they hired AFG as a permanent co-host because they know viewers will RIGHTFULLY leave in droves!”
Thursday’s episode stirred backlash after Alyssa seemingly made a jealous remark toward a guest on the show.
In a virtual interview, the hosts spoke to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, where Alyssa mentioned her roots in the presidential residence.
At one point in the conversation, Alyssa veered away from the political discussion to comment on the guest’s “fabulous” office space.
“… And Karine, I just have to say congratulations on breaking multiple glass ceilings, and I hope as it gets cold in D.C., you use the fireplace in your office because it’s fabulous,” she said with a laugh.
Before taking over Megan’s seat on The View, Alyssa was the White House Director of Strategic Communications and the Assistant to former President Donald Trump during his 2020 administration.
Twitter erupted with posts from viewers who felt Alyssa’s comment showed her envy toward her guest’s position in the White House.
“Alyssa’s jealously just came through… you can tell she wishes she could’ve had Karine’s position for Trump…” one tweeted, with many others posting similar reactions to her remark.
“Alyssa always references the White House,” another added.
