Nicolle Wallace Axed From 'The View'
On the same day Nicolle Wallace was announced to exit "The View," the token conservative challenged her co-hosts after the Kelly Osbourne debacle. ABC

Nicolle Wallace will be exiting "The View" at the end of this season following her decline as contributing co-host next season. “Our friend Nicolle Wallace is going to leave the show at the conclusion of the season,” executive Bill Wolff said in a statement published by Variety. “Having worked with her for most of the last year, you know the warmth, smarts, and professionalism she has brought to the job every day. She will always be a friend of our show, and I know you join me in wishing her only the best.” The token conservative was not on the panel yesterday and her seat was filled by Kelly Osbourne who caused controversy after saying the following: "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?"

After those insensitive comments, social media exploded attacking the former "Fashion Police" co-host. Although the co-hosts around the table tried to salvage the situation, it was too little, too late, as her deemed racist remarks quickly became viral. Rosie Perez even apologized to the purple-haired personality because she cut her off as she was trying to form her idea in her head when she put her foot in her mouth. "I want to apologize to this young woman once again for being overly sensitive. Kelly Osbourne is on our side and I was sensitive. My disdain should go to only Donald Trump, so I'm sorry, darling," Perez said at the end of the show. On Twitter Rosie wrote: "My apologies @KellyOsbourne, I took your point wrong-#Trump #Latinos. My bad. You're heart is so pure & righteous. I adore you. @TheView."

A day after the offensive comments were made, Nicolle Wallace weighed in on the situation and criticized her fellow co-hosts for being too easy on her. "What struck me was that you guys know her heart, and it was so instant that you were able to forgive her. It made me wonder if we gave that kind of benefit of the doubt to people that we are ideologically opposed to, what a game changer that would be," she said. "I mean, if Ted Cruz said that, or Mike Huckabees aid that, I can picture all of you looking in the camera saying, 'I'm going to do something in my toilet to you.'" Wallace then asked the panel to take Kelly and Donald Trump out of the conversation and imagine a politician they would disagree with: "I've been here for 10 months, and every time someone says something, every time they step in doodie and it's in our rundown, we all take turns beating the piñata."

Kelly Osbourne has since then apologized in a passive aggressive manner, with Giuliana Rancic also weighing in on the situation following a similar situation earlier in the year.
