In a sh ocking turn of events, it seems that Twitter owner Elon Musk has dealt a crushing blow to ABC’s long-running talk show, “The View.”
According to recent ratings, the once-popular program has plummeted to become the network’s lowest-rated program, and many are blaming Musk for the show’s decline.
So what happened? Well, it all started when Musk, a notorious provocateur on social media, decided to target “The View” with a series of pointed tweets.
Apparently, Musk took issue with some of the show’s comments about him and his business ventures, and he wasn’t about to let it slide.
In one tweet, Musk wrote, “I used to think ‘The View’ was a decent show, but now I see it for what it is: a bunch of catty, jealous women talking nonsense.” Needless to say, this did not go over well with the show’s hosts, who fired back with their own retorts.
But Musk wasn’t done yet. He continued to tweet about the show, calling it “irrelevant” and “out of touch” with the times. And apparently, his followers agreed, because soon enough, the show’s ratings began to dip.
At first, the producers of “The View” tried to ignore Musk’s taunts, hoping that the controversy would blow over. But as the weeks went on, it became clear that the damage had been done. Viewership continued to decline, and the show’s advertisers started to pull out.
Now, “The View” finds itself in a precarious position, with many wondering if it will be able to recover from this latest blow. Some are even calling for the show to be cancelled, citing its increasingly toxic and divisive content.
Of course, not everyone is ready to blame Musk for the show’s decline. Some argue that “The View” was already on shaky ground before Musk ever started tweeting about it, and that the show’s hosts have themselves to blame for their plummeting ratings.
Regardless of who’s at fault, it’s clear that “The View” is no longer the powerhouse it once was. And as for Elon Musk, he seems to be reveling in his role as the show’s nemesis, continuing to lob insults and taunts at the hosts on social media.
It remains to be seen what the future holds for “The View,” but one thing is certain: it’s no longer the talk of the town.
