The hosts of “The View” were forced to do some damage-control on Friday after two sponsors — Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best — dropped their ads from the show following jokes that hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins made about the nursing profession.

As the opening credits for the show rolled, an announcer revealed Friday’s show would include “real-life nurses are giving us a look at the life-saving role they play every day.”
