The idiotic liberal talkshow The View has been on it’s last leg for quite some time now, but they may have finally just done themselves in.

It all started on the November 19 episode of the show, when hosts Joy Behar, Michelle Collins, Paula Faris, Candace Campbell Bure and Whoopi Goldberg were discussing eating habits. According to Daily Mail, this conversation devolved into poking fun at the serious condition of eating disorders, with the hosts trying to figure out if anorexia or bulimia would be “better” to have.

Outraged about the segment, 20-year-old Rebecca Hoffman of Long Island wrote the women an open letter which was published by The Mighty, and it has quickly gone viral.

“Dear Joy, Michelle, Candace, Paula and Whoopi,” Rebecca, a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, began her letter. “I love The View. If you walk into my house at 11, chances are my mom and grandma are watching ABC. In a world where women’s voices are stymied and silenced, it’s wonderful to see intelligent women share their opinions on important topics.”

“That’s why hearing your jokes about anorexia and bulimia made me so upset,” she added. You can read Rebecca’s full letter here.

Though the hosts apologized for making light of eating disorders, many say it was too little, too late. This could be the straw that broke the camel’s back, and could mark the end of The View forever!
