It bothers me that Perez apologized for being offended by such an offensive comment. It bothers me even more that she shifted the issue from Osbourne's problematic comment to her sensitivity. Dear Rosie, you were not being too sensitive. Please stop apologizing.
The View is trading intelligence for stupid. With Season 18 of The View coming to a close this week on ABC, the once ground breaking show continues its slow slide into irrelevance with news of its recent cast changes.
You really believed that you were being much more open-minded, much more attuned to the Latino community than Trump could ever be. But see, that's the thing with microaggresions; you think you're being helpful, but in reality, you're not. At. All.
While it can be argued that Osborne's comments did not come with cruel intentions, the example she used, quite frankly, was cruel.
Instead of leading from behind, hire a robust and exciting panel that re-engages the program's core 25-54 demographic which is being lost to its competition, and bring an aging platform into the 21st century by way of social media. Here's who should get the call.

On Fox News, the most unpatriotic thing you can do, aside from supporting the President of the United States, is to criticize a war movie. Now actor Seth Rogen is being heavily criticized for a tweet he posted.
Sam Shepard and Stephen Rea have collaborated on projects for 40 years, ever since Shepard directed Rea in a Royal Court production of Shepard's Geography of a Horse Dreamer.
Despite these minor wrinkles, The View's makeover was a success. The first week of Season 18 marked a new beginning for a show that had lost its way the last few years.
While some prioritize their advocacy for economic conditions such as pay equity and job opportunity, others focus on birth control and abortion rights; nonetheless, branding of feminism with intent to harm those with opposing political ideology damages the overall cause of social equality of the sexes.
I even spotted comedienne Rosie in the front row of Barbara Walter's final appearance on The View on May 16, 2014 after Barbara's 800 episodes and 50 years in television.
