Anti-Vaxxer and Flat-Earther Fired from The View

It was announced last night that Jenny McCarthy, who thinks vaccines cause autism, and Sherri Shepherd, who once questioned the shape of the Earth, were fired from The View:

“It’s been seven wonderful years on ‘The View’ and after careful consideration it is time for me to move on,” Shepherd said in a statement. “I am extremely grateful to Barbara Walters and (exec producer) Bill Geddie for giving me the opportunity. I look forward to the business opportunities that lay ahead for me and I am incredibly grateful to my ‘View’ family and my fans for supporting me on this journey.”

Shepherd and McCarthy are both expected to finish out the show’s current season, which wraps the first week of August. Friday’s edition of the show is a pre-taped seg. It will be on hiatus next week, which encompasses the July 4 holiday, and return to live broadcasts on July 7.

It’s not entirely clear why they were fired… but does it really matter? Good riddance. The smaller a platform both of them have, the better off we all are.
