THE drama thickens as star comedian cancels her appearance on The View after finding out a controversial guest was hosting.
Wanda Sykes was scheduled to appear on The View this past Friday, but reportedly called it off after finding out unpleasant news.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, the former communications director of ex-president Donald Trump, has been recently co-hosting for The View.
There are even rumors of Alyssa becoming a permanent conservative co-host on The View, replacing ex-panelist Meghan McCain.
According to the Daily Beast, when Wanda's publicist was made aware that Alyssa was going to be co-hosting Friday's episode, Wanda wanted out.
A View insider told the Daily Beast, “She didn’t want to be part of helping a Trumper launder her reputation."

The Sun reached out to The View and a Wanda Sykes spokesperson, but neither got back with a comment by the time of publication.
Wanda has been an outspoken critic of former president Trump.
In an interview with NPR, promoting Wanda's Netflix special Not Normal, she talked about how hard it was to make fun of Trump, but for all the wrong reasons.
Wanda said: "You would think, 'Oh boy, there's so much to make fun of,' but really I can't write anything funnier or more ridiculous than what Trump actually says."
