Her plea comes after an increase in the number of deaths from the novel coronavirus. According to reports, a single day death toll is steadily approaching 4,000.
Away from her difficult family moments, Hostin was also embroiled in a saga with the executives of ABC, which resulted in her hiring a lawyer. According to reports, the network had initiated some changes to be made to the facts stated in her book, "I Am These Truths," to which she refused.
Hostin said that taking away the pages in dispute did not feel right for her as they contained her prized experiences, which she feels sentimental about.
Hostin did not hide how she felt when the network asked her to make changes to her work. During an interview, the veteran journalist said she felt like she was being asked to tone down in the discrimination she suffered, which did not feel right.
Despite all Hostin has to battle, she can rest assured that she has people rooting for her. Her "The View" co-host Meghan McCain, who leaped to her defense during her row with ABC, shared an emotional tribute for the 52-year-old where she gave insight into their friendship.
