Whoopi Goldberg faces backlash from fans after a heated interaction with her co-host Sunny Hostin on The View.
Whoopi Goldberg, veteran co-host of The View, has come under fire from fans after a heated interaction with her colleague, Sunny Hostin. The 67-year-old actress was accused of acting “rude” towards Hostin during a “Hot Topics” segment of the daytime talk show.
A situation arose when Whoopi Goldberg faced difficulties reading her note card that carried the day’s topic – a research study from the University of Windsor. Hostin attempted to correct what she saw as a misinterpretation by Goldberg, which ignited a back-and-forth exchange between the two seasoned television personalities.
The View: Backlash From Fans
Viewers at home found fault with Whoopi Goldberg’s handling of the situation, arguing that Sunny Hostin was merely trying to ensure the accuracy of the information shared. Social media was soon awash with comments slamming Goldberg for her perceived rudeness and unwillingness to accept Hostin’s correction.
Fans expressed their discontent on various platforms, with one Twitter user asserting: “Whoopi is so unnecessarily rude to [Sunny].” Similar sentiments were echoed by others, who criticized Goldberg’s apparent confrontational demeanor, labeling it as “freaking rude” and “ridiculous.”
This incident isn’t the first time in recent weeks that the Oscar-winning actress has been the subject of fan ire. Whoopi Goldberg was earlier called out for seeming disinterested during a discussion of a so-called “fluff” topic about the evolving dynamics within a marriage.
Viewers perceived a lack of engagement from Goldberg as her co-hosts energetically debated the issue. Whoopi’s nonchalant attitude did not go unnoticed, as fans took to Twitter to discuss her behavior. The expressionless posture and her silence led to more criticism from the viewers.
