Whoopi Goldberg has again put herself in the headlines for shouting at her co-hosts on the daytime talk show The View abruptly adding a commercial break while the heated argument was going on. She was recently in limelight because of making tone-deaf remarks about the holocaust on the talk show, The View. As a result of her comments, she was suspended from the show two weeks following the incident.
The Color Purple actor is known for making controversial statements on several occasions, and her recent action has again surfaced on the Internet. After celebrating the 25th anniversary, The View has returned from the holidays this week with new guest hosts–Alyssa Farah Griffin, Ana Navarro, and Sunny Hostin.
Whoopi Goldberg Shouted The Show To Commercial Break
The tense conversation that was ended by Goldberg happened between the co-hosts where they talked about a civil conversation about politics. They discussed the Roe V Wade case, as The American Supreme Court had overturned a constitutional right granted in 1973, that had legalized abortion across the country. To this, former White House Communications Director, Griffin shared, “I want to make sure that as we’re having these fundamental American conversations about what we want our country to be and who we should be, that we just make sure we’re keeping the temperature down [and] it doesn’t turn into harassment or intimidation.”
She further talked about Republican politicians, “Years ago, their focus was on budgets, securing the border, bringing down the deficit. It was not this vast, right-,” when Whoopi Goldberg interrupted. This was followed by Navarro’s comment that ticked off the former White House Communications Director who shared, “You criticize Paul Ryan all the time for his role at FOX.” The guest hosts got involved in a heated argument and to stop, Goldberg yelled at the guest hosts, “Excuse me, ladies! We are going to take a break right now.”

Great point by everyone today on @TheView but like @WhoopiGoldberg said, what do you want @POTUS to do. Why doesn't anyone go #congress or #SCOTUS and yell. Yeah it's easy to fuss at the one person actually trying to do SOMETHING!!!!
