The View’s Whoopi Goldberg breaks show tradition and SNUBS excited fans in live audience | The Sun

THE VIEW’S Whoopi Goldberg has broken show tradition and snubbed excited fans in the live audience.

Tuesday’s taping of The View in New York City kicked off with the hosts filming a pre-recorded segment of The $100,000 Pyramid to promote guest Michael Strahan’s new game show on ABC, The Sun can exclusively reveal. 

Before filming for the episode started, hosts Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar and guest host Alyssa Farah Griffin, who will reportedly become a full-time cast member in September, each waved and greeted the excited crowd when they walked in. 

Whoopi, 66, came on stage with the former NFL player, as he too acknowledged the audience, an eyewitness told The Sun. 

But Whoopi ignored the claps and cheers for her, as she took her place on stage. 

Whoopi eventually did wave to the crowd when a group of fans cheered her name. 

Despite the audience snub, Whoopi warmed up to her fans throughout the taping. 

During an off-air question and answer with the audience, many praised the Sister Act actress for her impact on both pop culture and social issues, as she thanked them for their kind words.

However, she did ask for the audience member’s cell phone and took a socially-distanced selfie. 

She also said goodbye to the crowd when she finished filming and left the stage. 


The Sun previously reported Whoopi hinted she is leaving The View during an off-air question and answer with the studio audience on Tuesday’s episode.

During the Q&A with audience members, a fan asked Whoopi if she plans to come out with a clothing line, an eyewitness told The Sun. 

Whoopi responded that she is not, but she is launching a prosecco line.

The actress also mentioned how the product is made in Italy and that she plans to release it around Christmas time. 


The new business venture comes as fans have been begging for the longtime host’s firing from The View after various comments and on-air blunders, including her "racist" remarks about the Holocaust during the January 31 episode.

A petition has even circulated on, insisting that Whoopi be let go of her hosting duties for her "repulsive verbiage and actions."

It currently has over 40,000 signatures.


This week, Whoopi abruptly stopped the daytime series from heading for a commercial break.

As the ABC talk show approached 20 minutes in, it was time for the scheduled commercial break.

Yet when Sara, 44, was tasked with reading a legal announcement about Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, who has been vocal about his views on abortion, Whoopi "clapped back."

Fans were quick to note her reaction, which caused a delay for commercials.

Sara told viewers: "A legal note – Congressman Matt Gaetz has not been charged with any crimes and has denied any wrong doing."

Yet Whoopi interjected, much to the shock of viewers at home: "Yeah but you're a liar, sir."

"We will be right back," she added before the show finally played out to the delayed break.

Then earlier this month, Whoopi snapped at her longtime co-host Joy, 79.

The TV stars were in a tense conversation about President Biden bumping fists with the Saudi Crown Prince.

Whoopi then went on her own rant about the presidency at large.

When her co-star jumped in to add her own take, Whoopi cut her off, saying: "Hold on, hold on. We'll get to that when we come right back cause they just stopped me."

The actress then rolled her eyes and looked down at her comment cards, as she threw Joy shade from her seat on the panel.
