Whoopi Goldberg, host of THE View, has been criticized for exhibiting “rude” behavior during a live episode. Viewers took issue with her actions and expressed their discontent as the show went to commercial.

On Tuesday’s show, Whoopi and the View panel discussed former President Donald Trump running for office again in 2024.

Some Republicans are backing him up while others are not.

They discussed whether the GOP will back him or dump him.

The conversation went on for nearly seven minutes when Sunny Hostin said she had a legal note to read.

“Trump blasted the new grand jury, calling it a continuation of the greatest witch hunt of all time,” she said.

“He has also denied having an affair with Stormy Daniels.”

The camera then panned to Whoopi, who gave it a confused look.

As Sunny and Joy Behar discussed him saying he has “never had an affair,” Whoopi remained silent and just looked around the studio into the audience.

She kept the same confused look on her face and then sighed.

The hosts continued talking as Whoopi said: “We’ll be right back,” and the show cut to commercial.


View fans thought Whoopi’s behavior was “rude” and that she looked “over it,” as she cut to commercial.

“Wait a minute. The opening segment left Whoopi speechless. The way she cut to commercial,” one Twitter user said, along with laughing emojis.

“Whoopi’s reaction and then going to commercial! Of COURSE! #theview,” said another.

A third added: “This is one of those days where Whoopi comes out at 11:00AM; hears some of the commentary and is completely over it by 11:10AM. it’s hilarious to watch. #TheView.”

“Whoopi is so over it #TheView,” laughed one fan.

“Why was Whoopi so rude during that conversation? #TheView,” asked another.


This isn’t the first time fans thought Whoopi showed “rude behavior.”

Back in September, they slammed the host for being disrespectful as she pretended to fall asleep.

Whoopi and the panel got into the debate of whether or not an online relationship is an actual relationship.

They discussed Adam Levine‘s recent cheating scandal and what they think went down.

The comedian was initially stunned when she found out he reportedly wanted to name his baby after his mistress.

But then she got tired of discussing it and asked: “Why do we have to participate? Why is The View participating? That’s what I want to know.”

She then pretended to fall asleep as co-hosts Sara Haines, Joy, Sunny, and Alyssa Farah Griffin continued to talk about the Maroon 5 frontman’s scandal.

She closed her eyes and put her head down.

At one point, the camera zoomed in on her and she was slumped over, pretending to almost fall out of her chair from boredom.

Whoopi eventually “woke up” and took the show to a commercial break.

Even though the studio audience laughed at her gimmick, fans online did not think it was funny.

The View fans on Twitter were not happy with Whoopi’s behavior and took to the platform to express their disgust.

“Whoopi ‘sleeping’ during the Adam Levine segment… so rude & disrespectful, taking the audience’s attention away the woman who are doing their JOB talking about the topic. #TheView,” wrote one fan.

A second said: “Why exactly does Whoopi get paid millions of dollars? She brings nothing to the show & her pretending to sleep while the other hosts speak, is disrespectful & rude. #TheView.”

“If Whoopi doesn’t want to talk about something, don’t talk then, don’t just derail the segment. #TheView,” suggested another.

One angry fan said: “Whoopi, I understand you all get ‘Hot Topics’ you don’t wanna discuss but the job is to give your opinion and Adam Levine is a Hot Topic right now. You would not want a host to complain the whole segment about a topic you chose so you should give them the same respect. #TheView.”
