Whoopi Goldberg slammed for ‘gross and unprofessional’ behavior on The View

Was Whoopi Goldberg finishing a meal on The View last Thursday?

Some viewers seem to think so, as the panelist appeared to have something in her mouth when she opened up the hot topic panel about Jason Aldean’s song Try That in a Small Town.

As she read her notecards, she paused a few times to seemingly chew and swallow some food.

She wasn’t seen putting food in her mouth on camera, but it definitely looked like she had been eating right before the show started.

This didn’t go over well with fans, with many saying they found it “gross”, “unprofessional”, and “unnecessary”.

Some viewers took to Twitter to air out their feelings on the matter.

The View fans call out Whoopi Goldberg for seemingly eating on air

“@TheView can someone please feed Whoopi Goldberg BEFORE the show, how many times she goes on air with food in mouth smh,” one user wrote, indicating that this is far from the first time Whoopi has been seen chewing on air.

Another user quipped, “The opening greeting is Eat-talking?! #TheView We’re so rude to interrupt her brunch #Hottopics.”

“Umm Whoopi, could you not put something in your mouth before taking the stage?” Another user asked, while someone replied: “Chile I peeped that too! It’s gross & unprofessional!!! She struggled to read the damn card!!!!”

The general consensus is that no one wanted to watch Whoopi eat her food on air, and this isn’t the only thing she’s come under fire for recently.

Whoopi Goldberg heavily critiqued by The View fans and critics

It seems that Whoopi can’t catch a break no matter what she does on The View as someone always has something to say about her actions.

As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Whoopi came under fire not too long ago for being a bit rude to Sunny Hostin on air.

Whoopi had written some information incorrectly on her notecard and when Sunny clarified, Whoopi got short with her and gave a strong side eye to the cameras.

Plus, people didn’t love the way Whoopi reacted when Joy Behar’s phone rang during filming, with some people even calling for Whoopi to retire.

Whoopi has also been a little heated with producers lately, but they don’t seem to be on bad terms with the actress, so it seems everything will patch over just fine on that front.

We can’t promise that Whoopi will never eat again on camera, but hopefully, The View panelist catches a break from the criticism before long.

The View airs weekdays at 11/10c on ABC.

I don’t watch The View because of Whoopi & Joy. Both see things their way and will not consider another one. They are ridiculous in their thoughts sometimes, but won’t even consider another point of view. They are rude, condescending and poor people to have on a show like this. It’s their way, or the highway!!!

Whoopi is disgusting. She is rude, intrusive, and overbearing. She also has not proven to be the most truthful person and makes incredibly obnoxious statements on air and very inconsiderate of the rest of the panel and even some of the guests. She’s a loud mouth bully that needs to get gone.

Don’t you people have anything better to do than be critical of someone else. Give her a break. We all have faults and it is not for us to judge.

[email protected] I think Whoopi is awesome people should mind their own business and leave that lady alone she’s been there a long time I think they just want someone else up in front on the panel I think it’s because she’s black they’re picking on her that is just wrong people don’t have anything else to do these days talk about all the crap that’s going on in this would be as a very strong woman leave her be

My Goodness….if Whoopi’s Eating on air is the best the people can complain about, then what does that say about the times that we are living in….scraping and scratching to consistently find the negative…. Always. When the crowd is with you it’s “GAME ON” but when they ARE NOT with you….then any use of wording that can be said or anything that can be done to just strip you of any piece of dignity and strength you have, (like a predator chewing on it’s prey piece by piece) is what you can expect from some of this world, that we are living in today. You just have to take a breath and just keep pushing.

Whoopi doesn’t like anyone but Whoopi. She’s arrogant and self centered. I have never and will never like her views on life no matter what. I’m sorry but she is one of the most disgusting people I know. I hope at someday she will learn to keep her out of shit

I personally think it’s time to replace Whoopi has been for a while.now. She treats the rest of the panel like they are stupid and I just don’t think it’s right. She needs to go she has no manners about herself and what happen to her leaving America if Trump become President which he did but she never left like so many others claim they would. Guess they were all just running off at the mouth hoping people wouldn’t vote for him if they said they were leaving. I was hoping she would. Whoopi is a good, funny actress but she is not a talk show person so please get rid of her. I stopped watching like others did because of her.

Antwan Diggs here again another tactic they use is to get more people involved so it can be look at as to many different law enforcement government news and others people involved however they also has a team now as I’m messaging they have people over the net phone company to see who gets this so if you get this pass it on immediately because they Will send signal thru and send the memory of the moment to the further from mind how ever thought come back with reminding let’s get this out to every military in the world to come together no violence with the our people and stand up together with peace to end war on each other because it’s our government leader global some not all lets get this out there it some trillions companies and some government
