Whoopi Goldberg was forced to seek help from viewers live on The View when she recently completely overlooked an important detail.
Whoopi Goldberg made another unfortunate mistake in an interview with The View when she interviewed singer Ne-Yo.
The 66-year-old actress blushed when she couldn’t remember the term “Nielsen ratings” while promoting Ne-Yo’s new album and had to beg the audience for help. Sun.
During a recent episode ViewWhoopi and her co-hosts turned on Ne-Yo while broadcasting from the Bahamas.
Concluding the interview, the moderator said: “Thank you for always being by our side, we love you very much.”
She then instructed viewers to pre-order his album, but encouraged them to do so “at the end of the show”.
Whoopi stumbled over her words as she added, “So we can get… nee… what’s it called?” before interrupting and asking for help from the public.
Someone called out, “Nielsen ratings.” View panel seems to be confirmed.
Laughing at her mistake, Whoopi hurriedly added, “We need ratings!”
Nielsen ratings are used to measure how many viewers tune into shows in the US.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of the show, ViewThe hosts enjoyed their time in the Bahamas together and filmed the show on location during their luxury getaway at the Baha Mar Resort.
While fans understood that the cast was there to honor Viewlandmark moment, they criticized the show, and especially Whoopi, for how they did it all and for the timing.
Whoopi disappointed fans when she stated on Monday’s episode that viewers could “relive” the group’s idyllic vacation.
“Definitely thought it was cringing a bit and getting out of control,” wrote one social media user.
They added, “I don’t think they should feel bad about sharing their stories while having fun, but trying to present it as inspiring/helpful to others hurt me the wrong way.”
Another commented: “Why do I want to see them having fun in some fabulous place where I can’t go?
“This trip in particular feels very out of touch with reality, condescending and totally out of sync with everything that’s going on in America.”
Meanwhile, last month, fans vowed to boycott the show over Whoopi’s on-air swearing.
The actor cursed while talking about parenting on a recent episode, saying, “Sometimes you have to be an ass to be a parent.”
The curse is on the air
The comedian’s language didn’t sit well with viewers at home, with one writing on Reddit, “Whoopi and Sunny [Hostin] there was too much foul language today.”
The user also urged the owners to curse, talking about tightening gun control.
“Between Whoopi used the word ‘bitch’ and Sunny referring to Republicans who ‘piss on her leg when it rains’, I had to black out,” they wrote.
“I know they’re into gun issues, but this is daytime TV, not the Howard Stern show. Some people have kids at home for the summer.”
Another tweeted: “Does Whoopi really need to swear all the time?”
Whoopi also came under fire back in February when she was suspended from View over her comments on the Holocaust.
The talk show host horrified fans when she said the Holocaust was “racially unrelated” despite the fact that six million Jews were killed by the Nazis.
She made the comments discussing the recent scandal after the Tennessee School Board voted to remove the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel Maus from the eighth grade language arts curriculum.
The board said the book was inappropriate due to profanity and depictions of female nudity.
He was expelled from the school’s curriculum after several months of increased pressure from parents in some areas over books dealing with issues of race, gender identity and sexuality.
“I’m surprised that you were embarrassed that there was some kind of nudity. I mean, it’s about the Holocaust, the murder of 6 million people, but didn’t that bother you? Whoopi said on View.
She later said, “If you’re going to do this, then let’s be honest. Because the Holocaust is not about race. No, it’s not about race.
Co-host Joy Behar responded, “Then what was it about?”
“We are talking about the inhumanity of man in relation to man. That’s the point, she replied.
Whoopi later expressed regret over her words in a Twitter apology.
“My words upset so many people that it was never my intention,” she said.
“I understand why now and for this, I am deeply, deeply grateful because the information I received was really helpful and helped me understand some different things.”
