News, Talk Shows

Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar cried “racism” on the morning talk show. Fans clapped back on social media after the broadcast. On Tuesday, September 6, The View returned after its summer hiatus. In the promo video, the co-hosts warned fans that they will share new views and will have a new attitude.

Joy and Whoopi followed through with that promise. They shared an opinion that didn’t bode well with everyone. On the latest broadcast, the women sounded off on those who don’t like the Amazon series Lord of the Rings: Ring of Power and HBO’s new Game of Thrones spinoff series House of the Dragon. They claimed the critics are “racist.”

Whoopi Goldberg & Joy Behar share bold statements

Whoopi Goldberg was the first to share her opinion on the latest broadcast of The View. She called out the critics who have a problem with seeing Black characters in both hit shows. Whoopi reiterated that both of the fantasy series “are not real” and “there are no dragons, there are no hobbits.” According to the Oscar winner, both of the fantasy shows are fake and hobbits and mermaids don’t exist.

“Are you telling me black people can’t be fake people too?” Whoopi Goldberg argued. “I don’t know if there’s like, a hobbit club, I don’t know if there are gonna be protests. But people: What is wrong with y’all?”

Fellow The View co-host Sunny Hostin said she was “fascinated” by the series. She was more focused on the “fire-breathing dragons” rather than the characters themselves. Sunny said there should be more critical about the characters with “white hair” and “violet eyes.” She thinks the outcry over the “rich Black people” is ridiculous. Newbie Alyssa Farah Griffin said the critics should “get a hobby.”

“It’s just racist. Call it what it is,” Joy Behar added.

Whoopi Goldberg feels that viewers should be against the live-action version of Disney’s The Little Mermaid since it has a Black lead. When it comes to fantasy shows like Rings of Power or House of the Dragon, she feels they shift their focus to the dialogue or acting instead.

The View fans clap back at the “racist” accusations

The View fans clapped back at Whoopi Goldberg and Joy’s bold statements. Some agreed with them, while others shared their own thoughts. Some of them took to The View’s tweet to share their opinions, and as you can see, they’re mixed:

  • “Alyssa — MAGA republicans aren’t semi-fascists- she is doing exactly what I thought. SPREADING MAGA PROPAGANDA- fire her!!!”
  • “The critics are ridiculous to focus on the casting.”
  • I can’t believe there are people complaining about black actors being cast in the new Lord Of The Rings movie. The characters are fictional… fantasy. They could be ANY color. Whoopi Goldberg is right.
  • “Habla Mismo, Whoopi!” which translates to, “Speak for yourself, Whoopi!”
  • “I love Whoopi!!! She sounded like Sister Mary Clarence in the beginning there.”
  • “Change the channel.”

  1. Whoopi is the biggest racist on TV today, Joy Behar is just a stupid bag of hair. It is not because the actors are black, it is because it is not how the story was written. Also the actors who were hired are subpar or untalented hacks. The writers (so called) have evidently never read or have no comprehension of Tolkiens works,that is not racist it is just Tolkien fans are smarter than the producers and the woke directors.

  2. to cry racist over every situation that doesn’t favor their opinions or views is nothing but a tool of weak minded people no matter the race or sex.these people’s minds revoles around victimhood that can’t make it in life no other way.

  3. Whoopi crying racist is literally like the pot calling the kettle black. She has made no secret of her prejudice on many occasions. She may have been a very talented comedian in her early years but her race related statements and opinions in recent years are not a joke.
