An ugly fight erupted between Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin. The two continued fighting behind the scenes and Sara Haines jumped in. Things got heated between the trio. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Whoopi is back to her old ways once again.
Sunny argued with both the actress and Sara on the Thursday, September 8 episode of “Hot Topics.” There’s no secret that things get tense during the segment. However, this topic had the ladies fighting behind the scenes. Read on to learn what happened and to see what caused the fight in the first place.
The View: Fight escalated behind the scenes
When the cameras turned off, the fight got worse. Whoopi Goldberg argued with both Sara Haines and Sunny Hostin. The commercial break only made things worse. Sunny continued to argue with her co-hosts about the two topics they covered. One segment was about Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s GQ interview. She shared that she would love to see a woman of color become president.
However, she doesn’t feel that the U.S. is there yet. Alexandria shared her experience with being a woman of color in politics. She’s gotten her fair share of hate for sharing her opinion.
“I want her to start remembering that what we do need her to do, is they all need to get together, all these women, every one of them, need to get together and say, ‘How do we move this forward?'” Whoopi Goldberg explained.
Her co-host Sunny called her out for her “criticism of AOC for a long time.” Whoopi’s problem with Alexandria is that she rarely shows praise for the women in the past. The Oscar winner explained that “she doesn’t recognize or acknowledge” those women.
Sunny interrupted her: “I’ve spoken with her personally and she always…”
Whoopi Goldberg fired back: “I’ve spoken with her too!”
Sunny defended AOC’s support for “those who have come before” her. She argued that most of the criticism has to do with her age. Things got heated before the show went to commercial break. An insider told The Sun that they continued to fight behind the scenes.

Before the break, Whoopi Goldberg argued that there needs to be more respect for the women who came before her. Sunny started arguing with both Whoopi and Sara. At one point, she slammed her fist on the table in frustration.
“When the women went to commercial break, Sunny continued to fight with Whoopi,” the alleged eyewitness told The Sun. “At one point, Sunny made a fist and was slamming it on the table. Both of the women made angry gestures with their hands during the heated exchange.”
They also addressed Olivia Wilde’s controversies surrounding her new film, Don’t Worry Darling. Sara said she read the interview and had questions about Olivia casting Harry Styles over Shia LaBeouf due to the abuse allegations. Sunny argued that she was only protecting women. Whoopi Goldberg joked with co-host Joy Behar before bringing the show to another commercial break.
Once again, things got worse behind the scenes. The insider said that Sara pointed her finger at Sunny while talking to her. Sunny allegedly yelled, “She’s a liar” to Sara about Olivia. Things were definitely tense that day.
