Whoopi Goldberg could get replaced by Bachelorette alum Rachel Lindsay. This comes amid the ever-growing backlash against the moderator. Fans have called for Whoopi’s firing since last month. Now, some say she will get replaced by the ABC television personality. Keep on reading to learn more.
Rachel Lindsay returns to The View
This week, Bachelor Nation alum Rachel Lindsay made her return to The View. She was a co-host during Thursday’s live broadcast while Whoopi Goldberg was absent. Joy Behar sat in Whoopi’s seat and took on the role of moderator. She announced that Rachel would join them on Friday’s show as well.
The studio audience politely clapped. Joy closed out the show as they gave their monologue. Rachel’s return to the daytime talk show has fans wondering if she will replace Whoopi Goldberg. It’s possible that the ABC talent is trying out the moderator role. This could be the show’s way of finding out how Rachel fits in with the panel.
Others think she could be replacing Sunny Hostin, who has also been absent from the talk show. One fan of The View created an online poll on Twitter. They asked fans if they think Rachel Lindsay is “auditioning” for Whoopi Goldberg’s role.
“Please tell me @Sunny’s absence is temporary & Rachel Lindsay is NOT auditioning for her seat at the table!” one fan wrote.
“Having Rachel Lindsay on The View could be the only reason I tune in for more than 3 seconds,” a second fan added.
Whoopi Goldberg continues to get backlash
Whoopi Goldberg returned to The View with the panel earlier this month. She came on the heels of a recent backlash. The actress promoted her new film Till in an interview with The Times UK. She brought up the comments she made about the Holocaust and the Jewish community on the daytime talk show last year.
Those comments led to Whoopi’s two-week suspension in February 2022. This time, fans are calling for her firing since she doubled down on those comments. She mentioned that Jewish people were split on being a race or a religion. She also explained the comments she made at the time of the incident.
Meanwhile, Whoopi Goldberg is counting her lucky stars. She continues to get movie roles despite her controversial comments. She also promoted her Sugar Plum Ballerinas book series on Instagram. Whoopi is grateful to have new opportunities despite the backlash against her.
