The 66-year-old host caused quite a stir after she said "a**" in the Tuesday, June 14 episode of the talk show while talking about parenting. "Sometimes you have to be an a** to be a parent," she could be heard saying in the clip of the show that went viral.
Fans are now calling for a casting rearrangement on the talk show upon learning about Whoopi's wild behavior. "Someone needs to start pushing back on Whoopi. I have a feeling someone will not let her interject one day which will cause Whoopi to go full-on nuts honestly. She has gotten exponentially worse this season so I hope next time contract negotiations are up it's time to go, or work less days," one critic opined.
"I have no idea what ABC thinks is happening here. They take several women, with no real credibility and let them mouth off day after day and they're surprised that one day someone says something stupid?" another said. A third chimed in, "Completely agree about Whoopi. She shuts down any opinion she doesn't agree with."
A separate person added, "Between Whoopi using the word 'b***hin' and [Sunny Hostin] referring to Republicans 'p**sing on her leg when it's raining' I had to turn off." The said person continued, "I know they're passionate about gun issues but this is daytime TV, not the Howard Stern show. Some people have kids home for the summer."
This wasn't the first time Whoopi landed in hot water over her comments on TV. In February, the "Sister Act" star was suspended from "The View" after she said in the January 31 episode of the show that "the Holocaust isn't about race... It's about man's inhumanity to man. That's what it's about."
At the time, ABC News president Kim Godwin said in a statement, "Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments." Kim continued, "While Whoopi has apologized, I've asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments. The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities."
