The View’s Whoopi Goldberg Speaks Out Against Farting Accusations After Latest Mystery Noise Is Identified
There are many things that the audience expects The view, at this point. You will also get celebrity guest stars in each episode honest (and sometimes critical) thoughts about politics, pop culture and more. Aside from these elements, fans are probably also used to mysterious noises that occasionally pop up during the broadcast. It is difficult to predict when such a noise will occur – and even more difficult to determine the cause. Well, for the past week, co-host Whoopi Goldberg has faced allegations of farting, and when this latest audio riddle was solved, the star spoke up.
It may sound humorous to the uninitiated, but there are many memorable moments from daytime television’s illustrious history that involve unusual noise. One of them just happened to be involved Whoopi Goldberg farts during an interview with Claire Danes. Because of this, when a similar-sounding noise was heard in a recent episode, many quickly looked their way. However, not everything is as it seems.
In Tuesday’s episode The viewanother sound penetrated the set and after the comedy icon questioned it, co-host Sara Haines explained (via EW) that the sound came from her glass and proved this by mimicking the sound. Haines also pointed out that it “happens every time I shoot it”. With that, Joy Behar chimed in, asking if everyone could finally “quit this rumor” now that the audience knows the source. The sister act 3 Star agreed:
So there you have it folks. Neither of the ladies cut the cheese (this time). To be honest, this is a pretty silly thing for the audience to obsess over, especially when such serious issues are being discussed. But in all honesty, those who watch at home enjoy it when someone lets you go while they’re on the air. (Many still speak of that time Wendy Williams belched and farted at the same time on her talk show.)
Whoopi Goldberg — as far as we know — has never had gas out of both ends while taping a show. Though the comedian has been dealing with more pressing on-air issues of late. She was called last week for using an ethnic slur The view and subsequently took to social media to apologize and clarify her mind. This situation came months later the recent conners guest star caused controversy Talking about race and the Holocaust. Needless to say, some random moments of flatulence are relatively small potatoes compared to these things.
If the story is any indication, it’s safe to assume viewers will continue to keep their ears alert for possible farts and other noise moving in the future. The Oscar winner and her colleagues at the table will probably lend a hand. If any of them actually tear one up, hopefully they’ll admit it. Because folks, it’s not cool to seriously step on the gas and not claim it.
The view airs weekdays at 11 p.m. ET on ABC as part of the TV program 2023. You can also stream the latest episodes with a Hulu subscription.
