Candace Cameron-Bure Walks Off ‘The View’ Mid-Show Due To Illness
Candace Cameron-Bure walked off Tuesday’s “The View” during a commercial break because she wasn’t feeling well, revealing later on Twitter that she’s suffering from the flu. Some speculated online that her unexpected exit was a result of remarks made earlier with which she didn’t agree, but there’s no truth to that.
As Gossip Cop reported, the co-hosts of “The View” discussed the boycotting of the Oscars, for which no black actors have been nominated. At one point during the segment, Whoopi Goldberg perceived that Cameron-Bure was disinterested in the topic, and told her, “Well, you know what, I talk about God, you gotta talk about these damn movies.”
When the show returned from a commercial break, Cameron-Bure was no longer in her seat, leading many people on Twitter to assumed she took offense to Goldberg’s comment and stormed off. But Goldberg insisted on the show that her co-host “hasn’t been feeling well for the past couple hours.” She added, “She didn’t want you to think she just walked off and wasn’t having it. She just really wasn’t feeling well.”
In fact, during the segment in which the Oscars were discussed prior to Cameron-Bure’s departure, Goldberg even offered her a glass of orange juice. Cameron-Bure later clarified on Twitter, “I left the show today b/c I didnt feel well, not because of the discussion. Saw the Doctor- low blood sugar & tested positive for flu.”
