WATCH: Did Whoopi Goldberg Really Fart On The View?
Whoopi Goldberg really let it rip on “The View” on Wednesday, but Hot Topics may not be to blame. During the chatfest’s daily segment, a loud whoosh erupted, and Goldberg appeared to have farted. Check out the video below!
The surprising noise interrupted guest co-host Ashanti as she was talking about flu shots, and set off laughing fits from the panel and audience alike. Goldberg immediately stood up and walked away saying she needed a minute, while Rosie O’Donnell walked over to fan the air.
“I feel so much better now,” quipped Goldberg. She and O’Donnell went on to amusingly blame the set’s breakfast burritos, while Ashanti jokingly said the flu shot was responsible. But was it really a fart?
In the video below, the supposed gas noise erupts at the same exact moment the show’s new Hot Topics graphic is branded on the screen with a whooshing sound. It seems like Goldberg may have just been doing what comediennes do best — taking an unexpected moment (the random sound) and turning it into a comedy bit (by pretending it was a fart). Of course, it’s also possible the star really did toot, and it was indeed picked up by her mic or its true noise was masked by the weird production gimmick. Watch below, and tell us what you think!
