Whoopi Goldberg apologized for saying “vibrator” on “The View” on Monday. Watch below.

Goldberg and her co-hosts are allowed to say a lot of things on the ABC talk show, but apparently “vibrator” isn’t one of them. That initially led the moderator to delicately dance around the word during a live interview with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. On the new season of “Grace and Frankie,” the characters get into the sex toy business.

So, during the talk show chat, Goldberg introduced the topic by noting, “It’s interesting that we can’t actually say what I’m about to say.” She then said, “The ladies are starting an interesting new business. You want to say what it is?”

That led Fonda to explain, “Well, at the end of season two, a good friend of ours gives us both gifts, and my gift is something that vibrates. Grace never used one before and ends up with carpal tunnel syndrome.” It was abundantly clear to what the actress was referring, prompting many laughs.

Then Goldberg apparently decided to just go ahead and use the word anyway. “The greatest thing about this is we used to get vibrators as gifts from people all the time,” she shared. It was then noted Goldberg said the seemingly banned word, leading her to say, “I’m going to say it really fast, because now that we’re not entertainment, we’re not allowed to talk about this.”

Indeed, after the final commercial break, as the show was ending, Goldberg said straight into the camera, “Sorry about the ‘v’ word, and have a great day. Take a little time to enjoy the view.” More laughter ensured over the apology, though it was unclear if Goldberg was forced to give it.

For what it’s worth, Savannah Guthrie also struggled with the topic on the “Today” show when she interviewed Fonda and Tomlin last week, saying she wanted a “PG-way” to say “vibrator” on a morning show. An unfazed Fonda said it straight out anyway, more than once, and even went on to reference “vaginal lubrication.” Check out both videos below.
