Host Whoopi Goldberg seemed both sad and excited as she announced a new cast member to ‘The View’ but seems like they’re saying goodbye to someone else along the way. Whoopi Goldberg said: “We got a new man behind the camera. Hey Paul,” and the other hosts turned around and said “hi Paul” too!
In a previous episode, Whoopi Goldberg said one of the crew members was going to leave the show. That’s when they revealed it was producer Rob Bruce Baron who would be retiring after about 40 years of working in the television business, according to The Sun. The entertainment news report quoted Whoopi Goldberg as she and Joy Behar talked about it, suggesting that Whoopi even looked like she would be tearful.
“Rob is retiring today after 40 years in television. Rob has been with The View since Day 1, 26 seasons.”
“Don’t leave!” Whoopi called out to Rob.
The View hosts and Rob shared some heartfelt appreciation for their producer’s hard work over the years
Finally, it was time for the show — and Rob’s illustrious career — to come to an end.
Every good career comes to an end at some point, but what if the show is no good? A lot of people dislike ‘The View’ and their hosts for the rambunctious things they say about politics and how divisive and angry-sounding the hosts can be.
Take one look at social media and you’ll see people are often talking about ‘The View’ in a bad way because of Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar. In fact, one Joy Behar situation was so bad that sports enthusiast Clay Travis had to say something about it. Clay Travis talked trash on Joy Behar, putting her in her place in about two seconds. It was wild to see the celebrity drama unfold.
You can watch the video of Joy Behar and read what Clay Travis wrote on your own time. The celebrity drama doesn’t end with Joy Behar though, it continues with Whoopi Goldberg too. She was facing a lot of criticism months ago for her comments that were considered possibly racist.
Social media was in an uproar after ‘The View’ co-host Whoopi Goldberg said this and it somewhat offends white people: “Peaceful protests continued nationwide after Friday’s release of police footage showing officers savagely beating Tyre Nichols in Memphis. So far, five cops have been charged with second-degree murder and kidnapping. I asked this question way too many times at this table, but you know, when will the brutality finally lead to some police reform from the ground up? Because clearly, it doesn’t matter if it’s a white policeman or a black policeman. It is the problem with the policing itself. It seems things don’t make sense to people unless it’s somebody they can feel or they can recognize. Do we need to see white people also get beat before anybody will do anything? I’m not suggesting that. So don’t write us and tell me what a racist I am. I’m just asking, is that what people have to see in order to wake up and realize this affects us all?”
Watch Whoopi Goldberg freak out on this video that leads to her criticism.
