In a stunning announcement, an ABC executive has declared that the popular talk show.
The View, will be canceled unless Whoopi Goldberg is removed from the show.
According to sources close to the executive, Whoopi’s recent comments on the show have been deemed too controversial and divisive for the network’s taste.
“Whoopi has just gone too far this time,” said the anonymous executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
“Her comments on politics and social issues have become too polarizing, and we can’t afford to alienate our viewers any further. It’s either her or the show, and we’ve decided that the show is more important than any one individual.”
The announcement has sparked outrage among fans of The View, many of whom see Whoopi as a vital part of the show’s success.
Social media has been flooded with messages of support for the veteran actress and talk show host, with many calling for a boycott of ABC and its advertisers.
“This is ridiculous,” said one fan on Twitter. “Whoopi is the heart and soul of The View. Without her, the show would be nothing. ABC needs to rethink this decision before it’s too late.”
Others have taken a more satirical approach to the news, with some suggesting that ABC should just cancel the show and spare everyone the drama.
“Let’s face it, The View hasn’t been relevant since Barbara Walters left,” said one commenter. “Maybe it’s time to put this show out of its misery and move on to something more interesting.”
Regardless of what happens next, it’s clear that this announcement has stirred up a lot of emotions among fans of The View. Whether Whoopi stays or goes, one thing is for sure: the future of the show is more uncertain than ever before.
