In a stunning move, ABC’s daytime talk show
has fired long-time hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar in an effort to avoid being canceled.
The decision came after a recent episode of the show sparked outrage on social media, with viewers calling for the show to be taken off the air.
The offending segment featured Goldberg and Behar making controversial comments about a political figure, causing a firestorm of criticism and demands for the hosts to be held accountable.
In response, the network issued a statement saying that they took the concerns raised by viewers very seriously and were committed to creating a safe and respectful environment for all viewers.
As part of this commitment, they announced the immediate termination of Goldberg and Behar, both of whom had been with the show for over a decade.
“We understand that this decision may be unpopular with some fans of the show,” the statement read. “But we believe that it is in the best interests of our viewers and our network to take swift and decisive action to address the concerns that have been raised.”
The news has sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry, with many expressing their support for the fired hosts and questioning the network’s decision.
“The View” has been a staple of daytime television for over 20 years, with Goldberg and Behar becoming beloved figures to many viewers.
ABC has not yet announced who will replace Goldberg and Behar on the show, but insiders say that they are already searching for new hosts who will be better suited to the current climate of political correctness and cancel culture.
In the meantime, fans of “The View” are left to ponder the future of the show and whether it will be able to survive without its two most iconic hosts. Only time will tell if ABC’s decision to fire Goldberg and Behar will ultimately prove to be the right one.
