In a shocking turn of events, longtime co-host of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg, reportedly exploded in a fiery rage after being fired from the show.
According to sources close to the situation, Goldberg was “absolutely livid” when she received the news, which was delivered to her via a curt phone call from the show’s producers.
Goldberg, who had been a staple of the daytime talk show for over a decade, was apparently caught off guard by the decision, which came amid rumors of tensions between her and her fellow co-hosts.
Sources say that Goldberg had been butting heads with co-host Meghan McCain over political differences and had grown increasingly frustrated with the show’s producers over their handling of the situation.
“Whoopi was fuming when she found out that she was being fired,” said one insider. “She felt like she had been disrespected and mistreated by the show’s producers and was not going to go down without a fight.”
According to sources, Goldberg immediately stormed into the show’s studio, where she proceeded to unleash a stream of expletives and insults at the remaining co-hosts and producers. Witnesses say that she was so loud and angry that she could be heard from outside the building.
“Whoopi was in full-on meltdown mode,” said one witness. “She was screaming and cursing at everyone in sight, and it was clear that she was not going to leave without a fight.”
Despite attempts by security to calm her down, Goldberg reportedly refused to leave the studio and continued to rant and rave for several hours. Eventually, she was escorted off the premises by police, who had been called in to handle the situation.
As news of Goldberg’s outburst spread, many fans of “The View” expressed shock and dismay, with some even calling for a boycott of the show. However, others expressed sympathy for Goldberg, saying that she had been mistreated and deserved better.
Representatives for Goldberg and “The View” declined to comment on the situation, but sources say that the fallout from her explosive outburst is likely to be felt for months to come. Whether Goldberg will be able to salvage her career in the wake of this incident remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: she is not going down without a fight.
