Whoopi Goldberg Faces Backlash for Inappropriately Asking Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin About Pregnancy on Live TV

In a recent episode of ‘The View,’ Whoopi Goldberg faced criticism from fans after she abruptly questioned her co-host, Alyssa Farah Griffin, about her pregnancy status. The incident occurred while Whoopi was discussing the state of the country and unexpectedly asked Alyssa if she was pregnant.

During the conversation, Whoopi expressed her concerns about the division in the United States, emphasizing that it affects people from various backgrounds. Then, out of the blue, she turned to Alyssa and asked, “Are you pregnant?”

Alyssa, clearly surprised, responded with a firm “No” and expressed her discomfort, particularly because her mother-in-law had been eagerly anticipating news of her pregnancy. She asked Whoopi if she appeared pregnant, to which Whoopi replied, “Yes!” before realizing the inappropriateness of her comment and beginning to apologize.

Sunny Hostin chimed in, suggesting they place bets on Alyssa’s potential pregnancy. Alyssa clarified that while she and her husband were considering it, she had not yet been blessed with a pregnancy.

X users were quick to react to the exchange, with one commenting on the viral video, “Asking another woman about her pregnancy on live TV is incredibly rude. Why not inquire off-camera before the show?” Another user remarked, “This was incredibly RUDE,” while someone else stated, “Such a question should never be asked in a professional setting!” One user expressed their shock and embarrassment, while another emphasized the importance of letting Alyssa announce any pregnancy news on her terms.
