Whoopi Goldberg Exits ‘The View’ with a Theatrical Twist Amidst Miranda Lambert Controversy: ‘I’m Leaving Y’all’

Whoopi Goldberg surprised “The View” audience last week by playfully storming off stage during a live broadcast. The incident was triggered by the recent controversy surrounding singer Miranda Lambert, who paused a concert to scold fans for taking photos of her while she was performing. Contrary to critics’ expectations, Whoopi Goldberg’s departure from the show was done in jest and not a genuine exit. Viral recordings captured Whoopi storming off while the co-hosts debated Miranda Lambert’s actions. Some reviewers had anticipated more complex scenes.

Miranda Lambert made headlines when she unexpectedly halted her performance to admonish fans taking pictures during the concert. Considering the likely higher cost of Miranda Lambert’s tickets, concertgoers often capture moments to share on social media or keep as mementos. “The View” co-hosts were in disagreement over various aspects of Miranda Lambert’s behavior, including whether she was justified in berating the audience and whether concert attendees should be allowed to take photos.

Whoopi Goldberg, overwhelmed by the discussion, turned to the audience and theatrically declared, “I’m leaving, y’all.” Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin attempted to address the controversy impartially, urging Lambert not to mock her fans, especially if they were innocently taking pictures. Whoopi Goldberg chimed in, stating it’s impolite for fans to take selfies, emphasizing they came to see the performance they paid for.

Another host, Sara Haines, observed that the individuals scolded by Miranda Lambert for taking selfies were seated close to the stage. The debate ensued on whether Lambert was justified in berating them, stopping the show, and causing a scene. Sunny Hostin suggested Miranda Lambert was at fault, referencing the cost of VIP seats at $757, the location where the selfie incident occurred.

Whoopi Goldberg responded to Sunny Hostin, suggesting that those finding it difficult to give up taking selfies should “stay home.” This led to a further exchange, with Whoopi trying to reinforce her stance by getting a photo with a live audience member. The effectiveness of her attempt is subjective and open to interpretation.
