The View fight this morning was pretty massive – watch as Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walk out during a fight with Bill O’Reilly in this video clip of the Bill O’Reilly View interview.
When Bill O’Reilly’s on The View, you know it’s not going to be all happy fun times, but O’Reilly apparently pushed Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to their breaking points, forcing them to walk off the stage rather than continue to argue against the opinionated Fox News host.
The View interview with Bill O’Reilly quickly turned heated when discussion of the mosque to be built near ground zero was the topic. “Sure, they have a right to do it,” O’Reilly said, “but it’s inappropriate because a lot of the 9/11 families who I know, say, ‘look, we don’t want that.’”
O’Reilly added that 70 percent of Americans don’t want the mosque built there. Whoopi asks why it’s inappropriate and O’Reilly answers, “Because Muslims killed us on 9/11.”
Whoopi’s comment was bleeped and Behar said, “I don’t want to sit here now” before walking off with Goldberg right behind her.
Bill O’Reilly can get a lot of people’s feathers ruffled, no doubt about it.
Barbara Walters called out Joy and Whoopi on their lack of professionalism in the situation, saying, “You have just seen what should not happen … we should be able to have discussions without washing our hands and screaming and walking off stage. I love my colleagues, but that should not have happened.”
What do you think of The View fight with Bill O’Reilly? Would you have walked off too, like Joy and Whoopi?
