Whoopi Goldberg Had Enough Of Miranda Lambert Conversation and Walks Off Set – Watch

Whoopi Goldberg walked off the set of The View on Tuesday after a heated debate over Miranda Lambert’s recent comments about fans taking selfies at her concerts.

The discussion began when co-host Sunny Hostin played a clip of Lambert telling fans to put their phones away and “watch the show” during her Las Vegas residency. Hostin said that she agreed with Lambert, and that she thought it was rude for fans to take selfies during concerts.

Hostin argued that if she had paid as much for front row tickets as Lambert’s fans had, she would not feel bad at all about taking a few selfies to remember the moment.

“Tickets in the VIP section that they were in are $757,” Hostin said. “Imma take as many selfies as I want if I paid $757. I’m sorry. Just me.”

“Stay home,” Goldberg shot back, arguing that someone willing to pay that much for tickets ought to want to be there for the show. “If you’re gonna spend $750,000 to — $750 to come to my concert, then give me the respect of watching me while I’m doing my thing. Or don’t come.”

“Maybe I wanna play it again,” Hostin continued to argue, saying that if she wanted to be able to have her picture with the music in the background, she should be allowed to do that.

Goldberg got up from her chair, saying, “Turn on the television, girl,” as she walked away from the table.

“Where are you going?” cohost Joy Behar asked, and Hostin echoed the question.

The debate became increasingly heated, and Goldberg eventually walked off the set. She said that she was “leaving y’all” and that she wanted to take a picture with a 91-year-old woman in the audience.

Lambert made headlines when she stopped her show to address the women taking selfies in the front row, saying, “These girls are worried about their selfies and not listening to the song. It’s pissing me off a little bit. We’re here to hear some country music tonight. And I’m singing some country damn music.”
