Whoopi Goldberg has been criticised online for a joke she made about Mariah Carey‘s physique during an episode of her hit show ‘The View.’
The show’s cast was joined by the actor Jerry O’Connell and quizzed him on the role he played in Carey’s ‘Heartbreaker’ visual. It was then, as Sunny Hostin pointed out that the video was released 20 years ago, that Goldberg suggested that it was released “20 bodies ago.”
She’s so mean omg

.@WhoopiGoldberg needs to clarify what she meant by "20 bodies ago" on @TheView when referring to Mariah Carey – body or slut shaming? The fact that she mumbled it under her breath only proves that she was knowingly vile, disgusting and unprofessional. She should apologise.
