At the start of the show, the ladies walked to their seats, where an elaborate array of food was laid out on the table.

Moderator Whoopi Goldberg detailed the delicious meals that were prepared, including cranberry meatballs, stuffing, stuffed mushrooms, mac & cheese bites, and mini whoopie pies.

The camera zoomed in on the hot dishes, though it soon became apparent that those on the panel were the only ones getting a taste.

Whoopi informed viewers that the recipes for the appetizers were listed on The View’s official Instagram page, making it known that those watching were not getting a bite.

The move angered fans who thought it was inconsiderate of the hosts not to share their Turkey Day feast with the studio audience.

One person voiced their frustrations in a tweet: “The co-hosts eating, of course, in front of the audience! #TheView.”

Another agreed, tweeting: “Is #TheView crew just gonna eat in front of a live studio audience… and NOT share with them?”

While a third called the hosts’ behavior “rude and disrespectful.”

CAUGHT RED-HANDED

At one point, Whoopi called out her co-host, Joy Behar, for eating while she was discussing a serious topic.

The 67-year-old opened the show by telling the audience that she was looking out for breaking developments in the Chesapeake Walmart shooting, in which a manager gunned down eight people on Tuesday.

“Please don’t forget those who are not going to be as fortunate and really try to be thankful because tomorrow is never promised,” she said sincerely.

“It’s a Thanksgiving show, and we want to be up and rolling with it, but it’s very hard to start these shows sometimes…”

Whoopi then paused as a loud crunching noise could be heard.

Turning to Joy, 80, the Sister Act star had a shocked look on her face as she asked: “What are you eating?”

“We weren’t supposed to start yet, Joy,” Sunny Hostin, 54, chimed in, referring to the food on the table.

Joy looked guilty and covered her mouth as she said: “I wasn’t eating the food. It was a Tic Tac.”

The veteran panelist clapped back: “You have super sonic hearing!”

“That was super loud,” said Alyssa Farrah Griffin, 33.

Whoopi gestured to the studio audience and agreed: “They heard it over there!”

“I’m sorry,” Joy backed down.

WHOOPI’S WILD RANT

Whoopi continued their next discussion for their Hot Topics segment, which erupted when she went on a heated rant at the audience.

The actress first showed a clip from Dr. Anthony Fauci’s final press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic, which took place on Tuesday.

In the briefing, he reminded the public of the importance of being vaccinated, boosted, and getting tested before heading to Thanksgiving gatherings.

Whoopi, who recently recovered from Covid-19, doubled down on the Chief Medical Advisor’s words.

“Let me explain something to you as someone who’s just come off it again,”  she shared.

“Not a nice, light… I came off a tough a** Covid, okay?”

She wagged her finger and raised her voice as she continued: “You don’t wanna get this. It’s not funny. You don’t want this. This will kill you!

“What the matter with you people?”

Joy Behar chimed in: “Well, the reason it didn’t kill you is because you’ve been boosted.”

“Yes!” agreed Whoopi.

The OG panelist continued: “If you’re not boosted, you could die. That’s the point.

“People write on Twitter or someplace, ‘You see, Whoopi got it, and she has the vaccinations.’

“Yeah, but Whoopi is sitting there. She’s not in a casket, thankfully!”

The audience clapped in response.
