Whoopi Goldberg Criticized For Mariah Carey Body Comments

Whoopi Goldberg Criticized For Mariah Carey Body Comments

Whoopi Goldberg is facing ample online backlash after making a snide comment about Mariah Carey's body.

Earlier today, Goldberg sat down with actor Jerry O'Connell — who played Carey's love interest in the 1999 "Heartbreaker" music video — on The View. However, after co-host Sunny Hostin pointed out that the video happened 20 years ago, Goldberg decided to interject by murmuring, "20 bodies ago."

It's unclear what exactly Goldberg was trying to say but, naturally, fans of Carey were not pleased with Goldberg's comment, which was widely interpreted as body shaming. As such, the internet is calling for her to apologize.

However, this isn't the first time Goldberg's gotten in trouble for needlessly criticizing another woman and her body. Earlier this year, she found herself in hot water for arguing that Bella Thorne shouldn't have taken nudes — a comment that Thorne herself responded to via an emotional Instagram video.

"I'm not gonna lie, I wanna say that I feel pretty disgusting. I feel pretty disgusting, Whoopi, knowing that everyone's seen my shit. And I just want to say that me watching this interview made me feel bad about myself," Thorne said. "I hope you're happy. I really do. I hope you're so fucking happy."

That said, Goldberg has yet to respond to this latest backlash.
