Christina Ricci, a well-known actress and horror icon, appeared on Wednesday’s edition of The View.
As Whoopi introduced her, she revealed that Christina had previously been on the show via Zoom due to the pandemic.
Christina responded: “That’s right! I had completely forgotten I did that too. because when you’re in your own home you just forget things.”
Joy Behar said: “Where did those years go by the way? It’s been like two years.”
Then, Sunny chimed in: “We did the show from home for almost a year and a half.”
That’s when Whoopi dropped the NSFW and the awkward comment about her undergarments.
Whoopi said: “I’ve had to wear underwear this entire time since we’ve returned.”
Christina expressed her displeasure at having to wear “regular shoes” while the other hosts awkwardly laughed.
Whoopi Goldberg apologized to the show’s shocked viewers after she accidentally said an offensive term on live tv.
The incident occurred as the hosts were discussing Donald Trump and his alleged connection with Stormy Daniels.
Whoopi Goldberg used an offensive slang term for the word “cheated” while discussing Trump supporters.
The moderator said: “The people who still believe that he got gy**ed somehow in the election, will still believe that he cared enough about his wife to pay that money from his personal thing.”
The term stems from the word “gy**y,” which is “commonly used to describe the Romani people but… carries many negative connotations,” according to NPR.
After spotting Whoopi using the slur, one fan sent the article to Whoopi and begged her not to use the term again on social media.
Another shocked viewer wrote: “Whoopi, did I hear you right? Did you just say ‘gy**ed??’”
Whoopi addressed the situation and apologized after seeing the online criticism.
She said: “You know when you’re a certain age, you use words that you know from when you’re a kid or you remember saying, and that’s what I did today, and I shouldn’t have.
“I should have thought about it a little longer before I said it, but I didn’t, and I should have said ‘cheated,’ and I used another word, and I’m really, really sorry.”
