Whoopi Goldberg walked off ‘The View’ amid a chat about foot fetishes

The comic and actress, 68, temporarily left the set of the ABC talk show when her co-hosts started to discuss an advice column in which an anonymous person said his wife stopped allowing him to give her foot massages after he told her he had a fetish.

Whoopi’s fellow presenter Alyssa Farah Griffin, 34, said: “You have to entertain your partner’s kink, within reason.”

It prompted Whoopi to say: “Excuse me for a second,” before she left the stage and said: “Keep talking!”

Alyssa then joked: “Whoopi has left the building.”

When panellist Joy Behar, 81, asked Whoopi when she returned why she had briefly walked away, the ‘Ghost’ actress did not give a straight answer, but appeared to hand something to someone off-camera.

She then joked: “I was so enamoured by what you were saying that I felt that I needed to take a breath so I could just get myself together, so I could come back to the table!

“So, I just got up and walked away and just got myself together!”

When Joy responded: “This is what my feet do to people,” Whoopi went on: “This is what this conversation does to people. It makes them get up and move.”

She concluded: “I don’t care ’cause my feet are huge, and no one wants to touch them!”

Whoopi is no stranger to leaving the table during ‘The View’ when topics come up that have no interest for her.

Last year, she star removed herself from the stage over a heated debate regarding Miranda Lambert’s decision to stop a concert and yell at fans who were taking selfies.

During the July 2023 episode, Whoopi seemed annoyed when she brought up the topic to her co-hosts, even rolling her eyes and letting out a sigh while giving background on the story.

The TV host took Miranda’s side, saying fans should’ve shown “at least a little respect” during the country singer’s show.

When her co-host Sunny Hostin, 55, said she should be able to take as many selfies as she wants after paying nearly $800 for tickets, Whoopi appeared aggravated, stood up from her seat and made her way into the audience – saying: “I’m leaving, y’all!”, and proceeding to take selfies with audience members to prove her point before the show went to an ad break.
