Whoopi Goldberg Dubs Barbara Corcoran Weird While Responding to Her Apology for Fat-Shaming Joke

After the ‘Shark Tank’ star apologizes for body-shaming her on ‘The View’, the ‘Sister Act’ actress says that ‘it takes a lot more’ to offend her as the two have known each other for ’25 years.’

AceShowbizWhoopi Goldberg apparently isn’t bothered by Barbara Corcoran‘s joke. After the “Shark Tank” star apologized for body-shaming her on “The View“, the “Sister Act” actress said that her longtime pal is always “funny and weird.”

“She doesn’t have to [apologize], I know her. You know, this is the lady who threw away her birthday party to get into a coffin,” the 65-year-old actress told TMZ on Monday, October 11. “So Barbara’s always been funny and weird,” she added.

Whoopi went on saying, “And that’s who she is. And no, it takes a lot more to offend me.” The Emmy-winning artist further stressed that she has known Barbara “too long.” She noted, “We’ve known each other 25 years.”

Whoopi’s response came after Barbara issued an apology in a video she posted to her Twitter account in the wake of the online backlash, admitting that the comment she made in the October 7 episode of the daytime show “wasn’t funny.” She said in the clip, “I just came back from ‘The View’ and saw my old friend Whoopi. As you well know, she has a phenomenal sense of humor and I’ve known Whoopi for years.”

Barbara went on saying, “I made a joke at Whoopi’s expense, which I now realize wasn’t funny.” The self-proclaimed “NYC Real Estate Queen” continued, “For anyone who I may have offended unintentionally, I just wanted to say I really am very sorry.” She captioned her apology video, “Love ya Whoopi [love] #The View.”

Barbara faced backlash after she made an insensitive joke about Whoopi on “The View”. During the show, the group was talking about a “great” pair of jeans from Good American, when Whoopi asked, “Well, I have to try them. Will they fit this COVID [butt]?”

“The View” co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro assured her that they would. Whoopi then said, “Okay, just thought I would ask… Okay, if they fit three, no, two COVID butts, we’ll be fine.” Suddenly, Barbara chimed in, “When you get finished with those jeans and decide you don’t like them, give them to me. I’m gonna make two pairs.”

Upon hearing Barbara’s response, Whoopi appeared surprised. She didn’t smile and instead raised her arms in a shrug. Ana then came to her defense by taking a jab at Barbara’s floral dress. “Whoopi, let me just tell you something. Both Sara Haines and Jill Biden wore that dress already on TV,” she quipped. Barbara then quickly responded, “That’s not true!”
