Whoopi Goldberg Vows to Come After Fake News Story Writer

Whoopi Goldberg was the victim of a fake news story and she says she is “coming” for the person who wrote it after it “endangered” her life.

A fake news story falsely stated that Whoopi believed a fallen Navy SEAL was celebrated during President Trump‘s address to a joint session of Congress just for attention.

“Before we left, something came out on a website — a fake news website — about me. And it endangered my family’s life and it endangered my life. It turns out the entire website was created by a guy who just wanted to see how quickly stories he made up would spread,” Whoopi said during the show on Monday (March 13). “If you say, ‘Whoopi did this,’ people just assume it’s true because nobody has to prove anything. I have had for the last 20 years great relationships with vets and their wives and the veteran’s administration, so when someone writes a bit of a horrible lie, as this man did — he accused me of saying that the woman that was celebrated by the current president, whose husband died, was doing it for the attention.”

“Now, normally people would have to actually have to look up to see what someone said. And when you look on our website, you can see everything that we say — our shows are posted. But unfortunately, people don’t do that,” Whoopi added.

Whoopi wants to have legislation passed so that fake news doesn’t get posted without the person’s permission.

“I know you’re in Costa Rica sir … If I hadn’t been made aware of this, I could have found out about this at the end of a barrel of a gun,” Whoopi said. “So I’m going to try and get some legislation going that says, ‘If you’re going to involve someone in fake news, you should have their permission. You shouldn’t be able to just put stuff out there.’ Because clearly you don’t care what could have happened to me, or to my family — or the fact that there’s a lot of people who said, ‘Well, I know you said it.’”

Whoopi said that she wants these protections in place even to benefit Trump.

“And just so we’re clear, just so we’re really clear, I want these protections in place for the current president, for his family, for my family. Because if you write something like that, or you write something that endangers his life or his family’s life, I’m just as angry at you,” Whoopi said. “So again, it is a lie, all you have to do is check the website and see what actually went on on the show that day. But sir, the fact that you don’t give a crap that it endangered me is unconscionable and I’m going to get my lawyer and I’m coming for you.”

Tiffany Trump is responding to Whoopi Goldberg after she made headlines at New York Fashion Week when some fashion editors reportedly would not sit next to her in the front row at a show.

This week, Whoopi spoke out in defense of Tiffany on The View.

“You know what, Tiffany, I’m supposed to go to a couple more shows. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m coming to sit with you….Because nobody’s talking politics. You’re looking at fashion! She doesn’t want to talk about her dad! She’s looking at the fashion!” Whoopi said. “And people say what is the difference between people boycotting Ivanka. There is a difference. That’s all about buying stuff. You’re buying stuff. This girl is looking at fashion, and she’s just looking at fashion”

“I don’t want to talk about your dad, but, girl, I will sit next to you. Because I’ve been there where people said, ‘We’re not going to sit next to you.’ I’ll find your ass and sit next to you!” Whoopi continued.

The seven-episode mini-series stars Guy Pearce, Mary-Louise Parker, Rachel Griffiths, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, and more. It is set to premiere in February.

Also in the cast are Carrie Preston, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jonathan Majors, and young Broadway talent Emily Skeggs and Austin McKenzie.

Leslie Jones Gives Tearful Thank You To Whoopi Goldberg! (Video)

Leslie Jones gets emotional while thanking Whoopi Goldberg for being her inspiration during her appearance on The View on Thursday (July 14).

“When I was young, my dad always let me listen to comedy albums. I always knew about comedy, I always loved comedy,” the 48-year-old Ghostbusters star expressed. “The day that I saw Whoopi Goldberg on television, I cried so hard, because I kept looking at my daddy going, ‘Oh my god. there’s somebody on TV that looks like me! She looks like me! Yay! I can be on TV! I can be on TV! I can do it! Look at her look at her! she looks just like me.”

“I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Leslie added. “Because now I know what I’m doing that when I put on that Ghostbusters suit, and little girls see me on TV now, now they’re gonna go, I can do it. You gave that to me, and I love you…and I love you for what you’ve done for black women, I love you for what you’ve done for black comedians, and I love you.”
