“The issue is not the Academy…Even if you fill the Academy with black and Latino and Asian members, if there’s no one on the screen to vote for, you’re not going to get the outcome that you want,” Whoopi explained.

She added, “I won once, so it can’t be that racist. I’ve been black the whole time.”

You can reduce the load virus so low now in someone’s body that the risk of passing it on to someone else is practically zero,” David added. “What hasn’t changed is the mindset associated with knowing your status and testing and then living a positive happy life if you are HIV-positive and staying on the medications.”

Whoopi Goldberg Jokes About The View's Rotating Co-Hosts

The View returned on Tuesday (September 8) with all the brand new co-hosts – and Whoopi Goldberg made a joke about the numerous hosts coming and going on the talk show.

“Well, hell guys it’s nice to be back,” Whoopi said. “I do think though that cups would be nice.”

Joy Behar, who is back this season after leaving back in 2013, asked what was wrong.

“They’re cups, but where are the pictures of the faces? We used to have faces because people stuck around,” Whoopi said. Joy then quipped about the stickers on the mugs instead of their faces, “Well, this is in case they want to get rid of any of us. They can just pull this off!”
