Whoopi Goldberg “The View” (March 13, 2017)

*Whoopi Goldberg went off on Monday’s episode of “The View” while addressing a recent article about her that she dubbed “fake news,” and its impact on the safety of her family.

The post on this particular website, Whoopi says, incorrectly reported that she said Carryn Owens, wife of a fallen Navy SEAL, made an appearance at Donald Trump’s joint address to Congress for “attention.”

“It endangered my family’s life, it endangered my life,” Goldberg stated, explaining how the site which the article was posted on was created by a guy who “just wanted to see how quickly stories he made up were quickly spread.”

“[The thing is] if you say Whoopi did this, people just assume it’s true because nobody has to prove anything,” she told her co-hosts on “The View.”

Addressing the man, who’s in Costa Rica, she said she is going to try to get some legislation going. “If you’re going to involve someone in fake news, you should have their permission. You shouldn’t be able to put stuff out there, ‘cause clearly you don’t care what could’ve happened to me or to my family,” Whoopi continued. “Or the fact that there’s a lot of people who said, ‘No, I know you said it.’ Well actually, if you go on The View site I said the exact opposite.”

“Man, I’m telling you. You cost me money because I had to protect my family…Costa Rica is not big enough for the lawsuit that’s coming your way,” she added.
