Whoopi Goldberg Faces Backlash after Supposedly Body-Shaming Mariah Carey on 'The View'

Whoopi Goldberg faced major backlash after body-shaming Mariah Carey on her live TV show "The View," as people made sure not to let it pass.


On "The View," co-hosts sat to speak to Jerry O'Connell, who revealed he worked with Carey in the late '90s. Jerry starred as her love interest in the "Heartbreaker" music video in 1999, which was considered an iconic music video from twenty years ago.

As seen on a video posted by the official "The View" Twitter account, while her co-hosts were smiling and eagerly listening to their guest, Whoopi clearly looked unengaged in the story Jerry O'Connell was saying about working with the pop star. In fact, her body language clearly screamed: not interested. When the topic of years passed was brought up, she spoke up.


The Controversial Comment

While everyone reminisced about the two-decade-old video, Whoopi murmured: "twenty bodies ago," which meant Mariah's body definitely changed in the past twenty years.


What people also seemed to notice was the fact that Whoopi said this under her breath, which might have proven she had hidden anger against Mariah.

Comment Interpretations

Some fans even asked if she was being body-shamed or slut-shamed, as "twenty bodies ago" could have easily meant her weight or the people she's slept with.


Regardless, Whoopi Goldberg is facing criticism for her comment because of the fact that Mariah actually feels good about her shape at the moment, and she's only been with five men in her life.

Contrary to popular belief, the "We Belong Together" singer reveals she's only been with five people in her life.

“I’ve only been with five people in my life, so I’m kind of a prude, honestly, compared to most others in the field,” she shares with Cosmopolitan.


As for the incident with Whoopi Goldberg, she has yet to issue a statement or an apology to Mariah Carey.
