Barbara Corcoran Apologizes for Fat Shaming Whoopi Goldberg


Shark Tank investor Barbara Corcoran apologizes after making a fat joke at Whoopi Goldberg's expense on The View... 

It all started when the ladies were discussing a new brand of bluejeans and Whoopi asked if the jeans would fit over her "Covid butt" making light of the weight a lot of people put on during lock down. That's when super slim guest Barbara Cororan joked that she would take the material from Whoopi's jeans and make herself 'two pairs'. 


After getting dragged for fat shaming Barbara issued an apology and Whoopi accepted.

It's getting ridiculous now. Soon saying 'good morning' will be deemed problematic to some ...

Barbara actually looks great. Whoopi is the one looking like a bloated M&M on the verge of melting. Whoopi should not be offended. She wasnt offended when Mel Gibson said the N word

I like Barbara's business acumen and her book is highly recommended for aspiring entrepreneurs, whether they went to college or not.

That being said, we tend to forget that lice demons/mayo on white/yt folks have different standards of beauty. Even if someone is curvy with a small waistline, they're still considered full-figured unless they wear a size 6 or smaller.
I've seen Whoopi much larger but for a woman to publicly criticize another woman's physique is low.

The come back comment from the other co-host was hilarious. She told Barbara that her dress has been worn by two other View guest.

That’s what Whoopi gets for kowtowing and hee-heeing with these worthless white women who aren’t worthy to clean her shoes.

I don't get it they both were making jokes about the weight they gained and because she said something they got mad. Really

Whoopi is a comedian and I didn't think Barbara meant anything malicious when she made that joke but I did find it a little awkward.

There is nothing good looking about Barbara, she looks like an old hag. She could pass for Joan Rivers twin sister.

The joke was corny AF but people need to lighten up. This PC shit is getting out of control. Everybody's a protected class (overweight, anorexic, gay, bi, trans, Asian, Native American, Karen, Brothers who date Becky, etc) except for Black women.

That's my opinion if you don't like it you can kiss my BLACK ASS. You're the one who needs to admit you're a black bootlick and go. The nerve of some bitches like you.

Those groups are tired of being everyone's punchline. Black women could create the same firestorm but we're too loyal to disrespectful people (black men). We excuse all the disrespect, misogyny, sexism, and chauvinism because we don't want to be "that girl" that can't take a joke, takes herself too seriously blah blah blah, because heaven forbid we give black men an "excuse" to date/marry/fuck someone who isn't black. However, those other groups you mentioned, they know their worth and their self-respect, and self-image is too important to compromise for a punchline. When black women, collectively, know and decide to stand up for their rights and not allow disrespect then we'll start seeing the same protections and provisions as those other minority groups.

Whoopi didn't react like a friend who's used to being clowned by another friend. That look, that Whoopi gave the camera lol told me all I needed to know. Whoopi wasn't prepared for that quip. Which is surprising considering how long she's been doing standup lol smh. And Ana lol I love Ana...she was more quick witted than the comedian who's been telling jokes for 35+ years lol smh. Whoopi should've said something like, lol I don't think your bulimia would allow for that...something!

@Unknown,
I can't disagree with you. A lot of Black women are loyal to a fault, and mostly to our own detriment. I believe most of it stems from hundreds of years of witnessing our men being brutalized and mistreated, leaving us with an innate desire to protect our own. And even with plenty of examples of Black men not returning the favor of protecting us (e.g. rap music), we still can't shake these counterproductive behaviors because slavery did a hell of a job on us in more ways than I can count. Not to mention the system has been rigged so that we're continuously encouraged to keep hating one another via colorism, texturism, classism, etc.

Some of these other groups (including LatinX which I forgot to mention) maintain a sense of collective pride and community in spite of their ethnic, geographical or nationalistically diverse backgrounds because they weren't taught to hate one another. They're ingrained to believe in a unified struggle or a unified stance. Black people, on the other hand, are still figuring out where we even stand in this country 400 years later.

And funny you mentioned punchlines because Dave Chappelle said everything I was thinking in The Closer when he talked about being accused of "punching down" on his transgender friend. Like him, I believe you can disagree with someone's lifestyle or personal choice and still treat them like a human being. I also think society has become ultra sensitive mainly because old wounds are being opened up and new wounds are being created in ways we've never seen before. Nowadays the lines between opinion, intentional degradation and comedy are completely blurred. So since everyone has some area of sensitivity, I guess we'll always be at risk of offending someone.

As for scarecrow Barbara, I used to be a huge fan of Shark Tank so I know she thinks she's hella witty and clever. She used to make smart ass comments to the other Sharks all the time so I don't think she meant to be hurtful. I just think she tried being funny and it bombed. I personally think Whoopi might've been ok with the joke at a dinner party vs national TV. But she's been hanging with them white women and practicing political correctness entirely too long, which is why she choked. Good for Ana recovering the ball but 1991 Whoopi would've torn her a new one.

You all are so fucking hateful. King of the Real, yo black ass stay sucking up to white and light skin bitches.

Ms. Mac, I agree 1000000%.

@ms mac

I hear you, but, you've described the problem and my point - black women are too stuck thinking about black men (generational mentality from slavery through Jim Crowe, through the crack era, and now through police brutality), as if black men didn't inherit wounds watching black women get raped, or seeing their infants fed to animals as bait, while having their own manhood removed or denied via castration, or being raped repeatedly with objects and dicks- we are all wounded. The difference is, black men have moved on and don't allow all those atrocities to affect their growth or livelihood. Black men have been given more autonomy than most racial minorities. And even with that little ounce of miniscule power, over black women, you'd think they'd uplift us to some degree, or work in some way to alleviate our pain or stress? Nope. They encourage and manipulate our pain, and our emotions. If we're not screaming loud enough after one of them has been gunned down, then they go back to manipulating our emotions to make us put there pain and their growth above our own.

Even when it comes to something as basic as fidelity, monogamy, marriage, and building back communities, black men can't be bothered to get involved or stick around unless the woman is yt, or unless the yt man has gentrified the area enough for him to safely invest in it.

And I'm glad you brought up Dave Chappelle's special, because I agreed with a lot of his points too. But the most laughable had to be when I thought about how his hundreds of millions of dollars are going to be left to an Asian woman living in a redneck city / town that doesn't even circulate his wealth (taxes) to black people (his primary demographic). But again, to quote Paul Mooney: black people are like an old hound dog; just loyal to a fault.

The King of the Real is some white person masquerading as a black person. I can't tell if they're a white boy or white girl, but they're definitely a white person. You can tell by just reading their comments.

Also, other racial communities have a greater sense of cultural pride because the primary culture involves an European aesthetic. Notice how in almost every racial group, are a darker subset that bears a strong resemblance to Africans/Negroids in Asian (Arab/Middle Eastern) and Latinx groups, but in the media the primary groups pushed to the forefront are either yt passing, or look closer to an acceptable European balance. And just like Dave mentioned in his standup, anytime you have a group that includes yt (or yt passing), that community sees tremendous growth in visibility, and equality. The same is true for those other groups. They have a primary aesthetic that's not directly offensive, and CAN be celebrated among ALL groups. Can the same be said about black ppl and what we value as a culture? A culture that using "nigga" interchangeably - but no other group can say it - a culture that glamorizes sexism, chauvinism, criminality, and drugs - these are the values of our culture that's projected worldwide. Why would a diverse group of people want to celebrate or recognize violence, degradation, crime, and sexism? Yet, this is what black women support (collectively; or silently), and then ask: why aren't we celebrated in the same vein as Hispanics?

That doesn't surprise me. RWS, and other blogs, have been infiltrated by foreign bots and yt nationalists that keep spreading misinformation and chaos under black profiles on black blogs (primarily). It's almost as if they're trying to spread this narrative that blacks are pushing the misinformation, racism, and division. It's definitely not a coincidence that there's been an uptick in accusations and online statements being pushed under black pseudonyms smdh

ms mac said...

All good points Unknown. I have no argument with anything you've said. I also usually side eye the hell out of Chapelle and any other Black man who cries about Black people's struggles but ensure their legacy and wealth aren passed on through their non-Black woman. However, I realize that sometimes you gotta separate the message from the messenger.

@ Anonymous, Yes, these trolls have been putting in some serious overtime lately, aren't they?
